    There's not much information about FaOI from faraway Fukui. Nevertheless some tiny pieces still managed to sneak in the Net. Fans as usual in Japan great their favourites with ikebanas: http://a.yfrog.com/img735/8229/ym1en.jpg , occasionally load news clip on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZwUCqbeMg8 . Hanyu skated his new FS in a costume like that (left one, with the cross): http://twitpic.com/aq5hvq He challenged 4T, 4S, 3A-2T and other triples, sometimes successful, sometimes not. Some twitter comments here from the audience:
    "BTW I saw Yuzu's FS. I could see the full version of it. Crazy jump elements:4T,4S,3A,3A-2T, & several other triples!"
    "He looked tired in the latter half (obviously!) and fell on 3F(not sure). It looked like he forgot his choreo right after the fall"
    " At this point, he is still not at the level where he can put his emotions into it as he's focusing on completing the elements."
    While his new EX with Sashida, choreo by Miyamoto, got sweet comments. Here Yuzu is in the kimono costume for this number:

    Here is this musician is talking about his feeling on working with Hanyu:

    Am wondering whether John Kerr will be performing solo ice dance on Saturday??
    Sinead and he both were scheduled to appear in Michael Weiss' benefit show on Sep 8, but apparently she cannot be there.
    Cannot tell how much the skaters are joking and not joking amongst themselves in their Twitter conversation:

    Sounds like that to me, too. I'm sure it will be fun for him and for the audience.

    Going to Mike's show this weekend, and will spend a few days in DC with our N. VA cousins. Sorry to hear that Sinead won't be able to come, but looking forward to John & the rest of the cast.

    Some day, it would be super to attend "An Evening with Champions" in Boston. What an amazing line-up! Well, we hope to make it to Boston in 1/2014!

    Oh, great, Iluvtodd! I look forward to your report on this show.

    "An Evening with Champions" is frustrating to contemplate because this show used to be easily findable on PBS (our public broadcasting channel), but nowadays it's so hard to figure out their scheduling of it. If it indeed does get broadcast, it's hidden somewhere at an obscure time. Grrrr!

    Have a good time, iluvtodd!

    Regardless of Bradley's collegial reply, it was John Kerr's tweet that he was "nervous and excited about the performance" that had me puzzling whether he is planning something unusually ambitious, such as a solo ice dance that is separate from the group numbers. If simply skating without Sinead is making him nervous, that is pretty darn sweet!

    ETA:
    And now John Alastair Kerr ‏@Jkerrbear has sent another tweet -- which also seems only partially tongue-in-cheek??
    For one night only I shall be performing solo at #icechampionslive. This is my shot!

    Thanks a lot for the link, let's talk!

    Too bad Daisuke does not get the opportunity to debut his SP either at Skate America or Skate Canada this season...the audience will love that program, I think, just like at SA in 2007 where he debuted his Hip Hop Swan.

    Here is a short video clip of the dance battle btwn Meryl and Charlie at The Ice. LOVE Meryl!

    no, i havent, but question,
    alissa is skating in 2 shows that she could have skated in another gp event. i undertand to get her feet wet so to speak, but after injury if she didn't want a 2nd gp event why should have she skated in 2 ice shows. for me if she can't skate in 2 gp events she shouldn't be able to skate in shows.
    the shows are about the time of later gp events. so if she feels she could be ready to skate in them, she could have skated in both gp events.
    personally i am getting tired of some skaters who can't skate in gp events and then skate in shows

    Do you talking about Alissa Czisny? You are unjust. Alyssa had surgery, she was unable to train hardly. If she's not ready for the competition, isn't a good idea to attend. The show is suitable to return to the ice.

    For one thing, Alissa doesn't need to do any jumps if she skates in a show. She can just get her feel for the ice back. I think that's acceptable.
