    MLB and MLBPA have a deal

    I'm hoping they get eliminated in the first round.

    Wow. The Pairs erasure here is real :) This competition was a real treat. The Americans are in 6th and 7th, and skated strong performances, and are only 10 points out of the lead. In 2018, the American team was 17 points out of first and in 14th place, and these programs would have been 10th...

    For sure. Like I said spoiled above, if I'm Valiyeva, I give Brian Orser a call and get the fuck out of there like Medvedeva did. But this is Mother Russia, and the three of them are basically enslaved athletes.

    She's upset she didn't win. She thought she deserved to win and that she was going to win, and insanely jealous that Shcherbakova and Valiyeva get all the press and the medals at the senior level, because she dominated as a junior.

    This or Mikaela Shiffrin wiping out every time her skis touched snow. Nathan Chen's performance and even Papadakis/Cizeron's performance are distant memories now after this. I am secretly enjoying that every Russian skater is beyond pissed right now, but I'm glad Shcherbakova won. But I was...

    No kidding. But remember: Eteri Tutberidze coaches *all three of them*. I mean, shit, at least divide and conquer and provide some presence for each of them.

    So in summary, what's happening here: * Valiyeva is being hounded by her coaches and handlers. * Trusova is behaving like a spoiled brat, doesn't want to go to the medal ceremony, says she doesn't want to skate ever again, EVERYBODY GETS THE GOLD BUT ME. * Sakamoto is beside herself with joy. *...

    Valiyeva's skate was sloppy and messy. Stay tuned. The drama is just beginning here.

    What a magnificent skate from Shchberkaova! She delivered the technical goods, and a FLAWLESS free skate. She doesn't win the free skate because, well, she didn't land 5 quads, but she deserved every bit of those program components, and right now, deserves to be ahead of Trusova overall. This...

    Kaori Sakamoto delivered a BEAUTIFUL free skate. She would have won the Olympics four years ago with this skate. She delivered warmth, elegance, and athleticism too, though her program wasn't nearly as difficult as the Russians'. She knows what she's capable of and delivered it the best she...

    Trusova dared to skate a program few MEN dare to skate. She's an incredibly powerful skater, but she has ZERO performance chops. You can admire her skating, but you're never going to feel anything from it. She's cold, robotic, and the Quad Queen. She was WILDLY overmarked on her program...

    Okay, everybody. Here come the Russians. Strap in. It's about to get REALLY interesting.

    Agreed on the components. Vastly undermarked, and we'll see a skater later who does nothing between jumps, a la Plushenko, and is WILDLY overmarked in the program components, and I think Tara will express disbelief.

    Alysa Liu did her job, for sure but made some mistakes: * 3Axel was downgraded and had a negative grade of execution, and would have been far better off doing a clean 2Axel * The 3Lutz/3Toe combo didn't get the bonus because she began it one second before the halfway point of the program...
