    2012 Cup of Russia Men FS

    It's starting. Why did Weir pull out? Not in shape or injury (humiliation)?

    I assume because he realized the futility of it all, and that he's just not competitive. But I expect we'll hear about a just-incurred injury.

    He did. Lol, we strated the threads at the same time! Earlier they said he had a pain in his hip or somesuch. Originally wanted to skate but changed his mind.

    Good to see when people are having the same thoughts at the same 10.40 time. Lol. Because it's just true! Bad day indeed.

    We started the thread at the same time at 10:37 (my time) with another poster. So, let's move there.

    They're showing the Men's free skate on TV on the East coast now. Menshov has such high first jumps. I'm not familiar with him at all.

    Nobody looks very smooth yet, though, except perhaps Kozuka. Chan hasn't shown yet. Do people here on GS feel that since the CoP, the general quality of skating has gone down with everyone working so hard to maximize points? (With a few exceptions, of course.) I don't think I've ever seen such a collection of labored spins and step work in my life, men's and ladoes' alike. No wonder Kiira Korpi won. Her spins looks like actual spins, fast and centered--not as if she's afraid of tipping over because of a complete absence of centrifugal force. Or is it centripetal force in this case?

    No, I don't think the quality of skating has gone down whatsoever. I think we tend to remember the best of the previous era, but lets remember, not all spinners were Lucinda Ruh and steppers like Yuka Sato.

    Definitely like Meshnov more than Gachinshi at this point as far as the Russians --- he's like 5 for 6 in the quads. He has really nice jumps in general....

    And just being nit picky with Patrick -- couldn't he get better costumes? My husband said his FS costume looks like he got it at a consignment shop. Isn't he dating a fashion designer?!
