Good for Jason. New season's best. Did he hit a 3axel?
probably not. no fall deduction.

No 3A attempt for Brown. Bright future in Ice Dance.

How do you know he has a "bright future in ice dance" btw?

I do note that his 2 axel looks significantly better than it has. He may get that 3A yet.
Just watched the YouTube vids...
I really liked that Jason Brown. This is the first time I've seen him skate (didn't watch the regular JGP events). Very smooth, interesting and enjoyable style. I like his costume and little ponytail too.
I...think it was a joke.

At the rink. Again.
Unfortunately, it's either clean + fall or << or < + 2footed

It was a joke- the height was not really relevent. 3A's are in SP's and LP's. It'd be odd to save a 3A for LP when they are needed in both SPs and LPs. He was the only one not to try a 3A in his SP. The not trying of the jump is the most negative for his career in singles if he wants to have one and skate in seniors. I don't know what his career plans are and if he wants to continue after Jr.

He's like every skater at 16. He wants to go to the Olympics. So he'll keep trying to learn the 3A.
