Also, yay for Brian! I didn't watch but I'm very happy he did well.

Lots of good performances.
Nice to see Daisuke again!
LP is going to be so interesting if everyone skates like this.
I just realized Yuka Sato choreographed both Abbot and Kozuka's programs... that makes sense! Love them both!
(On second thought, it seems she choreographed Kozuka and coaches Abbot... anyways, something's similar!)

Brian in first, Weir in third? That screws up my predictions royally. Well, if everything goes accordding to plan, Brian is going to implode in the free tomorrow anyway, then Abbott is probably in first overall , which would mean that I got at least the winner right.
But was that a great morning of skating or what? I love the boys and the men. They are so awesome, so many good and clean performances.
Okay, that was awesome. But my eyes are soring and killing me.... Should I stay up to watch ladies event or should I get some sleep? I can't decide.....
Plus, one extremely important thing about Abbott is his 3A - he either has it for a competition, or he doesn't. It's rare that he lands it in the SP, and then screws it up in the LP. And if his 3A is there, his artistic mojo, his confidence and most other jumps are too. He just can't make a mistake, it often makes him implode, not just on the jumps, but also on the artistry (he turns into deer-in-the-headlights) and choreography.
Hey, you do that too? I often start my laundry, change the sheets (because those are Friday-chores in Medusaland), wash the dishes etc. But this time I was glued to the screen.Originally Posted by Oreo

I want to see how Ashley and Laura do here but I guess I'll check it later... Too tired to stay. (But hey, nobody is even bothering to make a ladies SP thread?? Come on~~)
By the way, I'm so glad Brian got a new costume.
Jeremy's skating is just so seamless.... purely wonderful.
And Johnny... I mostly like his program but his costume is.... well.

Unless ladies can step up from little ballerinas or totally mind numbingly boring programmes, I don't think we'll see much improvement. I guess this was harsher..
I am so happy for Brian, I hope he can land his jumps tomorrow.. He needs to take that pressure off him.
If Abbott could've had decent consistency, I think he could totally beat any American skater in all competitions. Too bad cos I think he's way above Lysacek, Weir or the others (yes, I'll probably get a mouthful for saying this).
now what was joubert's score? the feed stopped way before he skated....
I'm loving these comments from Nadine. So much passion. And huge appreciation for Jeremy Abbott.
I am mad that I did not watch the live coverage of this event. Silly me, doing other things.
The SP competition here sounded amazing. Joubert, Abbott, Weir, and Takahashi all doing brilliant things. Too bad that Kozuka had a big mistake. I can't wait to watch.
