    Oh I love this discussion on Joubert - Plushenko, who of the two is better

    I've seen Joubert off the ice on more than one occasion, and I must say he is quite coquinet.

    Besides, he speaks French, which I don't understand for the most part. I L.O.V.E.D the way he said du tortue in a recent video of him at home!

    I've never met Zhenya, but I read (and listen to) his interviews from time to time. And in this case, unfortunately, I comprehend very well what's being said, how he says it, what words and grammar he uses, and, frankly, I'm not charmed. But that's prob because I'm a boring person with unrealistically high expectations.

    But for the rest I don't see much difference between the two. Except for the fact that Zhenya is an Olys champ, and Brian isn't (yet?).

    Because the ghost of lil' Fréderic Chopin hunted him down, threatened to haunt Plushenko for all eternity if he didn't abandon the short program.

    It was really bad, Plushenko simply doesn't have the musicality or the subtlety to interpret Chopin.

    OT: Some experts say that French is the most beautiful language in the world. I think that is true. I don't understand French at all but I love to listen to it, even the lengthy talkings ( silly me). It's like you don't have to know Italian to appreciate Italian opera.

    that's true, he makes Evan's flailing less annoying.

    Someone wil surely correct me if i'm wrong, but I thought I'd heard that at Russian Nationals while they use the COP there are bonus points up for grabs so that if you land a hard element you get a bonus point? I seem to think that guys landing a quad would get two extra points. Can any anyone confirm this?

    So it could be that the same rules are in place for ll national competitions and could explain the high score?

    I'm not sure, but at Russian forum people say that there wasn't any special bonuses, but Plushenko got huge GOE's for his elements (I heard that his jumps was perfect), his spins are much better now than it was in 2006, so...
    And as I know score system changed, for example in 2006 4T+3T - 13.0 points, now 13.8; 3A - 7,5 in 2006 and 8,2 now. The same can be said about StSq level 4

    Many thanks for posting the vid link!!! You are not the only one who is happy now The jumps look great. I adore those graceful arm movements (okay, maybe he overdid it in "Moonlight Sonata"; looked like a dancing windmill to me, lol). Hope everything goes well today.

    Plushenko's total score is 259.14. He wasn't perfect today, fell on 4-3-3 (last jump, 3Lo, was UR) and had mistake on the landing of single 4T (touched the ice, maybe UR). Anyway, it was good for his first event after 3 years

    Oh my word! That 4/3 was fantastic....and here comes the shock i actually loved the arm movement on the landing!

    The triple axel was landed a bit forward but was fine.

    Looks like he's making a very credible run at the gold in vancouver. Hopefully this will give all the men a good kick up the butt to make them work their socks off for this season.

    He tries 4-3-3 and second quad??It is a scary thought, no plushy no!

    and here comes the shock i actually loved the arm movement on the landing!

    I love Plushenko for really wanting to try to bring his a-game. Was about time someone stepped up. No more LPs with jump content that won medals in the eighties, no more stupid calculating by a certain Frenchman, no more programs with junior jump content with a note "Bbb... bu.. but - it has transitions!!" The King is back and if anybody else wants a Gold in Estonia, Canada and Italy, they better be in top-shape.
