    Not much with his charm either today.

    While I love Evgeny, I am very surprised he got standing ovations with
    this performance. Not so big, but still.

    Com'on guys, both Patrick and Evgeny were doing great at the warm up.:(

    Thanks for all PBP Midori!
    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.
