    Ridiculous Yu Na and Peggy fans voting each other out, and leaving Witt safe. Witt cant win this, so voting for Witt of course. Dorothy blows Witt away in every skating category besides jumps, and even her doubles and double axels were much more powerful and strong. Also unlike Witt, Dorothy went onto a dominant professional career.

    I agree, Yuna should have won IMO, and Katarina should have been eliminated ages ago. So my vote stays to vote out Katarina

    I'm voting out Dorothy because she has one OGM while Kat has too. I'm not even a Kat fan (well, only the professional days) and I considered voting her out before.. was rooting for Yuna to win.. but now that she and Dorothy are the ones left I think she deserves to win between the two.

    So, if there's a tie this time, does that mean that no one wins?

    I know.

    I suspect so. My silly post resulted from my surprise at the last hour increase in votes for Kim; I was so sure that Fleming would finish FORTH in this game.

    Damn, now I wish I had voted for Yu-Na!

    Oh well, I'll just have to continue my anti-Witt streak here.

    ETA: Perhaps it was all a penultimate-hour increase. I dunno.

    I am bummed that Yuna didn't win this, as she should.

    But there is comfort in that this FSU poll seems to have confirmed what NY Times said about Yuna:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/02/sp...istopherclarey

    "[H]er place as an all-time great [is] secure alongside the likes of Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill and Katarina Witt."

    Katarina is the weakest, IMO.
    Dorothy has a much more solid skating, is much more elegant. Of course, Katarina has something really special, but Dorothy is the better skater, IMO.

    Here - I respect Katarina's accomplishments, but I would MUCH rather watch Dorothy skate.

    i voted by how many titles total had first-when i voted,
    for example peggy had 4 3 world 1 oly
    dorothy -1 world 1 oly-2
    katarina 4 world 2 oly==6
    i voted the one with lowest off first.

    i would have peggy and katarina as last two, my preference would have been peggy to stay, win. but since dorothy and katarina -i picked katarina due to more titles not because i like katarina better just more titles.

    but it seems this was skewered anti americans since most americans were voted off in earlier rounds, so when it came to other countries either i didn't vote, went with pack.

    so far none of mine made it to final round. in suvivors, so left it-went with pack.
    since fun poll just voted-but i notice was to vote usa off earlier
