Oh, what to say about last night's Skating With Celebrities?

Well, first of all - Go, Bruce Jenner! Show that cheating Jillian Barbieri that she ain't all that!

Second: Loyd Eisler - Dude, learn to add up numbers in your head. Then learn to remember them and compare them to other numbers. Less Than/More Than, I'm confident the Canadian School System covered that in first grade, just like here.

Third: Debbie Gibson and Kurt Browning - Wha' happened? Your "Grease" program of last week was so good! Your Motown program of this week was very, very lame.

Fourth: So Todd Bridges falling down once last week was enough to get him bounced, but Kristy Swanson falling twice this week still put them ahead of Kurt and Debbie? (Granted, Kurt and Debbie were very, very lame; see above).

And speaking of falls, was it just me, or did anyone else think it was the pro skaters that were the screw-ups this week?

Nancy Kerrigan stumbled on her "Throw" Axel (is it really a Throw when the girl does an Axel while the guy briefly brushes his hands along her hip and shoulder; oh, and I'd have cut points for ripping off a Brausseur and Eisler routine, too), Tai almost lost the edge on her Waltz Jump, and John Zimmerman totally went down on his Arabian.

I realize that the skaters are so busy trying to facilitate their partners that they lose focus on their own tricks, but, remember, guys, the score is for the team as a whole. And if you don't look good, how do you think that makes your partners look?

    I thoroughly enjoy your website!

    Honestly, I think Tai & Bruce are pretty much the worst. It would help if Bruce weren't working so hard to look younger than he is.

    Definitely agree on the subject of the pros falling down on the job quite literally last week.

    Kurt and Debbie's performance really lacked any energy.

    And what is with Lloyd and Kirsty? Neither one of them seemed to be able to keep the numbers in their head. And Kirsty was really snippy when she thought she lost.

    I thought Bruce looked a lot better out there this week. He didn't seem nearly as stiff.

    Thanks you for the kind words about the blog - I'm having a lot of fun doing it.

    And Mary, yeah, what was that with Kristy's "I don't have anything to say right now." I guess they don't teach good sportsmanship in acting school...
