    The talk of the skating world this weekend is the Grand Prix Final & this accident by American pairs skaters Ashley Cain & Tim Leduc. Viewer discretion advised.

    They should've stopped it. No matter that as a competitor she wanted to continue. It was no different than an NFL player being knocked unconcious and coming back in the next play. She was still staggering after their program finished!

    James and Cipres have matured so much! They were not skating at this level the last time I saw them. Wow.

    When I hear Clair de Lune all I see is the end of Oceans 11. There are a couple of female Japanese skaters that I really like. I think this young woman is technically sound but has very little personality on the ice.

    The women's long program ended up being something quite extraordinary! I don't want to be a spoiler in case folks haven't watched it yet, but... a star is born!

    A star is born indeed. Very exciting.

    Now, the 2nd and 3rd place? They got it wrong. The skater who came in 3rd had a significantly better overall artistic performance and was very deserving of the silver medal.

    Meanwhile, I have never seen Mikhail Kolyada skate well. To have a 10-point lead going into the free skate but finish fifth overall is a disaster. He hurt his wrist on his second fall, too.

    Having a 13 year old stepson puts into perspective how impressive her accomplishment is.

    Jason Brown had a very nice performance. Also looks great, more like an adult than a kid now.

    Nathan Chen was WOW. Like see if you can catch it online kind of WOW if you missed it.

    He was cute before, but he looks so much better, and more mature without the ponytail.

    Nathan Chen was the best performer and deserved the Gold but is it heresy to say I was a bit underwhelmed? I was shocked to hear Tara exclaim that Chen "Is a god!" when the program was over.

    Of course my favorite part, ice dancing, got short shrift on the NBC broadcast but the Gold Medalists in that category deserved it. The couple that danced to "Fever" would've won it in my mind until they ended with Elvis singing "Hunk of Burning Love" or whatever the real name of that one is. The transition from "Fever" to that was jarring.

    I thought Nathan had a fantastic performance. Was it the most moving performance ever? No, not for me. I've been more moved by others. But Nathan's was still very artistic, and I liked this style for him, and the technical was nearly flawless and so overall, it felt like perfection from him. If his artistry wasn't as developed, I'd take more issue with Tara's exclamation, but I think if Nathan skates like this, it is very difficult to see him losing to anyone no matter what they throw out unless they start landing as many easy quads as he does. But Tara could still tone it down, he did blow the Olympics just last season so let's not overstate things too much just yet.

    For ice skating, in the past at least, ratings are not as good as the others unless there's been a better known pairing, and with the Shib Twins sitting out this season, I'm guessing that made it an easy call to turf it to NBC Sports. Sounds like it was good, I'm out of town in a hotel so I couldn't watch anything on that channel.
