I think we all need to accept that there are two competitions at the Olympics. One for gold between P/C and S/K and then one for bronze which I think is a far more interesting battle.
I feel that has been the way for many many Olympics. Two teams battle for gold, everyone else for bronze.

Free Dance is gonna be interesting now! But I have got to sleep, so please cheer for Amber and the others in my absence.

I really like the dance, except for a section in the middle where the music sort of drones for me. I especially like the duh part.

Wow scores closer than I expected. I thought Madison got a bit wide on the pattern along the end boards. I will be curious to see the protocols...

I think it would be great if there was more of a battle for gold (more teams) but unless S/K have some kind of meltdown I can't see them not at least getting the silver. More interesting to me is that Nikita should have four ID medals after the Olympics. That puts him in the same conversation piece as V/M.

I'm always more comfortable with I accept things I'm not happy about. But in the end ID has always been like that for me. My favourites are almost never the top teams.
ermm... yeah... we are very different on that front :) though many of my faves don't get the same kind of love from the judges they get from me... that's why i love them even more...

i wouldn't go that far... especially if they do not end up winning an Ice dance GOLD. I also feel that if we put all the teams together, with the kind of scoring we see right now, C/B being so close to S/K, maybe that H/D are actually ahead of S/K and that would mean.. gold is P/C let everyone else fight for the two other spots...

Well.. I was a big Hubble and Donahue fan until they subjected me to too many bad programs and now I don't feel anything special when I watch them skate. Smart and Diaz might just dig themselves out of the hole they dug with me for the Natural woman and Beatles programs combined with a bad OD a few years ago but I'm still on the fence.

I want P/C to win. I like their programs this year.

About Nikita I was talking number of medals. 4 and V/M have 5 (right?). I don't think anyone else has 4 ID medals do they?

V/M have 5 medals indeed, 3 golds (2 ID 1 team) and 2 silvers (1 ID 1 team)

and this is an unpopular opinion for myself as I have never been a huge fan but I am also thinking that P/C should win based on what I have seen so far... but for the other medals.. not sure...

If I have to predict it now I'm saying
P/C, S/K and H/D
(which is kind of a safe set of choices but ID is usually the most predictable)

I just can't see anyone even touching Russia for the gold. I'm more interested in who they choose than if they win (because they will). I figure the US is a lock for the silver (baring a Nathan meltdown) but the most interesting competition will be for bronze. I'm am rooting for Japan and Italy personally and will be happy if either win.

I think it will come down to who hits their levels and has that little spark on the day of the event
