    I am 57 years old and as far as TPTB on television and radio go, not only do I no longer exist, but no one over 25 does, either. This show had some of the most boring skating music I have ever witnessed. Oh wait, Disson is having Barry Manilow on for the 417th time on an upcoming show. I guess that is supposed to satisfy dinosaurs like myself. Maybe I will start muting the skating and putting Pink Floyd on while watching. At least Nationals should have some musical interpretation. These days to see artistry, you have to watch competitions!

    I watched it only out of loyalty to some of the Stars who I'm a fan of. It was a cheesefest all the way but these days there's not much out there for top skaters pro-wise and even less for gymnasts.
