Skating is back, and so is our annual post about what the Americans wore to zip around the ice and do fancy, death-defying tricks! For Reasons, I wasn’t able to watch Nationals this weekend, so (as is often the case) I look to the skating fans in Fug Nation to share news, intel and — as always, and perhaps most importantly — scurrilous skating gossip.

Because we don’t have all day here, I’ve pulled the looks from the top four finishers in each category for discussion, but if there’s someone you think needs to be addressed, please mention them in the comments! Also of interest to me: Your opinions about how the United States might do at Worlds, especially if the Russians aren’t invited. (Are they?)
