I happened to watch the U.S. Figure Skating Nationals yesterday and really enjoyed seeing the pairs (I started watching late so missed the singles). I was mesmerized by the athleticism involved in this ice skating event! Some of the moves they do I couldn't even do on the floor of my living room! I thought it was quite spectacular and also enjoyed most of the music that went along with their routines. The two pairs I liked best came in second and fourth. I was rooting for the brother/sister team, Alex and Maia Shibutani, because they did part of their program to a Strauss Waltz that was beautiful! Hawayak and Baker was the other pair that I really liked a lot because not only were they doing impressive moves, but they looked like they were really enjoying it too!
