    Elene had taping on one shoulder, struggled a bit throughout the performance but it was a fine one.
    Loved Akiko's fluid and smooth skating. She was flying on the ice like a feather! The program was so light and attractive. She had a solid performance to the middle and it was a shame that she imploded after that. I like her program best in this comp.
    Now what the hell with Colorado skaters? She also lost her speed in the second half.
    Leonova did well and her jumps were huge when succeed but I still cannot stand the noise from her blade...
    Mao! Extraordinary skate from her. So glad to see her doing so well in Japan. kudos to 3S I want her show a bit more power in her skating though. it was do fluid and light but lacks something which can be found in Akiko's one. The program itself needs more mileage imo. (less connection between moves IMO) Hope the program grows throughout the season.
    Wagner did great as well but was a bit unpolished compared to Mao. Upper body especially.
    Not a bad comp overall.
    Congrats to Team Japan

    Happy for Mao & Ashley.

    BTW, while 30 years old Arakawa succeeded 2A-3T, none of six young skaters succeeded 2A-3T.
    Kudos to Arakawa!

    Takahashi did a fablulous performance but his costume was definitely morozovlized.

    Thanks for the info. I love Mao, but agree that (aside from the mistakes she's made in recent years) she skates too cautiously. I wish she could skate more consistently like her Olympic SP or the 2008 Worlds SP:

    I'm looking forward to seeing the program, but hope she eventually uses a choreographer other than Tarasova or Nichol.

    Jumps aside, Patrick's program was really great. Very looking forward to the time when he put it together.

    A bit disappointed for Michal as it it not a new program I wanted to see a better delivery.

    Thanks Midori and Vigiliae for the updates. Congrats to Team Japan. I kind of expected them to win. Sounds like the ladies are doing very well. Ouch, hope Patrick's falls is due to early season and lack of practice.

    midori and vigiliae, thanks for the pbp and report. Feeling sorry for Patrick but glad to hear he was great in the warm up, and I'm really glad that Kozuka is doing so well in this competition, hope he'll regain his lost ground this year.

    And allow me to add Yay for Jeff!!! That's my boy!!

    What a weekend for him and I really hope we can all see it at some point.

    Big Ouch for Patrick. Here's hoping it's just really early and that's all it is.

    I haven't clicked on that link to Takashi's costume yet, as I have yet to go to bed and I'd like to not give myself nightmares. All I had to do was see the word "Morosovized" and...Nope!!

    Sigh...Nice to have the Season underway, isn't it?

    It's more ugly Morozov than tacky/vulgar Morozov, if that helps. Looks like they recycled part of Rippon's old costume and sewed it together with one of Johnny's.

    Ashley's dress is awful.

    Oh yes , especially since baseball season just ended for me.

    Wow, great for Ashley as she is now making a habit of beating Mao Asada (4CC, Worlds, Japan Open). That can only do wonders for her PCS as the season goes on.

    I agree about the unfavorable review of Wagner's dress though. The bright tennis ball yellow with the bright, blonde hair translates into too much perk for me.
