Well, it was quite exciting to see my first ever live "competitive" skating (even tho it was practice). Sr. Pairs SP tonight. I'm going to be brief, in large part because this laptop keyboard drives me totally nuts - the worst one I've ever tried to type on. So if many typos abound, you know why.
For me, Nam/L stole the show tonight. Talk about presence!! If they can keep building an arsenal technically, look out!
I/B had their group to themselves. I suspect they approached their practice accordingly they practiced a few throw A's at the end, but I think a clean T2A was as good as it got. I don't think that last one was a 3A, but of course I could be wrong - correct me if I am. They looked good though - at ease and comfortable.
O/L were a no show for practice.
I did not stay for the last group and I'm not sure who all was scheduled for that. Can't wait to get a program tomorrow so I feel less "in the dark" as things happen.
I'm tired...and LOL tired of this keyboard. OK - one last funny thing. It reminded me of when Sasha spit water over the board on camera. When Nam and L first came out for the practice session, they warmed up a bit, then went up to the boards by their coach. Nam leaned down, and gingerly picked up a dirty kleenex off the ice and tossed it over. Looks to me like spit and snot, etc. must just be par for the course. FS really IS a SPORT!!!!
Nighty night. I have more notes on other teams, but for now just a few highlights.
