Kimmie wins!


    Whew. I got nervous when Kimmie Meissner touched the ice during the finals of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. But then she finished the rest of her long program with speed and grace. I know it wasn’t nice, but I gave a little cheer when Meissner’s competitors’ stumbled during their programs, leaving the door open for Meissner to grab the crown even with her small slip. Now I have to remember to watch the Today show Wednesday, where the Baltimore Sun said today she was expected to appear. (If you miss it, Today’s online site offers a netcast following each airing you can watch online anytime) Then she’ll come back home to Bel Air until she and her fellow competitors, Emily Hughes and Alissa Czisny head to Toyko in March for the world championships.
