    MEN - Short Program

    I guess it's not too early to start since it's tonight!!!

    - Will Chan break his own record?
    - Will Dai overtake Chan?
    - Will there be an upset?
    - Will we see many quads?
    - Will we see splatz-fest all over the rink?
    - Will we see someone come out of nowhere and steal the spotlight?

    Discuss.

    Can not wait!

    Should there be any upset in Men's event, it should happen at the SP. There are dark horses with great quads who could surprise especially if the top guys have any slip. Watch for Nan Song and Kevin Reynolds if they land all their jumps to be in a podium position going into LP where Patrick Chan is darn hard to beat.

    Oh, I woke up today all primed to watch this event at 3 pm, only to realize I made a mistake and it's not on until 8:45. Ten more hours to wait! : (

    I haven't been excited for 4CC like this for years, mainly because both Chan and Takahashi are in here.

    Patrick has to deliver his top game in SP in order to beat Takahashi's Japan National kind of SP. Even though the odds are all in Patrick's favor, I'm still very nervous for him. Ice is slippery plus so many ill wishes and jinxes on him, can Patrick does back to back perfect programs again? If he needs to get his falls out somewhere, I'd rather he does them in this competition and regroup himself for a strong worlds finish. Takahashi knew that he has to give out every ounce of what he has and capable to compete with Patrick. Any mistakes on technical front means he might be lost.

    There is a big gap between the top two and the rest of the field. Among the second layer skaters which, to me, include Song, Rippon, Reynolds, Miner, and Dornbush, Song is the strongest and the steadiest of them all. He has the ability to pass over the top two skaters Chan and Takahashi should both of them falter. Song or Reynolds might be the best quad jumpers in this competition. Rippon has the ability to pass Song or even the top two if the top two have a major meltdown which is actually very unlikely, but his BV is less than Song's in his program I believe. I just don't see Reynolds, Miner, or Dornbush would be a threat to Chan or Takahashi under any situations. I wish Dornbush has a strong showing at this competition to silence the critics.

    Jeremy Ten and Denis Ten are the third layer skaters to me. The rest are the fourth.
