    Got home from work abit too late, just saw the tail end of all the Michigan crew. Judging from the score the Shibs and DW must have been spectacular. I got to see Wingle/McKiernan (sp?), respectable job, and Lynn k/logan g.s., I fell in love with their SD all over again, great skate.

    Thanks ^. I saw the scores and was screaming "I can't believe I missed this" (of course, i was at work). Anyway...can't wait to hear live reports (or live computer watching ones too). I haven't seen Lynn K/Logan...but I'll definitely look for them.

    Just to give you an interesting perspective, here are the comparative SD scores of the top 5 European championship that just completed and the US top 5 finishers:

    Europeans:
    1 Nathalie PECHALAT / Fabian BOURZAT
    FRA 66.91 34.13 32.78
    2 Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV
    RUS 65.46 34.07 31.39
    3 Sinead KERR / John KERR
    GBR 62.87 32.00 30.87
    4 Elena ILINYKH / Nikita KATSALAPOV
    RUS 60.93 31.79 29.14
    5 Ekaterina RIAZANOVA / Ilia TKACHENKO
    RUS 60.91 32.50 28.41;

    US:
    1. Meryl Davis/Charlie White 76.04

    2. Maia Shibutani/Alex Shibutani 70.47

    3. Madison Chock/Greg Zuerlein 61.74

    4. Lynn Kriengkrairut/Logan Giulietti-Schmitt 58.59

    5. Madison Hubbell/Keiffer Hubbell 57.91

    I know you can't compare scores across different competitions. Still US teams come out pretty well, don't you think?

    Yes...this is impressive. I really can't wait to watch the top 4-5 from the short dance. I actually haven't had the opportunity to watch the Shibs even once this season, so I really can't wait to see their SD from today. So glad to hear about the standing O too. I expected Davis and White to be fabulous, but it's great to hear they actually were.

    thanks for the comparisons...and commentary.

    Nationals scores are always inflated. The performances were definitely good today, but these scores are nothing more than Nationals scores, and therefore not used in determining Seasons Bests and Personal Bests.

    You cant compare National scores. Anyone who thinks the Shibutanis would outscore Pechalat & Bourzat at Worlds for example is on crack.

    Sorry i couln't find the portocol yet, but this should give you some ideas.

    It was an excellent competition.
    Both the Shibs (10th) & C/Z (8th) skated on the 2nd group. The Shibs skated the best SD for this season. They were poised, clean, and received the first standing ovation of the competition. It was staggering in that they received level 4s on all the elements. Just to give you a perspective, their total score, 70.47 were approximately 2 points higher than the highest SD score D/W received during this season!

    Of course D/W rose to the occasion and ended up with approx. 6 points higher than the Shibs. They also received the second standing ovasion of the afternoon.

    The other couple I was looking forward to, and was impressed with, was K/G-S (the 4th place finish). They were very expressive and I loved their lift and choreo.

    C/Z were ok but I did not expect 9 points difference between them and the Shibs. Should be the interesting FD.
