Absolutely, they really don't mean anything so give them some feels. Fake feels are better than no feels.Protocols: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2020/29710/SEGM003.html
None of these scores count for ISU PB/SB or TES minimums so inflate away, judges!
Bradie's hair is beautiful, I agree, but matronly hair with a catsuit is a big no... I think she can keep the blonde, but maybe try a more relaxed style. She could always go Diamond Dave or vintage Dee Snider.Bradie's hair is beautiful and normally I'm all about the blonde, but I'd REALLY like to see her with something short and dark.
But is it? On just the first view, I thought Mariah's flip and toe were both < and probably would've scored substantially lower with an international technical panel. Also, the US ladies aren't exactly filling up their programs with nonsensical transitions, let alone any at all
You can't have Carol Lane's job if that's what you're after....
And we'll have fun bitching about it when it happens!
I'll happily admit if I'm wrong, but based on what we've seen at the Russian Cup events, I don't think I'll be. An all-Russian tech panel is not going to call > or e on any Tutberidze skater. And the judges will throw out insane GOE that will make this look like amateur hour.

I was just about to suggest that a Florence Henderson aka Carol Brady hairdo would be the topper, but then you posted this.
The crud spreads through aerosols and hangs in the air, especially when the surrounding temperature is cool. Having skaters distanced and wearing masks in an area where each skater will sit one after another gasping for breath is the OPPOSITE of crud theater. It's actually good practice based in science and I am very happy to see they are doing this. The constant wiping down of surfaces nobody touches is crud theater.Crud theatre. The ISU is message over substance more often than not.
Sorry! I was trying to reply to the quote in your post that said wearing masks in the kiss and cry made no sense/was theater.@bladesofgorey What I referred to as crud theatre is avoiding 2 minutes of coach contact in the KnC when the skaters have 20+ hours a week of contact with that person. Their coach is in their circle and should be allowed in the KnC. It’s like saying you shouldn’t sit with your roommate when you eat out, despite sharing a home.
