Wow..only 3.9 for a imperfect quad. What's the point. Still excited for Dai...
watchvancouver should be banned. Talking about somebody as cancer and wishing them a misfortune is PATHETIC. Get lost.
I was sad for Jeremy. But this was from his facebook, he said, "I'm not upset! I would like back some of the points that they took from my short, but otherwise I'm 5th not 11th!!!!"
So he's fine. I feel better.
Forgot last season was Oda's redemption after the DUI! Next season, it would be from the atomic bombing of his SP at Worlds!
Glad Jeremy is looking on the bright side of things. He did finished 5th (not 11th), saved the US Team by keeping 3 spots, and look at this as just redemption from Vancouver. His tweets after the Men's event were pretty sad.

IMO Chan was overmarked (as usual). All of his jumps were a bit off today. He doublefooted the 3A combo, his 3Z landing was on his toe, and he fell on the loop. He's not the world's greatest performer on his best days in terms of personality and connection with the audience, but today he was really buttoned-up and tight throughout his program. Sure, give him 8s on TR and CH, but he sure did not deserve 8s in PE and IN.
OTOH, Takahashi should have received 9s in PE and IN, and his overall skating skills are more than .35 higher than Chan's. On univeralsports.com, Johnny Weir noted how Daisuke skating is "warm", i.e. he brings the audience into his program. Chan is stiff and remote by comparison.
Oh Evan sent some love to Daisuke on his FB:
Congratulations to Daisuke Takahashi for his win in Torino!!! I'm so happy for him.
