    Wow, Silvia, you are fast! Guess I will be going to the Junior mens' event, then. I haven't had the opportunity to see Nathan compete in person, yet.

    A new Ross Miner article about his FS theme has been posted in this GSD thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...-Boston-Strong

    Jason Brown won his first senior international medal (silver) at Nebelhorn Trophy today - his FS video is posted in his joint Łber thread, along with a link to his photos: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post4005341

    Nathan Chen qualified for his first JGP Final today by winning the gold at the JGP in Minsk, Belarus.

    The Eurosport commentators said Jason Brown had a quad planned in his long program (which he didn't do). But apparently he is working on putting one in.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Great start to the season for Jason! Thanks for the NHT video of Jason's free skate.

    Apparently Prince's team finally realizes (in an Olympics pre-season) that Jason Brown, figure skater, is skating to The Question of U. Guess it went under the radar all last season.

    Oh well, here's Jason's JGP Courchevel sp from last season:

    Would love to see Prince at a Disson skating event performing this song while Jason B skates.

    Yes, I noticed his speed, too and was very impressed with his whole skating.

    Yes... I think his Riverdance program will do for Rohene what Daisuke's Blues for Kluke did for Camerlengo.

    BTW, wasnt Rohene going to come back to competition this season? Is that still on or did i miss something?

    No, Rohene Ward has decided to rejoin the Holiday on Ice tour as a principal skater - I mentioned this recently in Manleywoman's SkateCast #67 thread:
    http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...rview-Part-One

    Jason Brown gets his second GP assignment! USFS has just announced via Twitter that he is Lysacek's replacement.

    There's now a new thread for Lysacek's latest injury and withdrawal news: Lysacek out of Skate America

    Wow, interesting breakdown, thanks Cyn for putting it together.

    I always find these type of scoretrackers fascinating...

    Thanks for your compilation, Cyn!

    2013 World Junior bronze medalist Shotaro Omori is the only JGP competitor who has moved up to Senior in the U.S. this season. His scores at the JGP in Slovakia:

    Short Program (2nd): 40.47 (TES) + 30.11 (PCS) - 0.00 = 70.58
    Free Skate (8th): 53.91 (TES) + 59.66 (PCS) - 1.00 = 112.57 [reportedly skating on an injured ankle]
    Total Score: 183.15 (5th place)

    Unfortunately, Omori had to withdraw from this week's JGP in Estonia - he tweeted on Oct. 7:
    My ankle has not been healing as much as we'd like so my coach and I decided to withdraw from #jgpestonia Good Luck to the rest of #teamusa!
    ETA from the JGP Estonia thread in Kiss and Cry::

    AFAIK there is no Senior Men's event at the upcoming SWP Regionals and so Omori will next compete at Pacific Coast Sectionals in November.

    Which of U.S. men's programs are looking to be favorites/ very competitive?

    Still kind of early in the season, but I think Jason B's lp is looking very good. It's great how he's had the chance to slowly develop and make improvements in many areas. I loved his Liebstraume last season. He was so great at Junior Worlds. Now it seems a change of pace for him with the Celtic number (something different which shows off footwork and the cool choreo of Rohene).

    Max's programs have great potential and his hard work shows. I'm sure he and his programs will evolve even more over the course of the season. Adam Rippon is looking very strong and competitive as well. Rippon's lp is already a favorite of mine. It's wonderful to see Adam looking good. And, I think Ross Miner's programs also have very good potential. Good luck to Ross and Richard D in perfecting their quads and re-finding their rhythm and confidence. I haven't seen Jeremy Abbott yet this season, but I'm looking forward to both his programs. Sean Rabbitt is showing strength and improvement, and I hope Alexander Johnson is healing and will do well this year. It's nice to see Nathan Chen performing strongly on the junior circuit.

    Nice post, aftershocks, love how you have something positive to say about each one. Also your post reminded me of some I had forgotten. Looking forward with great relish to the GPs! Oops, and also Senior Bs as well.

    aftershocks' post is exactly like that silly US Men preview video the USFSA made last year. Includes Nathan Chen, excludes someone who then made it look foolish by taking pewter at Nationals...

    ^^ Ha ha! No intention to exclude your fave, Joshua Farris, misskarne. I enjoy a lot of skaters, but mentioned the U.S. men skaters who came immediately to mind that impact me and that I've most recently seen. I do like Joshua -- he's a great person and a wonderful skater. It was lovely to see his smile of pure joy when he placed fourth at U.S. Nats earlier this year. I hope Joshua continues exploring who he is and expressing that with increasingly greater confidence on the ice. And again, I'm really happy to see Nathan Chen coming back strongly after a difficult season fraught with health problems.

    I guess you could keep up with the policing of other posters offhand comments/ opinions or you could just state how you feel about your favorites instead. BTW, who among Australian figure skaters do you like and suggest that we get to know and enjoy?

    ^^^ There's an Aussie Skating thread in GSD that can be used for that purpose.

    Josh Farris, Nathan Chen, and Braden Overett are among those who participated in fun 60-second interviews during the "Evening with Champions" post-show reception - video link is posted at: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post4017460
