    ouch, poor Galit. That's a major bummer. As Ptichka stated, the compulsories are not their strongest but they should be placed in the top 7-8. The fall certainly explains low score and placement. I still expect them to finish ahead of the Kerrs, Wing and Lowe, 2nd Italian pair and Dominina and Shabalin.

    As far as Zaretsky team, they just came out of the juniors this season so I think the placement is fair (based on experience). The Hungarians who are former junior champs from a couple of seasons ago are not that far ahaed.

    I hope the Canadian's could remain in medal reach because they have the most memorable free program out there!

    Not happy with the Italians though

    Don't forget Yogi Berra's axiom - it ain't over 'til it's over.

    I'm just going to have to see this to believe it. The Italian team must be different skaters now!

    I can't believe the Italians are in first place. Granted, their cd's were actually the strongest part of the competition for them in SLC, but I can't believe them being placed above all of those teams, especially N&K. I bet N&K are seething. I'm hoping FP&M actually skated well, and that this isn't simply home country bias. I can't post the list of expletitives I hurled at my tv when I saw the scores.

    The scortes are close, and the cd is often B&A's lowest scoring section. D&L have placed ahead of them in cds at a few events where B&A eventually took them over. I am happy for D&L though. I really want them to medal.

    I just read an article from Yahoo's Olympic news section. Here is what Margaglio said about their performance.

    "We are in front, and the others must do better," Margaglio said.

    I think they win the gold for confidence.

    I agree...the Italians...um...are not good dancers. Is it just me or does it look like she drags him around all the time?!

    For those of you who haven't been able to watch the CD's yet, I can assure you that the Italian couple definitely did not earn their no. 1 spot fair and square! The result is laughable and Maurizio looked like a heavy bag of cement being dragged about by Barbara! Unbelievable!

    Some of you wonder if they have improved from what they used to be - far from it actually, they are WAY below what they used to be and still they're in 1st place...........while there were several very good skates from the other couples, perhaps especially from the Bulgarian couple! The Russian couple was on good form, and the Canadian couple surprisingly good! My favorites D & V didn't have Lady Luck on their side with that draw and the French couple lucked out as well, in spite of a very good waltz.

    The mere thought that F-P & M might actually win is nauseating..........yes, I know it's in Turin, Italy, but for God's sake, let the best couple win!!

    Even if I was being very open minded and flexable in my thinking, the silver pick still makes me laugh!!!
