    It's pretty sexist, so yes.

    Will Japan's pairs/dance programs improve significantly in the next quad?
    yes, thanks to team event.
    non, :bribe: talks

    :)

    Yes, partly thanks to the team event and partly because of the gradual improvements that raised Takahashi/Tran to World medal status.

    on the night: flower ceremonies or medal ceremonies?

    Flower ceremonies because emotions are there right after they finished the competition. I like the old fashion btw. Flower and medal ceremonies together:mitchell:

    Which event was most emotional so far?
    Team event
    Pairs
    Men
    Ice dance

    Carolina, though I'd rather see her win the whole thing.

    My brother John has been kind enough to watch the skating with me these past few days. His favorites so far:

    Yuzuru Hanyu
    Julia Lipnitskaia
    Carolina Kostner

    When NBC cut to a clip of Ashley Wagner emerging from backstage, he said, "She's like Goldberg, the wrestler."

    Kim's rolling eyes. I was scared for real. Who knew sweet Yuna has that side:EVILLE:

    If any of top three wins tomorrow, who would provide the most drama?
    Queen Yuna
    Goddess Carolina
    Russia's princess Adelina

    Re: Worlds - 1. Mao. 2. Julia, oddly enough. 3. Ashley, predictably enough. As much as I wish to see Kostner win the Olympics, I don't yet care whether she wins Worlds again or not. I'll ask myself again in a few days.

    headband power: Ilinykh or Glebova?

    1. I expect so, but you never know with teenage OGM winners, and he clearly suffers as he nears the end of his programmes.

    2. Glebova, though it didn't do her much good yesterday.

    3. Worst SP dress:

    Helgesson
    Kim
    Murakami
    Sotnikova

    Apologies to Vash01 for missing the question in #139.

    The correct answer might well be Helgesson's but I'll go with Murakami's.

    worse muzak in skating:

    Beatles songs
    or
    Queen songs?

    Beatles muzak has claimed far more victims.....Jenny Kirk, Klim/Pon, Dornbush, Abbott, Dai, Korpi, Kwan (strangely, Eleanor Rigby seems to be the only piece that isn't cursed)

    More cursed:
    Slaughter on 10th Ave
    or
    Beatles muzak

    The curse of "Slaughter on 10th Ave" spares no one and I can think of no really great skates to it.

    Seventh place at the Olympics:

    Emily Hughes (What Lil' Jon's exuberance was to Dave Chappelle, Hughes' verve and attack are to me. Weird and banal, but there you are.)
    Rachael Flatt (I still like that Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini free skate, particularly the step sequence.)
    Ashley Wagner (If Flatt's 7th would've been an easy 5th in any other Olympics, Wagner's would have been an easy 5th in Vancouver. Add on that she's past her prime and didn't have the friendliest room to work with and the result becomes more creditable still.)

    Ashley Wagner. She was the most impressive one among US ladies. She kicked all the doubts away for which I'm very proud:)

    Did Mao's LP melt your frozen heart?
    Yes
    Of course
    If it didn't do it to anyone, that person is no human.
    I'm incredibly happy that Mao had her moment at the Olympics that she can be really proud of.

    Adelina
    Yu-Na
    Carolina

    I don't like Adelina's skating. I think that her win was fair.

    same question

    I find her utterly repulsive and refuse to acknowledge that this has happened. Although I enjoy Yu-Na's grouchy tango as much as the next skating grinch, I think it's rather obvious that Carolina is the only answer.

    Is Adelina's costume blue enough to continue the ladies champion blue streak?
    eys
    non
