    Oh, not in the slightest, Toni. I am just the opposite. I do understand mathematics, and I usually get confused when people try to explain things in words, like on this thread. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    But I hope you understood that list that I gave of all the different ways that Tara or Michelle might come out the winner, just by the luck of the draw. This is something that everybody knows might happen, that a skater will just get unlucky and face some judges who are going to vote for the other person no matter what. So I like to see the numbers which explain just how likely that is to happen. In the example that I gave, the judges will favor Tara 70% of the time, and 30% of the time Michelle will squeak through by luck, just because she got a panel of "Kwan judges." (Like me, LOL.)

    Oops, now it's my turn to apoplgize, Toni. I didn't mean to imply that anyone is bad in math. I just wanted to bring up the point that if people want to argue about statistics then we need to look at some actual numbers, not just talk about it.

    Caught this on ABC a couple of hrs. ago...

    Nothing really much to say.......kinda zzzzzzz :o ........but did enjoy seeing Yoshie Onda's new LP for the first time. Also, what a pleasant surprise to see Diana Poth for the first time since I don't know when - too bad about the jumps - good luck next time. Btw, never realized before how pretty she is.......the only way I could tell that was the Diana Poth of old is b/c of the way she jumps (i.e. her chin pointed up in the air; lol :D )........she should wear her hair like this more often b/c she resembles her legendary countrywoman, Henrietta Onodi, hands down the best-looking gymnast in history. JMHO.

    Thought I'd never say this, but I'm actually glad that the senior grand prix circuit is over (no lie). For me, it was the worst one ever (bar none). And if it doesn't get shown anymore in the future, well I can't honestly say that I will miss it, though I think it is important for the athletes to get there programs out there for inspection by the judges. However, go back to the old days and do away with having a grand prix final all together, rather just allow the athletes to pick & choose which event s/he wishes to do and allow them to do so without the added pressure of having to qualify for a final. JMHO.

    Peace & Love, Nadine

    Nadine - ITA. It was quite lackluster. However, I think the Grand Prix is an excellent way for top tier skaters to work out the kinks in their routines, costumes, makeup, whatever before their respecive Nats and Worlds if they make it. So for me, it serves a purpose.
