    Part of me wished they went back to The Mission. Personally, that's my favorite FS from them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUBjAhoDzz8 But The Nutcracker is nice too.

    I want them to go out on a high note, full with throw 3As! Ditto with Pang and Tong!

    While we're all in nostalgic mood, I'd like to remind of L'Oiseau which probably was their most risky programme. I believe the only time they really got it together was at Euros and it was just magical because it hypnotised the whole arena. I don't know if that was my favourite programme of theirs (they had many great programmes), but it probably was the one which showcased how special they are.

    Perfect order for the Russians.
    Your gut should tell you that V\T are not going to miss this one, But if it's Euros all over again,
    S\K are right after and will get the PCS inflation they need to cover that ground, And there wont be 2 Russian messes

    Their program design was superior, but S/S tends to not execute their programs to their full potential when it counts...you can visibly see them get nervous and tense up while the Chinese can still skate perfect with a smile on their face.

    Which is why I'm desperately rooting for them in the FS to skate "perfect" because V/T doesn't do it for me performance wise and Pang/Tong is totally out of medal contention.

    They can only win on V/T majorly bombing, triple axel or not. Also I propose the use of "s cubic", it does make as much non sense as "s squared" and even accounts for Steuer.

    I never understood the phenomenon of S/Z. In my opinion most of their career they were incredibly boring and not artistic at all.
    Fixed that for you.

    How in the world is P and T out of medal contention? They are in fourth. One positon out and the third place team is a relatively newbie especially at this elite level. And considerign the erorr they ade int eh short the judges love them. Pang and Tong are definitely in for a medal or a shot at it.

    Ah ok, if that's what you meant, I totally agree then.

    S/S definitely aren't a consistent and never have been. But then nobody else in the history of pair skating came anywhere close in terms of complexity of program design. You can never have everything, I guess.

    Eeerm... You do realise that 'squared' means something different that 'times two?'

    S & S = S times two
    S & S =/= S squared

    Why didn't the organizers alternate the disciplines so skaters get a day off between their SP and FS? (Tue: Pairs SP, Wed: Men's SP, Thur: Pairs FS, Fri: Men's FS... and so on)
    I thought that's how Olympics have been scheduled.

    It would have made much more sense.
