I love Tara L in many ways, but really have to agree with the poster above, her commentating just left me wanting to mute the volume. I really prefer set up and postmortem, with commentators maybe calling elements and the occasional gasp or gush for something unexpected, unusual or just brilliant.
Do you know who commentated for the men?
Was that Michael Weiss's daughter singing? She looks all grown up. How old are his kids now?
Im guessing 16 by the mini and heels? I remember him wearing his annie mae shirt at competitions. Michael was a very young father-like Katia was a mother. Most skated thru the 90's to reap the money so lots of older skaters have little ones. nancy had her son right away and then a big gap and two more-glad she got her girl.
I missed most of the skating today. Just tuned in in time for Katia. Liza looks a bit like Dakota Fanning, as well as looking very much like her father Ilia. Interesting that Katia, one of the world's most beautiful women, has two daughters who each are the spitting image of their respective fathers. (Of course both Sergei and Ilia were/are handsome, so the kids look wonderful.)
Todd Eldredge just skated. Well, Iluvtodd, I see why you'll never ever change your screen name. This guy is a doll. Look at the way he skates with the baby and high-fives his older son. He wasn't the top gun on my list of favorite skaters, but if I ever had the chance to meet five skaters of my choice, he'd definitely be one of them. He just radiates decency and warmth.
And there's Paul Wylie sitting there! Another wonderful guy, as far as I can tell. (And if I met him, I'd probably faint or drift off the ground or something--him and Kurt.) I hope I haven't missed all his skating, or that I can find the show on YouTube.
Chris, I agree that it's good to express your thanks for the sponsor. Fortunately I love applesauce, and Musselman makes an unsweetened variety. I used to get it for Mom, and she loved it.
Is Jewel's husband there? I love Ty Murray. One of the people I encountered on Dancing with the Stars and came to admire. He was a hard worker and a gentleman. I know that he and Jewel recently had their first child. This entitles them to be on the family show! Though I don't think either of them should have to skate.

Paul has 4 kids now?! They're so cute as sharks! (though this whole show is pretty cheesey... my parents are eating it up, though...)
And now here's Katia. Holy hat, that costume is sheer.
I have to agree...I really liked Lipinski at first...but she has since totally changed...almost bordering on annoying now at TEB. Come on TL, go back to your roots!
