  1. I’m cheering like crazy too, Mad for Skating. Ksenia totally slayed (oh, and Fedor too). Can’t wait for the FP. I would love it if they headed to Euros and Worlds as Russia’s #1. I am gutted for K/S. They have had such bad luck and misfortune the last few seasons.

    I have to admit that seeing Morosov with his child bride in the kiss n’ cry is still eewwwww.

      You have just summarized everything I’ve felt this week in one comment.

    KSENIA IS HERE!!! FINALLY!!!
    Oh, and Fedor, nice to see you too. But SHE’S HERE!
    I totally need her shoes. She is so fabulous. You have no idea how much I’ve missed them. I just got done watching their short program and am just freaking out because it was clean!!! Praying for a clean free skate now!

    OK, I got that out of me, now I can sensibly look at the rest of this stuff. Well, sort of…

      Sorry for sounding so crazy there. I’m just really excited because I’ve been waiting to see them ALL YEAR!

        And Ksenia is smiling even during the program!That was fantastic to see them again and they look so fresh!

          They are looking so strong right now! The program is the exact opposite of last year’s, it’s almost like watching two different couples. But I like what I’m seeing so far.

      • I’m intrigued what they have for the free program!
