    I have a feelings that Miki will be on the podium..

    It will be interesting to see if the scoring is as generous as it was in the SP.

    Don't count out Kostner...considering she scored as high as she did with two botched jumps and no 3-3, she could move up even with a shaky skate.

    Mao has been rock solid with 3A in practices. Not including 3z in the long is a plus. This will be like GPF'07, except we have Joannie here. Miki will have to ditch 3-3 and focus on rotating 2a-3t if she wants to medal. That way, she still has 7 triples and a 2a planned, which can still compete with Joannie's layout. I believe Miki will place at least 4th.
    I'm still confused whopping five points separate Carolina with two mistakes and clean Fumie. Seems like weak spins will cost Fumie here just like it did in Turin.

    I just love how because Yu-Na's the best skater in the world, an entire nation thinks they're technical experts just because they have video editing softwrare.

    Kostner has very high levels on the spins, spirals and footwork, and that's the reason her TES is good even when she makes jump mistakes. Her presentation in the SP was also excellent.

    Having said that, I don't think she'll medal tonight.

    My biggest hope for this evening is that this particular board will be as pleasant and fun as the Free Dance board was last night. I had a ball. Almost everyone saved their "warmer" comments till the skating was over.

    I hope everyone loves watching all the skating. Isn't skating wonderful?

    It is! Last night was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed my first time posting on this forum. Here's to a repeat performance tonight, with a lot of (good!) memorable moments in it.

    So true. And to think a Korean reporter actually showed Manon Perron videos on how Joannie isn't jumping with the right technique. Um, wut?

    I know Miki said she isn't going for the quad and I think it's because she's probably sore from practicing it. I hope she does as a way of laying down the chips and declaring that she's not backing off, despite how she gets hit by the judges. BTW, I know from the practice reports that Miki added her own moves to her program. Was it to the FS? If so, I'm excited. I'm not a Miki fan but I love to see what skaters do for their own programs.

    Yeah... I alternate between feelings that Mao's going to skate kick butt and win the long program at least.

    And then feelings of Mao's going to have some real issues ...

    I don't know about Miki it's all about rotations with her. I will say this it's pretty clear that Mao/Yu-na, Rochette, Miki, and Kostner are the five best skaters in the world and the medals next year (unless people really improve) are really between those 5.

    I think the last two groups start at 9. But 6:50 EST is when the whole thing starts.

    Mao might top Joannie, but it will be a fight. I definitely think Rachael could make top 6 with a good skate, and I'd love to see that. I'm afraid for Alissa, I think there's too much pressure on her, she can't deal with it and she might just crumble. I mean, that 2A in the short... o.O I still can't get over that. If she doesn't get some good advice and figure out how to relax...

    And if Alissa bombs this FS, I get the feeling she might just throw in the towel, take her Nationals Gold and move on from competitive skating. So, tonight could actually be the last time we see her compete...

    Yea I think Asada's FS will rock. I saw her performance in the Grand Prix final and it was fantastic. That music is heavy.

    I also hope Miki can make a splash.

    I still can't believe Yukari isn't here. She has to be one of the cutest.
