    I'm guessing they held out on the 9s because he would have been near 100 if that happend.

    KVDP is still a great jumper, but his artistry hasn't improved as much as I hoped it would :(

    So the judges basically just gave Chan +2 across the board on every element, with some +3's thrown in for good measure, didn't they.

    I sent a cosmic request for Patrick to break 90 and he surpassed that!

    Too bad about Koz though. I'm somewhat shocked he's below Amodio. Well, one brought it and one under-performed. Bring it tomorrow, Taka!

    My problem with using World records is the fact that scoring changes. That Patrick's sp score is the season's best thus far for anyone is enough of an achievement. We don't need to muddy the waters anymore.

    That fall on the quad for Kevin is really unfortunate, because quads are the best thing he has..

    I like Kevin, but after Patrick and Taka he seemed so painfully slow... :(
    sad for his quad, he did so much of them in practice!

    Kevin van der Perren

    Skating to Romeo & Juliet, Kevin van der Perren reminds me more and more of Timothy Goebel - a strong jumper but lackluster in presentation. A fall on the attempted 4T, but solid 3A and 3F+3T. Improved spins and footwork. Despite his lack of overall artistry, I still respect him as one of those workhorses in skating who fights for everything... though he always seems hard on himself when he misses one thing.

    SP: 68.34

    When Patrick is on, he makes everything looks so EASY!
    Exactly. The skaters after him look slow and almost gawky. What an amazing performance from Patrick. I'm so glad I stayed up to watch it.

    Huh? What waters are being muddled? I think it speaks to an impressive perfromance. If he brought had brought that to the Olympics...man!
