    After the epic fail on my own predictions for Skate America, I am crossing my fingers for this competition. Hopefully the skate gods are on my side lol.

    Men:
    1. Patrick Chan (almost obvious no?)
    2. Daisuke Takahashi
    3. Adam Rippon (I have faith that he can redeem himself after the upsetting last season)

    Ladies:
    1. Elizaveta Tuktamisheva
    2. Akiko Suzuki
    3. Mirai Nagasu

    Pairs.
    1. Volosozhar/Trankov (This is their competition to lose)
    2. Iliushechkina/Maisuradze
    3. Sui/Han

    Ice-Dance:
    1. Virtue/Moir (No real competition for them)
    2. Pechalat/Bourzat (I hope Fabien feels better =/)
    3. Weaver/Poje

    Men:
    1. Duh, Isn't it obvious?
    2.Daisuke Takahashi
    3. The late blooming Kevin Van Der Perren

    Ladies:
    1. Akiko Suzuki
    2. Rachael Flatt
    3. Cynthia Phaneuf

    Note: Mirai should win, I think she's the most talented of this field, but I don't trust her. So I will conservatively put her in 4th or 5th. Rachael will start off good, but get worse as the year goes on and her leg starts to hurt.

    Pairs:
    I don't know anything about these pairs.

    Dance:
    1. Virtue/Moir
    2. French pair
    3.Another Canadian pair--probably Weaver and Poje.

    I predict Chan will win and many will whine and mourn about how unfair, inflated for home ice blah blah blah and the other guy should have won blah blah blah... It has become a tradition for every Chan win.

    Let's how all disciplines have a better skate than Skate America!
