    Did Adam Rippon borrow Denney/Coughlin's Annoying Electric Guitar Versions of Classical Music CD?

    Terrible music. Jumps weren't much better.

    I like Rippon's, um, new haircut? I'm dubious on the music choice. Why not just pick Nessun Dorma instead of an electric guitar version that doesn't suit his lines at all? I just found the entire thing conceptually jarring, as if he was skating to a different song the entire time.

    Yay for Machida! I didn't know C2C before his SP, so hats off to him for introducing me to new awesome music. I find his interpretation original and a breath of fresh air. All of his jumps were performed competently. I expect a high 70, low 80 score.

    I am not sure if his quad or 3-3 combo was fully rotated, but that was a great, great program. He is in a great shape!

    I can see Takahashi as Presley... makes sense to me!

    Not sure if that 3T was underrotated or if his quad toe will be downgraded (it seemed a little smushed on the ending).

    LOL, looks like there's more Japanese fans than Chinese ones in the arenas. All those DAISUKE banners everywhere!

    Probably the quad, it looked 2-footed as well.

    Well, that is exactly how it should be!

    84.79 looks actually really low.. Underrotations?

    I don't think we ever saw a country with 5 skaters who could potentially medal at worlds. Japanesse Nationals will be heartbreaking

    Oh God, so true. How horrible must it be to belong to the best skaters in the world and not being able to go the World Championships because of your nationality.

    I wondered about that too. But ***unabashed Dai fan warning ***
    to paraphrase an old porshe commercial: Daisuke Takahashi, there is no substitute.

    What's also sad is knowing that the Japanese world team (barring injury/severe catastrophic meltdowns) will almost certainly have Takahashi and Hanyu....leaving only one realistic spot for at least three talented men (Machida, Kozuka, Oda) to fight it out.
