    I think it's time you crawled back to your Kim Uberdom now. Or go back to Youtube.

    Watch more figure skating. And you'll know Pricess Kim Yuna is not the only skater in the world who has ever gotten questionable/unfair UR calls. And no, she's not perfect.

    Totally agree. In all post competition interviews this season, she says she has learned and she will move on....but I don't think she does. She has carried her flip problem from Paris to Lake Placid and now in Tokyo. She's gotta shake it and get it out of her heads. Just know in her heart how capable she is and remember only how well she can and does do the jumps in practice and put them on the ice when it counts. I keep my fingers crossed that she will triumph in the Long.

Miki's layback had one feature (8 revs in one position) so it should have gotten level 1, and my guess is it also got minus GOEs. Then Miki's PCS were probably affected because she stood there for an eternity before the steps -- obviously that layback was supposed to have more features (sideways-leaning spin was one she attempted but didn't hold for the required 3 revs since it was badly centered from the start), but she exited early and the music had to catch up.

    Miki skated great, for sure, and deserves to be 1st, but Yuna's basic skating -- her posture, especially -- is so much better. JMHO.

    Disney takes a dim view of anyone dissing the Mouse.

    ^^Yeah Nancy had already put her foot in her mouth earlier at the Olympics when she was overheard dissing Oskana for taking too long to come out for the medal ceremony (apparently Oskana was fixing her make up because of all her tears) Maybe someone remembers. It was broadcasted live on t.v. and I was watching but I am having a brain freeze and cannot remember the exact words. It was all over the news the next day. Then she goes and disses Mickey. Disney and Mickey were a much better fit with Michelle than with Nancy.

    I think it was along the lines of "What's the point? She's just going to cry again."

    because she was slightly ahead of the music due to the spin.

    You do not make any sense. Pricess Kim Yuna is not the only skater in the world who has ever gotten questionable/unfair UR calls ---> this is the exact reason why I need to ask ISU to perform post morterm of the wrong DG. Otherwise, it never gets improved. You can just live with unfairness but I am not happy and I will fight for it.

    I'm hoping this is meant to be sarcasm? Otherwise...um...

    I've heard about these crazy Yuna-bots. Am I in the presence of one?

    I remember that Kerrigan quote, darkestmoon..it came after some pacing and looking annoyed. Skaters please take note..it's also a bad idea to wear a gold costume as if you've got it in the bag and then appear ungracious when you lose.To add to weirdness of it all ,they couldn't find the Ukrainian anthem..I'm sure that spawned a few conspiracy theories...Then, after Nancy's Mickey slip-up , Oksana was quoted in the press saying she loved Mickey (and Disneyland )..Oh, the good old days !

    As much as I felt bad for Kerrigan getting whacked on the knee by Tonya's thugs, she didn't endear herself by bad mouthing Oksana at the medal ceremony and the unnecessary comment at the Disney parade. I'm sure they paid her very well for the appearance and isn't it an honor to be asked to do that? I also always felt Kristy Yamaguchi got jiff on endorsement especially compared to Kerrigan. Kristy won a OGM and two world championship plus a US championship. Kerrigan got a silver at the Olympics and no world championship and one US championship. And IMO Kristy has a nicer personality. Oh well, at least Kristy won Dancing with the stars. Wouldn't it be fun if they had a special Dancing with the stars only with past figure skating champions? That might get their competitive juices flowing again!!

    Edit: Possible nominees for Figure Skating Dancing with the Stars

    Hmmmm let's see... how about (remember this is for a US audience):

    Michelle Kwan
    Brian Boitano
    Torvil and Dean (okay they might be a bit too old)
    Ekaterina Gordeeva
    Elvis Stojko
    Plushenko (wouldn't that be delicious? He could point #1 during his dance!)
    Sasha Cohen
    Jamie Sele/David Pelletier
    Grishuk/Platov
    Arakawa (her English might limit her here)
    Todd Eldredge
    Kurt Browning (he can bring his ballerina wife)
    etc..
