    He should be given his own brand of rye bread: Ry Brad.

    Yes, I think Weiss threw it and Ryan caught the pass.

    Caryn Kadavy just exudes class and grace.

    Karen is in better physical shape than some of the much younger current US skaters.

    Leonova and Khvalko (?) They apprear in most of Brian's specials and always impress with their skills.

    Michael Weiss continues to impress me with how much he's improved as a "pro" skater - he really engages the audience.

    that commercial where richard says he is grandpa smucker looks like a prequel to a slasher flick where richard kills everyone with jelly jars

    that pop up tape looks like it would be handy to delint my pants

    Leonova and Khvalko, who do the special every year (he has appeared alone in the past when she was pregnant.)

    Is Gev gonna have his own Pandora commercial? He's getting more ice time than my Bri.

    They must figure that people who would watch skating will donate.

    Kadavy was good- really stood out. So did N/B. Boitano really owned it.

    Again, So You Think You Can Dance finalist. Why, who knows, as I said before, he's taking the place of Dan Hollander and/or Steven Cousins, who they actually let skate without schtick. I was just shocked when Gev actually got on skates & did his B-Boy moves on the ice in said skates.

    He was also in the land of the Fighten' Irish, obviously, hence the Leprechan.

    Yes, I googled him. It was more of a rhetorical question. I was amazed too by his skating skills, although the standing on his head thing was a tad repetitive by the fourth time I saw it. Not every skate fan watches SYTYCD. :slinkaway

    Ah! Gev is Akop's son. That's the FS connection. I remember Ari and Akop in shows back in the glory days of pro skating.

    He's Akop's son? I didn't know that! Ari & Akop were a lot of fun. That also must be why the guy can skate!
