By now, it should be needless to say that NBC hardly showed any of this competition, as is their custom. This week, however, we give thanks for the paucity.
Savchenko & Szolkowy win. Bazarova & Larionov stay grounded. Moore-Towers & Moscovitch do something or other. Davis & Brubaker learn on the ice. Scimeca & Knierim go for 20.
Davis & White get the full court press. Bobrova & Soloviev take us back. Weaver & Poje bring us back. Chock & Bates get respect.
Julia Lipnitskaia leaps. Carolina Kostner distracts. Mirai Nagasu doesn’t have a good time. Elizaveta Tuktamysheva gets frogged. Agnes Zawadzki takes it slow.
Maxim Kovtun quads it out. Artur Gachinski gets no press while Konstantin Menshov does. Javier Fernández hits. Richard Dornbush surprises. Tatsuki Machida flies out of nowhere. And Joshua Farris withdraws while Evgeni Plushenko goes to Latvia.
And the results from Sectionals give us pause.
