I don't want him to either, but what would you suggest he wear given the piece of music he's skating to?

Somehow lots of bling or spandex doesn't seem appropriate.

some people just can't carry off anything blingy and imo Jeremy is one of them

I think the costume matches his skating style, I wouldnt change anything

Dai is the best. I've always wondered if the training time lost in the 2008-2009 season seriously affect his Olympic result.

Watching Daisuke's program here, I really am impressed. I didn't like it much on first viewing, compared to last years' programs. What a season--all my favorite arteest skaters are going to be at the top of their game!

So, how do you think he and Chan will compare at the GPF? :saint: Which, fortunately, is on neutral ground in China.

Chan has amazing technique but IMO there is a disconnect betw him and the program/music. They are just moves that Lori gave him. Dai interprets his music on a completely different level than Chan. And sadly, I dont see Patrick growing with Lori and jump harness girl as his coaches.

Evan will be disappointed to learn that. ;) I think you're remembering Worlds.

I liked the men's competition much better at NHK than at Skate Canada. I thought all three medalists were great for the beginning of the season. But, then again, I usually enjoy all three of them.

Happy to have Terry back, but I wish they'd limit Weiss to the men and leave it as just Tara and Terry for the women like they have it Terry and Mike for the men. The three of them together didn't work as well for me as just Terry and Tara did in the other broadcasts.

Dai is a much more mature skater than Patrick. His expression is much more varied. Patrick has amazing skating skills. They both are outstanding in attack and commitment to movement. I would hope Dai beats Patrick, if only to encourage Patrick to keep improving on the parts of his skating that are still a bit lacking. However, my dearest wish is that Jeremy pulls out all the stops, the stars align, and he beats them both!

Yes, agree with this completely.

ITA. IMO, Dai and Jeremy are musical, but in different ways. I think they're both wonderful (and I love Patrick's skating skills), but I would love to see Jeremy pull it all together when it counts the most.

LOL, spandex. A little color? Actually, I've never seen the movie, is dictating the costume?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118799/

Life is Beautiful starred Roberto Benigni. Set in the 1940s in Italy. The first part of the movie covers the courtship of him and his future wife; second part of the movie sees them and their son to a Nazi work camp. The Benigni character is sweetly funny and imaginative and comes up with all kinds of games to help his son survive the work camp and his wife to endure it.

Thanks for the recap, I don't know why I've never rented "Life is Beautiful." Don't get me wrong, I love Jeremy and his skating, and I'm sure by Nationals his jumps will be together and he'll probably open with a quad. I just think the program needs a bit more flair, overall. Like I said earlier, I'd hate to see it overlooked in, say, the final flight at Worlds. Given the description of the movie above, there might be room for a few "lighter" moments, nothing heavy or out-of-character.

JMO, I'm hardly suggesting Jeremy try to be Dai, or, heaven forbid, Amodio.

I think Dai was the happiest person on the podium with Evan was a close second. :)

That said, I am loving the season so far. I could watch Chan stroke for hours - no jumps - just stroke. He's beautiful. Jeremy's programs draw me in and keep me there. Then there's Dai. I do so look forward to what he comes up with each season. It was so good to see that secure quad back.

Weighing in a little late, but I want to put Rachael on Dancing with the Stars until she learns to express emotion -- not just the "I have to have an emotion now! Okay, now I can turn it off. Okay, now I have to turn it back on" thing she's got going on.
