    Pairs' Short Program

    Starts at 7pm Pacific time.

    This link has been working so far:
    http://www.parom.tv/sport2

    Hoping they'll broadcast it. Maybe, maybe not.

    I'll be doing a live play by play at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...t-program.html for anyone without a feed. All three American teams are in the first group with the Zhangs.

    Hao (male) Zhang had a red streak in his hair. Oddly daring.

    Mary Beth Marley looks VERY young skating alongside John.

    The announcer stuttered announcing John Coughlin's fun facts, which made me laugh ("John Coughlin enjoys... [i]pause...[/url] speedwalking and Sudoku!")

    Denney/Coughlin: LOVELY triple twist. Gorgeous. Atrocious music cut. Timing issues on SBS triples but landed. Long, drawn out step sequence but not horrible or army flaily. Another bad cut. Lift with mediocre position. How are they sucking the life out of this music with these cuts. Throw triple that was off in the air, but landed. Seriously, this music cut is terrible. Nice death spiral. Whatever pairs spin.

    This is a textbook case of a team being less than the sum of their parts, but they were clean and should score well. Both are happy. But whoever cut this music together should be spoken to severely.

    Oh my. I love this couple. Just the way they skated out, the way they look at each other, the joy they project... and then there's the on-the-edge quality, the way she saved that throw, how close she was to the ice in the death spiral, the height of the twist... wow. I love them!

    ETA: I forgot to mention: Caydee's new elegance. Honestly, with that and her daredevil quality, she could be the successor to Xue Shen. No higher praise exists!

    Going in KnC, John mentions she might have touched her head on the ice during the death spiral. Showed a replay of that triple twist, and it really was a beauty.

    Seriously? The elegance seems so fake to me, though I'll agree with you about the daredevil quality.

    V/B were worse element for element, but I prefered their program and pairness. They also had a music cut that wasn't horrible.

    The weird half-smiles D/C had the whole program were really awkward to me...almost creepy.
