    Protocals:

    S/S -- They got docked pretty badly for the 2T/3T, but otherwise lots of +GOE across the board.
    M-T/D -- Negative GOE on the 3S, as expected, but otherwise solid GOE (a few judges did give -GOE on the twist, which I could understand)
    Z-Z -- Wow, 7.8 on the three jump combo. But negative GOE on the 2S and the combo spin (agreed, very out of sync) and also the 3S throw.
    D/C-- negative GOE on the 2A-1A sequqnce (expected) but positive GOE elsewhere except for a single -1 for their lutz throw. Despite the ugliness of the lefts, the judge seem to like them -- there's a few +3s on that last one...
    B/L - got a UR on the 2A sequence, also negative GOE on the 3T and the 3LO throw....
    V/B -- neagtive GOE on the 3T-1T and 3S throw.
    H/W -- lots of negative GOE and not much + Goe on other elements
    M/B -- Well lots of -GOE sadly. =( but got some positive +GOE on their other elements.

    Enjoyable competion on the whole. Glad for S/S they deserved the win, bit disappointed with the Zhangs not as good as I expected. Impressed with the Canadians, they deserved their 3rd place finish. Dissapointed for B/L, I really like their style but they had to many small mistakes. I don't see them making the grand prix final with a 5th place finish here. Enjoyed D/C. Very pleasant programme from V/B once the music was sorted.

    Is anyone watching on universal sports. I just now ordered the channel, finally on directv, but it's got black at the top and bottom, so the picture is narrow and not a good quality at all. Is this the way Universal sports broadcasts?

    Yes, sadly they do not broadcast in HD ; the picture quality is very bad/blurry, but at least it's something. During commercials, the picture regularly blacks out or shows temperatures/5 day weather outlook for the viewing area.

    HHmm.....why would some have full screen and clear and others not? Could it be the difference between a cable provider vs. satelite?

    I have directTV. so I have no clue.

    that being said I mispoke. I do have the black lines, apparently it's shot for some form of widescreen. It's not for high def TVs, I know that, but on a regular (older) TV it looks just fine. as far as getting weather instead of the event/program I've never had that issue.

    Wow. Ingo Steuer is brilliant, and full credit to Aliona and Robin for being able to handle such diverse concepts and difficult choreography and elements. Just incredible. And people say CoP hurt pairs the most? I defy anyone to watch S/S's programs, this one especially, and argue that you can't put together an amazing and high scoring pairs program.

    (Great costumes, too!)

    Yeah, watching Universal Sports on an HD TV is not great... But it's better than nothing. I wish we could at least get the Ladies LP on NBC, but oh well.

    one more reason I'm in no hurry to get an HD tv... my reg. def. tv does just fine. I really don't need to see the individual nose hairs a girl has while watching them in theri layback.

    I think D/C getting higher PCS than B/L is the biggest farce of Skate America.

    Imagine pairs without Ingo, Aliona and Robin.
