LAist watched the women's figure skating short program last night on the Olympics, and we were duly impressed by the OC's Sasha Cohen. And from the difficulty we're having accessing her website this morning, a lot of others probably were, too. She oozed confidence and dazzled the judges, giving her a .03 lead over Russia's Irina Slutskaya. Thursday's finals should be interesting.

We're giving the gold edge to Cohen, natch, especially since it looks like she has protection against the Evil Eye.
