    Watching the NBC Nightly News from Sochi and I love every time Brian Williams mentions Pussy Riot. I can feel he loves saying it.

    Yeah I think Kostner got robbed a bit and should be second, even if just based on the fact she had the more difficult combination. And I mean the old broad deserves it!

    Either way it's looking like a 3-horse race for the podium so should be interesting either way.

    omg just got done watching Yuna Kim. i swear i just stood there staring while she skated. I enjoyed the hell out of her short skate.

    I liked Polina, but to me she's still awkward. That'll go away with some more experience

    Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing Polina on the podium in 2018. She's wonderful. I think she and Yulia will be up there together - and they won't even be 20 yet. Sheesh.

    They showed a little of her warm-up beforehand, and she seemed to be floundering. Then, once her program started, she was flawless. Made me briefly wonder if she was participating in a little mind fucking for the dramaz, but that's probably too dangerous a game to play, even for her.

    Because she's so tall, with an endless pair of legs. Plus she always wears poufy skirts, so yeah, I see the Big Bird connection. Thank God she doesn't wear yellow.

    Read the headlines this morning - oh poor Mao. She must be devastated. To fall not just on your jump, but your most celebrated jump too. Someone keep her away from sharp objects. The US womens' placement does not surprise me in the least.

    Watching the ladies free skate live now. Lots of sliding across rink on yer backside moves so far. Lipinski and Weir are just awesome commentators - neither one holds anything back. They really call a spade a spade and it's been totally cool listening to them vs. the shit coverage NBC provides in the evenings.

    The top ladies all look very prepared. I swear though, the next skater who thinks it's a good idea to skate to "Rhapsody in Blue" or "Phantom" or "Bolero" is going to get their ears boxed by me. Love those scores, but it's way overdone and usually associated with someone else.

    Calling bullshit on Adelina's score. She was not flawless, did not deserve to be eight points ahead of Carolina. Skating while Russian indeed.

    Caro did very well,but she had a reserved program and she wanted to be safe rather than daring..Russian on the other hand gave it her all!
