    I've added to my post. I personally don't care enough about beauty points. I'm actually one of the posters who hasn't argued about beauty points. Congrats to all the medalist.

    Love that the US came to Russia and kicked the Russian girls butts. All this talk about the Russian ladies dominating in Sochi might not happen after all.

    That's because you don't seem to know what irony is, nor do you seem to understand the intentional mirroring of my comment with another poster's. "Parody" would be a more accurate description, with the accompanying invitation to call it a joke and for respondents to "lighten up". Pretty basic stuff, if you ask me.

    I agree about the "beauty points" and think Kiira won here on more grounds than that, so good for her. Otherwise, this ladies' event was a bit of a snoozefest for me.

    Just wanted to say congrats to the 3 medalist. I'm glad Gold got her first senior gp medal. Honestly at this stage whoever ended up on the podium was fine by me.
    Gracie and Kiira are very different types of beautiful, IMO. Gracie has warmer features (I preferred her brunette-ish hair) whereas Kiira is beautiful in the traditional Scandinavian way--very pale and porcelain-looking.

    Pardon me for failing to hear the joke through however many thousands of miles of Internet cable, and for neglecting to conduct rhetorical analysis on a post on a figure skating forum. Perhaps you can make it a bit clearer next time, or refrain from such inappropriate and easily misunderstood comments altogether. I don't think that I need to define irony since you seem to have a good grasp on its definition.

    I see Gracie passing up Kira pretty quickly as her skating becomes more mature.

    Gracie's PCS almost approached Kiira's is just wrong wrong wrong.
    It's like a junior skating with a lady. No comparison. Crazy how Kiira's PCS didn't get the same bump Gracie did from SP to LP.
    She barely got over 60.

    It's not difficult when one follows the discussion before barging in without context, and one would expect that when trying to apply a rhetorical term to someone's comment, you do the appropriate analysis. But, you are pardoned and next time I will make the extra effort to simplify and cross-reference to accommodate your comprehension abilities.

    What a charming post. You do realize that the cold war is over, right? And that ladies is traditionally not Russia's strongest discipline? I think it's clear that the Russian skaters (please don't call them "girls") were not at their best, so you can argue that they kicked their own butts, so to speak. And last I checked, the only skater in Moscow who qualified for the GPF is not an American. Gold and Zawadzki have a lot of promise, but they also have a ways to go. And even the obviously talented Ashley Wagner has yet to medal at Worlds.

    I love that a mature, elegant Kiira Korpi came to Moscow and showed the teenagers who it's done. Perhaps with more experience, some of the younger skaters in the CoR field can deliver the sort of performances she does.

    Ashley Wagner will win GPF, and World Gold medal. You don't need to worry about this.

    I think you will find that both Tuk and Julia will give a good account of themselves in the coming GP events.

    Ashley is good, but she has a tendency to make mistakes in the SP which leaves her with too much to do in the FS against the very best skaters. Worlds 2012 was a prime example of that.

    By the way, as your into forecasts and predictions, your name wouldn't happen to be Dick Morris would it?

    Can you also tell me who will win the next Superbowl and what the winning numbers in the lottery might be?

    Ashley Wagner is a wonderful skater, but ice is slippery and there are no guarantees.
