    It wasn't the same judge who gave S/S the 10, but the judge you mention also gave Moore-Towers and Moskovich higher PCS scores than Mukhortova/Trankov. Gee, I wonder where that judge is from.

    you're right. i'm sitting here with a big grin, i'm in the glow of a new love by that i mean S&S, not robin by himself

    no matter what the judges do in the ladies, men, dance i won't get in a snit now. i've got my love to keep me warm.

    The Republic of Antarctica, clearly. Those scores are actually hilarious, though. Funny seeing that judge give Denney/Barret higher scores than Mt/M though. Doesn't make sense.

    I'm sitting here like a married or engaged person who is suddenly wildly infatuated with the wrong person.

    S&Z fan, I am. But S&S in this comp were just beautiful. What am I going to do?

    Let me know and I will disavow any knowledge. I'm like the CIA that way. All knowledge of wrong doing erased. Just call me the ISU.

    .... okay, sorry, I had to get that dig in there. Even if it was cheap and poorly written.

    No i was rather thinking about the judge who gave them 7.75 for performance execution to S/S.
    interesting so many errors are summing up mostly to give the wright placement (mostly), but their can be exceptions like lepisto.

    i know! i was all for shen/zhao until now.

    ummm.... i think you just hope that both pairs skate their best and have no regrets about having put it all out there? and maybe if they both skate their best, there is a clear difference between them and you won't get mad if the judges don't make their decisions controversial?

    anyway, i was not engaged. i'm just... checking out photos on e-harmony. i can fanwhore as many pairs as i like

    Congrats to the medalists.

    Aliona/Robin - their FP was breathtaking and I love their Out of Africa Music.
    IMO This program connects them in a way their other programs did not, they were awesome.

    Maria and Max- If they continue to skate like they did today they will be on the podium in Vancouver. Just beautiful skating today from them.

    I was pleased with the way Caydee and Jeremy skated.

    Is this the first time a 10 has been given out? (in any discipline)

    Pairs is shaping up to be an awsome event.
    GPF can't come soon enough...

    It really is. I mean, we have been complaining for such a long time about bad quality among the pairs - but just look at them now! There are S/Z and S/S. P/T and M/T had a super season so far. K/S didn't look bad either. This time all the couples at the GPF could basically win the GPF, of course only if S/Z and S/S have an off day.

    possibly for CoP judging... but certainly not in skating...
