No problem, it was a pleasure.

I also don't trust Kostners nerves nor Shizuka's ability to rotate the combos (and the lip). So she would have had a good podium shot. Gold would have required a Salt Lake- esque turn of events.
It'll be interesting to see what happens now. If they truly deduct or downgrade for edges and pauses between combos/series (think Kimmie at Nats SP) we could see skaters giving up entire jump passes as opposed to simply minor deductions. If they do to the flutzer/lippers what they did to Kirk at Lalique in 01 (throw the 2nd sp pass out because its the same as the first) a number of women could be in trouble.)
I actually wouldn't mind breaking the monotony of the lutz combo, solo flip SPs. I used to love Butraskaya and Mok's SPs with those loops because they truly sprung out of moves or footwork. Most others seem to be doing fw and going onto a back edge for what seemed like 10 seconds before the jump.
there's so much delusion going on but that's nothing new

Most everyone else thinks Slutskaya is a shoo-in. I hope so.

Then I would clearly be the Oly champion. HELLO Christine!! What about me??II
But I still have a shot at fame as part of the deLUGEnal Divas Team. Why isn't Christine covering our awesome Luge team anyway?????
(ok, i know i'm being silly now. )
