    As I think someone mentioned, this is being held in Sochi, far away from the major metropolitan centers. I imagine far fewer people are able or willing to make the time commitment involved, compared to the Olympics.

    Even if the results at this point seem a foregone conclusion, I still can't wait for this free skate! While I *adored* the final group of ladies at Korean nationals, I'm pretty sure there's no ladies event more *consistently entertaining* than the Russian national championships: The garish costumes! The impossible tricks! The eerie flexibility suggestive of already crushed childhood rhythmic gymnastics dreams! The biased judging that would make even Marie-Reine Le Gougne uneasy! And the tortured, melodramatic music selections that assure us these girls are serving us profound *EMOTION* with a capital, neon-pink 'E.'

    There are few things better in life. Let the finale begin!

    Anna Maksimova has an awful bad habit of putting her head down when she lands every jump. It's very distracting.

    What kind of mistake did Biryukova make when she chose this dress? Black and red for S&D?! The light green one was a lot better...

    Pervushkina is so pretty to me, her costume was tragic
