    GREAT JOB, KEEGAN, GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!

    What I love about Keegan is his powerfulness and quickness, light on his feet, one of the fastest skaters out there, and his jumps are powerful. No quad, but he saved the 3L/3T combo. and his 3A was amongst the best in the world as well.

    ps: Johnny comments are really starting to crack me up, especially that opening salvo "for those not paying attention, he just shot an arrow".

I am kind of enjoying getting commentary & am debating whether I would enjoy not being able to see the skater so close as we get to on TV and without being able to read the forum & hear commentary.

    What do you all recommend??
    When is it ever going to be closer than 2.5 hours away? Plus, it's one of those things you should see live at least once. TV takes away much of the speed and flow of the skaters. Seeing the ice coverage of the best skaters is impressive.

    I knew it was going to be close between my two favorites, and I'm not surprised they went with the more seasoned & experienced Keegan Messing. This is after all his 3rd appearance at Nationals, whereas Max is brand new to the scene, and still has to earn his wings.

    also, Keegan is the best spinner in the group imho, always has been, and that works to his favor over Max.

    Um...... polka dot skirts were the 50's and swing was late 30's and 40's? I think, or is Johnny right?

    lol another salvo from Johnny in reference to Jason Brown ~ "I know people are excited to see that ponytail do some damage, I know I am".

    I know what you mean, Keegan commits and attacks.
    and see Nadine, sometime color commentary is great!

    I like Jason Brown, nice performance, but this is not ice dance, this is mens figure skating, and you need to man up and at least do a 3A. And if you want to be amongst the very best in the world, if not thee best, you need a quad. Jmho.

    I can tell Johnny is in love, and Tonia's give him his due, but for me, it's okay.

    ps: Johnny, Scott Hamilton also said the same exact quote in reference to Oksana Baiul (i.e. "she cannot hit an ugly position).

    The overall quality of his skating is so impressive. Can't lie, he's my favorite. I would luurve to see him on the podium (after Jeremy and Adam).

    Jason's working on a 3a...but he's currently got an ankle injury and is not doing it this week

    also, other skaters who "cannot hit an ugly position" - Adam Rippon and Sasha Cohen

    OMG - dazzling performance by Jeremy!!! Total perfection. And now I will say Johnny almost spoiled it by talking all the way through it. That was just wrong. Tania too. Seriously, they were undermining him. We're here for Jeremy, not you guys!!!

    Johnny doesn't seem to get that the "footwarmers" are an allusion to tap dancing, which Jeremy does in the program as well.
