The event looks like it will be every ounce as grueling as last year's
was.  But in contrast to last year's in Japan, when basically everyone
except the Chinese pair had crossed several time zones to get there,
this year the North Americans will have an advantage in a relative
lack of jet lag.  Someone remind me why competition isn't stretched
out to, say, *three* days, so that no one has to compete more than
once per day?

Exactly. I've been wondering why no one else has said this. Friday sounds pretty grueling for the fans
who are just sitting there. ;)

Anyone who's training in N.A. (e.g. B & S, Yags, Honda) will too.

Someone remind me why they HAVE to have two LPs period. Why not just a short and a long?
Oh, yeah--television.  Except the ISU still hasn't figured out that U.S. TV, for one, isn't devoting any
more hours to it then they would if everyone only skated twice.  ABC even cut out the bronze medalists'
final round, despite the fact that two Americans took 3rd in singles. Sheesh.

There is probably zero chance we'll see the short programs this year.
