    No, we just love her flutz and all.

    What makes you think Flatt's 3-3 was downgraded? In slo-mo, it's definitely not.
    Both Sandra and Scott said the 3T was fully rotated. Scott can be unreliable when it comes to calling rotation, but Sandra will tell it like it is. She's too negative to call something borderline borderline.

    Rachael was grossly overscored. She barely hung onto the jumps and gets a 69 with higher PCS than Mirai?! BASED ON WHAT?? Surely not speed or jumps...her 3-3 wasn't even as good as Gao's. Mirai skated clean, great landings etc etc...luckily the rest of the scoring, Flatt aside, was more or less on target. Please, do not hold up that girl scout.

    Oh well, bed time for me. The FS WILL be the nail-biter that I wanted it to be...

    Really wished Sasha removed the gloves, the dress itself is stunning.

    Everyone was overscored to some extent but If anyone was overscored beyond "nationals bump" I'd say it was Wagner.

    Wagner's other two jumps were of better quality than Rachael's. True, everyone was overscored as is how Nationals goes but comparatively Rachael's performance was no where NEAR Nagasu or Cohens. Rachael even admitted she barely hung onto the first two passes. Complete BS.

    Mirai last. A lot of time to get nervous...

    Flatt can handle it, though, I have faith in her.

    Wagner and Cohen - not sure what to expect from them. I think Wagner will attack her FS coming from behind- she seems to be an LP skater- and Cohen is the opposite. Based on what I saw in the SP I'd be really, REALLY surprised at a clean performance from her (Cohen).

    But scoring aside, who would you put in 3rd instead of Rachael? There's no one. The top three are deservedly the top three.

    I'd have to go back and watch Flatt's performance again but I was impressed with what I saw.The normally bland skater was really showing off out there!

    Yeah funny, Sasha is still a mystery. Apart from whether she can hold it together, we still don't really know what her LP will be and how technically competitive it will be.

    Its not like we arrange the skaters after the fact. She was the 3rd best but her score does NOT reflect the difference in performance. A 1 point difference suggests she was on about the same level as Sasha and Mirai and she simply wasn't. She was slow, her jumps had that weird swing at the end....but hey she landed a 3-3, albeit precariously, but lets give her a cookie anyway.

We will see how she does in LP.
    Yeah, both Sandra and Scott said she 2footed the flutz, underrotated the flip. It's so strange that they don't slo-mo her jumps like they did to Rachael.
    I thought I saw the 2foot landing. Not sure about the underrotation flip as it was too fast.

    My parents, who couldn't tell a Salchow from a cross-over and only know of Michelle Kwan, thought Sasha was the best. OMG. Can't deny that girl sell it like her mortgage depends on it. =)
