Well, America had an unusually high medal count in Vancouver. I'm not surprised that the US team isn't pulling similar numbers.
I loved it, lol. http://25.media.tumblr.com/d120c3768...2rtao1_500.gifI think the way the rivalry is portrayed in the show is waaaay overdone, but really entertaining
Anyway, it's time for an ice dance gif-off
About the fight for Bronze, as I posted in the other thread:
You could see in the Team Event Short Dance when comparing B/S and P/B that B/S had 1.40 points more in PCS: That's a big difference, and it's pretty telling as to where the judges "want to see them".
I'm afraid P/B will need to skate clean and B/S and I/K to make more than 1 big mistake each to get a medal.
B/S, to me, were "a bit inferior to P/B in PCS, but more reliable", so it seems unfair to me they only need to skate clean to beat P/B, but that's where we're at I'm afraid.
Haha, glad it's not just me. Yeah it was kind of a mess by the end, but it was the sort of program I was looking forward to watching at the Olympics with all the casual, every-four-years people. I mean, the barking and crazy head-bobbing, the gunshot, her dying in his arms at the end... what's not to love!B/S are not skating the Four Seasons program (much to my immense disappointment
In other news, Meryl was wearing a new dress at practice yesterday. It's VERY pink, but I like it. (I grabbed the link from FSU, ty to rustymuffins!)
Will I/k's levels be 1 or 4? It's the biggest question over any team competitng. You know most teams in the final group will be 3 or 4 and have been that way all season no matter the panel. But I/k its 2 on almost all elements or 3 or 4 or all the way down to one sometimes! So that's why they have no shot at bronze. Not because they fell at euros but because I would not be surprised if every one of their technical elements was a level 1 or 2 tomorrow.
So W&P are so In the mix for bronze with p&b. maybe b&s but then the fd occurs and b/s fall out.
It's true they saved themselves from being eliminated by not doing barking dogs. All judges would be worried to give that high scores at the Olympics. Not even sure their mental patients program won't cause the same thing.
