ryan and sawyer were the last ones i expected to medal congradulations to the both sawyer first gp medal; Poor mroz goes empty hand two years in a row; I was sure armodio was going to medal with artem, adam, and Michal. Men are so unpredictable
1) Abbott with a quad
2) Brezina or chan
my wish for SC is 6 clean long programs in the men event alone
Congratulations to all the medalists, especially Evan, who finally won Skate America Title! Well deserved! That skate was great, he keeps improving everytime! Kudos to Vera Wang for the see through.
Really like Ryan and Amodio's programs, so refreshing and entertaining, they both beat Nobunari on my fav cutie's list now! I think I'll watch those programs over and over again.
What a pleasant surprise for Shawn! And kudos to Tomas for pulling off a beautiful performance while being so sick. What a fighter! Wish him a speedy recovery and strong comeback at Euros and Olympics!
Evan Lysacek with a PCS of 81... truly, the mind boggles. Tied with Jeffrey Buttle's best (received in 2003, when PCS scores were higher than now), higher than the best PCS Weir and Lambiel ever got, almost as high as Takahashi's best score, which was for a better skate and at 4CC. Whatever the judges were smoking, I really want some .
Congrats to the medalists, though, who by all accounts were in the correct order, and to Lysacek for qualifying for the GPF and finally winning SA (not that it was too hard). And at least Tomas still has an outside shot at the GPF! Though it would come at the expense of other skaters I like...
