    I thought Oda was clearly the best and underscored compared to what the others showed

    It was great to the men skating so well. Is this the first Grand Prix event this season without falls?

    77.90 for Kozuka.

    I had to refresh my feed and only watched the last half of Kozuka's program, can anyone tell me what happened?

    Chan tacked combo onto his triple jump.

    I don't like Kozuka's SP - and Dai's feels cartoonish
    Oda and Chan were easily the best

    I like Daisuke's SP, though I suppose it is because I am probably in the target demographic. It is very fanservice-y indeed, with all that grunting and smouldering

    Kozuka had two minor errors, he struggled alittle with the exit from his combo, the 3 Lutz was fine but not enough speed and his following 3 t oe had hard time to hold on to his edge coming out, not a 3 turn but close to it, so he lost some GOE's there and he also hit the board on his straight line footstep end , losing slightly his balance, two bobbles which probably counted for about 3-4 points.

    This competition was tops in its Field. There were six Men determined to do their best. Some did; some didn't, Why on earth anyone would consider them to go through a Nationals is beyond my way of thinking. The 3 Japanese Men are the best selection for Japan.

    Chan's beautiful skating was not marred today and if he can keep it up at the LP, he is a contender.

    Tomas and Florent have seen better days, but what they did do was top notch.

    I missed the Americans, Joubert and Brezina but there's time. I hope Brezina is able to skate.

    The LP should be a humdinger. This is a first class international cometition.

    Missed Oda, Florent, Verner and Chan. Seems like Oda was on, good for him. Did Parick do a quad?
    Loved Dai and Taka. Nothing cartoonish about Dai's skating to me.

    I see your point. I am most definitely not the target audience for Dai.

    I am also not the target for Kanako but she gets me anyway.

    I must be the target for a new series of Dick Button commercials

    Oda was on fire. Both Daisuke and Taka had odd stumbles and some other little quality problems. Patrick's 4T was not as good as he had so 3T was tacked on to 3F. His jumps are all preceded with footwork so the combo can be made out of any of them without concern of not having all required jumps. Couldn't see well on computer stream but I believe he does one foot footwork into his 3F.

    Both Nobu's and Patrick's scores are huge.

    Sorry Silverlake.

    Yes, Chan did a single quad and he tacked the 3t behind his flip.
