    I also wish Tara was in this. How sad. :( Otherwise, Ice Wars is going to be great. :D

    Well I bet they couldn't ask Yuka...they didn't want Nicole's female counterpart to be that ahead of her in skating skills so they brought in Oksana who maybe closer to Nicole's level.

    Gosh, I thought this sounded like a pretty good lineup and I am a bit surprised to see a lot of negativity here. Oh well, to each his/her own. :D Anyway, they normally show both programs at Ice Wars on CBS around Thanksgiving (there's a technical and an artistic program they all skate at this one) and I can't remember if they chacked anyone last year or not. With this crew, I think they will end up showing everyone. It should be a good competition. The only two skaters who tend to do more showy and not as much technical stuff are Oksana and Nicole. I think the others still have that technical skill and they use it whenever they can for this competition in addition to the presentation. JMO of course though. I look foward to seeing it (and I have a friend who is going too so I will have to get the good gossip from her, LOL). I too hope it doesn't turn into a SLC rehash though. Geesh, its been over a year and a half, the skaters have let it go, I think its time for the press to also! LOL

    I don't like it... don't like it at all! *pouts*

    Actually, in Ice Wars 2002 it was Boitano/Kulik and Hamilton/Browning "clash" in the artistic programme.

    I think that they did not show Bobek´s technical programme in 2002 broadcast. Actually, the term "chack" may not apply in this connection, as it was not technically a great performance, I believe, LOL.

    I also hope that they will show all programmes from 2003 competiton!

    How about Yuka vs Nancy or Tonya K.

    At COI, Nicole doesn't do much more than doubles. Maybe she will get in fighting shape for this competition.

    Did anyone notice, the World team has All Olympic Gold skaters?

    Yes, I noticed that they all are Olympic champions. Will be really interesting to see how Oksana fares in the competition. I have great hopes for her.

    It is a bit strange that they have only one lady in each team. And also it looks a bit odd in what order they have both teams in that ad (not same for both teams).

    All Oly champs, and all with a controversial win over a North American to boot! (Viktor/Paul, Oksana/Nancy, Ilia/Elvis, B&S/S&P) (Well, maybe not Ilia/Elvis)

    What would really be a coup, is if they could substitute Ilia with Urmanov and then get Nancy, Paul and Elvis to replace Nicole, Brian and Kurt.

    Did they ever have Nancy, Paul, Kristi, Brian vs. Oksana, Viktor, Midori and Brian?

    Berthe - The pairings you listed look great. I might even get interested in this competition. It shouldn't be all golf clubs and boas.
