    I am always hoping the skaters from the U.S. will win any competition they are in so they are never boring to me because I am so anxious for them to do well. Other than Oksana B. in her first few years as a pro, Kulik, G&G and now Katia, Bourne and Kraatz, Elvis, Phillipe, Kurt, K&P, K&O, and at times A&P most skaters outside of the U.S bore me to death simply because i don't care for them to win. Most exhibitions bore me no matter who the skaters are unless I really like the music they are skating to.

    i would just like to start off by saying i dont mean any disrespect to any skater because its a very demanding sport and not just any person can do it.
    in that - my snoozefest starts with my vote for meno and sand. others : todd e, p. wylie, m.kwan, e.sandu, elvis s., b.orser and j.robinson, gorsha and rene.

    Sale & Pelletier - too many lifts, too little 'skating'

    I guess I would describes these skaters as more tedious than boring, their shtick just gets old to me

    P/T. They're good technically, but they don't really stand out. They always seem to skate to these very heavy sounding pieces of classical music that do them no justice

    At least right now, Joubert does nothing for me. Too robotic, too stiff. May be he will improve.

    LOL! Why? Because Elvis Stojko could never be as good and interesting as them?

    Actually I wanted to ask the same.
    I didn't put him in my selection, but Stoyko always was kinda "bathroom break" to me. Nothing but jumps.

    Wow. Well, yes I do love Elvis Stojko,that is my preference. And yes I personally find him more interesting than either of my choices. I do no expect you to have the same taste. We all have different tastes and different things that we find tedious. I would never make fun of you for your choices, why did you do so with mine?

    Extremly boring skaters

    Petrova/Tikhonov, Totmanina/Marinin top my list. They just don't have any excitement at all.

    Here are the rest that bore me.

    Kurt Browning
    Maria B, never like her at all
    Irina
    Jennifer Robinson
    Amber Corwin
