Sorry all, left the computer to watch the CCTV5 TV broadcast, didn't realize freeetv stream had crapped out. McL/Bru skate was not bad.
SBS 3S, landed, but she swung out a little, still held on though. Some -GOE I would think.
3Lz twist, nice and clean though not Zhang-like impressive. Looked like a double to me.
SBS spins, off sync a bit but not a disaster
Throw 3Lo--Great job, nice position and solid landing
Lift--Good, strong, steady. Rockne is a beast!
Spiral--she didn't fall this time.
Partner spins--good positions, one of the better in this comp.
Overall, fairly slow and very cautious and deliberate, but they got the job done. 2nd place 64.56 -- I am surprised they got that close to the Zhangs.
Yeah! Lets get this party started.
If M/B beat z/z will we have another carolina/alyssa uproar
M/B beat Zhangs on TES , Zhangs over M/B on PCS

Reason: added note
First...I didn't know that, so that's why I was asking.

I would not have thought it before but if M/B skates clean they could beat Z/Z, especially if Z/Z skates like they did today. If M/B excites the judges and they can do that. That would be pretty cool if they got the gold. I am not a fan of theirs but believe anything is possible in sport.
Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
Yay for Keauna and Rockne. I reallly hope they can win. It would be such a good end to another rough season. Beautiful program and she finally landed the salchow.
Good move by the Zhangs changing the SP but they are still behind the top teams in the world.
I know, very odd! I'm just glad this wasnt at all like the short at us nationals.

Hope Megan Duhamel's fall (the description was that her foot crumpled) was not related to the injury (nerve damage?) that kept them off the ice following Skate America. Any word?
Definite "yay" for M/B
I'm sorry you took it as such, it's a basic question, it's asked in every thread, it just seems like eventually everyone will know...
