    Okay, Kristi and Brian, I love you to death, but if you have to spout scripted banter, please try not to sound like you're spouting scripted banter.

    Ooh, Joannie got "Smile"! Love that song!

    If each program is only a minute or two for all the skaters, how are they going to stretch this into a two hour show??! :eek:

    Joannie = Tragedy to Triumph! Her story will long be remembered.

    I'm not a Nancy Kerrigan hater, but Nancy does that Pandora commercial as if a company representative were standing behind her and jabbing a red-hot pitchfork into her rear end.

    To counterbalance his bright personality of course. :)

    Sasha was gorgeous as usual, except that top really emphasized her boobs. No more pancake jokes for Ms. Cohen.

    I kept losing Evan every time he was by the back drape

    I didn't even recognize him at first. So far, I think he, Ryan, and Sasha have been the best.

    I think Evan just decided to ignore his music. :lol: I can't say I blame him. I've never heard it before.

    I turned it off after 15 minutes. Surprisingly, it's Flatt who impressed me--more so than Czisny and Joannie.

    Jeremy's routine did nothing for me at all (and I'm a JA fan)

    Flatt needs to skate to free herself from the music she's been using for comps!

    I need a free Rachael banner!

    Rachel skates slow regardless of the musical context but her basic presentation in the first improv number is way more believable and natural then the crap she has to perform in her be-cute-and-flirtatious competitive programs. And I liked that costume on her a lot. Plus...NO over the boot tights. :cheer2:

    Just how the hell are we to judge the routines when they keep showing the singing group! Total bullshit!

    So much for seeing the actual skating. Now that the band is performing live we won't see much of that anymore. :wall:

    I've enjoyed Alissa in this show. She can do all the things she does great (spins, spirals, etc) and not have to jump that much. :p

    I wonder what Foreigner's initial reaction was when they were invited to do this gig. They probably never imagined they'd be doing something like this.

    Most of Foreigner's songs are about sex. Picturing Rachael skating to Hot Blooded is :rofl:

    Can I vote for Jeff Buttle shilling for Scotch tape as being more entertaining than Evan's skating?

    Do you think he did a better job shilling for Scotch than Rachael did shilling for Cold-eeze? :lol: I think he did.

    Well if we can rate the performance in flogging sponsor's products I think JB has an unassailable lead going into the FP (Foreigner program).

    I saw Ryan Bradley and thought that was good and him talking about him being a "dirty white boy" at heart! LOL

    So Alissa does eat. I had been wondering. She loses the shilling competition.

    All eight routines performed to Foreigner (complete with continual cut-a-ways to the band) are up online @ http://www.coldeeze.com/vote/index.html. You don't have to watch the telecast.

    This is such crap.... NBC has the technology to use boxed screen within the main picture to display the band continually while leaving the skating to be shown in it's entirety. Likely those who perform in these Disson and Disson-like NBC productions have a clause in their contracts requiring this full screen cut-a-way technique.

    I won't bother to support this crap with my vote.

    That commercial about the smuckers kid getting no say in what he ends up doing when he grows up is kinda depressing...

    who thought that would be a good idea for a commercial?

    I like that dress on Rachael too. :)

    Still annoyed with the band getting too much attention during this show. :wall:

    Isn't coldeeze a new sponsor? I plan to vote just to reinforce their support for skating.

    (but i really came back to rag on Rachael's second improv outfit. ugh to the max. and back to over the boot tights that make her legs look fug.:scream: )

    Heh. I was just thinking that their sponsorship wasn't working. I have a cold and have no urge to buy their product. I'm sticking to soup and hot apple cider. But, you do have a point about voting.
