    Exactly. I love her SP.

    What's with all the tangos tonight?! They're all starting to sound the same.

    I don't think Wanger has a 3Lz planned in the SP, it's a 3Lo her solo jump.

    One thing I wished Mirai would do. Haven't seen her perform the heck out of anything since Worlds in 2010 for the SP. Maybe her Witches of eastwick? Mirai needs to channel her spunk again. But congrats on her achievement. Seems like the coach change was extremely beneficial. That spartacus program was boring.

    Ah well, it's one bad SP at nats. But it would certainly do her a lot of a good if she nailed her FS. If she nails it and moves up in the standings I'm certain that people will still be talking about her as one to watch out for next year.

    Yes.....I'm hoping she does a better FS as well. She can move up if she does well, she's only five points behind Courtney Hicks in the No. 2 spot.

    We'll have to see what the judges think, really...but whatever crowd is present will love her, and even with a 1.00 deduction, she shouldn't have any problem clearing the 70 mark.

    Also, I already have the nagging suspicion that a clean or semi-clean Gold on Saturday will end up on the podium. The judges really tried to save her with that 54.08.

    O.K., you got me. My concern is though given Mirai skated so early, and most likely got low-balled in terms of her PCS as a result of the skating order - would it be fair knowing this unfortunate fact of life in skating?

    I like how Tonia said Caroline was just "a little bit" short on the 2nd loop [URL="http://i47.tinypic.com/2q86bko.jpg"]as the slo-mo clearly [/URL]showed the underrotations.
    In her opening pose, Mirai had that Kwan "I -mean -business" look. Wonderful skate.

    You're right--I was thinking of her 3F-2T-2T. My bad.

    Yeah it is weird, Mirai's exhibitions have been better performed than her competition programs these past years. I prefer her exhibition this year for example than her competition programs.

    Mirai can't seem to do her jumps and skate with freedom at the same time it seems. She looks like she's checking off the elements and it hurts her performance.

    Mirai was excellent tonight. Best SP I've ever seen her skate. And that includes the one from the 2010 Worlds.
