    Final group of skaters to come late tonight or sometime tomorrow morning Pacific time. Jason Brown also got cut off a bit because I struggled to maneuver around Sarah Palinkova's beehive and her secondhand-smoke-blowing friend right in front of my sight line, chattering up an incessant storm, no less.
    How dare she interrupt Jason viewing!

    I think you should have set her beehive on fire

    My comments on the last group of men:

    Jason Brown didn't attempt any triple axels but did well with the jumps that he did perform other than (I think?) a stumble or hand down on something. Pleasant to watch, doesn't yet have quite the level of detail in his skating that guys like Dornbush have. But clearly one of the best here, lovely glide across the ice. The second program of the night to go by quickly (the first was Sean Rabbitt's).

    Grant Hochstein opened with four clean jumping passes but started to double things at the end when he started running out of steam. This program also held my attention, but it seemed a little one-note as far as musical dynamics go.

    Keegan Messing's Matrix program did a much better job than Grant's of providing musical highs and lows, but it wasn't a great jumping day for Keegan. Didn't get his quad attempt, had a bunch of other problems.

    Ricky Dornbush opened with two quad attempts. The first looked fully rotated but had a hand down, the second looked rotated, too, but he fell. The rest of the program was quite strong despite a pop on the second triple axel. To me, Ricky was the top man here - program covers the ice well, performance quality was strong, nice little details throughout. At this point, I wouldn't say he's a lock for Worlds (but is anyone?), but if he keeps skating well, he should be favored. He seems fit and focused...reminds me of Lysacek that way.

    Brandon Mroz went for the quad loop but fell. The rest of the performance was typical Snore-oz. Some good jumps, some "attempts" at "artistry" (I use both of these terms loosely), zero connection with the audience.

    ITA with legjumper (good meeting you too!).

    Jump problems aside, Jason Brown and Keegan Messing are a real pleasure to watch.

    Richard Dornbush is really making a case that he does belong in the top U.S. men's tier and that his international team envelope despite his placement at Nats was not a fluke.

    Brandon Mroz, meanwhile is back to his 2008-2009 LP; lurve lurve lurve the Bach Cello Suites, and that's just about the only good thing I have to say about it or him.

    Mirai looks awesome. There were moments during that program where I thought I was watching Miki Ando (which is a GOOD thing, her program to the same music was one of my favorites of hers) because Mirai looked so focused and methodical going into those jumps. Really looks mature compared to Vanessa and Courtney, too, her experience is starting to show.

    Ricky was great, Jason's program I feel I'm going to love by the end of the season, and fabulous to see Phillip Warren go for and land the 3a, I really like him, and now that he has that jump he has the potential to really go places.

    Did Lori choreograph Mirai's FS?
    It's quite different from her recent works for Mirai. This FS is gonna be the masterpiece. Good luck for this season!

    Thanks for all the videos...

    I noticed you got Jason's up



    Cannot wait to see it with a bit more mileage on it. Particularly loved that sequence of movements into the 3S.

    I really like Mirai's new program and her packaging. She looks really good.

    I am so happy that Mirai has gone back to her old flip entrance. It was fine, and they never should have tampered with it.

    I am equally happy to hear someone skate to the "Organ Symphony" and actually use the part with the organ!

    If she can work out the URs in the second half, this program has some real scoring potential.

    And UMBS Go Blue thank you SO MUCH for making all of these videos!!!!

    Who used Mirai's FS music in the past? I want to say Jeremy Abbott, but I could be wrong.

    Thanks for all of the links!!

    ^ I think the last part of it might have been one of the pieces in Paul Wylie's 92 FS?
