What's the word better than "exquisite"?

last years program
1t or 1f
Jeff　１６０．８６　GJ
BTW Jeffrey got overall enthusiatic standing ovation.
Thanks, Midori so much for the PBP!
3z3t turn out
Jeffrey is watching from NA team K&C.
Thanks midori for the PBP
Thank you, midori!
Kozuka was showing somwthing more than "a great introvert skater" but it wasnot quite visible today.
4t fall again
3f in the middle of the rink
step sequence charming
chss very smooth
oh this is quite a melt down, even for Patrick.
Thank you very much Midori.
Ouch for Chan
for Patrick. At least it's very early in the season.
My thanks as well - very much appreciate the pbp
4t2t the 2t was a bit wild
3?z2t2l may have been 2z. his jumps are a bit off
music change to swan, that explaing this costume
step sequence with swan arms
very strange music change
chss with Y position attempt
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.
No 3a? Not good for chan or plushenko. Both bad days. Very bad.
Don't follow suits!
Utako, Takeshi, and Morozov are standing at the board.
4t good boy
4t1t 4t was 2ft
going to the referee (as choreographed)
chss with big long curves
I am not very sure if my jumps calls are correct, especially for Dai.
overall standing ovations.
Team Japan leads after the men? Did it happen before?
Thank you Midori for the pbp. YAY for Dai!
Nice for Takahashi.
Thanks for the pbp
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.
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.
Sportnavi says he landed 3a. I will wait for the protocol.
ETA: by he I mean Plushenko
Thanks for all PBP Midori!
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?
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.
6 minutes practice started
Mao's costume is very pretty but it does not look good on her.
Her flip is good now!
Taping on the left shoulder to the uuper arm
2a fall very tilted
big clapping to cheer up
3lo so, both hands
It was not quite her day.
The program was most lovely when I saw it in a summer show. It must be
awesome when it is ready.
Thanks so much midori. I'm impressed that Jeffrey Buttle was able to perform so well two days in a row.
spin with bielman
3z so, hand
ccosp with one very twisted position
Team standings so far
North America 388.23
