I'm just pumped up for men's event.
Sorry for Plush's injury, but he just made it much more interesting.
leave no stone unturned
Oh I want Takahashi to win this and all, although I was hoping for him to win also next year in his country, but If Kozuka wins somehow magically you will see an hysterical happy girl on tv jumping on ice and hugging him!
Yeah. I actually think that's why Verner pulled out. He said he "wasn't in form" but he landed a gorgeous quad in Vancouver (before he imploded the rest of the program) so I tend to think he was referring to his mental form, the kind of reasoning that "If I go to worlds I will likely bomb again and get badly beaten by my younger teammate who does not have a quad....for the 4th time this season". Yeah. I'm just hoping at least one of the headcases performs well here.

GO Team Abbott!
Maybe a record in fs history? all pairs with the same initial for both partners, and in alphabetic order. Just kidding
I don't mind these three in any order
kinda late for predictions but I don't really do ice dancing or pairs (but I do watch) so here's just men and ladies predictions:
I think it's going to be a historic almost complete Japanese sweep of the medals at this world championship:
I think Takahashi will be the champ unless he tries to go for a quad flip. He does, all bets are off.
I can't imagine how Kim can really get up for this competition. She just won the top prize in figure skating so it has to be really hard to get motivated for Torino. And it's gonna be a break out competition for Mirai!
An All-Japanese podium for both men and ladies? I don't know about that, this seems highly improbable given the assumption that somehow Kim will bomb pretty badly for this to happen and several other men will have to bomb too for Kozuka to get a medal.
