    Well, he has a bit of homefield advantage (always a nice little boost), plus he skated in the second to last group. PCS always goes up in the later groups. Is it because they are better skaters and deserve higher components, or is it because judges expect to see better skating and are more willing to give out higher components? Combination of both?

    Well, his spins were great.

    I think Doris jinxed him with her talk about what a horrible SP skater he is. (J/K!)

    Yes, it must feel right for Dai ... but he's getting stronger and stronger on the ice, it's really incredible what this man can do :-)

    Of course, Patrick disappointed with his own performance. He was capable of much more.

    Excuses, excuses, excuses...

    Real champions will almost always rise to the occasion, not choke, look at Evgeni Plushenko at 2012 Europeans, skating on one leg practically, yet at the age of 29 he managed to land all his jumps and win!

    No excuses for Ricky, or anybody else.

    Ah, and I bet Canada would be quite happy to have half the singles men and ladies skaters we have in the U.S. But, oh, I forgot, Patrick Chan 's talent more than makes up for at least half of our skaters, plus the rest of the best in the World as well, at least according to fs judges and powers that be apparently.

    Patrick Chan ----- huuuuge chasm; another huuuuge chasm... no matter what country we are talking about, eh?

    I think Dai will beat Patrick's PCS. Or are these judges kind of stingy on PCS?

    Could be stingy....I thought Chan could score some 9s, but around mid 8 in everything...so not sure since I didn't see the skate.

    I didn't see the skate either. But nobody got any generous PCS marks tonight. A few I feel kind of low from the way I know they usually skate.

    Go Kevin go!
