    On one of the other boards I frequent they call it the 'skating while Russian' bonus.

    But how great, after 5 trips to the olympics and 3 partners, The Gold! I wonder what was going through her 2nd partner's mind as he watched his former partner win the gold while his coached pair Tarasova/Morozov imploded.

    Men's Short program tonight. Wonder how Nathan will do after what happened with the team event. Yuzuru is competing after being off ice for 2+ months. Shoma, Vincent, Adam...Kolyada too. They need to be clean. The pairs gold came down to who fucked up the least.

    Aljona is the queen goddess supreme, what an amazing achievement. She's never been my favourite aesthetically, but damn if I didn't want her to win so badly. She deserves that OGM.

    Talk about willing your way into Gold. I even think someone on GR called it.

    I don't like that you can skate a less complicated routine beautifully and cleanly and score way less than if you skate a more difficult routine that is not as aesthetically pleasing and fall. It's all about the jumps now.

    Yes, a fully rotated triple that the skater falls on is scored higher than a clean double of the same jump.

    Can you imagine Dorothy Hamill or Peggy Fleming trying to win a gold now?

    I missed the mens' short program last night - where can I catch up? Do I even want to? I hear that the US men aren't doing so well. Or the Russians.
