    I wonder if CBC will show any of it live. They seem just a tad preoccupied with hockey these days, [I wonder why; it's not like anybody in our country likes hockey ] so they may not cut away from that for dance. We'll see! Maybe!

    NBC will show the Americans and the last two groups, I guess.

    The non-N.Amercians with no Afro background in their culture will be dancing to their native folk dances and give the Latin Dances an upbeat performance with tricks one would never dream of doing in native Cuban dances. Not their fault, it was too much Carmen Miranda in the movies to ape.

    Remember, the beat is down (like a Tango) not up (like a waltz)

    The Frau is in, listening to Eurosport!

    Oooo...sounds like the Bulgarians had a spill or a trip-up on a spin.

    "Lots of nerves out here," say Chris & Simon of Eurosport.

    Standings before the final group of five couples: Bulgarians into 3rd...lots of 'boos' from audience!

    Oh, Bulgarians! :( Into 3rd with 93.50 points. I expected a little more.

    I'm surprised D/V are so far back. :(

    The crowd didn't agree with the scores for Denkova/Staviski?

    Me too. I hope that they aren't being 'set up' so that their great freeskate (as in Europeans) not matter a whit.

    Probably upset that the component scores are so low. Technically, there's no argument. They had a sloppy problem with a spin.

    Yeah, it seems like that will be the case. And it upsets me because their FD is so so lovely. I was WOWed by them in Europeans.

    Good luck to the Canadians and B/A in the final group! I'll be back a little later.
