I'm glad you're there!!
I'm glad you're there!!
I'm disappointed that there is no Eurosport audio coverage, apparently for the Men's QR. Oh well, I'm up so just staring at the ISU results page and pulling up old score sheets. Joubert must have taken a fall - wonder what it was? His score is about 15 points below his personal best.
Looks like something must have happened to Honda too. Not a great start. Wonder if Plush will skate, or if the *rumor* is true.
i wonder also. I read on another board that Takeshi twisted his leg and had to be carried off. OUCH
Not sure if CCTV5 is offering coverage or not. I keep trying to load it and see since I can't read Chinese. But...it keeps defautling to Windows Media Player and I heard it works better with Real Player. I have Real Player too but can't figure out how to try to make it load there. I'm such a techno idiot.
Anyway, are you also following along at FSU, or another board? I'm tracking on FSU and also watching here in case Rosaleen checks in.
Keep the coffee comin'!!
CCTV is showing women's basketball.
Welcome to Goldenskate!! Are you the person who helped with the Russian TV Online tips at FSU? If so, thanks! I sure wish there was some coverage of these Q-Rounds, but it will be fun to watch the pairs later. Since I can't figure out how to get CCTV5 to work, I'm secretly glad I'm not missing anything.
doggygirl I tried that link and it shut down my internet. lol now I have to set up all my windows again. that link must be too strong for my laptop.
Sorry about that!!! Hope everything starts back up OK!
ooh can't believe how quickly worlds has come around!!
Must check out the Eurosport schedule so I know what days to work from home
I Am the one user that posted the russian tv online information on the forum of fsu Braulio
Just want it to let you know
Oh and also if you want to play the links of cctv5 with real player all you need to do is to copy and paste the url direction of each of one link and paste on the "Open" tab on real player, click enter and wait until it cames on
remember, I'm Braulio ok? enjoy
Oops - I'm sorry I confused you screen name with someone else. Thanks for the help with the Russian on-line thing. My fingers are crossed that it will work well today.
Also, thanks a MILLION for the tip on CCTV5 and Real Player. I'm hoping maybe one of our friends here that are fluent in Chinese might be able to figure out the schedule of what they are televising and when. (HINT!!)
Thanks and enjoy the competition! And Welcome to Goldenskate!
Well, first, kudos to Rosaleen, I would not be able to multitask as she does.....
Now, that group B is done.....I think the results are shaping up interestingly to say the least.
First, Honda should either take care of his injuries, or retire. After being out a full year, this is not how you envision to come back.
Then, Stephane Lambiel ......wow, 2 quads and 7 triples in qualies, topping his best result with 16 points ??
While Joubert had an OK skate which keeps him in the hunt, I am displeased with Jeffrey's effort, without a solid 3 axel, I am sorry, no top 6 finish for him!.
Tim Goebel didn't get a lot of respect from the judges, that is for sure, he will need a big come back.
Once again, thanks Rosaleen
Doggygirl I'm sorry I wasn't up to hang out with you on the boards. I took an last night Ambien so I could sleep as I have to teach this a.m. So when I arose, I first looked the scores on Ice Calc and just now Rosaleen's report. I am shocked (but very happy) to see Lambiel pull out so far ahead in front of Yagbert. But so sad for Tim. I did not expect him to do really well and did not place him on my top six list for the final competition result but 9th in the Q round?!? And Evan. Top three? Wow. Actually Tim's PCS scores are slightly higher than Evan's but his tech are not good.
Thanks for the comments.
Great for Stephane. Hope they can sort out the time-keeping without damaging the program.
Can't wait to see it.
