    I think we get the point that you didn't like Rachael's performance considering you posted your disdain for it in several different posts! There are people, including the judges, that did.
    Likewise there's are folks on here that really didn't like Sasha's performance either. I think everyone just have their opinions.

    Looks like if we had an election for best skater of the night it would go to Mirai...I haven't seen any anti-Mirai posts anywhere.

    I'm ready to see the LP!

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.
    Well, this is Nationals. Everyone is overscored. I feel like Mirai and Sasha were underscored on their PCS.

    Sadly, I agree. And she's all but won the competition because she has the strongest LP. I hope Mirai and Sasha hang on though!

    Complete BS. When did she admit that? My eyes were glued to the screen the whole time when Andrea interviewed her. Stop spewing lies. Good grief.

    Sasha definitely was underscored on the PCS, especially TT, interpretation, execution. I thought that program PCS should be at least 31.
    Mirai, not so much.

    Top 4 are
    Mirai 70
    Sasha 69.6
    Rachael 69.3
    Ashley 62.x

    The rest are also-rans

    Thanks! Oh wow. Mirai's first? Good for her! Sasha and Rachel are trailing by less than a point though. This is going to be interesting to watch!

    I have to say Rock on Sasha for bringing it!! I held my breath the entire time. My boyfriend thinks Sasha's tech score was too high but her PCS was too low so it evened out.

    I am over the moon about Mirai being in 1st

    My heart broke for Alissa I was sooo hoping she was going to have a clean program. Unfortunately there is no way she is going to be able to make up the deficit.

    I got teared up when that hag Andrea Joyce kept digging in at Alissa. When Alissa's face got flushed and tears appeared in her eyes, while she was trying to be polite and smile for the camera, I just wanted to shove something in Andrea's mouth. My boyfriend laughed as I was yelling at her to leave Alissa alone.

    I also got annoyed that Andrea brought up last years bad showing to Mirai as she was interviewing her. Grrr

    I was also sad for Caroline, poor thing was upset as she left the ice. At least she was able to pull it together for the K&C. I think I had the same shocked face when she fell on the loop. I hope her hand it ok..along with her back. I was glad to hear her say, "theres always next year" dont give up

    Although Emily doubled a jump, other than that she looked good. Much better than she looked at SA.

    I was hoping Bebe wasnt going to rush the flip, especially since the combo looked good. Crud.

    Im sooo wanting to end the competition now and send the top 2 to the Olympics...is that wrong hey, cant blame me for trying

    I hope everyone can keep it together in the LP. I also hope Caroline, Alissa, Bebe & Emily can pull up in the standings. I have a feeling the LP is going to be a nail biter

    Goooo Mirai!!! Goooo Sasha!!!

    Didn't she do that to Alicia Sacramone at the Olympics last year as well? Ugh. Woman doesn't know when to stop.

    Does anyone else think Mirai should have a bigger point lead over Sasha? Not a knock against Sasha . . . she did very well, but I think Mirai was better than her by more than 0.43 of a point. I would have marked Nagasu at least 4 points higher than Cohen. Sasha's jumps were so tight, particularly the 3Lutz and the 2Axel. Even Scott called her Lutz as short of rotation during the broadcast while Mirai's jumps were clearly fully rotated. Mirai's jumps were bigger and had better run-out on the landings. Plus, Mirai skated with more speed than Sasha and Nagasu certainly held her own on the spins and spirals too, which I think are just as good if not better than Sasha's. Anyway, Nagasu, Cohen, and Flatt should all be pleased with their SP efforts. I'm looking forward to the LP, which will be the real test for all of them. Can Nagasu and Cohen battle their longtime LP demons? Can Wagner rise from a bit of a disappointing SP again like last year? Can Flatt win her first senior US title? We'll soon find out.................

    So now that everything is said and done, thoughts? I think the placement is fair, scoring fair enough.


    Rachael: got the night started off right. Great shot at Olympic spot.

    Mirai: absolutely beautiful. If she can keep it together in the LP like I know she can, she should definitely medal and most likely make the US team! (I think a repeat of her SC LP would be adequate, especially if she smiles!)

    Sasha: shocked me. Beautfiul! Has to keep it together in the LP though to make the Oly team, I can only imagine Flatt, Nagasu, and Wagner will be pushing VERY hard tomorrow.

    Ashley: Fall scared me, other than than beautiful. 7 points behind going into the LP, she's definitely still in this but will need to be spot-on in the FS to make the Olympic team (barring some strange occurances).

    Caroline and Alissa: Not their night, too bad. 15-20 points out of the leave, lots of ground to make up in the FS, Olympic chances don't look good but still feasible. Ashley is not too far ahead of Alissa, 8 points, so we shall she.


    Oh and I love Christina and glad they didn't give her junior PCS. I can't wait to see her rock the long! She could potentially be 4th and make the podium! wooo


    sound about right?
