Gracie Gold withdraws, so NBC delays airing the event for a week because who wants to watch if Gracieâ€™s not there? Hereâ€™s who did show up:
Duhamel & Radford get their 30 seconds of fame. Stolbova & Klimov and Sui & Han compete, but we didnâ€™t see it.
Weaver & Poje, Chock & Bates, and Papadakis & Cizeron medal. The Shibutanis donâ€™t.
Maxim Kovtun spins a web. The Phantom menace captures Takahito Mura and Yuzuru Hanyu. Sergei Voronov suits up. Tatsuki Machida makes a surprise announcement. Javier FernÃ¡ndez gets nervous.
Gracie Gold makes a withdrawal. Ashley Wagner comes out of the batterâ€™s box. Yulia Lipnitskaya should be Coming to America. Anna Pogorilaya jumps. Elena Radionova skates her (possible) age. Elizaveta Tuktamysheva fails to anger us.
We discuss a bunch of stuff we donâ€™t really know anything about. Carolina Kostnerâ€™s boyfriend walks a little too well. Javier and Miki Ando work on their posture. And are Terry, Tara, and Johnny even going to these competitions?
