    Stopped watching after the second flub of the 3axel, which he obviously hasn't mastered yet.

    Disappointing mens competition for me personally, tired of seeing the American men mess up, the best competitions are when everybody's skates their best and you win, that didn't happen here, unfortunately.

    Adam was pretty good. That was a rough landing on the 3A though.

    Great program for Daisuke despite the fall on quad!
    That was the worst kind of fall...BUT this dude NEVER slows down, the rest of the program was spectacular. What energy.

    For some reason watching Adam skate, I'm getting an old image of John Curry. (Well, John Curry if he had to do COP.)

    By turning that first 3A into a 2A, and bungling the 2nd 3A, I think he may not make it onto the podium. Beautiful skate otherwise though. In many ways I prefer this program to Jeremy's, and I do like Jeremy's very much.

    The axels weren't there for Rippon at this competition, but the rest was great.

    Wow a beautiful one at that. Too bad he's struggling with it at this point in the season because I think he is going to need one to defend his title. Although after this competition it seems like Patrick will be his only real competition baring a melt down. Nice to see 2 strong skates from him here.

    The triple axel is still giving him problems...He has to fix this if he wants to be a contender

    I made it! I'm going to go fall down for a few hours. Congrats to Dai, Yuzu and Jeremy, and to all a good night!

    My only consolation is that I know if Evan Lysacek had skated, he would have done so cleanly, and been at least second, if not 1st. Nobody beats his nice long clean lines, consistency, and passionate performance.

    Here's hoping Evan comes back next season, along with Zhenya.
