    Which Discipline are you most excited for?

    Reverting to the thread's question, which discipline are you most excited for? Men, Ladies, Pairs, and/or Dance?

    I am the most excited for Men and Dance. For the men's field, even though it seems like Plushenko may be the" clear-cut winner," for some reason I think that an "upset" can occur where Plushenko may not even get gold or silver.

    For the dance field, there is some heavy competition going between V/M, D/W, and B/A. Also mix in Dom/Shab in for some little controversy and the return of Del/Schoen and I think we shall have a great show in Dance.

    I think the answer to this question is quite predictable: men & dance!

    because... the general public tend to be more excited for the discipline which has top contenders from their home country. (there's always an exception, though)

    US: dance & men
    Canada: dance, ladies, then men
    Russia: men, dance
    China: pair
    Japan: ladies, men
    Korea: laides.

    etc.

    Since this is an American forum...

    All of them! I think this will be the first Winter Games where I not really "rooting" for anyone. I just want to see great competitive skating. That said, it would be very exciting to see a couple of upsets.

    For me, I would probably say in this order:

    1. Men
    2. Pairs
    3. Dance
    4. Ladies

    Though sometimes I may feel like flip-flopping Dance and Ladies depending on what kind of mood I'm in.

    There are actually more Europeans here, as a block, than Americans.

    I can honestly say I'm equally excited for all of them. I have multiple favorites competing in every discipline, and I'm eager to see some good skating. Plus, I get to blab about figure skating for once to my non-skatefan associates, and lord my vastly superior knowledge over their peon heads. This works just as well for any discipline.

    Actually, for the Gold medals, there seems to be a lock on each of the 4 disciplines: Plushenko, Asada, S/Z, D/S. I will be anxious to see how that runs out.

    I have already lost a degree of Olympic enthusiasm hearing about Lindsey Vonn's injury. Yes, I happen to love the Men's and Women's Downhill race as much as most of the skating.

    For the skating I typically enjoy the Ladies the most - but this year I think it will be the Men's competition that will have the best and most interesting skating. Then the Ladies and the Dance. CoP Pairs skating doesn't do it for me but in time I will get used to it.
