    This is why I haven't bothered to watch international pairs in ages, not even the Olympics, still haven't watched it, lol.

    I'm just going to go back to watching Nationals.
    The fix is in because my favorites didn't score high.

    T/T in top 3 , D/R and B/L in top 6
    but those margin of errors from no. 3 down can be shaken in the LP
    silver and bronze you never know

    When is it a requirement to stop posting when you don't like something? If someone slaps you, do you not say anything?

    Can't wait! I do know that they are still juniors -- and I am impressed and excited about their potential. I called them up-and-coming, knowing they are not seniors yet -- they are still up-and-coming and at this point look to be one of the more exciting pairs on the Russian landscape -- even though Deputat is Ukrainian. For that matter, Tatiana V and Aliona S are also Ukrainian. Still the Russians tend to get all the credit, I suppose when it comes to pairs.

    Interesting pairs event. It wasn't the best from S/S, with Robin's turn-out and Aliona's double-footed landing on the throw, however they are strong overall and got the job done. I definitely think Eric and Meg were fairly scored -- they do have difficult elements and they are a powerful team. They were flat-out amazing at Canadian Nats especially in their fp there. Great showing from the U.S. teams too. I didn't see V/T's sp skate -- what happened to cause the low mark?

    I really don't like watching B/L that much -- they are often quite boring due to their automoton-like quality (plus although Vera's lines are good, I don't like Yuri's).

    Seriously. But she also called Volosozhar an old lady, so take it with a grain of salt. Anyway, I am incredibly impressed S/S went for that throw triple axel and stood it up. She's had enough crashes on it this yr that could have easily discouraged them, but they really have GUTS. Love that.

    Impressive to see Pang/Tong doing well after taking time off.

    I am sad that I couldn't see Aljona and Robin. I am surprised about the placement of the Russian pairs.

    The problem is that Nadine is constantly viciously bashing skaters she doesn't like and she seems to hate the majority so she poisons any thread she posts in. Her comments about skaters looking "old" or being like robots are completely out of line.

    That's what I like to see in LP. Top 6, anyone can get onto podium or crash trying it. S/S will have no trouble breezing into their 4th title. Don't think P/T can catch up technically wise, but if S/S will attempt 3AThw again, you never know. Will they play safe or go for it again?? ^^

    My favorite part was their pair spin....fast, centered, perfect....but they only did a 2twist and I think only 2salchows? But their throw 3R jump was superb!
    Nope, they do all triples...It's a 3S and 3L but the 3S was out of synch :-(

    she called Julia Lipnitskaya a ferret
    don't know if it was meant as a compliment or an insult
    but I think its was cute

    P/T were quite good yes, not perfect, but not rusty-looking either. How did I not see that S/S landed a 3-axel, no matter the double-foot, they got it to stand up!! That's great. Hope they are even stronger and more spot-on perfect in the fp, which is just so wonderful in all aspects.

    K/S are pretty buried in the standings, but they could definitely rocket towards the top with their usual long program quality. It's not over yet for them.
