    Oh no, he took a tumble on the un-nice ice of Nice. (I just realized we're not in Paris.)

    Their costumes are miles better than yesterday, but the low waist on her dress makes her look thicker around the middle and she doesn't need that.

    I don't like the way her back bounces on the ice when they're going into that cantilever (?) position where they're both leaning all the way back. First, it's too obvious, and second, Ouch.

    FIRST WARMUP GROUP
    Sara Hurtado & Adria Diaz ESP
    SP Eighth place 45.71
    FD Tristan and Isolde by Maxime Rodriguez
    That's an odd costume. She has a sequinned kippah on, and brown bloomers under a skirt??? Nope it's a two toned layered brown skirt that sometimes looks like she has bloomers. And a teal blue sash belt.
    And a blue vee on the top of the costume.
    Angsty posing
    She does a camel spin he catches her
    they skate off ina neat cartwheel lift and she sommersaults over his shoulder
    step sequence
    Nice pair spin. Decent rotational speed
    She goes down he sits on her knees, they both lean back. Wild!
    She stands on his foot in a biellman
    Rotational lift.
    He falls in the 1st twizzle set (leg out) He tripped over the toepick It's an ambitious set of twizzle positions they planned...a little too hard for them.
    Steps
    Another lift to end.
    There was some interesting stuff in that lift.

    C/L technically spot on, but to me that program was boring. Maybe because I really dislike la strada.

    I'm having a little trouble coming up with a narrative that accounts for a smiling mummy who looks like a WWI bombing victim. This program blows. Tell me there's no home field advantage.

    Very awkward moment at the end - was there a slip?
