    This Chinese pair's death spiral has to be about one of the ugliest I've ever seen. Seriously, her back does not arch, she's far away from the ice, and those bulky legs & unpointed toes are the worst.

    All skaters really need to work on their leg line and toe point.

    I consider these last 5 or so years the lost years in pairs skating, really sad, and pathetic.

    I like Dong and Wu. They elevated the comp with their elegance. It's a nice program with gentle, enveloping music. Love their costumes.

    Compared to Stolbova, Dong is slim.

    Preferred the Russians yesterday. The music seemed to big for them and not the best cut. He seemed to stuggle a bit in the lifts. I still like them a lot though.

    Impressed by the French, much better than I expected. The Chinese great technically but pretty poor otherwise, scored higher than the French in PCS, not sure I would agree.

    Their program doesn't even try to work with the music. Ph. Glass is challenging but come on.

    Really whacked performance by the Canadians, almost stopped watching, but them they came back a tad stronger at the end (still their pair spin at the very end travelled all over the place).

    Lol, and I find it funny that the female is in charge in this pair couple, but then again she is older and has more experience, so I really should not find it amusing to see her call out during their sbs spins.

    Umm, I'm talking about *both* of their leg lines, ugly is ugly is ugly, period.

    Dube and Wolfe's music is
    Sense of Doubt from "Heroes" ; Neuköln from "Heroes"; VS Schneider from "Heroes" by Philip Glass

    and between them and it, I dozed off once in the middle of the program

    Seems like everything is taking sooooooooooooo long now. *insert sleep emoticon, lol*

    Seriously, funny my computer doesn't crash during the pairs (which I wouldn't mind at all), but does during the mens (which I do mind). Go figure....

    Amanda & Mark had amazing lifts, including a great (noncounting) dance lift.

    Too bad about the fall on the 2A.
