    Here's how I see things going into tonight, based on latest practice reports, etc.:

    Mirai and Rachel are the favorites to make the Oly team. They hold their fate in their own hands, and have only themselves to blame if they slip up and it costs them the spot.

    Ashley is in the driver's seat, and she doesn't know it (or maybe she does!). She skates first out of the four of them, and can put pressure on them with a huge, roof-blowing skate and a massive score to go with it. But she MUST be perfect- if not, she leaves the door wiiide open for the others to leave her behind for good.

    Sasha? I don't have much faith in her doing a competitive LP after all these years away. But just the fact that she showed up amidst all this doubt and expectations- that's something to be proud of.

    OMG, less than 3 hours to go!!

    Ashley's practice today went well, according to what she wrote on her twitter. She cant wait to her long and lets see what she does. She needs to skate her best to have the chance to make the team.

    Also, I really do want Sasha to skate her best, with clean jumps. Maybe it will be her last Nationals, and it would be just perfect if she goes well. Her programs at Nationals in 2002, just before the Olympics, were almost perfect, with no falls, I hope she can make it again.

    I like Mirai also, hope she can do a perfect program tonight!

    About Flatt, I dont know exactly, but I just dont like her programs. Her jumps are weird, the position she has in the air is strange. I dont know why. Her coreography doesnt excite me. I mean, her hand on the lips, her hand up and down all the time, her shaking shoulders are kind of way to show her lack of coreoghraphy. At least she seems to be having fun skating. Or maybe she does that just to impress the judges, like Plushenko does. Her spins are not so cool as Sasha's spins. I hope she doesnt make the team.

    Frankly, IMO the best skater US have, technically and artistically speaking is Sasha. Its just awesome to watch her, I dont feel the same when I watch others. If shes perfect, she is the one who can bring an Olympic medal to the USA.

    Artistically, yes. Technically, no way! Rachael, Mirai, and Ashley have better technique than Sasha. It doesn't really matter though so much as who lands the jumps tonight.

    Not sure what you mean about Ashley not having done 3 jump combinations; she landed a triple flip-double toe-double toe at the GPF. But she hasn't done a 3-3 combination in competition since US Nationals 2008 I think :s. I miss Ashley's 3-3. It sort of saddens me that she's not attempting them here; especially now she's a couple points away from the team. But I guess it's not worth the risk. And if she executes her jumps well, the judges have always really rewarded her for it; so skating clean and perfect seems to be the best strategy instead of risking the 3-3...

    I really hope Ashley kicks but in the LP and leaves some of the skaters that are ahead of her in the dust! I really, really want to see her live in Turin! And being the loving fan that I am, I would love to see her make that Olympic dream come true. She's worked so hard for it this season... I'm not sure I'm going to be able to watch it tonight; it's crazy in the middle of the night, and I'm not home but at my aunt's and I'm not sure it's fair to them and their kids to have me walking about the house so I can watch figure skating. Plus I'm entirely dependent on an online NBC stream, which is another factor of uncertainty that might just make it not worth it. Plus, I'd just die of stress.... So... it's a tough choice...

    Very nice assessment. I'm most nervous for Mirai and Rachael b/c as you say it's theirs to lose. Sasha's too but I think she will be happy to have tried her best no matter what happens, since coming back proved more difficult than I think even she expected. Go Sasha!! Go Mirai!! Go Rachael!! Go Ashley

    Alissa just doesn't have the competitive verve. But I bet Scott will try to get her on SOI. Rachael could be a dangerous threat on the international level if she would improve her carriage across the ice (oh that drives me nuts!!) and also pick up some speed.

    Go Mirai and Sasha!

    Here we go! Aaargh!!!!!!!
    Go Sasha!
    Go Mirai, Ashley, Bebe, Emily, Lanie Diggs, Becky Bereswill, Ellie Kawamura, Kayla Howie, and many more!

    We are here, aren't we?

    Oh too bad - Kayla w/d. Better luck next year, KH! Christina Maria is attempting a Sasha Start (TM) by redoing her laces just after getting on the ice.

    Just like you didn't have much faith in her showing up, didn't have much faith in her skating a decent SP? She's there, she's in good shape, she didn't show up to barely make it through a LP.

    Despite the fear of jinxing my favorite skater in the history of skating, I'm gonna stick my neck out with the following order:

    Sasha - Hits it out of the park this time.
    Rachael - Skates clean despite having to follow Sasha
    Ashley - Skates all out (she has nothing to lose)
    Mirai - Crushes under pressure

    Rachael may surprise us and not skate clean, in which case, Ashley takes second and wins her spot on the Olympic team, but she has a huge point gap to leap.

    Let's hope you're right, Dark Eyes!

    (BTW - can you guess where I got my user name? Think Torino, 2006. )
