Well, I really liked what I saw, for the most part.
This was the 1st time I saw Katy Taylor and I was very impressed. Great program, and very nice costume, hair, makeup..
I loved Sasha's program! I think folks in Moscow will love her even more! The spin at the end was somewhat disturbing though..looked like she was one-legged or something.. maybe it's just me! Very innovative though!
I suspect people will not agree with me, but Michelle's program was just ok. She had the cleanest skate, but I did not see the fire and passion that Sasha had.Typical Kwan performance. It seems that the only things are different year after year is the costume and music (I have to say that last year LP was outstanding, lots of passion!).
It was the 1st time I got to see Jonny's SP and I really enjoyed it. It's a shame he hada few wobbles here and there.
I did not think that Weiss was such a disaster as some sources have been suggesting. Considering the nasty spill he took early on, he had a decent skate. Nice spins.
Matt Savoie was fantastic..He and Jonny and Abt are the best classical music skaters.
On that note, Tim should find something with more flair, I think. He keeps skating to classical music (and even though it was a great skate) but it seems to me he should branch out to something maybe more contempo.
I was wondering throughout the comp - with so many talented singles skaters, and only so many spots on the podium, why wouldn't some of these singles turn to pairs? When you see someone like Amber hitting 3x3, placing 7-8 in the singles, and then top 3 pairs can't sometimes manage a clean triple...
Ok it's1 am on the east coast..
