    I prefer Caydee and Jeremey to Keauna & Rockne... I don't know if it's because I've watched Jeremy struggle to find the right partner or what... but I can't help but love them!

    ETA - this music is putting me to sleep

    Nice routine by the JPN couple. Fall on the throw jump by her & their sbs spins were off, but not a bad beginning for this very young couple.

    Such a genuine response from the Japanese skater... "Oh boy..." He's not thrilled with that one. Next time!

    Yes, I kind of like their look on the ice. They are still weak technically, but they have decent presentation. I like that JPN has a decent pair team now (well, actually, it's kind of a Canadian team )and I hope they can develop the technical elements further.

    that fall looked like it hurt... not enough height? she was still rotating it looked like...

    ETA - are there swine flu worries at NHK? I've seen quite a few masks.

    Takahashi And Tran had such a good Junior grand prix, so the performance is disappointing. Well now they can prepare for JGPFs.

    Nice routine by the CAN couple. Just a fall on a throw jump by her. And oh I have to mention the music of "What A Wonderful World" (brings back gorgeous memories of Oksana Baiul skating to this in December of 2001 in a gold dress, exquisite, exquisite).

    Okay, back to this nice couple from Canada, I'm over his bald head, which I didn't appreciate at a competition last week or the week before. Lol, if I can put up with John Baldwin & his head, et al, I can put up with anyone!

    It's Japanese custom to wear a mask anytime one is sick, so you'd see masks any year-- but you're right, probably more this year.

    Me, too! I never had been quite sure what the mask thing was about.



    Kind of messy competition so far. Hopefully the final group has fewer falls.
