    I refuse to pay for a whole season because my schedule is never conducive to being able to use it fully. It'd be a waste of money for me if I wasn't able to watch most of the competitions offered. (It's why I didn't even buy an NHL GameCenter Live subscription this season. I'll be busy later in the semester and wasn't going to waste the money)

    EDIT: I need to finally get my head out of the Russian Nationals! I keep on thinking S/K is Stolbova/Klimov!!!

    At the end of a program, when pairs exchange a few quick words and a nod, are they checking to see if the partner tripled the SBS jumps?

    Double Toe = 1.3
    triple sal = 4 but with -3 GOE and then -2 for the 2 falls. They might be getting negative point for this element. Not pretty equal at all.

    true, my bad... I'm just a fan of S/K (the US and the russians!) and I'd give them way more PCS than D/C.

    Brief Report from the arena: Zhang/Bartlomay and Leng/Leduc were the favorites for me so far. I feel both Denny/Coughlin and Schmica/Kneierm were slightly overscored.

    I say slightly because other than their errors the elements done were of highly quality.

    I will say that Leng/Leduc are the fastest of all....

    They're showing the final pairs waiting by the boards. And here they go. They are on the ice for warmup now.

    Mrs P, I hope you have a chance for a fuller report later because frankly these placements are surprising (to say the least!!).

    wow. this is crazy! I've never heard of Leng/Leduc before... I should have invested more time in my predictions!
    I wonder if some in the last group will be intimidated by the high scores so far (Davis/Brubaker?) and fall

    Gretchen Donlan and Andrew Speroff. She is 20 and he is 25.
    She is in a sparkly black unitard. He is in black with a sparkly V neck. Hers has a lacy back and lots of spiderwebby type detailing.

    They look really relaxed in the warmup, waiting by the boards now.


    He is a very elegant skater.
    SBS 3T - nice
    Big 3twist, teeny bit crashy on landing.
    Death spiral, good.
    They both look very musical to me and expressive during the step sq. A lot of eye contact between them. Nice.
    She has excellent extension and positions in the lift.
    Throw 3S - she two foots.
    Pair spin - V, change foot, sit, catchfoot.

    Wow, you can tell the crowd really like them. Big cheers. They look pleased.
    And lots of work for the sweepers!
    They're stopping to shake hands with a few people by the boards.

    61.70 and they are in 5th.

    Wow geneorous marks, very generous. Of course K's issues are nothing compared to Smirnov's!

    Good one. With these mistakes and these scores the whole world might as well stop skating because the Americans will win OGM and OSM

    Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier. She is 18 and he is 21.
    She wears back deep V neck halter dress with a split in the skirt and some red ? detailing.
    He has red detailing on pants.

    3tw - lots of speed going in, nice.
    Throw 3L - big and smooth!
    Nice choreo in between elements.
    SBS 3S - she falls, what a shame. He turns out of his.
    Lift looks good.
    She gets very low at the end of the death spiral.
    Pair spin...V...sit...catchfoot..
    She skates with great expression in the step sq. I really like the choreo.

    This was a nice program. Really pleasant to watch. I liked it. Solid.
    They look pleased in the KnC. She is very pretty.

    59.53 and they are in 7th.

    Lindsay Davis and Rockne Brubaker. She is 21 and he is 27.
    She is in a strapless navy to lilac dip dye dress. Sweetheart neckline.

    SBS 3S - she falls.
    I don't care much for this music :(
    3tw - little bit crashy
    Throw 3Lz - she was really tilted and managed to save it but two footed I think!
    Lift looks good.
    Music changes and they have a bit more energy now.
    Pair spin - sit....catchfoot...change foot...sit...V..not a lot of speed.
    Step sq is OK. They could really, really perform this but not a huge amount going on.
    Death spiral.

    A little bit meh for me.

    54.14 and they are in 9th.
