Hmmmmm so far the Germans feel rather lackluster to me. I wasn't a fan of Pina last year but at least they were committed to that. This routine....
The top 3 so far are so close it's their SPs that determine the final placements.
M-T/M should be well ahead of the Germans in the FS with the errors... but I imagine the Germans will be held up on PCS to continue to be ahead of them. Door is wide open for V/T to win now.

3FTh - very big!
3T+3T+SEQ - she only does 2T+2T+SEQ
FCCoSp - unison good
3S - he falls, she doubles (credit: 2S and fall)
3ATh - wow, low but landed. Twofooted and hand down
Far from their best, big mistakes on the sbs jumps. They did throw triple axel, though!
FS: 64.18 + 68.91 - 1.00 = 132.09
Tot: 205.56, in 1st (out of 14)
OMG, they did it! they tried 3A in a last second! WOW
Every team and skater goes through a rough year. Maybe its good that S/S have there's a year before the Olympics unlike last time when they struggled the year of the Olympics.
I would have s and s in fourth in the free; maybe even fifth but the judges won't do that to them. Really disappointing blah skating I think the 3A was just to scare the other teams. I hate when it is mind games.
Whoa. OK did they just pull a throw 3axel? Do you think it was rotated?
Definitely not the best from S/S. I wonder where this will place. I honestly don't know, especially since they threw in the landed 3A at the end.
Well I was right. Savchenko/Szolkowy totally bombed.
THEY LANDED THE THROW 3AXEL AT THE END THOUGH OMG!
3ATh!!! Too bad about the mistakes, they were really boring... till the last jump!
did meghan do her 'classy' jump/dance after the performance?
Wow, what an ending! That's gutsy!
