    I really look forward to researching all his efforts. Like a lot of dreams and of skaters planned element sheets, I hope he is in life greater than the written word. My only problem is that he has the ear of Hersh. May he find a way to separate himself from the ego driven, inaccurate, biased, self serving, incongruous and jolting writing of Hersh. Can Jackie smell the ice, does he know the sound and FEEL of exquisite skating and report with pure in depth knowledge ? I hope so. Skating profoundly and desperately needs a champion of the art of skating.

    Fascinating? I would think Ice Network, who “published” the article, (and not PH on his own website) did so because of the GPF, during which presumably Jackie will also be doing yeoman’s work keeping us up to date with tweets.

    I have no idea why you have TODAY in caps or what TODAY has to do with Jackie.

    I'd like to take the time out to thank all the members of this forum who have selflessly posted live play-by-plays in our competition threads over the years. Running a site on your own is a thankless job, but when you have a community of folks that participate and/or take the time to put out good reports and other content, it makes it worth it!

    I don't know. He could have chosen last week or the week before and then everyone could have bought Rocker Gear after reading the article.

    I feel actually upset that I missed the deadline for rocker gear, I was a little late this year. wish there was any other way to support jackie?

    Also: fascinating article. I had NO idea jackie wasn't actually doing this fulltime and had another job as well?? I'm completely blown away.

    Jackie, you are true quality journalism.
    And like many elite skaters, you are also an inspiration to me and many other skating fans.

    also, I have met Jackie a couple of times, he is always busy, always with a laptop or something like that. So usually, I do not wanna disturb him. Just quietly walk by.
    But Jackie is a very nice guy, always acknowledge people (if you wanna say hello to him or have a little chat) and he is actually quite good-looking with a under-stated chic style.
