That was exciting! 18 years! Worth it for the gold.

Did you see Tamara chew out the Russian lady? The girl leaves her home country of Japan moves to Russia and has a bad olympics and Tamara blows up at her...... just because for the first time in a gazillion years they didn't medal in pair.. oh darn somebody hand me a hanky.
There must be tremendous pressure on that girl. I can't imagine leaving my country just to train with the best and then go home empty handed. All of the skaters have made huge sacrifices but leaving Japan and becoming a Russian citizen has to be up there with one of the biggest.
AND in 4 years I hope our pairs team will win.. my Chinese couple won and I'm glad but our team looked pretty darn good too (16 year old chick with blond hair) and it's time for us to get back in the mix.
I don't normally get into mens figure skating but I'm excited this year, I so want our guys to beat the nose. I can not stand that egotistical butt ugly snot quad hopping grasshopper Evgeni Plushenko. I can't get used to Russia being called THE Russian Federation.. I keep waiting for Star Wars music to come on..
The ladies' will probably be a splatfest, as usual.
I'm personally rooting for Evan Lysacek, he's our hometown boy plus he doesn't get nearly as much press as Weir, but has been skating well this year.
Last night was the first time I cried for an Olympic win. I was so happy for the Chinese couple who won the pairs figure skating.
Are they all falling because the tricks are harder?? I've never seen so many falls in ice skating before.
