Michelle should be practicing right now. Can't wait for the reports!

Lets all remember that Michelle loves to compete. I think the position she's in now will only make her competitive fire burn stronger.

Go Michelle. I'll be sending positive thoughts to you all day. Just skate from the heart, skate for the audience and enjoy yourself. That's what's most important.

Best wishes.

i didnt know about the chicken thing until i read it now. But I had General Tsao Chicken for lunch today, actually, i ordered DOUBLED amount GT chicken. Must be a good sign!!!!!!!! (boy they were good. also had tofu cake with shrimp inside last night, extra good omen)

OO.. speaking of signs, on Thursday night, we were supposed to have Chicken as the main course for dinner, but then the chicken place was closed! Must be why MK had a wonky landing on her axel. LOL

Is it me or is time just seem to be creeping? I'm trying to keep calm and stay positive for Michelle. So I'm just gonna pull myself away from my computer and do something to take my mind off of skating. Guess I better clean my room-- at least do something to stay calm.
Sorry for rambling-- I just don't know what to do with myself! Anyways, I wanna say good luck to Michelle tonight and I hope she skates with passion, fire, inspiration and lots of feeling! Light 'em up Michelle!!!!!!! :RP :LP :TOS

I have literally wasted the entire day over this. I can't get anything done...I have a ton of paperwork to complete, dishes to do, vacuuming, etc....I am just hanging around in some kind of awful stupor, totally unable to initiate any form of task completion because I am so wrapped up in tonight!!!

I ate turkey...does that count? =)

GO MICHELLE!!!!!!!

zi am majorly freaking out! Won't tell ya'all what my feelings are regarding tonite but I've done somthing today I've never done before--participated in a predictions thread (actually a couple). I seriously hoping I will have to eat my words! Of the four events at Nats 3 new champs have been nmaed, here's wishing the trend doesn't continue!

I thought this started at 8 p.m. Eastern, which would mean it just started 15 minutes ago. But I am probably wrong about that.

Anyway, I and feeling pretty calm too, just like last year. It's weird, and I don't know if it's a good sign or just that my brain has been completely fried. I'll take it either way.

GO MICHELLE!! BRING IT, BABY!!!

kgrama
January 10th, 2004, 03:18 PM
Here are my predictions....I am not wishing for anyone to have a bad performance, but this is my gut feeling:

Sasha -- one fall, and one two-footed landing.
Michelle -- either one unstable landing, or one jump cut down to a double.
Jenny -- cut a triple-triple down to a triple-double, but otherwise great.

I don't normally make predictions, but that's just what my gut feeling is.

Now if you were the judge, and the above occurred, how would you place people? Keep in mind that Sasha has one more jump than Michelle.

I would do: 1)Michelle 2)Jenny 3)Sasha That's not to imply that jumps are the only thing that counts, because that certainly is not the case.

I would love my gut to be wrong and to see everyone skate flawlessly!!!! =)

All I day I felt the same I way I felt b/f SLC 2002 LP. But NOW I feel good. This is not the same MK of 2 years ago. I also have to add that I said I wouldn't read any posts this afternoon/evening in an attempt to keep sane. If stuck to that, but now I'll read the results thread. So for my sanity, please leave all negative thoughts off this thread. Please!!

She fell on one of the triples and stumbled out of another. Other than that pretty good...five clean triples. If Michelle skates clean, I have to think she has it.

As badly as I want Michelle to win, I really wanted to see Sasha skate cleanly....she has a lot of talent, and she has worked very hard too. I want to see her skate two solid performances in a row; it would do so much for her confidence.

Only one judge gave a 6, the rest were 5.8's. Still plenty of room for Kwan.

kwancierto de aranjuez

>: What?!?

Maybe Michelle should fall too so she can get a 6.0 in presentation!

A fall and to get a 6.0 in presentation? Ridiculous! I agree that a fall would disrupt presentation! I'm dumfounded!

GO Michelle!

jenjehay
January 10th, 2004, 05:16 PM
I also think the 6.0 is too high. With the fall and rough landing (2-footed?) on another jump, the flow was simply not there.

mixedmadness
January 10th, 2004, 05:16 PM
she landed everything she did better than usual but a 6.0 is uncalled for, c'mon now. still it was around a 5.7 for tech and i think 5.8 is about right for presentation. she had great spins and the choreography was well constructed

kwancierto de aranjuez
January 10th, 2004, 05:17 PM

what a scam. i didn't like it when Michelle got a 6.0 when she fell but at least she had a 3/3 and 6 triples.

No wonder they say skating isn't a sport.

Janice
January 10th, 2004, 05:18 PM
Giving a skater a six with a fall is not out of the realm of possibility if the performance rated it. Even without the fall, that lackluster skate did not deserve a 6. 5.8, maybe.

WAHHH
January 10th, 2004, 05:23 PM
that 6.0 judge also gave a 5.5 for tech...he just liked the program enough to want to give a 6.0, so he lowered her tech

Dick didn't like the 6.0

lavender
January 10th, 2004, 05:23 PM
You know it was her overall skate. The jumps she landed were good but she was kind of boring and lackluster. She didn't have any spark so in that I really don't get the 6.0

I love Angela, but is anyone as sick as I am of watching her give up? I mean, she doesn't even try after she makes a mistake. One thing I will give Sasha is that she does seem to fight back after a mistake. Angela just throws it away - it makes me so sad - and angry.

