US Figure Skating Championships...file under GAY

I know some of you may think there are some more pressing news articles I could be sharing...BUT....I just got finished watching one of my FAVORITE (and okay..only) sports events....*drumroll* please...The US National Figure Staking Championships. I was so excited that Mirai won...even though she can't yet compete at Worlds....studpid rules!

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Figure skating finally has its budding star.
Mirai Nagasu delighted the crowd — and herself — with a refreshing and entertaining show at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Saturday night. Oh yeah, the 14-year-old became the second-youngest woman to win the title, too.
The other mighty mite? Tara Lipinski, and she wound up doing all right for herself.
When her scores flashed, Nagasu looked at the screen with interest. When she heard she'd won, she said, "What?" then clapped her hands to her face, a big grin breaking across her face.
Nagasu is too young to go to the world championships; skaters now must be 15 by the previous July 1, and she doesn't even turn 15 until April. Rachael Flatt, who finished second, also is too young. Ashley Wagner was third.
