    So someone's Chan bashing has already begun even before the event ends eh? How pathetic. Really.

    Good for Michida. He was a dark horse for me.

    Which it was, right?

    Oh dear, Ricky...

    It was all very nice, apart from the jumps. He looked spooked from the get-go. A shame.

    Poor Ricky. He needed a redemption.

    So now that Dai has the advantage to know how Chan has skated. Will he go for the quad, or play it safe and do the triples...

    Well I'm hoping Evan Lysacek has been watching and comes back blazing next year! He's the only American man that we have that's consistent and is a pretty good all-around skater. Here's hoping Evan & the USFSA has worked out all the legal issues and allows him back with open arms next Fall.

    The judges seem to like Richard somewhat. While he's way down there in TES (10th as of right now) he was 5th in PCS.

    The horrible Nationals SP plus the short notice he had about competing here may have just been too much for Dornbush. I wouldn't be surprised if he was kind of lacking confidence here.

    Dai doesn't play safe, he never does. He skates the way he likes to skate on a particular day ... he doesn't know for sure what he will do before he goes on the ice ... but I'm sure he'll show us a nice performance :-))

    And surely, he probably felt some pressure because he knew there was some leapfrogging to get him to the competition.
    I admire Dornbush but I think the USFSA probably should have not sent him. I got the feeling that Richard was ready to regroup for next season.

    Yep, I heard that the 4-3 Daisuke did at Japanese Nats was sort of decided on the fly as well...apparently even his coach didn't know that he was going to go for the 4-3.
