    Kaitlin and Jean-Luc were fantastic! TES is not quite as high as their JGP event earlier in the season, but still very solid!

    Oh no....the TES ticker thing is going down. :( Seems they are being quite stingy tonight.

    Yanovskaya/ Mozgov were quite solid and it looks like the TES is going to stock. They will have a nice lead going into the FD.

    Wow, the Russian team's score blows the others out of the water by 4-5 points, I think?

    I'll have to come back tomorrow night and see the Sherlock FD, I'm curious about that one.

    the height similarity between the Parsons and Hawayek/Baker is disturbing
    how did H/B get 7's in PCS marks ?? no difference anyways they wont last for a year same with the Parsons
    there should be a rule with height difference in Ice Dancing

    Mcnamara/Capenter should ahve gotten Hawayek/Bakers PCS
    they have strong edges and good speed
    that was a PB for Yanovskaya/Mozgov ?

    Well, people don't know how tall they're going to be when they're children, which is when a lot of the successful teams are matched.

    well at least the boy has to be taller by couple inches even at the start of the pairing
    so you wont end up like the Parsons and Hawayek/Baker who wont be a pair in a year or two

    sky_fly20, we get it you are obsessed about couples with little or no height difference, but do you have to keep going on about it?
    It's really getting very boring! Have you any idea how difficult it is to find a partner? Sometimes you have to make compromises just to have a partner. Would you rather they stop skating and never have a partner?

    So tell me sky_fly20, do you also find it better that a couple has a 30cm height difference like Buckland and Coombs?

    Hawayek is 17 and 5'3" so hopefully she won't grow another inch. Baker is 20 and is 5'7".

    I don't want to get excited for a russian junior dance team especially their coaches are Kustarova/Alexeeva but Yanovskaya/Mozgov actually looked good. I hope Anna isn't grown so much and I hope Kustarova not going to bend her over the ice like Bobrova.

    All of the teams' tech scores kept dropping except for the last one. I guess they are the pre-designated winners because they are bigger than everyone else.
