BTW http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/channel/live/show/winter/1352&manual=1 is doing pbp and their jumps calls are different from mine at many places.

My jump eyes are very rusty after the off season and I think theirs must be more accurate as professionals, so please refer them as well.

:respec:YAY for Daisuke and Takahiko
I'm impressed that 4 of 6 tried 2 quads in this early season!
Thanks for the PBP, Midori.

Performance-wise, Jeffrey was the clear winner to me.

No 3a? Not good for chan or plushenko. Both bad days. Very bad.

Sportnavi says he landed 3a. I will wait for the protocol.


ETA: by he I mean Plushenko

Thanks for all PBP Midori!

Performance-wise, Jeffrey was the clear winner to me.

ITA!


A bit dissapointed by today's skates. After Jeff's excellent performance I expected much better ones than actually happened.
Brezina's skate was a pleasing one but the music still bugs me.
I used to be a Kozuka fan but I cannot help feeling him stuck at some point. He surely has a charm but it could not be found these days. But it was great to see him going for 2 4T and actually landed ine.
WTF with Patrick? He couldnt hold his landing edges throughout the program. It was definitely the worst performance since 08/09 GPF. He even seems to lose some of his landing flow in the warmup.
Hope it's only a temporal issue. His deep edges and smoothness were eye catching though. Secind to none
Even Plushenko had a fall. Chan's curse?:P
Takahashi did a fablulous performance but his costume was definitely morozovlized.
And where's all the adorable transitions he used to show? I dont like this program from him...
Overall a dissapointing comp. (mainly because of Patrick) Hope ladies bring much better ones.

Very proud of Jeff - 2 excellent performances in 2 days. Hopefully Patrick's collapse here was just an off-day and not a result of his coaching changes. Congrats to Dai, but it sounds like he's traded his transitions for more consistent jumps - I hope that isn't the case and he's going to add them back in as the season progresses.

Mao's costume is very pretty but it does not look good on her.
Her flip is good now!

The program was most lovely when I saw it in a summer show. It must be
