    You're kidding, right? Just like people are still guffawing over SLC--another laff riot, huh. Scoring controversies are just comedy central. Yup, judging controversies...The Three Stooges....judging controversies...The Three Stooges...Same difference!

    Agreed. I am thankful that Max Aaron and Zhang/Bartholomay have the opportunity to compete at Worlds.

    And if the Russian skater skates better than the others?

    Oh wait, I forgot. No Russian skater can possibly skate better than The Precious Ones.


    Anyway, ~I~ am thankful that we get Dani and Greg and Brooklee in one last outing this season, and thankful that Brendan is taking the time he needs to see a sports psychiatrist, get his head together and recover from his crazy long season.

    Well, if all the top skaters skate their best, Yulia definitely shouldn't win. She may have one more triple in her program, but her PCS are clearly not up to par with the best ladies in the world.

    I don't think Julia will win. But I think she will be on the podium if she skates well. If not, I think Gracie will take her place. I think (hope?) Mao and Carolina will go 1-2, in either order.

    ETA: As to what I'm thankful for, I'm thankful that the Olympics aren't going to be in Russia again--ever, I hope!

    The season is almost over, We get to finally see a really competitive ice dance competition without D/W and V/M, finally! A new world champion will be crowned. Ditto for almost every other field, but this rivalry was starting to bore me to tears.

    No one will be laughing for a while. Next winter Olympics are in Korea. The subject will be brought up and will be discussed extensively during the next Olympic games.

    Mao and Carolina skating their best are not exactly good odds.

    There will be something new to talk about that is not:

    *Adelina
    *YuNa
    *Olympic judging
    *Johnny's divorce.

    I'm sure Yuna controversy will continue till the end of the Olympic cycle. They are not letting this go.
