    Dinh qualified for Sunday's Final but withdrew. (ETA: I meant Saturday's Final.)

    Here's Gracie Gold's SP to "Hernando's Hideaway" - she scored 62.69 in Group B and landed 3F+3T, Rippon 3Lz & 2A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IAHHpRcsuI

    Why is this called Hernando's Hideaway? This is actually La Cumparsita.

    Great jumps, this girl is a monster.

    No it isn't, it's Hernando's Hideaway.

    La Cumparsita is a completely different tune.

    Only in the sense that they're both stereotypical tangos.

    Wow, that rippon lutz is bananas!
    Does anyone know if she got an edge call on that flip?- looked pretty close in the video.

    Yes, monster, but not a perfect female skating.

    Very good jumps.
    But she still needs a good choreographer and somebody who will tell her "You MUST NOT touch your panties on ice!"

    She is one of my loved skaters and I feel that it's not good, if her really great capabilities are limited by poor choreography.

    Never mind, I was wrong.

    There are a lot of skaters who pull the pants on their dress down when they go to their start position. It becomes a habit like putting your right skate on first. I do agree it IS distracting, though!

    It's part of the presentation process. You adjust your pants, tighten your ponytail, and then take your start position. Skating 101!

    It depends on the skater and the hairdo! LOL! Some skaters' pants fit a little better than others on their dresses (I am talking about you, Denise Bielman who wore almost the equivalent of a thong and you, Carolina Kostner, who had a bad wedgie one year) so they don't have to tug on them.

    Moore-Towers/Moscovitch's long program. Kinda boring, but she's improved a lot in terms of line, stretch and positions.

    I don't know..I don't think it's boring ( I'm imagining it with more miles on it ) There are some very nice transitions and choreographic details..and it's not version of Bohemian rhapsody that we've heard a lot of. ( I was afraid I would be bored when I first learned their music choice )