Sam18q
January 10th, 2004, 05:25 PM
Hopefully this can take some pressure off Michelle. If she feels that they are handing the gold to Sasha, she may just relax, loosen up and skate as if there is nothing to lose anymore.

kwancierto de aranjuez
January 10th, 2004, 05:26 PM
6.0 still means perfection doesn't it. How can you have perfect presentation when one of the elements you are presenting is not perfect.

I don't care whether the judge gave Sasha a low score in the technical portion. It can't be a 6.0 if it is not perfection. The judge needs to judge correctly and not use the presentaion mark to make his opinion.

Alright people, I"ll be thinking of michelle while I drive to my friends house to watch TV. :( Got no TV in school's apartment)


P.S. If Michelle is UP and someone watching or reading these notes right now knows she skated perfect. PLEASE CALL ME and let me know because I will be driving for the next 20 min to catch the TV at 8 here in west coast and probably won't be able to read it until 20 - 30 min later, which I REALLY wanna to know how she did.

chrisop
January 10th, 2004, 05:28 PM
I think that judge who awarded the 6.0 is more than willing to present to Sasha the crown on a golden platter without the need to watch her skate at all! This doesn't bode well for Michelle. :\

"Am I the only one here who thought Tosca was an absolute bore?"

NO WAY! I was on the edge of my seat.... woah was I!!!!! When she won, it was THAT MUCH sweeter! I was in tears afterwards! I NEVER lost faith for one second. She may not have all those flexible "look at me" posing moves and super difficult jumps like a 3/3 (yet) but she OWNED Atlanta tonight. A lot of people gave up because Sasha had a wonderful short program. Nah, she has shown them all that the Reign of Kwan has not left....! WAY TO GO MK! YOU RACH! TOSCA! TOSCA! TOSCA! Girl, you made us proud!

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! Michelle was absolutely brillant! Today while everyone else was eating chicken-- my neice (who watched and cheered with me, btw) both ate fish filet sandwiches from McDonalds! My niece said that next would should both eat fish again.For the first time ever (well since 98 nationals) I was kinda calm. I was like, "Whatever happens, happens. She always has worlds--ya know." But I was talking out loud to her the entire time she was skating. Telling her to stay focused and not to overthink and to keep up the energy. Stuff like that. Then when she finished my niece and I were near tears with happiness for Michelle!
Y'all gonna think I'm crazy but I had a couple of visions of her in the k&c area smiling the biggest smile I hadn't seen in a while. But I didn't say anything to anyone cuz I was afraid I'd jinx her and plus y'all would think I was nuttier than a fruit cake! :lol
Anyways, I know I'm not saying anything worthwhile but hell, I'm just really glad for Michelle. Congats to both Michelle and Jenny! Truly awesome!!!!! :TOS :CHO

I can't belive I missed her skate. I sure hope that they do show it again tomorrow on the Exhibiton. I am so happy for her.

From What I have read here on the board & from What Dick & Peggy were saying. She was even better than 1998 when she had all those 6.0's


GREAT JOB MIHCELLE, WELL DONE.:TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS

Does anyone know when they'll replay Nationals on TV? Would you believe that there was a glitch in my taping in the middle and so I missed all of the Ladies LP? :(

Graciesfriend called me during the presentation ceremony and was just beside herself. Just sheer perfection, and that's all. She said the dress is drop-dead, unbelievely, magnificently GORGEOUS!! She does not usually gush, and let me tell you, she gushed!!

I literally was sobbing so hard during her skate that I had to pause the PVR just to catch my breath. I still cannot believe that actually happened.

Okay, gotta go watch again and again.

Oh yeah, YEA FOR JENNY! I am thrilled that she got the bronze. WOO-HOO!!

I can't believe what we saw...actually, I CAN believe it, and I also believe Michelle will never cease to amaze us! It should not be possible! She just silently proves her critics and doubters wrong. I was so calm, thinking I was just gonna enjoy the evening and whatever happens...After seeing Sasha skate, even with her two mistakes, I still was thinking the judges would pick her and thinking I wish I could be moved even a fraction as much as Michelle moves us all. I did enjoy Sasha tonite, I also enjoyed Jenny...more! But Michelle...no words. I think even if Sasha had skated clean, even with 3 combos and 7 triples, Michelle still had more emotion, more expression and just was...perfect...!! WOW. I wish I checked the damn VCR to make sure it actually taped... I'll just have to waut til someone puts this performance in a collection because it sure was on for the ages!!!

Watch out WORLD'S...consider yourselves on Kwannotice!

:TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS :TOS 6.0's!!

I am so happy she is happy! This is the first time I've seen Tosca and haven't been able to digest it. Besides my 3 1/2 yr old wouldn't go to bed. (He wanted to watch figure skating.) It's hard to concentrate. But yes. I am so psyched for her. She is an :angel .
