    Wish I was there!

    Olson & Cowan did really well at Lake Placid. They were 2nd at Pacific Sectionals

    This was a good outing.

    The lift was creative, good twizzles, and I liked their timing.

    I wasn't crazy about the first rhumba sequence.

    heart drawing action in the KnC.

    53.44 into first

    Next group warming up
    Shibutanis are in the next group

    Cannuscio & Lorello

    Eastern Sectional champions
    6th last year in Greensboro

    This was much stronger than their Easterns performance.
    He reminds me of Maurizio Magaglio for sexiness--this was a very sexy performance through the rhumba section-and fun & bright during tequila. I liked it better than Jordan & Cowan, particularly the deep knees in circular step.

    Twizzles a little trouble.
    50.03, and Kim Does Not Like their score.
    Neither do I.

    Shibutanis up

    They are not Skipping to the Bip anymore. There's a cover of The Girl From Ipanema involved.

    Purple dress on Maia

    Definite changes in the program as well as the music

    3 sets very fast twizzles, good rotational speed and unison, but not as much travel down the ice as I would like.

    They look very very happy.

    72.61

    :wow:

    nice expression (both face & body) from Charlotte
    nice feet on the rotational lift by Dean

    Both Igor and Marina in the KnC! Wow she got back from Sheffield fast

    52.55 into 3rd

    Samuelson & Todd Gilles.
    In mild mourning purple, gray & black.

    Their relative newness shows

    The lift wasn't completely smooth, I thought.
    Twizzles had some roughness too

    Music better than at sectionals though. (less James Bondy stuff)

    Todd's in better shape than at CoC for sure.

    53.24

    Chock & Bates
    Maddy in red, Evan in black

    I can't love

    Kim says chemistry, ball room feel

    Maddy has great facial expression!!

    I love their lift!! Kim likes it too.

    twizzles kinda overly careful but OK

    Maddy's edges not as good as Evan's in the circular step.

    They got flowers in the KnC! long time since I've seen that.

    Score: 55.49. Narrowly into 2nd place through 9 couples.

    End of group number 2

    It is not every skater that can skate in front of a sign with their name on it, whether they are related or not.

    There is also a peanut butter sign, too, on the boards.

    Cool.

    Now they just need a bread ad.

    They are about to do an ice resurfacing. And give out an award.

    It looks like a pretty decent crowd so much for dance not being a draw.

    Yeah I am watching on icenetwork. I didn't live comment on some of teams in Warm-Up Group 2 because I was away from my laptop, but I was still watching and I filled in some general thoughts after the fact.

    So if you go to icenetwork's main site, the 2nd video under "LIVE" says "backstage at US Champs". Click on it and you'll get sporadic interviews with skaters. It is only live when the skaters are in the mixed zone after their performance.
