Gazing at a Glorious Great Lakes sunset

I don't disagree about the lifts, if you're talking about the FS. I did say in my previous post that I thought CG/L showed plenty of command in their SP ... although I did use a parenthetic phrase between the words 'command' and 'in their SP.' So my wording may have caused confusion.^^ Thanks for the feedback, @skylark
You've made a valid point about Tim's injury. Someone else mentioned his strength training on another post... and maybe the injury is why it's not translating to the ice this season. At least not yet.
I have to disagree on the command aspect though. I thought some of the movement was slow and labored. I'm thinking of a couple of lift exits that looked like they were practically made at a standstill. Of course, all these lift exits look so much more complicated than in years past, so that may just be a function of mileage. One thing is for certain, US Pairs are interesting again.
You make a good point about the lift exits in the FS. I kept thinking that they just haven't worked on the lifts sufficiently this year, as they're working new things into the program overall, to develop their skating, transitions, etc. Your observation makes that more specific, and it makes sense. Anyway, yes, US Pairs has been shaken up, added to, taken away.
