Back to Ashely, I wish Sandra and Scott had said more nice things about Ashley's actual skating and not just about her tough attitude. They could have commented on how finished and refined her skating looks this year. And her ice presence which I find far and above the other ladies. I think Ashley is still battling her rep and as being in the middle of the pack.
So, how many skaters do we get to see on NBC tonight? Looks to me like they must have chacked at least 4 ladies due to showing some of the short programs. And those four skaters weren't available live on IceNetwork either. I wanted to see Caroline Zhang, Ashley Cain, and Kiri Baga.
Okay, it looks like they chacked 3 skaters and are starting with Angela Wang.
No, wait a minute, was it just Kiri they chacked. Or are they gonna go from Angela direct to live with Hannah Miller?

I guess I'm not the only one getting annoyed by Scott H. Just wish that he would tone down little bit with his antics when commentating. He comes across as a fan screaming with a microphone on his big mouth.
Peter was another one too. You can even see his saliva from talking too much sometime.
3Lz+2T - stepout
3S - hard fall, ouch, flat on her stomach!
Another solid free skate - she needs to overcome her SP woes, if she wants to contend. But this will likely pull her up some...
Angela Wang looks kind of like Caroline :D
Angela Wang...lovely skater, but it became a bit slow and labored toward the end.
Here's to hoping Caroline does well! She's worked too hard to be disappointed!
I wish they would credit the dress designers as well...This year it seems there are so many beautiful dresses (Nagasu and Wagner short program for example, and Wang who just skated)
I figured it would take time for the ice resurfacing allowing time for NBC to show some of the sps, but it seemed to take a long time. I guess the warmups allowed them more time before starting with Angela Wang, but it looks like Kiri wasn't shown. Did anyone see Kiri yet?
Anyway that same thing happened two years ago in the men's event with IN signing off and NBC reshowing some men's sps, and missing showing two skaters, one of whom was Jason Brown in his outstanding fp debut at senior Nats.
