    Bumping up this thread as a reminder for the NBC broadcast this afternoon (4-6 pm Eastern time - check your local listings).

    (NBC's TEB broadcast is scheduled for 2 hours beforehand -- link to the discussion thread in Kiss and Cry: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=81341 )

    I think it's great that Weiss can still knock off all the triples at this stage in his life.. good for him - how old is he now??

    I positively love Lang and Tchernychev! Isn't that the dress she wore at 2003 Worlds? Lovely!

    I love that dark blue is so popular for dresses lately -- it's my favorite color. :) And Yuka looks gorgeous in it.

    The rink is really small. Tuktamysheva would feel right at home. :)

    Gotta be pushing 40? Mid-30s? Todd Eldredge, too, a couple years back on SOI was still reeling off all the triples (including some 3As prior to an injury) at close to 40. Darned impressive. Of course if I myself wasn't in my 40s I wouldn't be as impressed, but now that I'm there: DAMN!!!:kickass:

    Sure seems to fit Rachel nicely in this setting, even the navy velvet looks better than her competitive dresses

    I quite enjoy shows like this with good musical talent along with the more seasoned skaters as they often have a nice quality to their skating beyond jumping beans.. Katia is so smooth on the ice, I miss those pro competitions - quite enjoyed those..

    Kimmie is all grown up. She's matured into a very pretty girl. Who can jump better than Sarah.

    Liking Katia's sass in the pink 2 axels and charisma. She still is a great performer.

    The thing I love about watching Katia now is when she has the exact same expressions of joy, etc. on her face that I've seen of videos of her skating as a teen. (G/G's heydey happened when I was quite young and before I became a skating fan.)

    But Gladys Knight for two hours would be amazing.. I saw her live a couple of years ago and to this day the best concert I have ever been too..

    He puts many much younger skaters to shame, even on small ice.

    And he still does the best spread eagles on the world.:kickass:

    Oh darn it, they chacked Yuka's second number. I was okay with them chacking Rachael though!!

    What a great show, nice to see such great skaters (katia, brian, yuka, naomi and peter, michael, and steven) and great music. Just wish the rink was bigger. Great show!! I only got annoyed once when they went to the musicians, when Katia was doing a move. I feel like when I watch Disson shows I'm always yelling at my TV!!! :)

    I don't know why I bother to DVR these horrors. I can't stand the back and forth. I don't want to see some doe-eyed guy sing or a lady play the flute.

    I watched Katia x 2, Kimmie x 2 and Doug Razzano's fifty or more revolution spin. That's about it. Come back Kimmie, I love your skating!

    Boitano is fast and can do triples and he is amazing-no understatement!

    Gordeeva is also great. The spins esp.
