    At least you don't have a Math and Visual Arts exam.
    But it being your birthday isn't the best.

    I'm really hoping for Judy Blumberg to commentate this morning. That way I can actually learn a bit about CD.

    Happy Birthday Tonichelle. Watch later. It will be OK.

    Edited to add - I just saw that Judy is the Technical Specialist for Dance so no commentating for her. Al least I know some of the things she is looking for.

    Phew a couple of 9+s for B@A in the PCS. I'm not watching this just looking at the scores.

    Uh huh. To the dance experts out there who can watch this, were B/A overscored or justly scored? Seems a wee bit high to me. And I love B/A.

    Jason Deveikis, Ann Arbor FSC

    Nice teal blue dress, black pants white shirt.
    This couple had a great deal of difficulty just performing the steps of the dance. At some points they actually stopped. They were wobbly in the dips and timing was very questionable throughout, I thought.

    2 Stephanie Zastrow, St Paul FSC
    Michael Lueck, Burnsville-MN Valley FSC

    Considerably better than couple number 1. The first pattern was better than the second. They had a few little messups in the second and bounced rather than flowing through some of the turns.

    12.63 9.95 total 22.58

    3 Tanith Belbin, IceWorks SC
    Benjamin Agosto, IceWorks SC
    She in very elegant pale aqua dress with scarf like attachment from wrist to sleeve top on one arm. He in tails
    Really good spedd.
    Not crazy about the attitude turns-not smooth., Lovely down the long axis of the rink and in the side by side turns.. Nice dance lift to end.

    22.60 22.42 total 45.02

    The judges loved this better than I did.

    4 Madison Chock, All Year FSC
    Greg Zuerlein, Arctic FSC

    She is aquamarine with silver spangles and strap less. He in tails.
    Really a very nice dance--not as fast as B&A. A little scrambly in the steps down the long axis of the rink

    5 Shannon Wingle, Arctic FSC
    Timothy McKernan, Broadmoor SC

    They had a nice lilting motion and waltz character. She appeared to catch a toepick and fell, or this would have scored quite well.
    He says, "That's OK."

    About the only thing I can do is count. Belbin/Agosto were on time. The first couple certainly wasn't. Forgot to count on the others.

    Hubbels were pretty much on time with a couple of iffies.

    Doris - can you tell me about one of the steps the man takes near the judges? Is he supposed to actually go down on one knee or is it supposed to be a lunge. Or is it sort of open to interpretation?

    AFAIK, it is usually done as a lunge. He is not supposed to let his knee hit the ice. However, some variation in steps is allowed. I like the smooth attitude turn, but the judges rewarded B&A for bouncing through it to the music on the beat-so there is a bit of latitude in the couple's interpretation of each step.

    Warmup Group 2
    6 Madison Hubbell, Ann Arbor FSC
    Keiffer Hubbell, Ann Arbor FSC

    She's in a samba esque dress in red shading to orange and yellow He's in tails.
    I liked the attitude turn part, not so much the dip and turn part.
    They were throwing snow from the blades in a few places.
    Nice toe point.
    Hi to the parents.

    She's in a lovely light shaded blue dress strapless, flows very well
    diagonal in dark blue

    leg floppy in the attitude turns
    snow from blades in quick steps
    stumbled into first corner
    Second pattern a little more smooth and confident

    8 Jane Summersett, Broadmoor SC
    Todd Gilles, Broadmoor SC

    Light aqua dress with some see through side strapping Skirt kind of bunchy for the waltz

    They seemed tight on the first segment of the first pattern and a bitt stumbly at the far corner of the rink. Snow throwing.
    Krylova looking great in the KnC

    Dress pink and trim rather random and negligee like.. White slip. He in tails

    10 Lynn Kriengkrairut, All Year FSC
    Logan Giulietti-Schmitt, Ann Arbor FSC

    Pale blue dress, pretty but a bit revealing for waltz. He's in a black peasant blouse (spangled) and black pants.

    They lacked some speed and seemed to be thinking their way through the dance a bit.

    Doris would that be Angelika Krylova who is coaching Sommersett and Gilles? If so, hell it would have been worth the $29 just to see her for a few seconds. I loved her!!!!
