    On an up note, given the list of competitors, Hurtado and Diaz have an excellent chance of making the FD. I really want to see the Picasso program again--this time I hope with no falls.

    Throughout their history it seems V/M skate better when they skate before D/W... In fact besides the team competition I cannot recall a time where they had a bad skate skating before them. They have no pressure. V/M actually have a very good draw and they do not have the pressure of skating right after one of the Russian couples. Bad draw for Chock and Bates, The Italians and The Shibutani's

    I think the top 2 groups draw together so no, V/M's draw is not baffling once you know that. It could have as easily been D/W in the second to last group. In men, Chan AND Hanyu were both in the second to last group in the SP for this reason. I am a little confused that the Shibs evidently are ranked behind Coombs and Buckland and the Germans, but such is life.

    I am of the opinion that this is indeed a bad draw for V/M. I take the point that they tend to do better skating before D/W but it would have been INFINITELY better if they were still in the final group. This is, IMO them skating too early period. The judges are going to unconsciously save some room for D/W. This would probably have happened to whichever team skated first but the effect will be magnified now.

    Also obviously a bad draw for B/S but at least they are last in the second to last group. We will see.

    D/W have lucked out.

    Davis and White had a similarly early draw for Worlds' SD last season, and it didn't hurt their chances at all.

    Perfect draw for Weaver & Poje to have a chance at the bronze medal! Skating last in the OD will help them tremendously. Meanwhile the 2 Russians teams get awful draws, not good for them but good news for W&P.

    Guys, important! If this is the Hunger Games part 2... what will Effie Trinket be wearing?!! Since Johnny is officially Effie.

    I'm guessing blue or something on the cooler end of the spectrum. Green. Purple.

    So, you're saying that they will skate their short dance "with a little bit of luck"?

    Anyone know where to find the estimated times each team will be skating? I know they were listed for other events, but I don't know where they were found.

    After the awful men's event, I can't wait for the dance event

    that being said I'm still terrified we'll see something like the ODs in 2006... hope I'm wrong.
