    According to the ISU results site, local time is GMT-5. Therefore, 11:45 LOC should be 16:45 GMT.

    So, why did the Pairs SP actually start at 15:45 GMT???!!!

    Off to YouTube now to see if LaRiserva have started putting up any vids yet, so that I can try to catch up on what I've missed.

    We just moved our clocks forward 1 hour on the weekend, maybe that is the difference.

    I think D/R are a great pair and ambitious . And today they skated almost perfectly, with respect to the difficulty of their program. Love them very much !

    Looking at these results , the top 5 are close. Anything is still possible, I guess. Sad for Berton and Hotarek. They have great chemistry on ice. Beautiful couple.

    K/S have been receiving level 1 on the DSpiral for a few times this season. Seems like an easy thing to fix, what is wrong with them? They can't even squeeze a point on such gimme move? No wonder they have becoming non-contenders.

    I wonder how hard is it to skate or how motivated you can be when you know that you are being pushed out somewhat (in general). I wonder how S/S feel

    The London area is crazy for figure skating. I don't think the arena is as big as some venues that have hosted Worlds. If all seats are used (and I doubt they will be as some will be taken up by judging, and possibly others for media), Budweiser Gardens seats just over 9000.

    There are people who are ugly on the outside, and there are people who are ugly on the inside. I think I will choose the outside every time..

    How good was this event? Last year, the best SP would've placed sixth here.

    I'd rather see a smaller packed venue than a large scattered venue. It doesn't look as sad.

    Duhamel is so adorbs. I only wish she had pinned her bangs back though.

This double standard keeps amuzing me.

    If you had been saying the same thing when your zamboni countryman were pulled by PCS and gifted medals that he didn't deserve, then your statement would be worthy some trust.

    Those are different marks for different skills.

    In terms of SS, yes V/T and S/S are better (nobody can touch S/S on this one). They have better posture and lines also and show more expression. So let's give it to them on PE as well, at least partly.

    But D/R had the most complex choreography and transitions and skated to the music more or less and had a lot of transitions. So they should have marked very highly in those aspects.

    Your lack of logic is quite astounding. Saying that Korpi gets high PCS is not attacking her appearance. It's attacking the judges for being mindless victims of the halo effect.

    Do you have something against Canadians? Every post you write has something bad to say about Canadians. I am shocked you are from Japan, every person I have met or encountered from Japan has been very nice and courteous.

    This was so thoroughly enjoyable..Off to a great start !

    S/S did seem a little hesitant..hope that's resolved by the free.

    B/L looked pretty crushed ... but their Free program is the best Spartacus program I've ever seen , so I hope to see it clean on Friday.

    But how great for both M-T/M and D/R . There's no doubt they laid it down when it counted. I absolutely adore both those SPs, just wonderful choreography.

    V/T have a couple of unlikeable programs for me . There's no denying their spectacular elements, or the quality of their skating, but they just don't thrill me the way I feel they could with better material. So I'm always somewhat disappointed.

    ETA: Oh, just an annoying thing that's been bugging me all season... How often do you suppose both Tracy and PJ have seen D/R's SP ..yet still they keep announcing their music as being from the opera La Boheme .. Don't they pay any attention ?
