    Does anyone have a direct link to the stream? I cannot seem to find it anywhere on the site they provided.

    Oh, now on the website:
    DUE TO CONNECTIVITY ISSUES AT THE RINK WE ARE CURRENTLY UNABLE TO LIVESTREAM THIS EVENT. We are continuing to work on the problem and will get it up if it is at all possible. Our apologies!

    Is it supposed to be free? I noticed on the previous link that they are charging $20.

    It is free, the $20 is if you want to purchase a DVD of an event.

    Me too! I always enjoy this competition. It might have something to do with the fact that SCoB is using their new rink in Brighton for the first time for this event..

    Baga/Toth skated well, with a nice throw 3sal but I think his toe only went around twice before he opened up. 46.09 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MenFS...ature=youtu.be

    Donlan/Speroff didn't have the best warm-up, but the program suits their style perfectly and even with some of the jump issues (throw 3 loop and her SBS 2axel), it built very nicely at the end. Looking forward to seeing it develop throughout the season. Video should be uploaded eventually under the following link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXYLo...ature=youtu.be

    Donlan & Speroff's LP is gorgeous. If only she was a better jumper. Their throws used to be so secure, but she's even splatting on those now. I know it's awhile until the season even starts yet, but I'm concerned about those throws.

    Speroff is such an elegant and cavalier partner, the program is beautiful, I truly hope the jumps can be corrected before the competitive season begins.

    I love the theme, but I wish the lifts weren't all at the end. They were all gorgeous, though. Their extension is amazing. Usually the guy is not as flexible, but he can keep up.

    I wish pairs didn't have to jump....

    And I realize costumes aren't done this early, but even a practice dress would have been nice. I remember when skaters used to dress up even for regular practice. Lately when I skate, I look around and think, am I at yoga?!

    There are some gorgeous moments in Donlan/Speroff's LP. I especially love that they've put that stunning lift that goes all the way around the rink as the final element. Sadly, the jumps are the same as ever though and now she can't even hit the throws w/ any consistency. It's just heartbreaking, as they have unequaled style and flair. Still, this LP is so similar in every way to the Sleeping Beauty LP from the last two years. It definitely works for them, but a small amount of artistic growth would have been nice to see.

    Baga/Toth's SP is just all wrong for them. The choreography and silly music doesn't work, especially for him. They should ditch it and get something else; there is still time.

    Donlan/Speroff's program was nice, but it seems like a bit of a rehash of their Sleeping Beauty program that they used two seasons in a row. I like them, though, so I'm hoping the program grows on me a bit more.

    My thoughts exactly. I love the Pad de Deux, and it suits them nicely, but they could definitely have worn their competition outfits from the last 2 seasons, since stylistically, this is pretty much exactly the same thing.

    ITA. Landing jumps seems to be a major issue and they aren't going to go anywhere unless that gets fixed. In fact, I see them sliding down the US ranks if it isn't fixed.

    Baga/Toth's SP is just all wrong for them. The choreography and silly music doesn't work, especially for him. They should ditch it and get something else; there is still time.
    Not sure how I feel about this. At least, they have improved since their first outing
