On another note, why on earth did the Japanese fed list TBA JPN for both pairs and dance when they basically only have one team in each discipline, both of whom are quite good (Takahashi/Tran and the Reeds)?

I can only guess, but I believe both pairs would automatically get only one assignment, but that one they were granted. So if the Japan Fed decided to go with TBA-s, they needed to be given other GPs too, and after that is settled, they can give them NHK as second (well, first chronologically) events .

Ah yes, that's probably the reason. A great way for the host country to get around the rules. :P

I want Yankowskas/Coughlin to be the first team to get the second spot.

Ohh. Now it makes sense! :lol: I thought it was the strangest thing.

I don't like I/B, but I don't hate them.

watching them live is a lot better than on TV, their synchronicity and maturity comes across well compared to many other teams.

(also watching them live, you don't get to hear any interviews...)

The ISU posted an updated Men's GP entries table with Johnny Weir's name crossed out, as expected.
No other changes to the table, and no replacements for Weir as of today.

Baldwin is proof that all the Chans in the world don't necessarily mature with age. :shuffle:

Or take off his shirt. :eek:

But seriously, I hope they do well. I would like them to win at least one competition off American soil before they retire.

They are reporting over at GoldenSkate that Mirai withdrew from a show in Japan due to an injury. Here is the Google translated web page :

I hope she recovers in time for her Grand Prix events. :(

^ I copied this post over to the "The Ice" show thread (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74256).

The website says:

Mirai Nagasu Orimashita THE ICE players appeared to have decided I no longer have to cast the ice for injuries.

It seems like quite a few skaters will not make the Grand Prix. Evan, Johnny, Evgeni, Joannie, Bebe. I hope Mirai doesn't have to withdraw. She still has a few months to recover.

Bebe officially retired this spring, and Evgeni is banned from competition.
