    Thanks Rosaleen. Glad to hear from you that Pang/Tong doing so well in SP. But why it is diff from EuroSport? I guess I like to hear what your say. But can't dissmiss what EuroSport...

    "
    CHN Pang / Tong Start 5
    Notes Music: All I ask of You from Phantom - Webber / her in red shading to white at hem him in white shirt & red pants / sbs 3t great sync / thr 3lhuge huge and landed right on the crescendo of the music / 2tw is lateral and high and again caught right on beat of music / sbs spins go to inside edge sit in great sync / true lasso to start with twist out covers good ice / pair spin maintains good speed and centering - nice pos / spirals again use music perfectly and have lovely shapes to them / bids starts with her holding foot in front / perfectly skated program - just lovely and right with the music all the time - can't find any fault with that program (even if I wanted to)
    "

    " EuroSport
    17:46 Pang and Tong finese was superb, Tong looks relaxed... the marks are published: 35.05 for technical merit; 28.97 for program component for a total points total of 64.02 to lead by just over nine marks ahead of the American pair Rena Inoue and John Baldwin Jr...

    17:45 Pang and Tong were very good, but the question remains was it good enough? The triples toes were good, but didn't have the elevation; the side-by-side spins were out of synch and may mean their technical mark is pinned down...

    17:42 The 25-year-olds start with side-by-side triple toes, but their unison isn't great; a monster of a throw-triple loop; a split double-twist is excellent...

    Either of us could be making a mistake and they may have been out of sync at a point when I looked down for a second and missed it. Neither of us are perfect.

    You are the best! Most detailed pbp I've read so far.

    Doggygirl, thanks for posting the russian tv online link. It is great to see the programs live.

    I agree that T&M were spectacular. Z&Z were the best I have seen them, and deserve to be ahead of P&T. I was hoping there would be no deductions through the whole event, but that Bulgarian team's fall on the 2tw was strange, and their Louis XIV costumes did not match the music.

    I cannot wait to see them on CBC tonight....
    Beating Shen/Zhao on TES is not an easy task IMO....

    I wouldn't have ever known about it if he/ she hadn't posted it on FSU.

    Mean time, I love seeing all the teams - not just the top teams. And the way it's going with US TV coverage, any SP's at all!! That being said, I didn't realize those were Louis the XIV costumes. Hey - St. Patrick's day is this week after all. (OK, I'm a snot about the Rusty Hanger awards!)

    I am so happy for Tanya and Maxim! Their program was just wonderful and it's really great that they got to show it infront of their home crowd.

    Good Luck to them in the FP!

    Cannot believe that Pe&Ti are ahead of S&Z!!! WOW!!!!! I understand they got a lot of crowd support; would love to hear from anyone who has seen the comp as to how fair the placement is.

    Slightly bummed for O&S. In the past this season they've been able to be ahead of Z&Z and P&T in the short.

    What a great pairs event this was! It was great to see everyone in the top 10 skate clean for the most part, except for Craig Buntin's step out and almost everyone's poor unison on the SBS spins

    I thought Shen and Zhao had the best choreography and interpretationin the SP. I LOVED Zagorska and Siudek's skating. They have such a clean, straightforward style, and they show great affection for each other on the ice. Hopefully the score sheets will show that they got the highest lift GOE of the night.

    Obertas and Slavnov keep improving in every performance I see. They have great energy and charisma, but it seems like it may be a dues-paying year for them. If they finish out of the top 5, hopefully it will motivate them to improve their polish to overtake the Chinese at the Olympics. This was the first I remember seeing of Wakamatsu and Fecteau, and they had great extension and line. The Germans Savchenko and Szolkowy had great flow over the ice and I loved seeing Ingo Steuer nervously pacing behind the boards during their skate.

    The judging seemed fair to me. I'm not sure how I feel about Petrova and Tikhonov being ahead of S&Z, because I find P&T's skating snooze-inducing (emphasis on the zzzzzz) but S&Z were conservative with small mistakes. I don't see P&T staying in 2nd, but they took full advantage of the home crowd's enthusiasm, so maybe that will help them with their stamina in the LP
