    Lol about the quote from Leonova. Gives me a little insight into the mind of an athlete/skater, interesting.

    And good to hear more info. about Evgeni (& Johnny).

    It's about Plushenko's comeback and apparently, the good fortune of a little something we call Youtube

    The following is the schedule for those in the USA (PST):

    FRIDAY, OCT. 23RD

    CD -- 12:30AM
    Men's SP -- 2:45AM
    Pairs SP -- 4:35AM
    Ladies SP -- 6:00AM
    OD -- 7:50AM

    SATURDAY, OCT. 24TH

    Men's FS -- 1:45AM
    Pairs FS -- 4:00AM
    FD -- 5:40AM
    Ladies FS -- 7:40AM
    Are you sure these times are correct? Icenetwork has the times for Eastern standard time and I don't think PST is 5 hrs behind EST.

    Here's icenetwork streaming times...

    5:30 a.m. : Compulsory Dance
    7:45 a.m. : Men's Short Program
    9:35 a.m. : Pairs Short Program

    Here's first mens practice pics from Japanese media. Takahiko Kozuka and.... surprisingly, Evgeny Plushenko. Surprisingly, because they usually only post pics of Japanese figure skaters, so more honor to Plushy

    Thanks for the update ~tapdancer.

    I too checked both icenetwork & the RC schedule, none of which makes sense to me. All I know is that I'm 11 hrs. behind Moscow, Russia's time, thus my configuration of the RC schedule, as listed below:



    Time Schedule
    (Local Time, GMT +03:00)

    Date Time Category Segment
    10/23/2009
    13:30:00 Ice Dance Compulsory Dance
    15:45:00 Men Short Program
    17:35:00 Pairs Short Program
    19:00:00 Ladies Short Program
    20:50:00 Ice Dance Original Dance
    10/24/2009

    And thanks Ximena for the update from Johnny! I'll be praying for you, Johnny, as I am all the competitors. I'd love to see you make the Olympic Team!

    Lol, I just found out my original schedule was off by 2 hrs.

    Which is great really because I need just that amount of time to get some work done (can't believe I'm pulling an all-nighter, haven't done that since college).

    Totally agree about Marat's hot looks.
    So sad he's retiring though.
    Men's tennis won't be the same again!


    Back on topic, thank you so much for the pics and the times, especially.
    I have to go to bed now, but I will wake up anxious and excited!
    Looking forward to watching Plushy skating most of all.
