    Petrova/Tikhonov. Plain skating-not very exciting. I like them as people but their skating seems boring to me. :o

    Wow....um, okay, so I voted for Goebel....but I would also agree with Kerrigan....and 99% of ice dancers.....and Sasha Abt...AND Sasha Cohen (okay, well, maybe not boring, I just don't LIKE her!)....Ummm, Dorothy Hamill!!! (There IS a time to retire, and nice lines don't cut it anymore). Okay, so I'm opinionated to my likes, and will probably get some flak, but oh well! It is a subjective sport!

    I hate to call any skater "boring" but I have to admit that Petrova & Tikhonov just don't get it done for me. The shame is I actually started to see some slight improvement a couple of years ago - they not only backslid IMO but also became quite sloppy as well...
    They need different music, choreography, different *attitude* as far as their skating is concerned, methinks.

    I have to agree with Petrova and Tikhonov. Zero personality (on the ice- I'm sure that they are very nice people in person!) I would have tied them with Totmianina and Malinin before this year, and while I haven't exactly warmed to the latter (I do wish Tatiana would smile occasionally!), I REALLY enjoyed T/M's Greig short last year, so I have to rate them more interesting that P/T.

    1. Elvis Stojko
    2. Bourne/Kraatz
    3. Dubreuil/Lauzon
    4. Sasha Cohen
    5. Fumie Suguri
    6. Jennifer Robinson
    7. Alexei Yagudin (I know most people seem to love him, but he just bores me)

    Ok, I have nothing against the Canadians. If it seems like I do, its just the listed skaters that don't interest me.

    Hmmm.... somehow it seems to me that either Petrova is the problem or the combination of those two persons. When I saw Tikhonov skating with a former partner (Inna Volianskaia) I didn't have the impression he would be boring. Though I must admit they appeared in a show, don't know how their competitive programs were if they ever competed together....

    I'm only really a follower of the ladies event, so that's all I comment on. In no particular order:

    Irina Slutskaya
    Michelle Kwan (at times)
    Fumie Suguri
    Nancy Kerrigan
    Lu Chen

    All the big names I can think of at this point. Normally I'd put Sarah Hughes in that list, but I actually enjoyed her more recent programs.

    I've still gotta go with Sasha being the one skater that can put me to sleep or worse-- channel surf until she's through skating. I was hoping the Campbell's comp would show me a new and improved Sasha--unfortunately it was the same old-same old--(flutzes, over/under rotated jumps, wonky landings, fake musicality) except this time she had on a more hideous costume than the 2002/2003 season.

    Maria & Alexei--I hope someone likes their skating. I feel sorry for them. I'm sure that they are very nice people.

    Todd
    Jenni & Todd
    I think it's the name. I've never met anyone named Todd who wasn't boring.
