    I think it's unlikely, because he's not likely to get quite the same PCS from a panel of international judges when Chan, Hanyu, and Takahashi are in the field.

    Of course, if he skates after them and performs even better than he did at Nationals, it could just happen.

    It was the best figure skating website by far, for a long time and still contains a lot of valuable information.

    It's a shame that the owner didn't have time/energy any more to keep it updated (I can understand it though, as it must have taken a lot of work).

    I used to really enjoy Sandra's reports from major competitions.

    She must have spent many late nights at US Nationals, typing and posting her notes, which were chock full of information and savvy opinion.

    If I were to make a thread asking how many people here were fans of both Yuna and Mao, where would I post it?

    The Edge is the best place for threads like that, if you want the most people to participate.

    In every other sport I have ever seen a podium ceremony for, the presentations are done in the order 3-2-1.
    But I remember for sure that at the Vancouver Olympics, the ice dance medalists were presented in order of: bronze, silver, gold.
    (Wonder whether it is a matter of Olympic protocol superseding skating protocol??)

    As Davis/White were introduced and skated to center ice, a very wide shot happened to catch Virtue/Moir -- visible only if you knew where to look at the edge of the rink -- cheering for their friends/training mates. It was one of my favorite moments from Vancouver.

    Another lasting memory is of Davis/White in their spot on the podium leaning down to hug Virtue/Moir, who were at ice level (before stepping up to the top of the podium).

    Stupid question:
    Where can I find the various spread sheets with the results of the prediction games?

    Question 1:
    If the Olympics are every four years, why were the Winter Olympics held in '92 and again in '94 just two years later?

    Question 2:
    Why do most pairs and ice dance couples not perform their lifts during practices at skating competitions?

    In 1986, the International Olympic Committee voted to start alternating the winter and summer Olympics with an Olympics being held every two years, with 1992 being the final year that they would be held within the same year. So to start the alternating cycle, they held the Winter Olympics in Lillihammer, Norway in 1994 and the Summer Olympics followed in 1996 in Atlanta, USA.

    Both the summer and winter games used to be in the same year. That has changed so that every second year is now an Olympic year of one games or another. When that happened? Not that long ago; perhaps in '92.

    Is this thread for any stupid questions? Or just Olympic based ones? I am new and still trying to feel it out. I was wondering how most people transported their ice skates to the rink, which I feel is such a dumb question :P I before just used a bag, but was wondering if that was the best way to transport them since they get squished together and rub against each other. If this is the wrong thread to ask, by all means, let me know ^_^
