    skate figuring

    I have the same problem. They also accusing me of having 3 devices in household.
    And that's it. Can't see anything more.

    All in all an ugly competition, both aesthetically and in terms of skating.

    It's not Russian style. It's Morosov style. They are gross and lewd and a bit sad. I don't feel any joy watching them at all. Give me K&S any day, too.

    Seriously, does anyone know anything about B/L? Last year they seemed exquisite to me, despite errors, but this year... meh. I feel bad for them.

    I'm not crazy about D/R but it sounds like they had the best skate of the comp.

    Re: jet lag - you can get it with a coast-to-coast flight (which my husband is about to do), let alone a 6-hr time difference. It would affect different people differently. But I don't really know what would account for all the blah skates today.

    I think he pulled her shirt a little, that looosy part, while she was landing, that's why she fell. Will check the moment later again on youtube. But if my guess is right, they definitely have to change her costume.

    They are NOT portraying joy, so why would you expect joy??

    They might be grand prix medal contenders in a few years, but world champion? I don't think so. Not enough pedigree. Did not win anything important as a junior pair. The other young pair coached by Moskvina will get more mileage than this pair for Russia.

    You don't have to portray joy to pull pure joy out of the spectators.

    I don't think she's lost any weight recently... She's been kind of scary skinny, IMO, for years. She's starting to land her 3T more normally at least.

    I enjoyed Jessica & Eric and Amanda & Mark' programs, Amanda 's dress was beautiful. I am hoping that they can move up
    and medal here. They always seem to end up in 4th place. Tat & Max's SP is growing on me, I prefer their LP.
