Staples Center looks nearly full

Staples_300As it gets close to the time for the first U.S. skater, Alissa Czisny, to take the ice, Staples Center looks nearly full. And there are a lot of people holding tightly to South Korean flags. This is going to be almost a hometown crowd for short program leader Kim Yu-Na.

Plus there's a line five deep waiting for autographs from men's champion Evan Lysacek and his coach Frank Carroll. The folks trying to order fresh pasta from the nearby food stand are having trouble getting their hot plates out of the crowd without causing sauce disasters.
