    We will still score people who choose to just predict the top 3, for the record. They just have a much smaller chance of winning.

    All right, I had no intention of joining - as I'm awful at predictions or guessing. But... This just seems like too much fun to pass up. And besides, someone has to be dead last, right? Might as well be me.

    So... without further ado:

    Skate America

    Men:


    1. Max Aaron
    2. Takahiko Kozuka
    3. Daisuke Takahashi
    4. Jason Brown
    5. Tatsuki Machida
    6. Artur Gachinski

    ETA Changed because of the withdrawal of Brian. (Boo hiss to the French skating fed whom I now hate with the passion of a thousand suns.)

    ETA2 Due to the withdrawal of Denis. (Get well soon, Denis!)

    (Honestly? I have noooooo idea! Is it me, or are the men especially tricky?)

    Ladies:

    1. Mao Asada
    2. Ashley Wagner
    3. Elena Radionova
    4. Elizaveta Tuktamysheva
    5. Valentina Marchei
    6. Mae Berenice Meite

    Pairs:

    1. Volosozhar/Trankov
    2. Moore-Towers/Moscovitch
    3. Berton/Hotarek
    4. Denney/Coughlin
    5. Stolbova/Klimov
    6. Castelli/Schnapir

    Note: In ice dance my blind guessing is even more blind - as I don't even watch it. So, if some of my guesses sound especially insane, it's not because I'm betting on an underdog - it's just ignorance plain & simple... But here goes:

    Ice dance:

    1. Davis/White
    2. Cappellini/Lanotte
    3. Shibutani/Shibutani
    4. Tobias/Stagniunas
    5. Hubbell/Donohue
    6. Carron/Jones

    (And now I'll "go" and see what other people have guessed... )

    1. Something we learned last year is that we are ALL terrible at guessing. Welcome to the party!

    2. To not be dead last all you have to do is actually guess for each event. If you do this you'll be in the middle at a minimum, promise

    I find the people who win these types of prediction games tend to not over think it.

    I had a co-worker win an NCAA tournament pool who knew nothing about basketball. She basically made her picks on which teams had better looking uniforms.

    And as in March Madness, you always have to account for the "Cinderellas" and the No. 1 players who choke.

    Thanks - and thanks for organising it!

    Ah, well, then I'll be denied even the glories of Last Place? Being in the middle sounds so... undistinguished. Oh, well...

    @ Mrs P - I can definitely say that I have not overthought it. I also haven't gone with my own preferences (this time - that may change another time), so if things turn out better for some of my favourites than I guessed - well, I'll have some consolation there at least.

    You should really post some guesses to fill out your form, especially dance. You will surely get some points for them. No need to handicap yourself.
