    That costume is like a satin tourniquet, so it is not surprising that he looks a bit stiff. LOL!

    Take it easy. I didn't offend anybody "you know". It was just an observation, and I already wrote in my next comment: "Yeah it's early. Now I think there are more people actually."

    What is it Russians and gunshots to open a routine?

    Nice hight and attack though


    Also: I think Guarise is stiff no matter what he wears, But he could wear whatever he wants, As long as it's tight

    Yeah.

    Although I forgot that he just had a knee operation, right after Sochi.

    Okay, I really like the Antipova/Maisuradze pair, I thought they were a bit stiff at first, but the choreography was beautiful in the second half of the program.

    It sounded like a thunder sound effect to me, was it supposed to be a gunshot?

    Antipova/Maisuradze have a ton of potential. Their twist is FANTASTIC. She easily has room for another rotation and it's landed beautifully. Deserved lead IMO.

    Wende/Wende had a lovely skate. Since they came right after the first group, their power & speed was so noticeable. They were on another level to what had come before them! I've always had a soft spot for them.

    Zhang/Bartholomay had a nice skate and I like their connection with each other. I'm impressed with their consistency. That said, their skating looks really small compared to not only the top teams, but also mid-ranking teams like the Wendes.

    I've never been to a live ice skating event. Do they always play music? Whats the matter with quiet? Do folks have to constantly be entertained? Just my grip.

    Yup, I pretty much agree with all of this, though I think Z/B have the potential to skate bigger. The Russians really impressed me. That was some twist.

    I really liked A/M, nice skate. Was that Artur Dimetri in K&C? If so he has changed.

    GO T/K!!

    I would've had the JPN pair below both the EST and the BLR pair by just a bit
