    Thanks! I'll make sure to watch them later, though I'm pretty sure I've already seen Evgeni & Stephane (not his SP though).

    Stephane's last step sequance in his SP is very entertaining. :D

    I am really liking what I am seeing so far of Stephane's new FS - a lot of depth, excellent control of his edges in his footwork, transitions and expression. Very reminiscent of Petr Barna!

    Pretty useless effort by Plushy.

    I really like Stephane's style- very lyrical yet masculine. Kind of a silly music choice for the SP (the cavalry tune in the end I mean) and in the FS I like that he put off the Drinking Song until the very end of the program =p.

    Omg, thanks seniorita for the brand new LP practice of Zhenya!!!!!!

    His 4T/3T I had to watch again & again & again, lol, seriously I wish at that moment I was somehow teleported to the arena to watch it in person. If what I felt (aka chills) just from my computer screen, I can't imagine what it must feel like in person.

    I like his quick turns in opposite directions, as well as that mini spread eagle (reminiscent of Brian Boitano's) -- fluid, fast, gorgeous --- but my favorite is his step sequence straight down the rink, totally reminiscent of his 2006 Olympic one!

    Lol, I can see why Evan Lysacek's reminded me of Zhenya's last night -- emulation is the greatest form of compliment -- and whom to emulate but the very best!

    PS: just now watched Stephane's SP practice, and am honestly glad that he seems to have gotten his jumps back! I want everybody to skate their very best, and may the best man win!

    By the way, I also noticed how the other skaters got out of Evgeni's way when he was practicing, but not so much Stephane. It is my understanding that when a skater's music plays, the other skaters are supposed to make room for him/her.

    Stepahne's LP I can watch all day. What beauty. His SP is good, not the music I would have picked, but he makes anything look good. Plushenko didn't seem to be doing much.

    Domina and Shabalin looked slightly better, but I will be very dissapointed if they win this competition.

    Does this mean that we'll see PLUSHY OBSTRUCTED BY LAMBIEL or SWISS SKATERS INTERRUPT PLUSHENKO PRACTICE uber-videos on Youtube?


    On a more serious note, however, I agree with seniorita--I don't think Lambiel was in the same practice group as Plushenko.

    And he wasn't
    He was in the practice group number one, with Pfeifer, Romanenkov, Parr, Berntsson and Schultheiss:

    ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I didn't understand what seniorita meant nor you either evangeline, then it came to me what you two thought I meant, and I couldn't stop laughing.

    MY APOLOGIES, I guess I didn't word myself correctly. What I meant to say was that during Evgeni's practice the other skaters got out of his way. However, during Stephane's practice, the other skaters didn't. Therefore, I just assumed they had more respect for Evgeni because he is after all the King. And I felt kinda sorry for Stephane because I didn't think the other skaters respected him too much. That's all I meant.

    No biggie in the grand scheme of things. It was my perception after all. Might not even be true. No harm done.

    GOOOOOOO EVGENI & STEPHANE!!!!
