Just as an aside - I attended one Sr. Men's practice. When Rohene Did his ending split position Tim looked at him and winced and laughed and then clapped. Thought that was a pretty accurate impresion of what we all think when he does that. Ouch and wow.

Zorba - Very entertaining program and with strong jumps. I have to assume something was downgraded or his levels on things were very low.

Freedom - Hand down and step out of axel. 4 sal looked 2 footed and maybe cheated.

Mishima - Fall on axel. trouble on flying camel/combo spin. For me this was a very dull progam and dull music.

The Firm - Scrapy landing on 3 lutz of combo. Nice 3 axel. Program did nothing for me.
Michael Weiss
La Donna de Mobile (Verdi) - Well, I never thought I would say it, but I really loved this program. The footworkwas brilliant and he skated so well to the music. What a revelation.
