    What a lovely description of both Suzuki and Rochette in that article. If everyone skates well, it should be some impressive competition!

    By the way, I just love Akiko's costume. That little schoolgirl shirt over her dress--it's not unglamorous, it's anti-glamorous. She looks as if she just picked up a shirt to throw over her outfit because she was cold. After all the spangles and clingies and whatnot on everyone else's attire, it's a breath of fresh air.

    Several words from a friend who watched the men's practice:

    Chan looks strong, Takahashi looks shaky, Abbott landed some quads and 3As...

    I wonder if chan regrets talking big in the early summer about having a quad in Vancouver. With this injury I seriously doubt that he will even be training them come february. After all, like he said he won't need it to win. He will need all his triple Axels however, and that is what he will have to focus on.

    I'm with you, Silver. I want 'em all to wow us--Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, the whole bunch. How wide do they make podiums? Can they all fit on the top step?

    At least I hope they all do spectacular skates...for their own satisfaction as well as ours.

    There's a Dutch article in one of the main Belgian newspapers stating Kevin is doing really well and has returned to his Pirates of the Caribbean program! Yay! He is coached by Yuri Bureiko.. Did we know that already? Anyway, GO KEVIN!!! I really hope he medals here. That would be such a major upset! *waves the Belgian flag*
