    Christine Brennan-all women present and clean Slutskaya 4th!

    I saw Brennan(Christine) on TV last night and she said the gold would have been Asada's to lose had she been here but she was is not, and it was Kwan's to lose but now is out, and now it is wide open for Cohen and is totally up to her. So according to Christine Brennan it is clear that had Asada, Cohen, Kwan, and Slutskaya all been here and all skated cleanly Irina would have been the odd women out and taken only 4th place. Ummm ok, that woman needs a new career, she will probably have another lame skating book out soon though.

    Kostner is not an American nor a 15-year old phenom, her traditional favorites over the years. That woman has zero credability on the sport, her skating knowledge is about 5% what almost everybody on goldenskate possesses including both of us.
    I bet she has to look at a triple lutz or a triple loop three times over to know ensure what it is. People like her, she stays a big part of the sport, and people follow her because she is controversial and entertaining, and I guess some naive people even think she is knowledgable.

    Christine is living in La La Land. She hasn't got a clue about figure skating. Thank the that she doesn't have a say in the way the results will turn out. I think that this reporting on figure skating is gone to her head.

    If everyone skates completely clean perfect programs I think Shizuka would win and then Sasha or Irina...........

    but that's in a perfect world. And we all know we don't live in one...

    in other words, one of these skaters is BOUND to make SOME mistake here or there. Heck, maybe all of them. For all we know it could be a "splatfest"!

    I think we all realize Christine Brennan is an idiot anyway.

    iNTERESTING

    Its being reported that the judges are dinging the skaters for FLUTZINGGGGGGGG I cant wait to see this if the women are scored the same. We may be in for a surprise after all.

    Well once they ding for flutzing and lipping (and Irina's flat edge take off), all teh women will be back to where they were. It's not going to make that much of a difference. Though this bodes well for Baby Hughes and Meissner as both of these ladies have good technique on both jumps.

    Sorry but the women hurt by that would be Sasha, not Irina.

    True that. And not just her, either.

    This would theoretically give Irina an even bigger advantage in the ladies event. Yawn.

    Does anyone recall the short stint on ABC where Christine Brennan did the post skate interviews? Each skater she talk to looked at her "sideways"

    It's as if they all KNEW she had a machete` somewhere nearby and they needed to spot a path of escape

    ROTFL!

    I wish I had seen Brennan on TV last night sharing her "expert opinion" - I could have used a good laugh!

    slutskayafan21, thanks for sharing that!

    If Asada were in Torino, I would pick her to win because she's 15 and less likely than Slute or Sasha to come down with a case of Olympic Freakout Syndrome. But Kwan? Between the injury and last year's 4th place finish at Worlds, I think she would have been lucky to squeak into the top 6.
