    Lipinski's 1998 Olympic LP - almost everyone has this listed, and being the huge Tara fan I am, I couldn't pass it up! It stands out in my mind as the ultimate program, the best I have ever seen. I get chills everytime I watch it.

    Baiul's 1994 Olympic SP - I loved her LP, but I thought her SP was much better and had more choerography, it wasn't just her standing around and wiggling. It was amazing.

    Baiul's 1993 Worlds LP - She skated with fire and passion. This skate was miles better than her LP in Lillehammer. If she would have skated it that same way in Lillehammer, I don't think there would be as much of a question of who should have won.

    Browning's 1993 Worlds LP - Love it, love it, love it! Need I say more?

    Cohen's 2004 Worlds SP - Best performance from her to date, hope we can see many more of these in the coming years!

    Goebel's 2003 Worlds LP - I thought this was the best performance he had given to date, although it wasn't enough to win that night, I was so happy for him!

    Ina & Zimmerman 2002 Olympic LP - It was amazing!! I definetly think they should have placed higher. It was the best skate from them, ever.

    That's all I can think about right now... I don't have any to list pre-1993 because that is when I 1st became interested in skating, and I was only 11, so I don't remember much before then!
