    Dai fell on 4f (UR, maybe), but I totally forgot it. Others were very nice despite some minor mistakes.

    I don't even care what score Dai gets. He is sooo much an artist. Didn't you love the fan wiping the sweat off his brow!

    Whoa, Dai's PCS!

    I'm good with it, though. I still hate Blues for Klook, but he skated beautifully.

    Wow, 259.75 for Daisuke. He really ground the competition to dust, didn't he? 24 points above Kozuka (!)

    Man, it sucks to miss the whole competition, and just see the ending. Seriously, it takes away everything.

    Anyhow, great that Daisuke won, as expected, but I see that none of the Japanese top dogs (Dai & Takahiko) has been able to land the quad, which means Patrick Chan has no competition whatsoever.

    Too bad, I like to see a close competition like at the 2010 Olympics.

    Will watch the mens fs tomorrow, too tired to watch it late tonight. These GPs wear one out, lol. :D


    CONGRATULATIONS, DAISUKE, ON YOUR WIN HERE AT NHK, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY YOUR EXQUISITE PROGRAMS!

    Yes, like Saint Veronica!

    Dai was a rockstar playing the audience. At least he gets that fall out of the way first thing. After that he saved everything even though the jumps were not perfect like yesterday. Oh, I have loved this young man since Olympics 2006. I still remember that fluttery lavender shirt and his musicality. But he has transformed himself.

    One thing about him is that he never sleepwalks a program like most of Kozuka's tonight. He gives it his all.

    ETA: Buttercup, I didn't like Blues last week but it really grew on me tonight. He really does play this skate like a musician. Amazing.

    Holy Ordinals! 6+4=3 for Miner. I'm glad he grabbed the bronze, though!!!

    And Takahashi DEFINITELY made up for the otherwise night of skating. I think his scores are a little high for what he put out, but just a little.

    As an aside, I really hope Armin ditches his FS before nationals. Getting lower PCS than Menshov and Mroz with THOSE skates should send a message, I think.

    YES. I am a big Armin fan, but this program was worthless IMO and the costume looks cheap. His distinctive elegance wasn't there. He is in danger of losing himself. I hope he and Priscilla can find a solution fast.

    ETA: I am still worrying about Mroz. What happened to him?

    Mroz has to be the most boring skater in the history of the universe. Most boring Carmen I've ever seen!

    WHY would Armin get lower PCs than him? Armin's program was generally well-skated and actually somewhat enjoyable.

    Hmm ... thanks for the info. I was never a big Averbukh fan.
