    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.

    How awesome would it be if Coco was commentating the figure skating? I suspect it would go something like:

    "I have no idea what's going on here. This mullet guy is landing jumps and trying to convince the judges to sleep with him by doing his 'come hither' moves."

    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.

    :boohoo:

    Did NBC show Mao or Dai? Or did they just ignore the Japanese skaters again? :sheesh:

    The only skaters they have shown are Joannie, Evgeni, Davis/White, Yu-Na, and Evan. What a pathetic network! They haven't even shown Shen/Zhao!

    Wanna hear something more? NBC is not really airing the World Championships either. Universal Sports is (live and every skater).

    That's because NBC and other American networks provide a substantial chunk of the funding for the IOC. And in turn, NBC and such have to show ads and try to make some of that bank back. Our loss is enabling your enjoyment. >:[ You owe it to us to pirate your feeds and upload your videos.

    Omg. They don't even show the gold medalist for pairs! They should show all medalists!

    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.
