    "Yeah, I don't know how we did either."

    Not great words to utter when leaving the ice. Brodeur and Mattatal have a delightful program, but they (she) just don't seem able to skate it cleanly. I think they'll score higher than we expect because it really does milk the COP for a lot of points. Their lifts are so rock solid.

    99.61 ("still not bad.")

    Yeah, K/B look very despondent (she looks like she can't wait to get off the ice).

    Oh no, another fall from the Russian pair. Give me just one clean program. Is it too much to ask?

    This RUS couple doesn't seem Russian to me at all, displaying none of the tradition of trademark elegance & refinement, et al. It didn't help that their sbs jumps were off & her falling on practically all of them. Neither did the horrid costumes nor music. Nothing really flowed IMHO.

    there were some really bad positions in the air on those lifts for that last pair... not all that great a program IMHO (and I LOVE Pirates of the Caribbean's soundtrack!)

    This Pairs LP has been completely painful to watch.

    Brodeur/Mattattal's halfway decent skate was easily the best thing so far.


    Krasilnikova looks SO ticked, and Bezmaternikh couldn't get out of the kiss and cry fast enough. Eek.

    This Russian pair don't seem to have a lot of chemistry/unison (are they new together?). She seemed to be the weaker skater, I noticed his posture and lines were much better than hers, and he seemed overall solid. Their lack of unison accentuated by their mismatching costumes...

    Nothing good to say about the Russian couple. I would have had them last.

    they r the world junior champs from 2 years ago, but then she was lot smaller and could land her jumps.

    As for the chemistry stuff i blame it on their coach, non of his pairs seem to have that, i can certainly see them splitting, and he (konstantin) should find a new coach and partner (sorry ksenia).

    to me Rena really seems to have a disconnect with the program... all of the romantic moves seem robotic. very unlike her, IMHO.

    Nicely skated program. Too bad about the fall.

    I&B were simply exquisite! Easily should go into 1st place. Everything just flowed ~ the music, the movement, the skaters, the costumes, the choreography, their expression, elements, jumps, et al ~ outstanding, outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!

    EDITED TO ADD: darn, I missed the fall, that's when a popup came onto my screen. :(
