I think gkelly was talking about the ladies long program, which was scheduled for 4:00-8:00 in Spokane. I think the last two hours were televised live, 9:00-11:00 on the east coast.Originally Posted by janetfan
The article was about the short program, which was indeed on too late for most east coast viewers., ending at 2:00 AM. Thank goodness for all the Golden Skate play-by-playuers. I could get up the next morning and check out the whole competition.
How's this for spot-on judging? The judges gave Mirai's opening 3Lz+2T combo exactly 0.43 points more than Sasha's. Mirai won the short program over Sasha by exactly 0.43 points.If you want to believe that if Mirai's opening 3x2 combo had been as sloppy as Sasha's - and still would have received the same score that is your prerogative.
