    Qualification to Team Competition at the Beijing Olympics

    You know, looking at the scores so far, I take back my statement that Min/Eaton aren't likely to qualify. Their 168 & change tonight puts them in 4th of the teams that have competed so far this season. Scores rose a LOT from LPIDI - 11 point increase for Min/Eaton, 13 point increase for...

    Qualification to Team Competition at the Beijing Olympics

    Hungary still has time to sub in Schermann for Lang though - and if you look at the top scores over 150 so far this fall, she'd be #7 (only 2 points behind Austria's Schaller who is trying for a 2nd spot) and that's only if Cyprus subs in Kitromilis for Zingas. Of course, Serna and Zingas are...

    Qualification to Team Competition at the Beijing Olympics

    Based on what we've seen the past few weekends, I don't think South Korea really has a chance at qualifying in a 3rd discipline - Min/Eaton just got beat by the #7 US dance team tonight. Georgia is looking good for one of the pairs spots. Right now, I'm thinking - top 6, Georgia, Germany...

    2021-22 Programs and Choreographers

    Yes and no? I think that having no audience in the arena is going to make it hard for the audience at home to get excited and revved up. Sure, the skaters dealt with that at Worlds this year but most of them have said they prefer the audience, and feed off the audience's energy. Sasha's...

    Russian women news & updates, 2021-22 season

    I think Valieva has to go out and win some competitions first before we can anoint her as "the next great one". Shcherbakova is the only one of those ladies who has a proven track record of winning MAJOR senior competitions when the pressure is on.

    Qualification to Team Competition at the Beijing Olympics

    Not much change from 2 weeks ago... Australia got on the board with points from their JGP pairs entry this week and Belarus leapfrogged into 14th with JGP points from their man and woman in Krasnoyarsk. The other big news is that Serna replaced Mazzara as France's entry for the Nebelhorn...

    2021/2022 Canadian Pairs: News and Updates

    You could be correct but, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they pull out of this weekend's comp because of an injury? I'm no fan of any of the current Canadian teams but that scoring at ACI this weekend really has me just utterly pissed off and I'd love to see W/M fend off J/R. I'm just...

    2021/2022 Canadian Pairs: News and Updates

    You think? They're going up against exactly who else for the 2nd spot? Walsh/Michaud and Stellato-Dudek/Deschamps. Deanna doesn't have Canadian citizenship and isn't going to get it before February so, they're fighting for that 2nd spot against Walsh/Michaud who were 12th at Worlds. Those...

    2021-22 Programs and Choreographers

    Well, that's an awfully big assumption there, that there will BE an audience in the arena for the Olympics...

    U.S. Ice Dance 2021-22 season news & updates

    Let's just take a moment, as US dance fans, to revel in the still so very deep field we have, shall we? Here we are talking about Green/Parsons rising hot on the heels of Hawayek/Baker, and about CarPon seeming to stagnating still in spite of the move to I.AM2.0 and we have had all but one of...

    Sept. 16-19, 2021 - competition viewing schedule

    I didn't have any issues watching the RD on replay on the 'Cock last night. I was streaming from my phone to my TV.

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    At this rate, if StepBuk or SinKats can't make it through the season, I totally see both DavSmo and MorBaz on the Olympic team.

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    Finally got a chance to really watch Gilles/Poirier and HubDon again, plus first time views Smart/Diaz, L/L, Green/Parsons, Davis/Smolkin and Min/Eaton (too much work today kept me from being able to pay close attention). I still think H/D have a really good RD this season and by the Olympics...

    Japanese figure skating 2021-22 season news & updates

    Not really. My current projections have them earning 6 points in the pairs SP for the team event - they won't beat any team Russia or China puts on the ice in the TE, and their SP from ACI is lower than K/F's SP from the John Nicks Challenge last weekend. We haven't seen M-T/M yet but nothing...
