    Looks like it's going to be a match between the U.S. and Canada in hockey for both men and women.

    Anyone else watching the figure skating ice dance? Everyone's looking pretty good so far. Team USA did well with Davis/White and Belbin/Agosto.

    The compulsories don't lend themselves to the ridiculous costumes, which is what I'm waiting to see. It's all been classy so far, but the blue eyeshadow is imminent.

    I watched them-everyone seemed great!
    Liked Canadas lady costume the best. Loved that deep red.

    I didn't know she was Evan Lysacek's ex. Also she has been rooming with Johnny because he couldn't stand rooming with Evan. Bit of trivia.

    I love the pairing of Davis/White. I'm amazed that they've been skating together since childhood. 13 years is longer than a lot of marriages.

    Oksana Domina is so elegant. Her name sounds like a Bond villainess. love it.

    Ice dancing is my favorite event, so I watched last night and will be watching on Sunday and Monday. I love the costumes and ridiculous facial expressions.

    I'm a big Torville and Dean fan, so I love Ice Dancing. My husband does not like it because it's not nearly as spectacular as the Pairs are in his opinion. I see it more as ballroom dancing on ice and I love watching their footwork.

    She has a beautiful face and is very talented, but I do get a snoot vibe off her. Ben Agosto seems like he has a great personality, though.

    I think Meryl Davis is at least as beautiful as Tanith, and she seems a bit more likable - to me, at least.

    Meryl Davis looks really small and muscular - I just wish she didn't sound like she's just inhaled helium.

    I'm not as into ice dancing as I am the men's, women's and pairs competition. There's something about ice dancing that makes it look, I don't know, not very athletic or overdramatic instead of graceful. Something. And I know it's probably just as difficult if not more difficult than pairs - you have to synch a lot of moves in order to not kick each other in the groin for 4 minutes. I think some of it is everyone HAVING to do the SAME DAMN THING - this year, it's tango romantica which must have been fun to practice for Kerr & Kerr (brother & sister).
