    Spill your real hopes

    While I pray for all to skate lights out in RussianOLY I have secret hopes for winners who would blow me away-the talented deserving ones who don't yet get the marks. I know whos gonna win ladies but my secret wish that will....drum roll...make me cry is .....Akiko! She's awesome. I'm praying for her. And the other lady needing /deserving gold/silver is.... Carolina! And I will throw the popcorn to see either Grace or Osmond do bronze. Funny my heart lies with the impossible. Akiko is so great. What a story! I want it more than for Mao, as she has peaked and won over Akiko wrongly. Still love Mao tho-who doesn't ?

    I will cry if Akiko wins by sheer luck, good skating, other errors!.

    I will cry if Adam Rippon makes it through to team and podiums. I know, not likely. My sentimental favorite is Dai, but I'd be happy to see Javi win. I know it isn't likely, but if Lysacek makes it through and podiums-I'll really feel he is vindicated all the cruelty he gets. I thin Chan will win, and as its late in season, he hopefully won't fall or mess up too much.

    I'll be happy with several pairs-the program will decide my truest hope.

    I think gold and silver are a lock by you all know who. I love the Shibs, but winnning bronze tho unlikely.Still. Id ;ove to see NA sweep in dance.

    True confessions?

    Dai has tremendous fan base. I'll cry if he wins, no doubt. He's a warrior.

    If this were to happen, I would seriously break down and cry of happiness. I would. I really would.

    I don't think I've ever necessarily wished Takahashi on the podium, deserved or not. He's a case whose jumps didn't factor big in my preference, rather that I'm glad his jumping skills were good enough to give him an exposure so that I got to know him. Really, he can have doubles and a few triples for all I know and still look groovy - as long as he lands. He's recognized enough to maintain a high profile reputation without medals. It's ok whether he falls or wins in competitions, and won't be ecstatic to see him medal either (he's past that needing stage).

    ...Would still be happier to have him in top 5 or 6. And all talked about skaters in that range: Ten, Fernandes, Chan, Yuzuru. What a harvest ground we have for Men's season! It's a blessing to have multiple realistic, close-tied podium picks based on preferences Some are better and some are young, but given possible improvements, any of these on the podium wouldn't surprise me, to be honest.

    I'd like to see a darkhorse candidate win both Men and Ladies.

    I want these youngsters who are knocking on the door to kick it in instead.
