    What a treat for fans to watch every moment that they can of Tessa and Scott. If this is their final competitive season, this will be their final International competition in Canada. After this, only Canadian Nationals.

    I've just watched Weaver/Poje FD at practice session - it is more smoother and more like real dance than in SLC competition and I see they're feeling good skating tango, overall they looked great for me. I was hoping silently that Tessa and Scott will do tango FD this season - they would put the ice on fire...

    From the comments it sounds like a lot of skaters/teams are looking good! I can only follow the posts as I am unable to view the live practices while here at work...

    Thanks so much for posting the live feed and sharing videos of the skaters. Can't wait to watch them!! I hope Christina has been able to build from her performance at Nepela. I'm sure getting more time to really train well now that she's recovered from injury is helping her big time.

    I'm sorry for You, but there are already lots of practice videos on youtube , so there's a possibility to watch them. I know it might be not the same, but there's at least these youtube videos.
    I truly enjoy Paul/Islam - their FD is exquisite this year, smooth, delicate but also powerful.
    For Tessa and Scott new costumes also for FD - I think they look better in them than in Finlandia Trophy, she was in pale pink dress with some little details on the upper part and she had her hair straightened, he was in burgundy shirt and black pants. They did first lift, twizzles, second rotational lift (it has changed since Finlandia) - from my non-professional eyes there might be problems with levels again like at Finlandia Trophy...Also, there was a problem with twizzles with Tessa. They did 2nd step sequence and last choreo lift, but it were some problems (but it was good later when they did it). Overall, I think it could be a brilliant program but they have to put the technically content together. I was curious (and still I am) about their spin.

    Im weirdly loving S/B FD, looks like a bit Harry Potter like but their look is very senior especially Bukin you'd think he's a veteran
    Riazanova/Tkachenko are soo slow.... level 1 or 2s on all pls

    V/M liked the costumes but other that still meh, SD could be built on but that's it

    Yeah, but the edges on S/B are poor. Tessa looked to be struggling, they may have injury issues that they're keeping close to the vest. That FD run through looked rough

    R/T look rough in general though they may not make the team. I hope they prove me wrong and what gives with all of the grimacing from Ilia. This Igor experiment is not working. He is good but he cannot help NOT everybody!

    well S/B edges and postures are poor, but they have decent speed and those twizzles are one of the best after D/W
    twizzles of S/B level4 with + GOE's, R/T they are soo slow I just noticed it, I hope they wont make in Sochi

    Wow Patrick had a really rough practice. Tough time landing most jumps in and out of the program. Fell just stroking and doing some turns. I wonder if he's completely well. Mike Slipchuk was coaching him at the boards with Kathy Johnson.

    I dont know much about Ice Dance
    but I can tell R/T those step sequence, twizzles are so slow that it merits level 1 or 2

    basically nothing much improved when then went to Igor
    so much for the revelation for them

    Chan will win anyways even with 3 falls like Osmond with her 2 falls
    so whats the use ? Yuzuru would have to skate almost clean to match Chan's absurd +GOE on his falls

    I hate the music. It is annoying and actually makes my head hurt. Miss Gold sure is looking slim and pretty though...
