    To all Technical Panelists: Everyone on the same page and consistency with your UR and DG calls.

    To all Judges: Eyeglasses for those of you with crummy vision, and new Spines installed for those who can't mark PCS components separately and without reputation or beauty bonuses.

    I sort of agree but the problem is PCS are in the eye of the beholder just as GOE's are in the eye of the beholder. People pick on Chan and Mao but then a good argument can be made Hanyu has been gifted (yes, there will be people furious but a good argument can be made). We have seen Carolina missing almost everything and get held up and when she flops she really flops.

    My Christmas wish is that Evan Lysacek makes a full and speedy recovery from surgery.

    My wish (besides several skaters in my stocking) is for fair judging that is not anonymous. Hey, I can dream and believe in Santa, can't I????

    *Fernandez has a good second half of the season
    *Alex and Maia defend their spot as the #2 USA team, and improve on their 8th place finish at Worlds
    *Abbott puts together two clean programs
    *Meryl and Charlie do well at GPF, Nats, 4CC, and Worlds

    For the ISU to institute a spot trading policy, so that Canada can get some more dance spots (I want Osmond to do well, but do we really need a second ladies spot?). The politicking would be insane.
    Yes, please, more canadian and USA ice dancers at the WCh, more single skaters from Japan at WCh and more pairs from Russia

    Awww! You won't get them at Christmas time ...unless you don't mind delayed Christmas gifts.

    I wish Patrick Chan to get a technical caoch. But I know I won't get this gift in time for Christmas, either.

    - Dai to fire Morozov and get back on track.

    - Ross Miner on the World Team if the US seriously want 3 spots.

    - Ashley and Mirai on the World team if the US seriously want 3 spots.

    - D/W to win Gold at Worlds

    - Joubert to win Europeans

    -C/L to win Europeans and take Bronze at Worlds

    Santa this is my wish list for now!

    - that the rest of the season is injury-free
    - good come-backs for all those who are coming back (Weir, Lysacek, Kim, Costner, Plushenko, ...)
    - decent showings for the first-timers at Worlds
    - Elene skates both SP and FP well
    - Suzuki gets the marks she deserves
    - NO anonymous judging
    - NO reputation scores

    So many of my wishes have already been expressed--such as Dick and Peggy calling Nationals one more time. But here are some others:

    -Mirai makes the Worlds team and skates well
    -The US ladies get three spots for 2014
    -Jeremy finally skates well at Worlds (and makes the team)
    -Patrick Chan skates his long program without mistakes at Worlds--I think it would be another one to remember in 20 years
    -The judging system is changed to make the second mark more like the second mark in 6.0--based on the how the skaters rank at the competition and not so many categories
    -No anonymous judging
    -Michelle comes back somewhere--Yu Na's show, anywhere--and skates to music that would be appropriate for a competition

    I'd like to see some experienced skaters finally pull themselves together at Worlds and get a surprise medal with 2 clean programs. I'm mainly thinking of Jeremy and Kiira.

    Great topic

    All I want for Christmas is:
    -Full recoveries and fabulous skates at Nationals for Alissa and Evan
    -Shibs back on the World podium
    -An Ashley, Alissa, Mirai Nationals podium (in any order)
    -Clean programs from everyone for the rest of the season
    -Fernandez on the Worlds podium

    Yes yes yes to the second. Partial yes to the first - I don't want a single second mark, but I would like to see fewer components and to have them made clearer. And while a skater can make technical mistakes and still be good on the components, there should be some relation between a messy skate and the PCS.

    I think you should have added something for the Braves too
