    Why aren't they letting IceNetwork viewers see whatever clip they are looking at in the arena?

    I hope Sean Rabbitt can skate a clean program. He's such a fantastic performer.
    I was presently surprised when I heard him on the NBC coverage; being such a power jumper, I thought he would be all about the quads, but he actually does a good job explaining why the component scores matter too.

    I really admire Jonathan a lot and so hope he knows how special he is; I really appreciate his nationals appearances a lot; sure, I wish he could go further, but he's been, for me, a very special moment at nationals for sometime now and I just love it/him.

    and yes, I admit it, I'm enjoying, for the most part, Weiss' commentary - I think he could be a little more precise about a few things, but overall, nicely done.

    He's done it for several years now and I have always thought he's been one of the better ones that we've had.

    I'm so relieved that Josh skated well! Too bad about Jason's 3Axel, but he does have a tendency to UR it; he really needs to work out his kinks with that jump.

    He'll get it in time. He seems to be more confident with it as time goes on.

    Does he remind the viewers every 5 minutes how he has a wife and how that makes him totally HETEROSEXUAL?

    Oh Michael, I will never forget all the drama from back when he competed.

    I wish we could see the jumbotron for the hall of fame induction clips....

    I'm glad that Jason went for the 3axel; that is the first step to conquering it in competition - putting it out there. Woot woot!!!

    he really did his best to learn the system when he skated in it, so I think it helps a lot.

    Me too. Yeah, I'm glad Jason is going for it too. He's done some beautiful ones in practice.

    No he talks about the skating - I never understood all the drama that fans made about a guy who was proud of his family. That it was taken to such an extreme was not Mike's fault.

    I would assume something to do with copyrights preventing it.

    I agree -- they still make a big deal of it in the Disson specials == I think I've seen that whole "dinner with the Weisses" clip a bunch!

    ETA oh, sorry, this was meant for Mrs. P...several posters posted before I could post this
