You can't control what the judges do, but if you concentrate on yourself and always do your best, the better marks will come. But don't ever let what the judges decide get you down."
    Patronizing, nope, in no way/shape/form did I mean it in a patronizing way. Just to be clear. And I stand by my words.

    I just checked Misha's profile on wikipedia and was surprised to discover that he can speak Chinese and is partially of Chinese descent.

    Adam's skating skill is much better than the previous skaters.

    Actually Misha Ge's family name is a typical Chinese name

    Darn, the whole time I was wondering if Adam was going to do the Rippon Lutz or play it safe with a Tano Lutz or regular lutz, but then he went for it and fell down afterwards. Still, should easily go into 1st place, he's miles ahead of the guys that have already skated.

    Btw, IIRC Mao was having trouble with her 3A/Tano 2T and instead changed it to 3A/2T during the Olympic Year, I think Adam should do so as well for his Rippon Lutz just to be safe. Jmho.

    Adam fell on his tano 3Lz
    His 3-3 combination and 3A seem OK, but may under rotated

    I hate it when Adam falls on the Rippon lutz! At least he pulled himself right back together. He's a much better competitor this season.

    For me Misha had the best skate of the night so far, Loved it. Christopher Caluza's program was fabulous.

    Sounds like an interesting competition so far, especially to see some of the lower-ranked skaters.

    I only wish I could actually watch it :(
