But at least 1 Canadian skater/team managed to land on the podium at all grand prix events. while the US were shut out at Skate Canada and Cup of China.

By my count, this is what the team trophy would look like based on the results of the 2013 worlds. I picked The top 9 countries plus Ukraine. I gave Japan, Ukraine and Spain a 3 point on the pairs sho

Boston has been chosen as the US Candidate for Worlds 2016. Other confirmed bidder is Helsinki.

Boston would make a good Figure Skating World Champs host and setting in 2016. They'll probably get it; and then Helsinki hosts in 2017. Then Sochi in 2018 as is the ongoing pattern, it seems.

yup. since Helsinki will be pretty much a neutral ground. By the time 2016 Worlds roll around, it'll be 7 years since the last US Worlds and if Boston gets it, will be their first which is pretty surprising since most of the US skaters pre-61 crash were from the Boston area.

IF Boston gets it, of course, the crash victims of 1961 will be remembered. And then look at the year a Worlds comes to their area (and I am sure with the recent events in Boston still fresh in everyone's minds)...it will be 2016. Is that some sort of spooky numerology or what? :blink:

nothing spooky nor coincidental about the numbers. 2016 will mark 55 years of the since the crash that led to the cancellation of Prague 1961 Worlds. just a note, next year's US Nationals will be the centennial and Boston is also hosting it.

Of course it's spooky. And 55 isn't really a "special" milestone year. It's usually 50, 60 or 75. So, I guess we just view numerology differently.
