    Pff, finally a decent skater. Some class on the ice. Really, between the messes that Amodio and Brezina are, and the first 4 skaters here, who all happened to be from Europe and decided to represent that by wearing trashy awful costumes, using horrible music cuts and weird faux-sexy gesturing - I am thinking about pretending to be Asian.

    she's a judge on Battle with the Blades in Canada, and I think the shows are on Sunday and Monday.

    and Terry is a color commentator, not an expert commentator. She's confirming her opinion with the expert, not with some guy who's basically a moderator and random fact giver.

    Nice combo from Caroline. I have to say I like those cuffs on Victoria's costume. Alissa's costume is gorgeous. Very sophisticated.

    Woah, Alissa just did a 3loop+2toe+2loop in warm-up and made it look easy. I don't believe I've ever seen that jump combo from her before.

    It's still weird. She isn't asking for confirmation, just stating some fact or opinion. The presence of "fact giver" Terry Gannon is the only thing that makes the NBC/Universal commentary bearable, IMO,

    Didn't she do it last year at the GPF? She did some kind of three jump combo.

    If they didn't look so much alike, I'd say either Vika or Joshi was adopted, because Vika's skating is so much smoother. Beautiful edges, control and stroking, higher jumps too when she lands them.

    I think we've had this discussion before. Terry is not the color commentator. He is the announcer (play by play or otherwise). "Color" commentators and "expert" commentators are the specialists in whatever field. In football it is the former player. In politics it is the former politician. In music it is the musician. In skating it is the skater.

    Does Tracy Wilson know Terry Gannon is there? She keeps addressing Scott only. What happened to Sandra, by the way (not that I'm complaining about her absence)?
    Actually last night she and Terry had a great conversation about dance. Maybe, since she and Scott are the expert/color commentators, they are sort of teamed together while Terry is keeping track of the basics of the competition.

    that's what I mean by confirmation. Tracy is not the "expert" in singles skating. she's commentated it a lot through the years but she has always deferred to her singles or pairs experienced co-commentator.

    I don't like Tracy's style, anyway, because it is odd and annoying... Terry went to school for this stuff, so he's going to sound normal compared to any "expert" he's with. But even he sounds annoyed at being "ignored"
