    Hopefully Maria & Alexei aren't too depressed when reading this, at least they're in VIP-company, after all nobody but the "incomparable" miss kwan is right behind them. (She just gets more endorsements!). :D

    Weiss, Goebel, Yagudin, Kwan.

    The last two have had monotonous programs the past few years. Same old, same old, same old, same old, same old........ ahhhh!

    Weiss just doesn't have it anymore, if he EVER had it to begin with. As for Tim, if he ever wins an international competition I'll go out looking for the Four Horsemen saying Come and take me! LOL

    I know I'm gonna get some flack for this, but Alexander Abt. I recognize his talent, but he puts me to sleep.

    I'd have to go with T/M and P/T. Sometimes, I wish I could light a stick of dynamite under them. They look like they're sleep skating.

    Some not on the list I find "boring" (as opposed to not liking their skating - there are lots of skaters I don't care for, but not because they're boring):

    Chenjiang Li
    Min Zhang - until I saw him live
    Stanilav Timchenko (haven't seen him this year though)
    Angela Nikodinov PRIOR TO 2000-01 SEASON
    Jennifer Robinson !!!
    Josee Chouinard
    Chen Lu in her professional career
    Caryn Kadavy
    Paul Wylie in his professional career

    That's an interesting list, Guin. I think I like everyone on it, except that I am not very familar with Timchenko.

    I voted for Meno/Sand, but that´s not really a vote against the pair itself. Last year I went to two shows of Katarina Witt in Germany. I wanted to see Yags and Bereshnaya/Sikharulidse in person so badly, but it came out to be no Russian there at all, but Meno/Sand once again. And again and again...
    It´s impossible for me to vote for Weiss in this poll. Sometimes I can´t stand this man or at least pity him, but really boring means, that your up for the toilet or the fridge if he´s skating. And it´s not like this at all. :D

    Add Sarah Hughes. With the expcetion of her olympic performances, she's almost painful to watch.

    I think it's crazy that Sasha's name has come up. Sasha's a lot of things, inconsistent...can be technically bad...has some strange moves...but the girl has attitude. Even if you don't like her, she isn't a boring skater...(I know I should say "I think..." but my 8th grade english teacher told me that you're taken less seriously that way )

    Germanice:

    Elivis - boring? Never! The excitement he used to create was through his great jumping abilities and his amazing ability to "switch gears" during a performance and throw in an extra jump not expected at the end. Both he and Kurt have this ability. I don't call that boring.

    Ladskater, I've never called Kurt boring. Just the opposite!
