    They're equal. Think about it: The gold medals went to worthy teams who gave underwhelming long programs. The silvers went to under-the-radar teams who hit on the right night. And the bronze.....two disasters by S/S. :wuzrobbed:

    Best triple axel:
    Han Yan
    or
    Yuzuru Hanyu

    That sounds about right. :wuzrobbed: for S/S

    They both have massive 3 a! I would go for Yuzuru's since he can do pretty much anything with 3a--transition, amazing combo.

    Best pair throw jump:
    V/T's 3loop throw
    or
    S/S's 3flip throw

    they were both awesome but I'll go with Granny on account of her relative consistency.

    Yu-Na Kim (the coverage :eek:)
    Sarah Meier (those toe picks :swoon:)
    Tonya Harding (Jurassic proportions :scream:)
    Denise Biellman ("women aren't supposed to be able to do that" :revenge:)
    Nancy Kerrigan (textbook. :COP:)

    I want Chan to win but skating needs a clean SP for Takahashi more.

    Belita Jepson-Turner
    or
    Katherine Healy?

    Belita. Katherine was yuppy trash according to that one fluff piece. :rolleyes: :)P)

    Evil aliens have forced you to stick a metaphorical fork in one of the following. Who do you pick?
    Daisuke's career
    Abbott's career
    Weir (as a commentator)
    Buttle + Unknown husbands marriage
    Frank Carroll's coaching career
    or
    Rohene Ward's choreography

    You've just outed yourself as eville :eek:

    I prefer Johnny the Joke & Trashy Tara. Scott and Sandra belong to another era....

    I really don't have preference. I rather search for european feeds where I cannot understand a thing they say and fully rejoice in skating itself:p

    Tara and Scott would make better duo I guess.

    Whose performance at men's SP at Sochi was more inspired and shocking in a great way?
    Peter Liebers
    Alexander Majorov
    Brian Joubert:cheer:

    I avoid them too, actually. Austrian feed is :kickass

    Joubert for the comeback voids (STICK IT Didier :mad:) With a clean long program, he may secure the necessary endorsements to fund the launch of his porno career. :encore: (I'm his agent :sekret:)

    No. I seriously doubt it, at any rate. At worst, he'd be guilty of "faking" something that was real to begin with (and again, I really don't think that's the case here).

    More bittersweet for you as a viewer:

    figure skating at the Vancouver Olympics
    figure skating at the Sochi Olympics so far
    purple what is this "bittersweetness" of which you speak?

    I think Sochi needs to be over before I can honestly answer that but I will still say it looks to be Sochi so far.


    Should women's ice hockey be cut from the Olympics?

    YES
    or
    NO
