    An interesting observation BOP.

    I think back to Calgary 1988 and how the Ladies competition featuring returning Olympic champion Katerina Witt played a secondary role to the men's event and the "Battle of The Brians."

    Watching this season's GP series leads me to believe I will enjoy the Men's competition in Vancouver more than the Ladie's event for one simple reason - the skating will be so much better.

    I could be wrong about that and who is to say how well the men will skate? There could be meltdowns from some of the favorites and it could turn out like Torino...............

    The suprise element is out there. It's in everyone's head I suppose.. Could it be that against all expectations men will bomb and ladies will flourish?

    Great phrase and it definitely makes Dai leap to my mind's eye.

    (Blades, I'm trying to do my bit for the men.)

    I sense you meant that as a compliment.

    But then again, there is the ladies short program thread. 38,000 views and 496 posts, with 494 of them of them on the topic of whether or not Yu-na Kim's triple toe should have been downgraded.

    Of course, anything Lambiel is good.
    although sonetimes taka-chan is too eccentric (ummm spelling?) for my taste.

    Ugh, did you have to remind us? That was the most boring thread I have EVER seen. The bots threaten to make even the Olympics discussions boring.

    You can probably prevent people from registering during the Oly to stop bots from joining just so they can say something mean about Yuna and/or Mao. I don't care for Yuna-bots or Mao-bots.
