    Can't say I agree with some of the choices...IMO, Lepisto & Leonova are likely to end up above Meier. Certainly don't agree with Inoue/Baldwin over Kawaguti/Smirnov.

    Thanks for the article. Interesting that he put Adam Rippon above both Jeremy Abbott and Johnny Weir. I'd love to see it happen and I hope all three, in fact all the competitors, perform well.

    BTW, I believe Jeremy has changed his LP music to Saint-Saens' Organ Symphony.

    I was quite surprised too, when I saw Inoue and Baldwin over Kawaguchi and Smirnov. They have a throw axel but the Russins are better.
    And an other question. Why Rippon and Abott?

    I think the mens and womens event is completely unpredictabel; They are the most loaded of all gp events; I say the only thing one can be confident in is Takahashi giving a strong performance; proably gold other than that you might as well roll dice or play 52 card pick up so his pridictions to me reflect except for the pairs(I/B) could finish fifth;

    I do hope he's right about Takahashi winning though

    Same! I'd love to see him make a big comeback, I missed him last season.

    I hope D/W did some major overhauling on that FD, because I do not like it. Thank goodness for their OD, but I just can't believe Igor/Marina gave them that for an Olympic FD.

    Excited to see Brezina!! Should be interesting to see him and Rippon in the same event. I also can't wait to see Abbott- I'm a little disappointed he didn't keep his original LP, I love Jupiter!
