I sat down for the ladies' free skate at the 2016 US National championships, only to find these guys sitting next to me! Adam Rippon (who'd become the men's champion the next day) and Ross Miner (5th place).
I caught Carly Gold looking for her sister, Gracie, at the Xcel Energy Center on January 24, 2016. She stopped for a selfie and signed a photo I had taken of her. She and her sister are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet!
Mirai Nagasu had a meet-and-greet for fans at a skate shop in Bloomington, MN, before the competition began. I got to talk to her for over ten minutes. She is always smiling! And she's taller than I thought...
