    I'm going to be watching (if there's a stream).

    It's quite weird that the pairs events seem to be running so far off the schedule of the other events?

    Livestreams willing, so will I. And I agree - though I'm a bit relieved, actually. Sometimes so much skating all at once can get terribly tiring - I mean, physically tiring, not: this is too much, I'm bored nao.

    Yeah, I have to admit I haven't been following the live streams as much as I did last year or the year before (except for this event). I've been watching the CBC tv broadcasts with fewer skaters.

    I'm sticking around to watch pairs, since I couldn't keep awake to watch the other events live.

    Doesn't strike me as that unusual to have one event left on the last day, but I'm wondering why it's pairs, of all things. Japan doesn't have a strong pair here, and it isn't exactly a top-class field either, so it's not like there's an anticipation factor.

    I THINK Davis/Ladwig had a nice program. I fell asleep during it and woke up for the marks. I hate the time of this lol.

    Okay, again I don't make it to the livestream until most of the way through Scimeca/Knierim. Crud.

    But from what I did see, wow, hard to believe they've been together so short a time.

    They certainly seemed happy with the score - it's nice when the skaters themselves are satisfied.

    ETA Clarification: Davis/Ladwig, I meant.

    They seem to be mismatched. The lack of ability to land jumps will doom them from the get go.

    I assume that pairs is the least popular event, and there is no Japanese entry. so people can leave fit het choose to skip it without missing out one of the other three. quite considerate IMO, especially for out of town audience.

    iove the last US pair.

    BTw, why so many people ware masks?
