    Well, I think I have only one thing to say:

    This was supposed to be the big Mao Asada vs. Yuna Kim showdown.

    But instead, we got the Yuna Kim vs. Yuna Kim showdown.

New country, new city, new training rink, new coach, new technique/teaching style . . . everything is so new for her! Still, I wanted her to do much better than she showed today.

    Still cheering for you, Caro!
    I feel for ya. On a good note Carolina got the 3rd highest PC's (28.36) . They were all in the 7's range and one 6.85 in TR. If she gets her jumps together she will be competitive.

    Not quite. The technical caller still calls the downgrades, but this info isn't communicated to the judges who can now give positive GOEs if they feel like the jump was otherwise well-executed (previously, they were required to give negative GOEs for a UR). This way, an under-rotated 3-3 can potentially get more points than a 3-2 (whereas previously, an under-rotated 3-3 got less points than a 3-2).

    youtube

    For those who have not seen the performances yet,
    here are yuna and Mao's performances. I keep checking youtube to see if any other skaters' video clips are uploaded yet, but so far no luck!

    Agreed. Yukari has nice reliable skating and is under appreciated. Hope this is a good year for her regardless of what the judges do.

    No kidding. Yu-Na can fall 3 or 4 times or skip 3 or 4 of her jumping passes in the LP and still win b/c of her 17 point lead after the SP.

    Yuna could take a 4-minute-long dump on the ice for her Free Skate and still win the event (with positive GOE for correct edge on touch-down).

    Carolina's dress

    Hey guys........ I couldn't see very well because I was watching it online,
    but I read from another board that there was something horribly wrong with Carolina's dress, and it showed very apparently clearly when they were showing in a slow motion video clip. Has anyone noticed this?!?!? I will watch it again on NBC, but I really hope it's not true.

    Well obviously it's one of two. I don't want to say it since I could not see it clearly. I was watching it on my computer and the screen was so fuzzy. ^^;;;;;;;; If no one here has noticed it, then I am gonna watch it on HD on sunday when NBC will broadcast it.................... But if she did have some problems, then I certainly hope that she would fix it asap!!!!!

    Did she have a wardrobe malfunction?

    Sorry to be the potential bearer of bad news but NBC is scheduled to show the men's and ladies' free skates, making it likely we won't see any short programs. (They MIGHT show Yuna's to explain why she's wiping the ice clean so far, though)

    Is NBC broadcasting SPs? I thought they were only showing LPs of the ladies and men.

    Oh I certainly hope they will show the SP! Last time when Skate america was on NBC, they said only FS will be broadcasted, but SP also was shown. I hope it will be the case here again!!
