    Agree. If I had to describe Peggy's skating in one word, it would be "serene."

    Thanks so much, skatesindreams! I loved the Peggy documentary.

    I am one of the people who always loved Peggy's commentating... I know some didn't feel the same, but in my opinion, there's no pleasing everyone. Especially our lot!

    Tara's still not jumping. Come on. Even Liz Manley could pull out some jumps! Liz was amazing btw. The fact she could get everybody in the crowd going like that, at her age, was awesome.

    Maybe Tara doesn't want to do something to reinjure her hip. Tho' an earlier poster said she saw her jump in California.

    If I had a bad hip, I wouldn't jump.

    Wouldn't a bad hip also hurt Tara on non-jumping moves? Just the traveling stars into a camel alone put a lot of pressures on her hips. Tara also doesn't just glide around on the ice; She incorporates footwork and dance moves when she performs. I think she can at least throw a 2t or 2s if she wants to.

    I cut Tara slack because of her injury, plus she wasn't doing a full program. As I understand it, she was just doing a couple of moves on the ice.
