    Yeah, that's where I'm clicking. Not working, at all. It could be my internet connection - at school, streaming things tends to be incredibly annoyingly slow or not work-y.

    Morgan's program has very nice choreography. Is there someone else skating to this music this season?

    Czisny has a style that is liked by a LOT of people. She is really friendly to her fans, as I've found out from experience. She is a sentimental favorite.

    Nice lovely Tango by Morgan Bell! EXQUISITE opening spread eagle into 2A! with hyperextended knees reminiscent of Sarah Hughes & ballerinas. Followed up by an nice solid 3T/2T, then an UR 3S. Good job, lots of oomph, loved the dress & rose in her hair!

    Probably since about 2005 is when she really captured attention - but that was six years ago!!

    She really is the only of the old guard left, isn't she? Sasha, Kimmie, Emily, Bebe. All those girls we were so used to seeing are gone.

    Too much blush, though. Just saying.

    I think the fact that she has struggled so much and has never given up and is continuing to improve with age is what is really endearing people to her. To go from (controversially) winning the National title and finishing 11th at Worlds to finishing 10th at the US Olympic trials to now being the reigning GPF Champion is just incredible! Most skaters who have experienced the crushing lows she has would have long given up by now. The fact that Alissa keeps on fighting and improving is highly admirable.

    It's her pre-COP style. I think she kinda manages to mask the point-getting that you see with a lot of the other ladies. I'd say she may fool some into thinking that she's skating an exhibition program and trying to exude a sense of elegance and subtle beauty.

    That's right. Wow. She's lasted a really long time. And to think that now, rather than then, is when she chose to really make her mark.

    Yes, she does.

    I missed a bunch, but Mussademba (sp?) just skated - i think she fell, but her program (the part I saw) was quite lovely; she has nice positions and a kind of elegance. Her dress is also quite pretty (sort of a light blue or sea green with lot's of sparkly stuff).

    Ah, Kristine Musademba is a fairy, otherworldly creature, first time all night I'm almost in tears. OMG, she really feels her music, which was just accentuated by the exquisite divine phenomenal opening running 3-turns into 3R, same as the 2A, and she did another jump I can't recall. I honest to God was just too caught up in the performance. Definitely one to watch, I'm in misty eyed tears. OMG, EXQUISITE, everything!!!!!!

    Good performance from the Musademba girl, too bad about the fall.

    Well.... I don't think it was a choice. I think she had a good shot at making that 2006 Olympic team and really wanted it. It was one of her many disappointments.
