Ubering juniors against my will
The ISU tweeted that the gala is on tonight, but Peacock says it's on tomorrow night. :confused:

Wow, to open the second half of the Gala, Mao Shimada just skated her SP this season with 3A, 3F and 3Lz+3T!
Edited to add: Japan Senior Nationals in December, is going to be the "toughest" competition for Japanese women skaters. If Mao is going for this jump layout, will other 3A jumpers such as Hana follow suit in the SP? It is going to be nail biting!

Checked into the 2nd half and Denis is skating to the worst GFB version of In the Air Tonight. I need the original with the drums in it. Not that garbage.

Not sure of your time zone, but it is tomorrow in a little while.
I mean, it said Sunday night at 11:20 p.m. Eastern, instead of Saturday night at 11:20 p.m. Eastern. It still says that. I wonder if they'll actually put it up when it gets to be 11:20 and they figure out it already took place.


I'm currently arguing with a poor clueless Peacock social media rep on Twitter who insists that they'll be airing the gala live when it takes place 14 1/2 hours from now. :rolleyes:
Here's the link to the ISU YouTube channel if that helps in the argument.



Wrangling the duvet into the cover
... And there's no gala on Peacock. SHOCKER.
Hmmmm, methinks NBC needs to hire someone who can do arithmetic. New math may not work for time conversion. And the tile is gone, so no gala for the US unless we switch countries and watch the ISU replay which IS available.
