    Very good performance from Oda. Will the judges place it above Daisuke?

    He did score over 80 at SC, so it's possible.

    I like this Storm music of Nobunari's, it suits him. But other than the jumps there isn't much going on. I would have Rippon ahead of him on PCS. Jmho.

    Overall I guess I was expecting more from the men. I'm hoping tomorrow night's FS will be a blast, especially since I will be there watching it live.

    Omg, what a surprise! (8^O I can't believe Oda is ahead of Takahashi. Not on my score card, but there's still the FS to go!

    Great! You may pick up details that we can't since the competition is so much more vibrant in person than watching it on a 2-dimensional screen.

    Some problems on the jumps, but his PCS should hold him up overall. He's like Ricky Ricardo on skates. Just a natural performer.
    He reminds me of Ricky Ricardo too. Dai's skating needs no splaining.

    Agreed!

    Well, "angst" in the form of head-grabbing and stroking one's face was also good enough to win quite a few medals under 6.0 as well, so....yeah.

    As for my comments on Rippon, I like his skating but I see no point in sugarcoating things he could work on.

    Miserable competition. Consistently inferior music (Jalousie by Takahashi .. really??? Puh -leeze). Uninspired choreography. Wobbly landings. Manufactured excitement. Ho hum. Pass me the nail file.

    Do not want to hear any more about Oda's baby.

    Watched live on IN ... and have never missed a FF button more.

    No one's a bigger fan than me ... and no wonder we're in the toilet. This just isn't good enough.

    It wasn't terrible enough to be fun-bad. And it wasn't bad-bad. It was just ... nothing.

    I mean this for Men's and Pairs ... what a ZERO Skate America this is.

    I have subscriptions to IN and universalsports.com. US is the worst. It's not even giving me a SA option.

    Okay, enough with the bitter, I'll go have some wine and stop whining.
