Every season there's at least one competition where the judging raises eyebrows. Last year it was Mao Asada's controversial win over Akiko Suzuki at NHK; this year it's the judging at Rostelecom Cup. Terrible judging...just terrible...

The penultimate event of the Grand Prix season did not disappoint. With a mini rivalry/feud brewing and trips to the Grand Prix Final on the line, the top competitors brought their "A" game.

And just like that we're already in the second half of the Grand Prix season. NHK Trophy is always a big deal because Japan is where figure skating is the most popular. It's the most exciting place to skate and, thankfully, NHK didn't disappoint this year...at least not too much.

We've seen some good skating so far this season so, naturally, we were due for a splatfest. Cup of China was a very disappointing competition for everyone but the winner...

Please forgive me if this review rapidly descends into incoherent babbling. I spent 18 of the last 48 hours on a bus and I'm running off of only a few hours of sleep. I enjoyed my lightning fast mini vacay to Orlando (yay Disney World!) but it's time to get back to business. I was able to watch the ladies SP on Friday but I had to check my phone while waiting on the fireworks show at Epcot to see who won the event. So, here's my catch-up review...

I spent nearly my entire weekend watching skating and I have to say I enjoyed all of it! Men, pairs, ice dance and, of course, the ladies...it was an excellent competition across the board. As always, I have to take a look back at the ladies and give my thoughts on this Olympic season Grand Prix opener.
