    D/R probably wont make the GPF
    the ancient P/T still cant be beaten by them

    P/T should easily win this
    B/L could be dropped as Russian No.3, S/K already beaten them at a national competition last month

    They are Russia's number two and have been since last year. I know you hate them, but if they drop it will be to number 3. K/S are unfortunately done and were done last year too. I love them, especially Kavugati, so I say that with no joy, but the judges had dropped them for a few years now, and he will never recover for his injury in time for Sochi. Even in the highly unlikely that S/K manage to become Russia's number 2 above B/L this year (maybe they will even get a triple twist like the big kids have!) B/L's Oly spot is safe.

    I'm not saying K/S are still in the running for the Olympics, they wont be ready and may probably just make a one more year comeback to end their careers on a high note. B/L are safe in the Olympics team but Im just saying they could be Rus No.3 running into the Olympics, S/K have gotten a boost in PCS this season
    they were very close in PCS last national event that S/K won against B/L. B/L have good lines and one of the best 3Twit but the jumps are sometimes missing
    S/K have the jumps and interesting programs, if S/K get their 3twit back, they will beat B/L

    Pang/Tong seemed tense, possibly the opening fall has shaken them. Twist was two-footed, lift was two-footed. Great throw though. Huge and really solid. Given the mistakes they've made, TES seems to be a joke.
    I think Tong was nervous in the warm-up already, because he didn't land the 3toe (or I missed it). I found Pang really classy tonight. I also liked her arm movement in the lift and pairs spin. Love the opening pose. Kids were laughing before the program started but I don't know if the skaters heard them..


    As much as I love James & Cipres, that was a very disappointing performance, even more so when you saw how solid they looked in the warm-up. Vanessa is one my favorite pairs skaters ever. Hopefully, they'll come back strong in the LP.

    Barazova & Larionov: Liked the lift, the rest was rather uninteresting. That guy is bulky and she's so thin. They don't look so good, in my book. Denney & Coughlin should be ahead of them.

    Duhamel & Radford: I love this pair, but that SP music is plain awful. Also, they didn't look polished in this performance.

    Purich & Tran: Look like a junior pair. Their throw 3 toe is super tiny.

    German pair: I had never seen them before. Good performance, but tiny throw as well.

    Overall, a disappointing pairs SP event. So many mistakes on the jumps..

    Re: Pang/Tong being ahead of D/R, it's not game over for D/R. P/T beat S/S in the SP when they met head to head at.. NHK? Then S/S pulled ahead in the long. There are so many competitions they're starting to get mixed up in my mind lol, since I've been following some Sr. B's, too..

    Haven't had a chance to watch all the vids (thank you, again, Mao88!) but caught a few on Universal Sports - pleasantly surprised by Ryan Bradley's commentary. He obviously isn't an expert when it comes to pairs, but he has such a pleasant way of speaking on air (which I'm surprised about). Hope they use him more!
