    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.
    Mirai has the best coach, I think, for learning to skate under pressure, so I have much hope that will not happen.

    Has the competition started yet? Because my NBC won't start broadcasting the event for two more hours. I'm assuming we'll miss the first two groups?

    So, is the competition discussion here? Kristina-Marie Sperduto. I thought she skated well. Pretty girl. Loved the dress. She is happy to have skated well.

    I'm guessing Kayla Howey withdrew? I missed that part.

    Oh, I didn't notice that part of DE's prediction. I don't want Mirai to collapse. Rachael can collapse, if anyone. (Sorry, R!)

    Yup and I missed the reason.

    BTW, I'm very contented with Tara's announcing. Her voice is absolutely fine by me and she's quite restrained, mainly just naming elements and giving slight editorial comments. She's way better than the Sandra/Scott combo.

    Rebecca Stern also seems happy. Was that music "The High and the Mighty".

    I hope he brought his skates with him.

    Lanie is such a pleasing skater. Not a fabulous outing but she moves so naturally and makes such pretty shapes on the ice. She looks happy skating. And her dress was perfect. It looks like silk.

    There is a graphic at the very beginning of the skate that has it. I often miss them, though. And - I think they are wrong a lot of the time. Laney Diggs did NOT skate to Un Sospero by Liszt. That was Phantom. I like Laney's skating.

    Kawamura has a very pretty layback position. She pulled it together after a couple of mistakes at the beginning.

    OUCH. A tough skate. With some nice moments. Bad spiral position. She doesn't seem in the best shape.

    Any of you who haven't seen the NBC nightly news - there is a story about Sasha coming up. It's about 16 minutes into the broadcast.
