    Same could be said for the US.


    I'm interested to see how Team Japan's pair scoring goes. It does seem that it should be 0, not 7.

    My only real problem with being in Tokyo is that my inability to use chopsticks is on full display. Within minutes of my first meal here, the waiter saw me fumbling and brought me a fork without my even asking. I would have felt embarrassed had I not just stepped off of a 12-hour flight, which left me in some zombie-like state and seemingly unable to feel human emotion. I replied with my finest Japanese, "Arigato gozaimasu," to which my partner, Madison Chock, laughed. It seems like I'm fitting right in.

    This is the only first-hand report source I've seen about yesterday's practices:

    I think there also are mentions of Asada's 3A and Chan's 4T.

    The ISU feed is working. The opening ceremony has started.

    Will there be a separate comp thread?

    they are intoducing all the teams and each team is doing a little bit of team choreo! Radford's hat is very cool! Chan is sporting Cdn flag as a cape!

    I miss Moir's forced smiles and barely hidden contempt for the event.

    Jean Senft is the ref?? Does Balkov get to be the tech specialist?
