How sweet of Akiko, Mao and Kanako to make Dai a birthday gift. The B/Day cake looks delicious.
Thanks for photos and thanks to let's talk for Dai's Exhibition video link. He is breathtaking as usual!
Do you all think that Dai will go to WTT? I believe that each country has to submit their list of participants
no later than March 25th.
I kind of hope he won't, so he can rest up. But of course I'd love to see him skate once more this season.
^I feel the same way. He has not mentioned any reason for his jump problems other than he is fatigued, but I wonder. Earlier this
season we were told he had boot problems which he may well have had but his boot problems were supposedly fixed and now it is
fatigue. Any how whatever it is I hope he gets healthy and recovers soon. I am sure he will feel a lot better once gets home to Japan
after being away from home for so long. I think that Dai is more comfortable training in Japan.

Good to know that now it's official Daisuke will compete at WTT next month. Because, to tell the truth, I bought a ticket last night for 1st and 2nd day. (soldout for 3rd day though...)
I understand he must be fatigued a lot by now, but I am sure Dai will get lots of love and cheers from his fans there!
These are my favorite performance by Daisuke in 2012-03 season:

SP2 at Worlds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FchiPNpBNYw
Free at GPF: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SciWgOL0EjY ->I'd prefer this one than his Nationals ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtoUoiorSQ8 ), because while not perfect in jump-wise, he expresses every note of the music just beautifully.
^Thanks deedee. I am happy for Akiko. Thrilled for you that you got tickets and that you will be able to cheer for Dai!
Well I think if Dai was injured he would decline it is not like he is a boy he is 27 with a mind of his own.
That said I do hope he gives himself a break and rests he surely does need it.
Hope Dai and Akiko skate well at WTT and show their best skating. Then get a much needed break. Cheers! for 2 of the most beautiful artistic skaters who show maturity on the ice.
(haven't read any single line in that magazine yet, so don't ask me about the interview please )
Thanks for the pics. Alot to be admired from Dai and Akiko on and off the ice. Both seem so humble despite being great talents.
