I have faith in the swan
Former skater and COMPLETE skating nerd!
3.Caroline Zhang or Mirai Nagasu
*If Sasha Cohen does compete I think she can finish either 1st or 2nd. I doubt she would actually show up if she didn't think she could skate well enough to at least make the Vancouver team.
From what I've seen of the programs I think B&A skating their best could win at least the CD and FD but seeing how the judging has been going all season, 1st and 2nd placements could/should go either way depending on the performances.
I'm so tempted to participate, but I'm tempting the skategods as it is for doing the USFSA Fantasy Skating thing...
Tripping on the Podium
I'm bad at predicting podiums, so instead, I'll predict Final Flights for Ladies and Men!
Alissa, Ashley, Caroline, Mirai, Rachael and Sasha
((Love to see Rachael, Mirai, Ashley))
Adam, Brandon, Evan, Jeremy, Johnny, Ryan
((Love to see Evan, Johnny, Jeremy))
Top two for Dance is bound to be B/A and D/W
Podium for Pairs: M/B, D/B and I/B

Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
I honestly don't care who wins the dance between Tanith and Ben and Meryl and Charlie. Both teams deserve it. May the best team win.
Same for pairs, but my predictions are:
McLaughlin and Brubaker
Inoue and Baldwin
Denney and Barrett
Men: 1. Abbott, 2. Rippon, 3. Weir
Ladies: 1. Cohen, 2. Wagner, 3. Czisny
Pairs: Anyone but I&B
Dance: 1. D&W, 2. Love K&K to be here, 3. B&A
Men: 1. Lysacek, 2. Abbott, 3. Weir
Ladies: 1. Flatt, 2. Wagner, 3. Cohen
Pairs: Don't know and don't care.
Dance: 1. D&W, 2. B&A, 3. don't know.

Ice Dance Obsessee
Men- Abbott, Weir, Rippon
Ladies- Wagner, Flatt, Czisny
Pairs- M/B, C/O, D/B
Dance- D/W, B/A, H/H or N/B (though at this point, I think both D/W and B/A are equally deserving. I just want to see it go to whoever is better)
Men-Lysacek, Abbott, Weir
Ladies- Flatt, Cohen, Wagner
Pairs- M/B, D/B, I/B
Dance- B/A, D/W, S/B or N/B (I hope the latter)
1. Evan--he will have to be carried off in an ambulance to not win.
2/3--Johnny, Jeremy in either order.
I wish: Johnny would skate the performance of his life and get more fame for that than his outfits.:chorus:
1. Belbin and Agosto
2. Davis and White
I wish: The order were reversed, but I think Belbin and Agosto will be held up.:chorus:
1. Rockne and Keauna
2. John and Rena
I wish: Some pair really, really good with realistic medal hopes would burst onto the scene.
If Sasha doesn't show, push everyone up a notch.
I wish: Someone with realistic medal chances internationally beats all of these underachievers.
Barring that, I hope Sasha skates clean, Rachael speeds up a little, Alissa skates clean and Ashley stays true to herself and doesn't try to become a cookie cutter skater.
