    Someone made a joke about Team Meshnov using a voodoo doll to make Kovtun do poorly in the Men's SP. But then the Russian ladies have done poorly and so has I/K....so I'm joking that it's worked too well.

    It's a very good running joke. I've been cracking up every time I see it mentioned.

    So happy for BS...they truly deserved their score))))
    I agree the programs aren't as good as prior years, but Scott and Tessa are ADULTS and could have spoken up if they thought the program music and/or choreography weren't going to help their cause. Instead, they chose to stick with and stick up for these awful programs, particularly that @#$% version of Carmen.

    This is exactly why the fact that D/W and V/M always get crazy high GOE and PCS regardless of how they actually skate is so infuriating.

    V/M have made mistakes whilst B/S gave a really strong performance but it doesn't matter. Nobody else is able to reach D/W and V/M unless they fall numerous times because the score gap is just so big. :/

    I wouldn't mind it if everything they showed was outstanding but Zouva's choreography is usually anything but.

    On another note, I agree that PCS scores for I/K were just ridiculous. I think that their program is actually really good but they really didn't skate well at all tonight. To get over a point more on the PCS than C/L for that mess is just an insult.

    I do feel bad for everyone though in all seriousness....

    V/T and B/S seem to be the exceptions but I think that's because they supported Menshov being sent to Euros.

    B&S should have been 2nd tonight over V&M. P&B deserved only 6th place. W&P should be in 3rd or 4th. I&K were overmarked in PCS for a poor effort. Dissapointing judging all around.

    Yeah- it's funny. Just like trankov spoke in favor of menshov and v/t did well did b or s say something? Lol! Rob him of his potential worlds spot!

    I agree. I would have had B/S 2nd by a small margin as well.

    I made that joke and now I kinda regret it given what a total disaster Team Russia's performances were ever since. ;P

    Okay does anyone find it interesting that the gap between V/M (2nd) and the Shibs (8th) in TES is only 1.43? A whole slew of teams scoring in the 34 range.

    Man the level of scoring was high here....everyone in the top 12 scored more than 60.

    There's this horrendous movie with Shirley Temple as a teen (when she wasn't the adorable moppet anymore). In it, there's this black maid, and every time something bad happens she tells Shirl, "It's da VOODOO I tell ya..."

    Actually the one I feel really bad for is Brian Orser. Someone must have bought a whole SLEW of voodoo dolls with his name on them.

    IMO B/S were better in the GP. Today their SD lacked spark and fell flat. How in the world were they able to score better than their earlier outings?

    I had them in a 66ish range. A bittersweet ending to the short dance for sure.

    Also a shame Z/G will not make the second to last group. I/K were gifted in the SD and thus causing Z/G to place 11th. I'm very bitter about this results.

    Yeah I do feed bad, particularly for Liza who seem to suffer the most from it, but I can't help bringing it up because I have this image of Menshov and his coaching team sitting at home with voodoo dolls....

    I throughly enjoyed the last two groups. I have been praying for awhile for Anna and Luca to win Bronze at Worlds.
    I am hoping for a miracle and now that we have a new Pope maybe it will happen!

    Congrats to D/W, V/M and B/S well done!

    Shout out to W/P, Natalie and Fabian and the Shibs!
