    I'm very glad Patrick is OK. He'll be back!
    Agreed! I think his new LP is a masterpiece and could potentially put him on the Olympic podium if he skates it well. I can't believe I'm typing that because normally I hate Phantom of the Opera (I dislike Davis and White's dance version, for example, this year, no matter how well-skated). I found his attitude in the interviews both after the short and long refreshing — no boo-hooing, just an acknowledgment that he didn't skate well and will be back for Canadian championships.

    Enjoyed a number of the programs very much. My fav was probably Takahashi. Abbott could certainly play spoiler at American nationals for a spot on the Olympic team.

    Protocols are up...

    1. Jeremy got a positive GOE of 1 on the quad.

    2. Patrick Chan's 2nd triple axel was deemed underrotated, as if you didn't know that already.

    3. No edge calls for the top five FD performances.

    4. Preaubert really doesn't get anything GOE wise. Total GOE of 2 points. But he does this with only one of his elements getting a negative (his lutz)

    Wow! Congratulations, Jeremy, Daisuke, and Alban!!!! They were all awesome!!

    As for Daisuke's choreography, I think he is playing a circus performer. Definately not Zampano(not macho, brutal enough), nor Jelsomina. IMO he is portraying the other guy, the guy killed by Zampano, I don't remember exactly, maybe he was an acrobat or a jester? A bit silly, a bit feminine, a bit melancholic...
    So I can imagine that the jester wakes up and gets out of bed, trips over something in his messy, tiny room, just shrugs it off and starts another day in circus. He walks a tightrope, does juggling and his stuffs....
    I actually think it is really well choreographed and Daiske performed it very well.

    Missing in Action.

    As you said, protocols only go up once the entire event is finished.

    Doesn't it seem like the three Americans in the GPF will be their Olympic team?

    yeah, i doubt abbott or mroz or the others pose much challenge, should these 3 land more than half their jumps.


    ETA: i meant rippon and mroz... thanks gourry for the correction.

    What I find funny is that an edge call means mandatory deduction, between -1 and -3. Lesser known skaters always get more deduction when their jumps are marked with an "e", than top skaters.

    Just look at Chan's Flip here or at Joubert's Flips at NHK: they only get -1, sometimes just a 0. Look up skates of lesser known skaters, they often get a -2 for an "e".
