    There are so many skaters that I want on the podium in all disciplines but only one who I don't want to see there- Plush. His arrogance ruins my ability to enjoy anything about his skating.

    I'm on the Plushenko/Joubert/Lysacek nightmare train.

    Flatt for the ladies.

    Anyone but S/Z for the gold in pairs.

    Either of the D/Ss in ice dance.

    Any other configurations are fine!

    Actually, now that I think about it, Plushenko has won the OGM already. I could do without him winning again, although in the end I don't care much at all. Now, for the ladies, as long as Rochette or Suzuki doesn't win I'm fine, although I can think of other undesirable outcomes there as well.

    3. V/M or D/W (they def dont deserve bronze since they should be getting gold or silver)

    I guess nightmares are subjective things. My Podium Scream Team would be any man who medals without at least one quad, a Flatt that doesn't go splat in the Ladies event, and any skater in any discipline who medals dressed like a circus pony.

    Hey Audrey19! It's just my guess, but maybe some view them medaling at the Olympics as a nightmare because they haven't competed even once this season and none of us have seen their full programs in any phase of the ice dance competition. I personally love Isabelle and Olivier, but even I can't predict them as my dream Olympic gold medalists in the thread on this forum because I have no idea of the quality of their programs or their music selections for this season, and whether or not I will like their programs. If Isa and Oli win OG, I will be very excited for them and I will believe they truly deserved it because they are wonderful dancers, but I wish we had seen them compete this season, at Europeans at least. GO D/S . . . I HOPE YOU DO YOUR BEST!!!

    Here are my (realistic nightmare podiums)

    Men

    Lysacek, (he's one of the last 6.0 skaters left, but he bores me), Plushenko (He's a great technician but this year's programs are dreadful and he's already one enough medals), Chan (Although he's a great skater, he hasn't been around long enough, plus it's would make the Canadian federation happy)

    Ladies
    Flatt (I like here, but like Chan, it would be too soon), Lepisto (I never got it) and anybody else who isn't Yu-Na, Mao, Miki or Carolina.

    Ice-dancing

    Dom/Shabs (need I explain why?)
    B/A (these guys have got everything for them, only their FD's are allways out of the subject)
    V/M (good quality skating but dead boring)

    Pairs
    D/D (Yawn)
    K/S (I liked what they did last year, but this year is just awful)
    M/T (two ok Russian teams in front of people like S/Z, S/S, P/T would just get me mad!)

    Del/Schoes haven't always been great artists and lathough they are artistic they aren't always esthetic (they've had some awful costumes). Maybe also because when they one their wold gold medal, they didn't interpret the program as the did during the season.

    Would you?
    In that case, if Flatt wins gold, I'll send your family a lovely corsage.

    Ladies: If YuNa (especially!!), Mao, Joannie or Miki are not the Gold, I will be very sad.
    Men: If Jeremy Abbott doesn't make the podium, I will be sad.
    Pairs: If Shen/Zhao don't win Gold.
    Ice Dance: If it's not taken out of the medal events after this Olympics.
