    "the most delicious sport of all"
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    wow at Nancy having more jump content than Sarah. On the other hand, to Sarah's credit, her split falling leaf is still better than a lot of today's ladies...and her toe point on her spirals is first rate.
    According to Charlie Brown, there are three things you can't help but stare at: a babbling brook, a crackling fire and a Zamboni clearing the ice.

    Yes, I was to see Nancy do a 2A.

    yes, another classic Dick-ism. (of course, I happen to agree )

    Debi Thomas sure gave Denise Biellmann a run for her money with that bra + skirt outfit!

    This has been a well put together show, nice group for a Christmas Day show when lots of non-fans might be watching with their families. Good marketing for a post-Olympic year, especially when USFSA is hoping to draw a large audience to RISE in February.

    Tons of skating treats in this show:

    Debi Thomas
    Paul & Nancy skating together
    Richard Dwyer with Tai, Tenley, Jojo and Linda Fratianne
    Richard Dwyer and Brian Boitano duet

    There's still a half hour left, but if it re-airs I highly recommend it - a little light on the skating and a little different than the usual skating show - but rich with history and worth the time.

    I'm sorry for what they "chacked"; yet, I'm grateful for how much they are showing.

    I know that can't have everyone, but where on earth was Michelle Kwan? How can they even consider to do a show like this without her? She epitomizes being the American champion.

    And how about Ben Agosto & Tanith Belbin?

    They pretty well hit most of the past folks and it was wonderful for me to see Paul Wylie & Brian Boitano skate. I so miss their skating. Loved seeing Paul & Nancy's "Miss Saigon" pairs program again. She always looks (and looked) so happy when she skates with him.

    Glad I was not the only one who thought this. It's a pretty big omission on their part IMHO.

    Roz was not at the show, nor were Kitty & Peter. They were advertised but weren't there.

    Loved the live show, enjoyed the broadcast, but VERY upset that several excellent performances were not shown in their entirety in the broadcast - Todd's Mike's, Calla & Rocky (who really brought the house down), etc. I hope that TPTB consider making a DVD of the ENTIRE show. I hate to see anyone get "chacked!"

    It was good to see Debi skate again - I love her body and she looked great. But I wasn't overwhelmed by the skating overall..

    Tanith and Ben and Meryl and Charlie were shown on the big screen during the live show but this all was chacked in the broadcast. In fact everything about ice dance that was said during the show (which wasn't that much anyway) was totally chacked for the broadcast.
