    Do I need some sort of plug-in to make it work? (Not that it should matter mcuh because I thought I was up to date with everything.)

    You are right, she could crumble in the long, but a strong SP is a worthy accomplishment of its own. Also, I am not sure how much of a cushion she has over some of the skaters coming up. If Wagner and Flatt score significantly lower, then she could probably afford a mistake or two in the LP and still finish in the top three or four.

    Considering her Grad Prix results, I'm not willing to take the risk. (Of course, for several years even our best have faltered so who can say which lady will be able to do her best @ worlds)

    That's a nice obvervation Nadine. I guess Alissa's been around the longest and she's always a sentimental favorite, not to mention a gorgeous skater. Course, she's also the GPF champion so...

    I suspect Mirai's following will grow. Figure skating is definitely a sport where you have to warm up to the skaters.

    Oh poor Raina Narita? Popped/opened up on both her opening 3T and later on her 2A, also fell on her 3L. Most likely last place, poor girl. :(

    Nice style though, lovely dress reminiscent of Oksana Baiul's.

    she's basically deadlocked with the top skaters. It's gonna be a dogfight in the LP. Flatt and Wagner better bring it

    Poor Khazova blew it too, skating with a hurt back.

    There is a special Mixed Zone LIVE! link under the "Feature Video" section on the video page. But the video feed that pops up isn't working for me right now.

    It'll be really interesting to see how Wagner and Flatt stack up.
    Agnes has better spins than Rachael and maybe better presence, and she just nailed her jumps, which is Flatt's strong suit so..... I don't know. Flatt has a new program. I'll be interested in seeing her PCS.

    If Ashley does a 3-3 will it be enough to overtake Mirai and Alissa? It wasn't enough for Agnes. I wonder what Agnes' GOE on her jumps were. They looked very good.

    Tatyana Khazova has a unique 1920's style going on that I like. Too bad about the fall on the opening UR 3R, popped 2A, nice 2L/2T. Loved the spin at the very end with the skate to the head.

    Resembles Agnes Z. and Alexe G. (:^D

    Alissa's been around for a while, since 2002 on the senior level at Nationals. This is her 10th Senior Nationals! She really is the woman of these championships! We've literally watched her grow up and experienced all the rollercoaster exhilarating highs and crushing lows on the ice with her. All of her main challengers in this event started their senior National careers in 2008 or later.

    Even though she has been competing that long, how long did she really capture the attention of the audience and the fans? The first time I started paying attention to her was after her surprise GP wins in 2005. At the nationals before that, have people been watching her and rooting for her?
