I have live play by play available for everyone without a live feed at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...ree-skate.html
Well I haven't seen any of these guys brand new LPs, except for Richard of course at Skate America, so am looking forward to that.
Also, looking forward to see whom can land their quads! Though I have to admit nowadays it's kinda hard for me to tell a quad from a triple b/c some of the men make it looks sooo easy.
Here's to hoping Oda can make a comeback; my LIVE commentary on the event http://backstagebarbie.blogspot.com/...ting_7877.html
Having a blast watching the little kids in the audience.
Did you all see that little girl in pink dancing, and the crowd applauding her! LOL! :D

4T - hand down
3A+3T - stepout
3S+2A+SEQ - I think, the feed froze
3Lz+2T+2T - a bit shaky
Solid content... he should be able to move up.
Anyone have problems with the Ice Network feed? It's driving me nuts!
Aww...good job Richard!
Score: 142.34, new SB, total 205.27, new SB and into 1st
I know we shouldn't compare across competitions, but Richard's TES score is higher than what KVDP (who won the FS) got at Skate America. Crazy. And it would have ranked third in TES at Skate Canada.
It will be interesting to see how much Richard moves up.

4T - 2footed
3A - hard fall, will he ever get it consistent? UR, perhaps DG
4Lo - fall, probably UR, gutsy though
3F+3T+3Lo - wow!
3Lz+3T - again wow, perhaps flutz and/or UR
Very ambitious program!
Valiant effort by Kevin! Too bad about the falls on the 3A and 3R, but he *never* gives up on the performance, sold it throughout, and the headless scratch spin at the end was beautiful to see!
Btw, I see he has a huge following from Japan ~ love their banner!
Kevin did 3 quads, fell on one, and a 3/3/3.
Almost 80 on TES.
OMG, that was a 4R!?! Alright, I didn't know that!
Score: 140.10, total 204.41 and into 2nd
