    Congratulations to Joannie! Her "Firebird" program is one of my favorites. I would love to see a Joannie and BeBe skateoff.

    It was great to be there live. I almost cried, she was so wonderful. I hope she can do it again and again.

    Rochette was incredible. I don't think I've ever seen a Canadian ladies champion skate THAT well to win their title. Triple/triple combination that was flawless, plus all the other triples - and a triple sequence. Also the presentation is there - this program is stunning - particularly when skated like that. If she skates like that at Worlds, she is definitely a podium contender no matter how any of the other ladies skate. It was breathlessly exciting. Bravo!

    Joannie was wonderful ..... Loved the Firebird program, solid jumping, beautiful choreography. Triple, triple and nice sequence . I really, really hope she can do it again ....... at Worlds! She seemed so relaxed and confident.

    I hope I see a replay on TV so I can tape it. Wasn't expecting such a great moment in skating. Just AMAZING!! Congratulations Joannie

    Wow! That was amazing! Joanne is getting better and better ever after the World last year. That triple-triple was a beauty! So much speed in and out , and the position in the air and on the landing, just beautiful to watch. Love her jumps and her presentation is mature and lovely. Like her confidence on and off the ice. Expecting to see her on the podium this World!

    and much higher than Rochette's GP total scores:

    64.20 Arakawa NHK

    Interesting. Looks like inflated scores aren't going anywhere, even with this new system...

    P.S. Congrats to her BTW...

    Oh Boy!!!! I am so happy. I don't want to miss this tomorrow night!!! I will be glued to my set.

    I can't believe the little coverage CTV has given the Canadians. It's just awful. I have been waiting all week to see something!!!!

    Thanks for the great news!
