    Thank you for your blogs, pics, and reports! We just got home from DC last night, and had a wonderful time @ the show. ITA about the sound system with its problems. We had to train to hear the announcements during the beginning of the show. I don't have much to add (since the rest of you covered it so well), but we noticed a funny thing during the final bows. Ashley & Brian were standing together, sort of playfully "shaking their booty."

    We also loved the moment when Mike, Dan, & Ryan did backflips together. A friend sitting next to us was worried when Dan went back to the skater's entrance instead of coming back onto the ice. I said to her, that I thought he'd be back with Mike & Ryan for a triple threat backflip @ the end. Oh, when Brian B. was skating, my husband kept asking me if he would do his magnificent spread eagle. I assured him that he probably would, towards the end, and he did not disappoint!

    It will be a couple more days before I have my pics up. I took a LOT of photos and it's taking time to go through all of them. I have not yet decided if I will include that one in the set, but if I don't, I can PM it to you. How about that?

    Thanks! I just did some re-arranging/reuploading of files, etc. and hopefully now it should be final. :)

    Since my space on Flickr is limited (I use their free service, don't wish to pay) I don't foresee these pics staying up forever. Eventually I'll have to take them down, so enjoy them while you can. (However, you can relax- probably won't need to do so for a while)

    ETA: For those who follow me on Twitter, I tweeted some other pics that are not in the above album.
