Come on Michelle fans, let's stand up, and give Michelle a standing ovation and round of applause!

So what if she is in third? So what if she had a bobble on her triple flip landing? So what if the Hungarian judge placed Michelle in fifth?

I am absolutely thrilled and proud of Michelle. The sole fact that Michelle glided onto the ice and completed the triple flip is outstanding. We should cheer for Michelle's determination and spirit to fight for the landing.

Let's go Michelle fans! Clap clap clap clap clap.......

I continue to believe and have faith that Michelle will skate gloriously in the freeskate. Perhaps the best we've ever witnessed yet.

So what if Michelle is in third? SO WHAT? Fear not, Michelle Kwan fans. Michelle has gotten better! Her practices have gone extremely well, as many reports say. She landed 6 triples in the qualifying rounds, along with the triple loop. She landed the triple flip, albeit a bobbly one as I have heard, in the SP. She can only get better. Especially since she is mad that the judges placed her so low even with a triple flip.

And so what if the Hungarian judge(who is crazy, BTW)placed her fifth? The rest of the judges were pretty much in line with the panel. So what if she's first in the skating order? It may make a difference in the marks, but if she does her best, that's all we can ask for. I'm hoping and praying that she will do a great job tomorrow, showing us the fighting spirit she showed in Salome.

Michelle may step on the ice tomorrow and begin skating the best program she has ever skated so far. I have faith, and a strong feeling that Michelle will skate so beautifully and flawlessly and exquisitely, that no matter what the judges do with her placement (frankly, I don't understand, and I no longer care) she will skate so marvellously and extraordinarily that no one single individual under the sun who watches her skate will doubt her abilities, love, dedication, and triumph! Go out there Michelle, and be glorious!

I am VERY proud of MK for doing a 3 flip in the SP, especially since she didn't try it all season, let alone for two years!
CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP!

ITA. I'm very proud of her about the flip.

A question:

What do you think would have happened if Michelle had used the toeloop and landed beautifully? As far as I can tell she didn't have any other problems and most reviews I read agreed she skated perfectly other than that.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad she went for the flip, just curious.

crack that whip
give the past the slip
step on the ice
open the judges' eyes
when a problem comes along
you must flip it
before the cream sits out too long
you must flip it
when something's going wrong
you must flip it

now whip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
try to detect it
it's not too late
to flip it
flip it good

when a good time turns around
you must flip it
you will never live it down
unless you flip it
no one gets away
until they flip it

i say whip it
whip it good
i say whip it
whip it good

crack that whip
let the others slip
leave the others behind
blow the judges' minds
when a problem comes along
you must flip it
before the cream sits out too long
you must flip it
when something's going wrong
you must flip it

now whip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
try to detect it
it's not too late
to whip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
try to detect it
it's not too late
to whip it
whip it good


gala, a Kwan DEVO-tee

Simply expressing my thoughts, not hoping to offend anyone.

"Fear not,
I am with you.
Be not dismayed,
I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
and help you."
Isaia 41, 10


From eprayer.com 's Daily inspiration:

"Today I will be God-centered. I will turn over my life to Him for protection and guidance. As I let go, I will more and more understand the power within me to attain all of my goals."
