    Yes that thought crossed my mind as well. LOL. He was doing his best brooding Hamlet until the scores were posted.

    Yeah, they should have only been a few points above D/R and S/S (even though it's disputable that S/S should have even had that score in the first place).

    Congrats to the Russians... that skate was brilliant and excellent execution on the SBS jumps and throws. The freak fall is a bit negligible, but still 149 points is absolutely unwarranted. That performance was not 17.5 points ahead of D/R.

    They must have gotten +3's on everything because they were about 12 points higher on TES, and 5.5 points higher on PCS.

    True but in comparison to Ssquared yep it was - if you score the Germans that high then V and T'sperformance was a world record. It is all relative. But wow... and not a good wow....

    M-T/M got the second highest TES of the afternoon.

    It was so weird with S/S. Throughout their whole FS, they looked like they have given up. Didn't even present the program properly. And then BAM! they go for the throw 3axel.

    Haha. Which reminds me of something Kurt Browning once said... that with V/T, the diva is Maxim (which I think is kind of hilarious and awesome)

    Protocols are up and D/B did get a downgrade on the SBS 3S, too bad, that made the difference. Maybe that's why they took so long for their marks. Did not see the under-rotation of that jump.

    Radford was over the toe and had poor flow out on his 3salchow. So it was the underrotation which caused that.

    Congrats to V/T on winning! D/R should have silver and MTT/M should be bronze but both teams should ALSO be really proud of how they skated and the fact that they did achieve such high placements. So deserved.

    S/S... not my favorite. Their quality is so strong and they hit the 3axel, but honestly who cares when they double the jumps and just look bored on the ice. I was VERY bored.

    Also very proud of Scimeca and Knierim and their 9th place finish. Glad they could at least ensure two spots for team USA next year. They have tons of potential, and hopefully they'll stay together and stay healthy at least through 2018 (but I won't hold my breath!).

    I really think M-T/M got lowballed on the PCS for skating so early. They really were the best Canadian pair this competition.

    The order I would have had the top 5 is V/T, D/R, M/M, S/S, P/T. If K/S had skated that free skate cleanly, likely I'd have them in 3rd or 4th place. S/S judging was a travesty. Love the audience booing, the crowd isn't stupid and knows when they've seen a held-up, overscored mess.

    Meaghan is positively beaming on the podium! I hope they can ignore all the politics and "wuzrobbing" and just focus on enjoying the moment and building towards Sochi.

    I love Aliona and Robin, but this is so sad...I don't even know how to put it. The program sucked, but they managed that 3 A in the end. Did that make up for all the other mistakes? The score was huge! That's not the skaters fault, it's the judging system that should explain their short comings!
