Maybe it's just be but the gala seemed average if not total crap.
The oh so wonderful "This momentous moment. . . . " () is a perfect example of cheesiness. The choice of music at the end and the general "gloom" topic is just... gah
And no encores!? No encores!!?
As for the performances S/Z, Lambiel, Kavaguti & Smirnov, Rochette and Plushenko are about all I can remember right now.
I'm sorry for our fellow figure skating fans in US. Canada is the best country to live for figure skating fans...........and everyone else I might add. THANK YOU CTV/TSN/SNET for airing every single skater in every event and the exhibition. WE LOVE THEM ALL AND YOU ROCK.
Did NBC show Mao or Dai? Or did they just ignore the Japanese skaters again? :sheesh:
They skated in the first session.
Wanna hear something more? NBC is not really airing the World Championships either. Universal Sports is (live and every skater).
And what was up with the running order?
Glad I did not reside in US. Look at US national that cover the whole event and now the most precious olympic event they treated the broadcast wrorst than the beauty pageant.
I'm not an Evan fan, but I think his exhibition programme was a wise choice. You can't go wrong with Gershwin!
I loved Yu-Na's dress, by the way. I found it tasteful and beautiful, and utterly befitting.
Maybe NBC will show more on tape delays. Right now - more bobsled zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
