Me, too. But if it is as long as this one, we'll have our work cut out for us in the morning..

Well, the actual competition typically takes place on the first five or six pages

Sometimes. But I think it also happens that a top skater will simply get uniformly high component scores, which do not necessarily go down much on the occasions where the skater misses some of her technical elements.

That was beautiful, if only Carolina skated like that every time. I remember her horrific long program from last year, she singled almost every jump! And after a good SP performance too... I wonder if she maybe has bad nerves/anxiety issues that cause her inconsistency. Then again, the European ladies love to double jumps and fall, but at least they're all tall and pretty to make up for it (joking obviously, though sometimes I wonder...)

Also, I did a doubletake when I watched Alena skate, from her hair, to her costume, to her build, to her style and expression, she just like Irina Slutskaya. Maybe that's why people are making such a fuss about her, she could be the next Irina!

What Orser had to say
Brian Orser has said in an interview he had today that he took a look at the triple-triple in different angles, but that it was difficult to understand the downgrade, saying that the combination was perfect. He also said there had been controversial calls before, and although it might be easy to blame the panel, it is more important to learn more (about how to deal with this), he said.

well, It's because some "let's overscore" judge panels were very generous to Yuna by giving her +1.6 GOE to her terribly underroated 3-3 combo, and Miki only recieved +1.6 GOE with her absolutely fantastic 3-2 combo, well some say 3-1.

Mao and Miki), and then fell in love with Yuna.
Yuna is just incredible. I never understood why Scott Hamilton wouldn't shut up about how amazing it is to see her live, but yeah now I know. lol.
