    Stayed up too late trying to catch all the pairs--luckily for me, they re-showed them this A.M., and I caught the last few flights. Now I am avoiding my responsibilities, watching streaming from the one place that has come through for me. To avoid blockages to U.S. in future, I shall not publish who that turned out to be. Believe me, I tried everywhere yesterday lol. Combed the globe. Missed the entire CD. But here it is, my favorite discipline, men's singles, and I cannot believe that I am going to get to see it--well, most of it; I cannot avoid my responsibilities forever. lol I think I am overly excited. Certainly, I am tempted to turn off the phone....;

    OK, I am no good at typing while watching, so my compliments to those who are, and who will graciously provide the PBP. I just missed the second skater lol.

    Sorry, my mistake--missed the second and third skaters lol. I like this Lithuanian skater, though. Soft style, good ankles. I like his feet. Had to re-edit from carelessness--just cannot type and watch too.

    young Saulius Ambrulevicius (LTU)

    black uniform, spanish music

    1st element is steps.. he tries to be in motive with the music
    2a ok
    nice skating
    3s-2t really tight
    camel to upright to change sit not so good-looking
    only a 2t
    another spin
    straight line steps, a bit slow
    sit change sit
    finish off music

    he has some quality in his skating, but he needs heavy work on his elements.

    34.68 and last place..


    10000 sorry, but I want to enjoy the rest without having to do play by play... cu later

    I had to tune in to say Bravo, for my fellow countryman, who usually suck big, but today he did well, landing a clean 3 lutz 3 toe.

    A rare opportunity for me , having Bold channel, to see my fellow romanian skaters (my former country)!!

    Second flight warming up. It's a thrill to see so many countries joining in this sport. Even many of the warmer countries are in it now.

    ETA--I am not going to get anything done today, I can see that lol.

    If people don't like someone, regardless how you try to explain it, they would not change, so it's really pointless.

    I am liking this Georgian skater--what low sitspins! Really, really low. I am a fan of sitspins that really go all the way down.

    (There are so many reasons to like a skater, that I can can like many for one quality or another. For me, it is not about the points. It is about the skating.)

    Beka Shankulashvili - Georgia 42.80 currently in third place

    I will be royally pissed if Oxygen chacks skaters in groups 6, 7, and 8 who skate well, such as Contesti, Lutai, Berntsson, Voronov, Chipeur, Fernandez, Macypura, and Schultheiss. If all we get are groups 9 & 10, I'll be a little bummed. Come on, Oxygen, make the most of those 2 hours of coverage. No fluff, more skaters, please!

    Turkish skater skates crisply--specialty seems to be jumps, but without much outflow. Footwork is very neat, but his sitspin is too high, surprisingly.

    Alper Ucar -Turkey

    Turkish flag in audience, he goes to embrace. I am glad that patrons are allowed to show flags, to encourage their skaters. Used to be a rule against draping banners on the boards, but these days, people are holding their flags and standing to display them. It works!

    He is in red bolero type jacket and black pants, ruffled white shirt-neck effect.

    45.57 into third

    Philippines skater now. I never spell that right lol. shades of blue, diagonally mottled on top, with zaggy stripes.

    Sitspin as high as a mountain :(

    I cannot help it, I *care* about sitspins. He looks tired already, doing footwork

    He is on the heavy side for singles skating. Not much of a jumper.

    But I think it is nice that the Philippines has sent a skater to Worlds.

    I need to give up on capitalizing words lol for speed's sake
