    Pairs SP

    Sokolova/Sokolov for Israel - that was not impressive. Clean triple twist to start, but downhill after that with mistakes on the SBS jumps and a fall on the pair spin. Eurosport broadcasters suggest he needs to work on basic skating skills. I agree. They have apparently been skating together for 5 years. I never would have guessed it. A shade over 31.

    During the warmup they showed someone in the stands who looked a lot like Maxim Marinin, with a very cute baby. Was it Marinin with his very cute baby?

    I'm really impressed by the Junior Russian teams, despite the mistakes. They have tons of potential, particularly I/M. They had more fluidity and prescence in their first 2 second than the rest of the pairs combined.

    Lubov ILIUSHECHKINA / Nodari MAISURADZE had a really strange fall. After landing *beautiful* sbs 3T, his skate caught on the ice, he fell and then she fell on top of him. He looked devastated on the end of the program... :(

    It's a shame because up until then, it was perfect and absolutely gorgeous. That freak fall really unsettled them. They are the most unique and promising team that I've seen in ages (probably since Savchenko/Szolkowy made their debut). SKATE GODS, LEAVE THEM ALONE!

    Natalia Pavlova is doing an amazing job with her junior pairs teams!

    That was indeed Maxim Marinin with his son.

    And during warm-up they showed Plushenko.

    I don't know about the Zaretskis, but S/S have only themselves to blame. There were too many mistakes and the program did not work at all. In their defense, they were last minute replacements for the Americans and probably had to scramble to get ready. Maybe they'll do better in the LP.

    Noo V/M!
    58.34? With two falls? I mean the quality of everything else they did was just top notch, but that still seems a bit high.
