Figure Skating Is A Dangerous Sport
Awwwwwwwww Johnny was just wonderful and got a standing ovation.
Caroline Zhang, wow, wow, and wow.
did I just miss it or did they totally skip over Scott Hamilton's first US title in that little montage...
Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
Caroline blew me away. i was never impressed that much with her until today. she's my new favorite. Her flexibity and strengh is amazing. she should have been nationals chmapion. exquiste. the new sasha cohen!
alissa was great. she should use don quoixte as a freeskate next year. she interpreted it so well. Johnny, i wasn't impressed with. it looked to me as if he was just improvising as he went along. imagine is a great song, but really hard to skate to.
Did anybody notice all the rock songs? too much for me. Not the biggest rock fan.
funny mairi didn't even have an exebitio number. she just used her short. I guess she wasn't expecting to skate at the exebitio same with Ryan Bradley.
I am not surprised at all. I watched this exhibiton program before. It is by far my favourite of all ladies' programs this season. It really shows her strength, and she's really feeling the music extremely well plus those insane and extremely innovative spirals and spins.

This is also an exhibiton program full of jump content. 3lutz+2t, 3flip. She's really very gutsy.

That was fun - and Joe was right, Zhang stole the show - wow, wow, wow!!!!!
I just have to say (again, I think) that Spokane rocked - that audience was amazing, I actually got teary eyed listening to the applause.
And it just felt so cool to see the stands full. I hope we see Nationals again there very soon.
What a great exhibition. My favorite numbers? Caroline Zhang is beautiful to watch. Naomi Nari Nam-I'm so glad she is back with her exuberance & big smile, what joy she brings to the ice. Johnny Weir was poetry in motion & Ryan Bradley-I can't watch him without a smile on my face. I enjoyed everyone but these four skaters & their routines were the ones I enjoyed most.
Ryan landed a back flip on one foot on a perfect edge!
is it just me or did it look like it was a tornado entrance into the back flip, or does his back flip just look funny?
I agree that Mirai, Caroline and Alissa were terrific! Those 3 have the BEST spins. Wow, wow, wow! Actually, the two youngsters made me back hurt just watching some of their positions! I also enjoyed Emily very much. She just looks like a Professional Performer out there! Bebe has one of the most beautiful classic laybacks, right up there with Angela N. IMO.

I really liked all those interviews and skates of those skaters of some time ago. I thought this was one of the better exhibitions they have shown. I even was able to edit it.

The exhibition today wasn't horrible but I think they could have used a lot of that talking time to show all the skaters they chacked from the broadcast. They could have shown Davis & White, Navarro & Bommentre, Rena & John, and Evora & Ladwig at least rather than some of that talking and I'm a bit annoyed that they didn't show all the junior champions this year either. They normally do show them in the exhibitions. I guess the broadcast was all right but it could have been SO much better had they not chacked so many other skaters. :banging:
