Said it before and I'll say it again. Not a good jumping day, but for sure a promising spinning and foot action day.

Weird day. Looking forward to redemption tomorrow. The costume is a work in progress. Thank you to all my fans in Moscow today!

Why the negative GOE on the combo? It looked alright to me.

Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
That quad triple was crazy good. Much better than he used to do them. The ice coverage he gets on the triple axel is world better than most of the other men except maybe Chan. Again, the chreo was minamilistic, but it worked somehow. Very plushy. He is back with a vegnance.
Sleepy SP for Johnny again. The technique on his jumps looked all off...usually he has such nice form on the triple axel but here it looked sloppy in the air and then the landings were all scratchy. Hate the costume. Bad music. Please change your program Johnny, you are more talented than this.

I rewatched it, and don't have an answer. Plus, that difficult catch-foot entry?

Men's filed in RC is a lot weaker than TEB. Most programs are so Zzzzz.
But Plushy is still great (jump wise), especially the 4-3. Hopefully that will motivate more men to try quad in the Olympic season. He still doesn't skate to the music, but who cares, he's Plushenko.

Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
So far I've seen Plushy, Johnny and Kozuka.
Plushy - amazing in the air, what a dull program otherwise. But what a comeback! I have to admire the guy but please God no more OGMs!!!
ETA: That said, I really hope I get to see him at SA!
Johnny - I'm glad the judges like it, but the program (which I saw live in CT) is still a snooze as far as I'm concerned. But he says his Fallen Angels FP is his best program ever - I hope he's right.!
Kozuka - perfect skating but the program is a mistake, IMO. The music just drones on and on - it has no highlights or energy. It would work as an exhibition but not an Olympic program. This guy has such a pure, understated style - he should skate to something classical and not too heavy - like Curry's Don Q. (BTW - I have a Korean student who has a strong resemblance to Kozie. He gets a little extra consideration for that. )

Kozuka's SP is fantastic - I love it!!
Something so refreshing about his interpretive style. I can't believe that kid is so shy and considers himself "not an artist type" (paraphrasing from some interview he gave last season). He has greal musicality and a real genuine sense of cool - no cliches or studied poses in his choreo. He can still push the expression outwards in spots, but I love what he's doing! He is fast becoming my favourite of the male skaters

Mine too and I am heartbroken to see him treated with cold shoulders by the judges. I am canadian and I simply like him even more than P. Chan, who became a little too cocky for my taste

I wouldn't call him better than Chan, but I always thought that they are pretty equal. The judges thought the same, till Buttle retired.
