    I want Dai to skate the perfect program with 4F. I want him to skate his heart out again like he did in nationals last year with unadulterated passion.
    Then, I want Dai to beat 3 quad Chan, and let the world know that art wins over even if figure skate is a sports.
    I want him to let Judges see how important and precious it is to touch people's heart by this beautiful sports called," figure skating."

    That's what I want to see in man's skating this year at worlds.

    Is it too much to ask people to refrain from putting down skaters you don't like when you praise and wish your favourite skaters to do well?

    Maybe you're much older than I.

    I agree with you. As a former skater, I would want respect if not praise.

    Bradley, Bradley, he's our man!
    If he can't do it, Dornbush can!

    These earthquakes, one recently close to Tokyo, has had to have an affect on Dai, Nobi and Taka. All three are contenders for Gold in their home country, and now that's kind of blown away. So sad.

    I would never write any one of those men off. All 3 are so wonderful and I hope they all can skate the way we know they are capable of!

    Tomas scored well in Russia earlier this season and even beat Patrick Chan! Hope this new venue will give him good vibes so he can kick butt and somehow manage to sneak up onto the podium

    The whole gang of competitors. It's the one comp where there is no LOCK.

    However, I do want to watch the American newbies. I hope they make the abridged TV showing. I don't think Universal Sport will go beyond the last group to skate. How many of those 15 top skaters will we see?

    I'd love to see Hanyu, but he's not entered. I'm happy to see Reynolds back in the game, I want to see the American newbees, and from Europe, Fernando, Gachinsky and Brezina. Also want to check out: vdPerren; Liebers, Contesti and Ten

    How many of the above will make TOP TEN? The Field is the best ever, imo. Maybe we should go for TOP TWENTY.

    ^ Of the above, Brezina is my pick for likeliest to make top 10. You are right the field is incredibly deep and the top 10 will all be first rate. I just hope it doesn't turn out like the Olympics last year, where all the talk was about how deep the men were and then it turned out to be a rather not so great comp. Hopefully, the men's comp will be more like the women's comp at Vancouver last year, in the sense that we'll get one clean performance after another. On the other hand, we may see more splats because of the number of men attempting quads, which would be kind of okay from the perspective of seeing the competitors push themselves...

    I really hope Patrick lands his gorgeous quads. And I hope Daisuke does too. Also hope Ryan lands his two quads and skates well regardless of placement. It will be interesting to see of Amodio attempts the quad as he has been saying.
    I wish we didn't have to sit through not one but TWO Michael Jackson programs though. Sorry, but neither Amodio or Verner can move particularly well to that music, especially not Verner.

    That was when Chan had a jump combo invalidated and Verner did an all triple program the layout of which was taken from Lysacek.

    What I meant was that they will not be able to compete in their country.
