So further to the Tracy Wilson question, she did appear at the top of the CBC broadcast from Skate America giving an overview of the competition. I believe she was later on the NBC broadcast but haven't watched the DVR yet.

Brenda Irving seems to have stepped it up a notch this year. We are getting more knowledgeable comments from her instead of rehashed comments about the skater's personal histories.

Hi everyone!

I am sorry for the late notice...had a laptop dissolve in front of my very eyes and am still trying to ramp up the new one!!! (Feel my pain!)

It is nice to see that the CBC schedule is posted...and I wanted to let you know that we are trying something new for Skate Canada and that is live blogging in addtion to my tweeting @skatingpj with all of the event-related stuff as it unfolds. Live blogging at scribblelive.com is fun because we can post pics, videos (I got Bruce Davison yesterday) and small opinion pieces as well as it pulling in my tweets to that spot...

Here is the link:

Any questions or whatever - please feel free to be in touch...you guys have your fingers on the pulse of skating and I couldn't be more pleased to be part of this skating fraternity!

Cheers :)

Oh didn't see this in time for today, but it should be a big help for tomorrow when I can't see the Free Dance live. Only problem is it is asking for my login as if I am running the blog or something. Maybe this is just because it isn't active right now? (I hope)

Good job by TSN/CTV.

I love PJ, but there is something different when the commentators are in the arena. The interviews intros, montages and fluff pieces done by TSN tend to be flashier and glossier than CBC. But CTV can get repetitive--gee, Tessa is skating pain free? Patrick has world record scores? Javier is coached by Brian Orser? Elizaveta Tuktamisheva is a jumping machine? Okay, I get it!

I miss not seeing the medal ceremonies.

CTV provides far superior French Canadian coverage, though. Too bad our area does not get RDS2 coverage.

And no technical glitches, which CBC has a tendency to experience.

PJ, any chance for complete and live coverage of anything besides Worlds and GPF? 4CC or Jr Worlds, perhaps?

WOW! I'm excited to see so much coverage on CBC main station. For this WA state grrrl, it means I can watch some comps that won't get covered as fully on US channels.

:cheer2: Thanks, CBC!!! :cheer2:

PJ - is CoC is on Bold this Wednesday and Thursday?

I haven't watched the CBC coverage yet (the second one is on right now 1-2 a.m PST) because I've managed to stay unspoiled. So don't know if the schedule has been posted there. Then there's coverage on Vision tomorrow night. . .I don't know who is showing what, but BOLD is listed as showing all the free skates over four hours? I'm getting really confused and going through a lot of videotapes (I know, PRV is your best friend in such situations. . .).

If you're covering all the GPs delayed on BOLD I'd appreciate knowing the schedule - of course, ignore this request if it's been posted on CBC.

Many thanks.
