Lol- he really is a flower
Finally had the chance to see it for myself.. Hmmm, he was great on the jumps, untouchable..Spins are definetely not slow, they're ok. Unfortunetely this programme definetely lacks the spark he had on many previous programmes. It's purely desgined to win under the COP. I just love Plushy so much, I;'ll try to ignore this..

Ren Faire reject Lambiel minces in between botching jumps :

So grateful for descriptions and comments here. I totally messed up on my schedule (don't ask lol). Also very grateful for the ISU Result site.
It's nice to see the placements of my favorites in this contest. This is a very exciting event.
Voronov will probably do better in the FS. Generally, if he does very well in the SP, he bombs in the FS, but when he is in trouble after the SP, he seems to come into the FS with major determination. I won't go into my ancient "heart of a champion" speech lol, but it is something that Voronov just does not seem to have, sorry. He, like Gryazev before him, seems able to do well enough in his national championship, but is just not a great international competitor, which Plyushchenko is.
Keep it coming, guys, keep it coming! I loooooooove men's singles! Keep it tough! Keep it beautiful! Keep it nearly impossible!
He still doesn't skate to music, he still has flailing arms, but who cares? I have to say that Bravo Plushenko, you are still the King!
Euro guys rock!
Just watched Plushenko. Jumps were great as usual, but other than that not much there. What was with the footwork sequences?? Why is he flailing around so much when he is skating to slow music? Subpar choreography and interpretation.
The starting order for the free skate is now up. Lambiel will skate last.

Yay for the starting order!! Brian has to bring his A-game, because fetching out his calculator and calculating what he has to do - just won't do it this time, because the big guns skate after him.
