    What's going on with the NHK events?? The paris are spalt fest!! Most of the men, bomb their skate and now the ladies too??? I'm very dissapointed, especially for Miki and Ashley. They can do way better than this.

    I think maybe the japanese crazy fans are getting into all the skaters. Too much pressure and distraction???

    As I've said before, I would not be surprised or sorry to see her win in 2010. She has something special that others do not - joy, confidence, and a sense of humor, even about herself! - and works hard. All it would take is for her to have the performance of her life while Yu Na has her first meltdown and the others skate pretty much the way they've been skating. I love this girl and wish her the best.

    That said, I can't imagine why her team gave her such an ugly FP and costume! That fringe between her legs all the time must be so annoying to skate with!

    Anybody else think she looks like Shirley MacLaine?

    Let's see how Yuna does at SA and the GPF. So far she seems invincible, but it she has an off-night (and gets scores closer to what everyone else has been getting), suddenly it could be anyone's game...maybe it's just my own wishful thinking, I dunno...the Olys have proven to shake things up every time...

    Only in womens, though. The Torino games, from what I can tell, had three disciplines that went pretty much according to plan.

    The winner of ladies event at TEB scored 210.03.
    The winner at CoR scored 171.93.
    The winner at CoC scored 176.66.
    The winner at NHK scored 162.55.

    Just splendid.
    Boy, you said it. I wonder if Yuna's scores are just psyching everyone out, especially the other top skaters. Must be hard to think you are training so hard for Olympic silver and bronze.
    We haven't seen the best yet from the likes of Rochette and Ando though ... oh who am I kidding ... even those two would need a meltdown from Yuna to win. Some posters seem to want Yuna to mess up just to make things more interesting. But as far as I'm concerned, her brilliant skating is the ONLY thing exciting this season for the women. It'd be awful if she too collapsed.

    BUT congrats to Ashley!! She is right to be excited for the rest of the season.

    I think pretty much all the ladies are think about silver or bronze. Gold is just out of reach for everyone. I mean yuna has to fall or pop at least 4 jumps and some body has to land 7 triples to over take her.
    I'm sure everyone are totally psyout are. 35 points between yuna and next highest score winner?? Ouch!

    So who will be in the GPF???
    Ando: 30 (but will need to do two times better to be on the podium in final)
    Kim: 15 (win at SA is pretty much written in stone, unless she withdrawn)
    Leonova: 24 (edge out wagner on tie breaker)
    Wagner: 24
    Akiko 15 (next event in SC, 1 to 4th place and she is in, but I predict she will finish no lower than 2nd)
    Rochett 11 (need to win SC, or silver with higher score than Wagner and Leonova)

    I think these six might be the final qualifier.

    Oh, interesting. How does the tie breaker work? argh, I really hope Ashley makes it. Do any of the other American ladies still have a chance?

    She looked like she was going to cry ... but I think she was just disappointed in herself. Well, maybe when the dust settles she'll be justly proud of having won back to back gold medals, no matter what. Her artistry and flexibility has really improved, IMO. Her LP is a great vehicle for showing off her strengths, she just needs to own it. A big gimmicky for me, but she seems into it and that's what matters. I think she's the type that needs to play a character. Keep going Miki!!

    Happy for Ashley! She's going to GPF, which is a pleasant surprise, to be honest. I love that she doesn't look "scared".
    Keep it up!
