preview of pbp: Tar/Mor: much "I hate this music" "OMG, this music", "panty dropping". "I hate her dress" They'll shake their butts and nail the elements
Stol/Klim: "Carmen! I hate Carmen" (many variations on the theme). Stolbova will be Carmen and she and/or Fedor will make mistakes and come in 2nd. (I hope)
Castelli/Tran: will screw up. I no longer care
Marchai/Hoterek: will skate perky. They don't know how to do anything else. I love Vale, but expected more by now

Everybody else: Too perky! Not perky enough! :yawn:

Thanks - you should contact the organizers tell them not to bother with the competition. :D
Oh, no. I love Stol/Klim and Tar/Mor and watch even if I know the outcome. :lol: And, like Charlie Brown and the football, I always think Stol/Klim will nail it this time. Until they don't.

So, butchered the lift at nebelhorn, butchered the lift in the warm-up and butchered it halfway in the competition :scream:

JPN: Wow is this the most overpowering version of Let it Be used in a skating program? Or possibly the most vocally overpowering version of this song ever. Anyway... Her dress is pretty!

I'm happier with the performance of the fans than the skaters. These guys looked better last year. Are they hiding an injury?

Probably been addressed plenty, but is Boudreau-Audet able to go to the Olympics at this point for the team event?

They ended super wobbly and were just off the entire performance. Agree that they had some momentum the last few years but it's gone away. Maybe they are disappointed they didn't qualify an individual event spot for the Olympics?

When did the ISU start requiring skaters either use covers, music from critically reviled movies, or both?

The Japanese pair wins the "both" award.

I'm going to say it again: Where is my ****ing Showgirls program?!?!??!
