    If Julia wins the OGM by winning fair and square, skating well and everybody faltering, then I am fine with this.

    I wish this would be Asada's time, but at this point I am rooting for KIM to give a skating lesson to little Julia.

    In the case where everybody ups their game and Julia is still on top (and I could bet right now 1000$ it will happen! we all know it will I am over with this sport.

    The Russians found exactly the right time to be treating this sport just like Rythmic gymnastics....

    Obviously Kim has the edge over Julia who should be below her in both Technical mark and Component mark after GEOs.

    The only way Yuna can lose is falling once in SP and again in LP.
    She's the 2010 Gold medalist so everyone expects her to win again. So if she loses to Julia with a minor mistake, it will be messy. The public will not take this well

    I'm rooting for everyone to go clean,
    Sadly it'll mean no medal for Ashley,
    But it probably WILL mean podium is the same Ladies at world, Unknown order, With a shot for Gracie Gold too
    If Lipnitskaya upsets any of the amazing three when clean, Then yes, We can stop watching the sport
    But i think she will appeal the most to the common crowd, Because of her age, Cheeks and exceptional spins

    I am sorry to say that unfortunately, the public will not care less how Julia wins, just that she wins.
    The public is 95% russian...

    why hostility towards Julia ? if she is clean
    I don't see why she should not be rewarded

    also don't forget Gracie Gold is also in the mix
    if she is clean he has 3Lz-3T and will score in 73-74 range in SP
    her max in LP is 140, that could put her above Yuna and Julia

    speed, power, body type, and facial beauty just like Kim
    Gracie should be scoring well with this two

    Unfortunately Yuna is not as invicible as before. But if both skaters will go clean, yuna wins with a decent lead. But lets not forget Mao.

    Lip's personal best scores are still significantly lower than Yuna's PBS. Lip seems to be slated for bronze though. Yuna and Mao would have to meltdown if Lip is to win the OGM.

    I agree, I think it's weird how you don't feel the crowd, Except for the Russian crowd in that arena,
    maybe it's cause it's still early,
    I know for me what made me give up my tickets was just being scared to travel there right now, I know another person like that,
    I have a couple of friends who said when they went to worlds and GPF, People in the crowd laughed at skaters from other countries when they fell,
    And then again, A Facebook friend of mine is there, And he just wrote he's having a wonderful time,
    So i'm not yet sure what to make of the atmosphere there

    If Yu-Na skates 100% clean, she will get about 150
    Sadly, I'm kind of feeling like Julia will also come close to that number due to the judges' leniencies toward her. The judges want her to win, and she is going to be overscored no matter what. She will probably break 70 pcs if she skates clean; something i find ludicrous and absurd. She deserved around 62 for a clean performance.

    Well, the hostility is not towards Julia, it is towards how she has miraculously improved her "skating" (see PCS and GOE) and towards her Federation.
    As I said, this looks like a Rythmic gymnastics contest.

    If the Olympics had been in Norway, yesterday's short program results would have been:

    Kostner
    Lipnistskaia (with minimal margin)
    Wagner and Asada tied (but higher score)
    and so on

    We all know by this time that Skyfly you are Russian...it is fine to root for your fellow countrymen, but please do not be blind with this overscoring...

    Mao should worry about Gracie too
    she has been getting media exposure by US media
    they may have dumped Wagner but they will be putting all their eggs on Gracie

    Gracie has something Mao lacks, speed and powerful big jumps
    the PCS could not be enough for the +GOEs Gracie will be getting
    judges love Gracie too

    She went lights out at Europeans, Doing the 2a combo after the halfway and getting 138+
    But then again, Both her lutzes there got -1's, If she has the same skate and the judges give her extra points for both she'll definitely be in the 140's

    I still can't help but burst into laughter every time she looks back to the judges like a Holocaust victim in that red dress

    And i don't think Yu-na is going for 7 triples, So no 150 for her
