    I would prefer that to everyone saying the sky is falling and trying to fix judging issues yet only based on Sochi or worse Adelina vs Yuna alone. Lame! Don't get me wrong it's quite comical and its free so ill be to no end!!

    Maybe after tonight they will remember who Caro is! I'm pulling for Mao and Yulia but she could use some redemption too!!

    There will always be crime. It doesn't mean that the judicial system should be abolished.

    There's always room for improvement. ^^

    ^Yes!!!!
    Doesn't the skater with the higher-scoring LP win the tiebreak? In any case it's high time Carolina set a WR to become the new target of some well-earned hatred and envy from the jealous ubers... whoops, I mean attention from ardent fans.

    It's not like those are the only two existing options.

    What?! No!

    It's just so dumb (but so entertaining too! )

    That would be fantastic in so many ways. I want to see that happening!

    Edit: BTW, when does the FS begin? I am debating whether to watch live.

    True. Also true is that there would not be as much excitement if there wasn't a competition. (Gala, anyone?) A lot of people wouldn't be here talking if this event wasn't a competition. I don't know whether some folks are really that subordinate or twisted in some way.

    We can celebrate the occasion and athletes' excellence, and discuss possible improvements at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive.

    I'm trying to decide now if I should sleep for a couple hours or tough it out and stay up 24hrs again. I got really loopy during the SP where I did stay up for 24hrs.

    McCorkell has withdrawn, according to the official ISU page. Anyone know why?

    Jenna's withdrawn??? How awful! Isn't she retiring?

    I was hoping to see her one last time, especially since she just didn't make it to the free in Sochi.
