    I have to say, V/T were incredible. I'm happy they were able to withstand the immense pressure.

    The NBC coverage sucks. I thought they would show more than five pairs (I hope they show P/T).

    I'm loving Trankov's dramatic end. He is larger than life, and I love it!

    Now that I watched it, I am very happy for them. Considering in Vancouver, both finished 7th and 8th with different partners (Stan retired and now their assistant coach, no comment about Maria). It was meant to be!

    And Pang and Tong....

    I'm going to miss P/T. That was lovely but not as magical as four years ago. I get the feeling that they're tired and will be happy to retire. I'm so happy they have an Olympic silver and two World gold medals.

    I thought the way Scott Hamilton talked about V/T's middle "stand around in the center of the ice for a while after the pair spin" part as "choreographically quiet" was a remarkable turn of phrase to describe a resting period without choreography.

    Sandra thought it was "an impossibly difficult performance." I don't know if that was some grandiose hype or if she's really that stupid. It was very well performed but "impossibly difficult?" Unless she's buying into the "it's really hard to skate in front of your countryman" stuff. There were plenty of technically more difficult programs.

    Thank god they showed P/T!

    Aliona looks like a ghost.

    Aw. I'm going to miss S/S, too. I'm all right with them winning bronze. I wish it could've been gold.

    I want to give Ali and Robin the biggest hug!

    They just showed an actual kiss between Max and Tanya! She's still with Stan, right?

    Maybe since there are several new sports, this means that there is less coverage for each sport?

    Though it was heartbreaking to watch Aliona and Robin, there was something uplifting about their performance as well. After Robin fell, they both had to know that they didn't have a chance at gold or maybe even silver, but they kept going and gave it their all. And then they attempted the throw triple axel! What strength of character. They were true to themselves and to skating.

    At the other end of the spectrum emotionally was that exquisite, almost intimate program by Pang and Tong. The way they looked at each other, and how they expressed the music, drew my eyes to their every move. Medal or no medal, their performance was superb.

    The precision and charisma of Stolbova & Klimov was a delightful surprise. They really carried through the performance aspect of the music, conveying the affectionate relationship of Morticia and Gomez Addams beautifully with their entire bodies. One thing that impressed me was how close they are in height. Though this similarity increases the effectiveness of their unison, Klimov must be astonishingly strong to do those innovative lifts.

    A splendid top four.

    I have been waiting since 7 pm. Now, just before 9 pm they started showing FS, with Castelli & Shnapir's LP. For two hours they showed other sports non-stop. NBC's evening coverage sucks. Fortunately I have NBCSN, so I watch FS live (or record when I cannot). I still like to watch it in the evening though, but waiting for it to start for 2 hours is ridiculous. Last night they didn't even show Stolbova-Klimov's SP.

    I am pretty sure Max/Tanya (V/T) are confirmed together and have been for a few years.

    For a moment I thought "AWKWARD!" because Stan was right there when they kissed! Nevertheless, it's cute!
