    Booooo, it appears Menshov has been chacked.

    Johnny says Fernsndez isn't skating to the music. I'll have to take his word for it - I can't hear the music at all.

    These men really lack polish compared to the ladies. They have big jumps but they are just all over the place. I don't see any of them challenging Chan.

    I don't think nbc left time for pairs and dance. That sucks big time. And it's discourteous to all those competitors.
    Have a nice day!

    Tara and Johnny, unlike the older commentators really feel the skaters' pain and try so hard to find something good in each performance. The men had a rough competition.

    I envy Menshov's spring on his jumps, it's hard to believe he is 30. Why didn't the Russian Fed invest more in him?

    I must say, that wae inadvertently hilarious how what the voice-over was saying didn't match the images being shown.

    But hey! All in all thanks nbc!!! It's obvious I haven't missed a dayum thang by not having
    A tv.;-)

    Luv you fsu! Mwahhhh! B-)

    Both Tara and Jonny support Plushenko for Sochi. Weir said legacy and Lipinski said they can trust him at the Olympics. Interesting thoughts!

    The only skating Plushenko should be doing at the Olympics is the opening ceremonies. He won't be satisfied until he is carried out on a stretcher. Skating well is the least of his worries.

    He's not going. It's motivation to the other guys to work harder. And I think he'll be in the opening ceremonies too, along with every Russian skating judge who's ever been banned for a year for cheating. Big crowd.



    Well, two hours is better than no coverage. Good to see some of the Euro competitors who prob won't be at World or Olympics.

    Julia was fine. She's had cleaner long programs. I don't understand the luv for Carolina. She couldn't seem to center a spin. She fell on a jump. She skated slowly. Tara Lipinski kept calling Carolina an artist. I don't see it.

    Tara and Johnny are just annoying. They do not inform enough about what elements have been accomplished. It isn't always clear if a jump is a triple or quad, cleanly or double foot landed, or the level of spins and footwork. And they don't inform.

    I'm so freaking glad they mentioned that TARA was 15 when she won her OGM. And I'm grateful I was watching the show so that I could HEAR HER GIGGLE like Betty Rubble at the mention of her being 15 once. I'm so glad. CAUSE IT JUST NNNNNEEEEEVVVVEEEERRRR happens....every time she appears anywhere on earth. every time. every single time.

    Not impressed with the men's event. Javier earned enough points to win. And it isn't new that someone can rise from 9th or 11th and win a medal. They could have added the guy's full routine and ditched almost any other one. It's not like this was live. At least they had highlights.

    I don't mind Johnny but Tara is just useless IMHO And no we don't care that she won at 15. Let's discuss what she has done since then?? Coast on that medal and giggle? Hmm....

    Based solely on what I saw today, Olympic coverage in USA is going to be all about the USA ladiezz (who are not going to medal I don't think so), Plushenko-his presence or lack of, davis/white (rightfully so), and grudgingly, men. Unless we have some pairs in contention? Oh and the freaking $eam event.

    So I say, GO JASON BROWN. Skate yr heart out and show nbc what they *should* be focusing on-YOU!!
    Have a nice day!

    I don't want Jason to get TOO much attention. I want Jason to be allowed to be Jason and not be pushed into being the "savior" of the USFSA!

    I was pleasantly surprised this was actually on. I remember one year it was scheduled to be on, and then they showed like 20 min. before cutting to another sport. I think it was back in 2004, and they only showed Julia Sebestyen. If not 2004, whatever year she won.

    ETA: Actually, that was ABC, not NBC. Sorry.
