    You can see the protocols on the Vancouver site in real time for all skating events.

    Just click the + sign next to each pairs' names to expand the results.

    Wish ISU would add this to their site next season.

    -Pang & Tong... ROBBED!!! Their scores should've been within tenths from Yuko & Sasha. One of my favorite performances of the night. Can anyone explain why they got a 1-point deduction? They finished on time!
    -Zhang-squared... All tricks, no artistry! :sheesh: At least they're not in the top 3 right now so I'll accept that!
    -Our favorite clowns (Ali & Robin)... what a finish to a great pairs competition. They are in par with Shen/Zhao so I'm not surprised how close the scores are. Very cute that Ali was wiping off Robin's cheek after she kisses him. Ingo looks good no matter which jacket he wears. Plus using Miley's "Party In The USA" is a great way to end the night. They should've renamed it "Party In Van BC".

    It was great watching it all over again without any commentary!

    i generally really like dube & davison, but i feel they were severely overmarked. Langlois & hay skated beautifully & should have been placed higher than d&d.

    I am jumping over the moon for amanda & mark, and hope they skate really well for the long proram. I think caydee & jeremy skated quite well despite that downgraded jump.

    Can't wait to see the finals!

    It was so sad. If you ever read about Maxim's back story and struggles it will break your heart. He grew up constantly training, living in a tiny room, eating terrible cafeteria food every day, and basically living like a monk in freezing Russia all because he had an Olympic dream and now it is all but crushed :(...

    But as long as P/T & S/S do well in the FS I will be happy Sorry but I'm probably one of the only non S/Z fans out there, they've had so many Olympic chances and their FS is... not my cup of tea. I love S/S's "Out of Africa" sooo much and they've been my #1 for years. Also love P/T's expression and grace. S/Z while technically flawless are a little robotic and boring in their choreography/artistry for my liking. As for K/S, I like some things about them, but their FS annoys me and I enjoyed their programs from last season much more.

    So ripped off!!! They were brilliant and their artistry and grace moved me to tears. I know this will sound strange, but when a team can make me forget I'm watching Pairs skating it means they were brilliant in my book. The elements flowed together seamlessly and the chroreography was gorgeous, their expression was unmatched. They should have had monster PCSs. That was the only performance I wanted to watch again immediately. They were sublime.

    I'm not a fan of their skating either, never was. But if they're flawless again today, and others succumb to nerves and make mistakes... well, what can I do other than accept the result?
    "Out of Africa" is a pure magic to me.

    Actually I'm kinda torn. S/Z is the sentimental favorite and I want them to win gold because a Chinese team has never won before and they have worked so hard all these years. But I have a soft spot for S/S and K/S. S/S program is just so smooth and lovely to watch. I like K/S primarily because of Yuko. She definitely has presence on the ice and fun to watch.

    Yes, it's quite unfortunate. That 3 pts cushion Yuko and Alex have over them might mean the difference the podium and 4th again. That 1 pt deduction for time was really really unfortunate.

    LOL Dick Button was just complaining on NBC about the hideous catch foot positions in the death spirals. He believes the CoP has destroyed this element. I agree. I'd rather see a basic death spiral done fast and beautifully, than these hideous contortions that have become popular.

    Agree! Give me an "easier" but prettier basic death spiral than the ugh I've seen last night.

    Totally agree! Even my non-skating husband said it was ugly.

    I really like S/S "out of africa" program. It's pure magic when it's on. I don't care for S/Z program at all. It's like business as usual. There is no new idea, no newness, nothing that makes me root for them.
    K/S "the blue danube" is another of my favorite. I love that waltz piece. Their lift, their line, spins, etc... are both intricate and different. I rather watch them than the run of the mill Shen/Zhao.
