    Same here. Murakami was on fire.

Great job!
    I thought Ashley also had great command of the ice. Never had been a fan before, but she could just change my mind.

    Lol I'm sooo happy for Ashley I feel like crying & singing & dancing with joy and wild abandon!

    Seriously, I've always said I felt she should've won 2008 Nationals (the best Nationals ever for Ladies imho; everybody skated their best & Mirai won). I just love everything she does, she's got it all, spins, jumps, artistry, presentation, speed, total command & confidence now (her hands didn't shake once!).

    My favorite program of Ashley's though is the "Somewhere in Time" one by Rachmaninoff "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini"....ahhh....choreography, costume, everything just exquisite. If she ever reprises an old program I wish it to be this one.

    This makes up for the horrible dream I had this morning about G&S and Rockne getting into a plane crash (most likely due to my having watched "Final Destination" several nights ago).


    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AGNES & CAROLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wasn't making a promise. But that's how it usually works out, sometimes in a convoluted way. However, timing is tricky. We'll have to see how it plays out, whether they both get the results of their determined effort and wishes this year.

    Skate fans are just as prone to prejudging skaters based on their past performances. Ashley was great. Better than ever. I'd still have given it to Kanako, but I'm not a trained judge and I'm not there in person.

    No, I was referring to hometown (ish) girl skating, large enthusiastic audience response, subconsciously influencing judges to mark higher (e.g. Alissa Czisny at Skate America 2011). Although perhaps home cooking is the incorrect term--home ice advantage is the right one, I think? That's what it's called in hockey, at least.

    I didn't care so much for Mao's performance today, with her arm movements somewhat unnatural and rushed at times. Really like Murakami. So glad she recovered from her medical conditions yesterday and was able to put on a great performance.

    I can't watch because I'm at work and have to finish a project.
    Thanks for the play by plays.

    What happens when you get nothing on Keyhole except message "Login timed out. Check your Network" ?

    Home advantage always helps with the marks.
