She may no longer be the headliner - that's the guy with the recently minted Olympic gold medal - but Sasha Cohen still commands attention every time she glides out on the ice. From her supple spirals and dizzying spins to her fiery intensity and porcelain doll beauty, the 2006 U.S. figure skating champion and Olympic silver medalist leaves no doubt that she's the leading lady of the Smucker's Stars on Ice national tour, which comes to Washington's Verizon...

Sasha Cohen, Kimmie Meissner and Emily Hughes aside, it's easy to think of these Winter Olympics as another depressing reality show, only without a lot of bad singing or Donald Trump and his lacquered hair reducing some poor apprentice to tears. Look at the pettiness and whining displayed by some of the happy band of brothers known as the U.S. team. Speedskaters Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick are feuding like a couple of middle-schoolers trying for the same girl. Downhill skier Bode Miller, a walking mood swing, has tanked in four of the five events he's entered and posted his fastest times running from the media.

Kimmie Meissner didn't bring a medal home from the Olympics, but she brought something that feels nearly as important. And this week, for the first time, she is finally able to test her newfound confidence on competitive ice. Only a month has passed since the Bel Air teenager placed sixth in the Winter Games, but already she has noticed a difference in her on-ice performance. "I think my skating, I'm going through something where I feel like I'm skating more mature," she said. "And I'm just more confident in everything that I do."

TURIN, Italy -- The judges for the Winter Olympics women's figure skating competition got it right. What fun is that? Of course, there was hardly any way they could have gotten it wrong after yesterday's long program. Not even the French judge would have dared try to fix this one. Skaters have complained that the ice at the Palavela is soft, but that was a good thing in this case. Considering how many of them fell on it, someone could have been seriously injured. The winner: the only one standing.

TURIN, Italy-- --The stars have fallen from the Olympic sky. By now you know the names: Michelle Kwan, Bode Miller, Johnny Weir, Apolo Ohno. Total medal count: one bronze among them. The skiers, the curlers and the hockey puck hurlers, one by one they've found disappointment at these Winter Games. There's one last big name set to make her debut tonight - figure skater Sasha Cohen - and one American underdog quietly waiting in the shadows. Kimmie Meissner, the youngest member of Team USA, sure seems like a big deal around Maryland, doesn't she?

WASHINGTON - Michelle Kwan's face was a mask of intensity. The American was skating what she later described as a career-matching best performance, and the grace of her spins and spirals and the beauty of her jumps could be said to have brought serenity to the faces in her audience. But Kwan's face was not serene. "It's the poker face I use when I'm playing cards with my family," she said after finishing first in the women's short program at the 2003 world championships. "It was my game face.

Yeah, so maybe she's tiny enough to shop at GAP Kids. And true, she's got enough sass to give figure skating's top brass a bundle of nightmares. But is there any Olympian as cool as Sasha Cohen? Doubtful. After all, Friday night, there she was, grinning away on a cold Utah night, handing President Bush her cell phone -- in the middle of the opening ceremony, no less! -- asking if he wanted to chat with her mom. She even shared a smirk with the Commander in Chief in the process. It's really no surprise.
