    As always deedee love your first hand report of Dai's FS at NHK, it was a "dream" wasn't it.

    I did, actually. But been weeks since NHK and too late to write something in the Comp thread, I thought... I will do so when I have time, if any of you would be interested.

    A nice lengthy piece on CNN on Daisuke! Also features a nearly 3-minute video. Part of CNN's Human to Hero series.

    Thanks! Loved his 3F-3L.

    No news updated on his injury so far, but believing no news is good news, here is latest Daisuke! http://ameblo.jp/marienbethkyoryuchi...716879301.html

    I am going to J-Nats this weekend. To root for all skaters who dream to get compete at the Games, and to say a big 'thank-you' & 'goodbye' to those who plan to retire after this season so meaning their final Nats: Dai, Mao, Akiko, Miki, Nobu, probably the Reeds...oh so many! whom I have loved and rooted for all these years...Whatever its outcome shall be, it's going to be very emotional for all these wonderful skaters and its fans.

    As for Daisuke, we now know thru his book 'BeSoul2' that he has been competing while quite in pain over a year (and the pain got really worse before London Worlds 2013 and since...), so I have a very very mixed feeling on his decision to compete at the J-Nats, to be honest. But if that's his wish and his team's decision, with a green light from his doctor, then as his fan I just wish him good luck, hope he won't damage his knee further and will root for him with all of my heart, just the way I have been always doing.
    I know not all of his fans on this GS Forum can be there, of course, but I want to believe you all being by my side at the arena and rooting for him with me. And Dai sure needs support and big cheers from you all, as usual and probably more than ever!

    ETA Millions of thank-you to demarinis from me. in many ways!

    Nationals is going to be so heartbreaking, knowing that it will be many skaters' last National Championships, after they have been out there competing for so long. Skating won't be the same without Dai and Mao and Akiko and the many others whose skating journeys will be ending soon. Deedee1, I am very happy that you are able to go, and I can't wait to hear from you what it was like. I will be there in spirit, and will be up at 4AM here in the U.S. cheering Dai on through my computer screen He is and will always be my favorite skater, and he has my support no matter what. It makes me very happy that he has so many loyal supporters on this site and across the world.

    Do you remember Coach Nagamitsu saying after 2010 something like that Daisuke couldn't retire until he skated a program that brought her to tears? She said that it hadn't happened yet, even at the 2010 Olympics, but maybe either at Nats or the Olympics, he will have that skate. I hope so. I know I will be a teary mess after he skates in the Olympics, no matter what. Dai always takes us on an emotional rollercoaster.

    Best of luck at Nationals, Dai-chan. You have my heart <3

    Can I please wake up from this Nightmare? The only thing that is positive about Daisuke maybe not going to Sochi is that I won't be a nervous wreck and actually won't care who wins. The whole competition won't matter much to me anymore.
