    Not like the competition was on top of their game here exactly.

    I want to see Johnny's program. Despite the jumping problems. (He's for sure having issues with nerves, though.)
    His FS costume is a thing of adorable beauty. Love the angelwing.

    ITA, I see so much room for him to up the level. My god, he stamps those jumps like pancakes.

    The score of Plushenko is of course beatable but the problem is when he improves his PCS, the other skaters need to be without any mistakes and considering there isn't an overall consistent skater out there... And now when Plushenko is putting even more pressure on them

    how excited he looked after he finished! i loved his "sassy" program... the arms were great, much better than for the short. i think 157 was about 10 points too low....lol. but, he did put the majority of his jumps in the first half... so if his team spreads it out a bit, that would boost his points some... and he could do another combo i think? what level did he get for his footwork?

    overall, wonderful outing with a bang.

    True, true

    About Zhenya:

    Hey, yeah, he wasn't crazy overscored today! It a good thing to know the panel isn't insane.

    Protocols are up!

    The base value for Plushenko's LP wasn't unusually high. Lots of frontloading in that program - only two jumps get the second half bonus. And finally, how he gets level 4 spins is beyond me.

    ETA
    : Mroz had the highest base value in the LP, but the execution wasn't as good.

    Nah, pshht, I don't see gender.
    The design is beautiful. But the back needs a bit more work maybe.

    that's what i thought. he needs to spread it out more. his program looks very good still. but i'm sure mishin will analyze it to death and do more tweaking.

    Stupid question. In protocols, 3S = triple salchow, right? If so, why didn't that get the second half bonus?

    Also, the range of marks on transitions is hilarious. 2.5 points difference between the lowest (6.00) and the highest (8.50).

    It's even worse for IN, ranging from 6.50 to two times 9.00 (who are these 2 latter guys? they shouldn't be judging)

    But head-to-head, tonight's Plushy would beat TEB's Oda.
    Oda's score was higher. His program is better too.

    The one that gave 8.50 had to smoke something heavy... Seriously, he/she should be warned about this!
