    I think the pops are a combination of not being fit and perhaps this didn't help for his mental strength either...plus, if you're not fit and you have to skate right after the warm-up? I don't think that's ideal either...and he doesn't like that to begin with...!
    Yes I know but I thought he looked more fit in SA with that damn flu than here.. I was so disappointed with these pops, especially since that 4T 3T was an absolute beauty, the best I've seen him do.. So falling apart after that only shows nerves overtaking you due to perfectionism and expectations.. Which I feel like is back to square one for Tomas. I am just so unhappy.. I hope he's hit with a magical wand or smth tonight and wakes up tomorrow all confident..
    On the other hand, I am also rooting for Oda, I hope he overtakes them all with the Chaplin magic, the best programme I've seen so far this season..

    maybe, maybe not. I can speculate a lot (about what I think and thinking about things in the past etc.) but in fact, I know nothing right now :P
    I just know that a week ago, he really wasn't fit yet, and he said to Czech press too, that he wasn't 100% ... and I do think this had some influence...either physically, mentally, or both.

    I agree with this prediction.

    I hope Takahashi wins, though.

    I am happy for Daiske & Evan.
    Both of them were wonderful today!

    Looking forward to watching LPs. I love all their LPs especially Evan's.
    I feel really sad Brian isn't at GPF though.

    I love Evan, but can somebody please get him a stylist??? His Chicken Little costumes have already been commented upon, but what is up with his hair??? It's even worse than Ross's hair in Friends. NO TO HELMET HEAD!!!!

    I demand to see the pdf scores for this baby.
    Even though I suspect I already know what this is, the fact that he skated earlier. Classic figure skating judging.

    Sir Lysacek has some funny scores however. And I thought they were funny when he got 79 for a SP with no proper 3A or quad.

    Ah, enough scores ranting. Great competition.
    All I know is Johnny's finishing move in his SP is just creepy.

    Yes, I went back and watched them as well. Such wonderful skating!

    I'd say Lysacek did deserve 2nd behind Takahashi. It should have been a far wider gap, of course, but I appreciated a couple of the choreographic details more this time and think the program is quite good (even if Weir does have stronger skating skills). His arm movements after the Flip are, dare I say, interesting and beginning of his circular step sequence is a great moment.

    I am happy Weir gave a strong performance, of course, but it's difficult because he just isn't the skater he used to be. His musical interpretation simply doesn't have the uniqueness and effect that it used to.

    It is very sexual. As if he is tasting and wiping off a certain...

    Oh jeez, I can't even say it on this forum.

    I kind of liked it, though.

    hahahaha

    No matter what, I will always have a soft spot for Johnny. I just realized that also sounds pervy, but I mean he just seems like a sweet-heart and even if he's not skating his best I always cheer for him.

    Plus, what other male skater wears an outfit with sequined pink ribbons? hehehe :o :o :o

    I read this before watching the competition and thought, oh god nooooo! But I actually think it's a good look for him. Kind of like- Elvis, the pink period.

    Watching these SPs together really showcases how great they all are. Please, Tomas and Jeremy, get it together before the LP. You guys are better than this. Show it.

    Just got back from a trip so I didn't get to watch... sounds like I missed a great competition

    It is SO great the way Evan has handled the pressure this year. Keep it up!!

    Indeed. Mental toughness and consistency really matters. IMHO, Evan really utilizes the best of what he got. Good for him.
