    Nope. Everyone did well.

    I LOVED, and I mean LOVED the clown program with Sasha, Kurt, and Todd. So, so cute.

    They probably didn't point out Ina & Zimmerman b/c they're current cast members, not past members =). They're doing the 6 shows Sale & Pelletier are not: Providence, RI, Boston, MA, Rochester, NY, Washington, DC, Portland, ME, Bridgeport, CT

    Yeah, that was a cute program.

    Glad they had no falls this time. :)

    Did you see the mystery woman in the beginning of Evan's Tango? Did you get why she was there? I sure didn't.

    I didn't notice her. Doesn't mean she wasn't there, though -- just that when Evan's doing a program, I get tunnel vision. :swoon:

    I didn't see a "mystery women" during Evan's program either.

    No falls. Some popped jumps though (Joannie popped her first salchow to a single in solidarity with the 4CC Canadian ladies :p, but she landed all her other jumps very well last night) and there were some stepped out of jumps.

    When they pushed the box out in the clown/tramp number - I thought that's so tiny. I knew Sasha was in there (having seen the TV airing), but I couldn't believe she still fit in there!

    Gordeeva has the best stroking of any skater I've ever seen, either. Effortless and powerful, and fast. Like butter. I wish she could teach that to others.

    So how was 2020 Nationals? ;)

    Checked my calendar and I think I'm going to bring my mom to the DC show at the Verizon Center; I don't think she's seen live skating since '81 Words in Hartford :lol:

    Does anyone have any insight on how this year's show is similar / dissimilar from the past couple of years? I've gone the past few years and have enjoyed the both the traditional format and 'COI' vibe the show has last year.

    I'm excited to see Gordeeva back, my eye is always drawn to her when she is on the ice (same with Tanith, for whatever reason).

    If you are at the DC show and hear muffled inappropriate foul-language and snickering, it's probably my fiancé and I :shuffle:
