  •  I would but I pulled a kishik (5+ / 0-)

    and fell asleep last night during the men's short program. I'll have to rewind and watch it again but this time with my eyes open.

    I did watch the pairs short program and the Russians were amazing! They skated with a style and speed that you used to see prior to the new rules. They still incorporated all the extra point-generating moves but you would have been none-the-wiser. It was fantastic. Now so many of the pairs teams skate so impossibly slow and it all seems so clunky and cumbersome in their obvious attempts to gain points.

    The guy from Canada had problems lifting his partner to the point I now fear for her safety! He needs to muscle up big time or find a much lighter-weight female to fling and toss around the ice. She is either astonishingly brave or naively trusting and unbelievably stupid to be skating with this dude.

        I now have two shows that reliably put me to sleep; Love It or List It and figure skating. I can usually make it through Project Runway but I often have to wait until Friday to watch it because I record the later rerun instead of the original airing.
