    Yes, that's Ota.

    In Japan most of LIVE will be on BS NHK, not the general NHK channel, and BS is a pay channel, I don't think it's available online even with a Japanese IP.

    Three guys are planning combos with a quad in SP: Dai and Voronov- 4T-3T, Kevin- 4S-3T, the rest are planning a solo quad: 4T- Yuzu, Javi, Dorn, Andrei, 4S- Ross, Dice. Rippon is the only one with no quad planned in SP. No one is planning a combo with 3A, most of rest planned combos are 3L-3T except for Adam and Adrei- 3F-3T.

    The men (and the ladies, now that 3A is recognized as the solo axel requirement for ladies as well) aren't allowed to do 3A combos since it's the solo requirement, I believe.

    Mirai Nagasu ‏@mirai_nagasu tweeted another group photo showing a lot more of the students they visited.
    Visiting a school in Sendai! Although we went to their school to cheer the kids on, the kids ended up being the ones who inspired us. They have done an incredible job rebuilding their city http://instagr.am/p/SWI9o7i5Xa/

    Bravo to the kids for their resilience.
    Seems that Nagasu was able to channel the inspiration that they gave her into her SP.

    It's lovely of Mirai to tweet like that. ...especially for me to know it, after watching such a cold-sweating/nerve-wracking competition.
    Thanks a lot, golden411!

    deedee, are/were you in Sendai attending NHK in person? Or at home glued to a screen with cold sweats and nerves on edge all the same? Either way, thanks as always for your posts.

    Silly off-topic questions for you (if you happen to know the answers):
    Is "domo arigato" the origin of the mascot's name "Domo"? And who is the other mascot? https://twitter.com/Max_Settlage/sta...89728684638208

    There is a Japanese channel on some Comcasts & on my tiny cable provider. It is carrying NHK, but unfortunately, I didn't even know it existed until this week. I have to figure out how much it will cost me to get it in time for the JGPF

    Yes yes, I am one of those who at home glued to a screen with cold sweats and nerves on edge this weekend, leaving all cooking/dishwashing/laudry/cleaning etc. to their 'sweet' husbands.

    You are right about the origin of 'Domo', I think. The other characters are named: Usajii and Ta-chan.

    Duh, until I saw this photo, I had not put it together that Team USA swept the bronze medals at NHK. Congratulations to all (and to Davis/White).

    Thanks very much for your reply and link, deedee. Apologies that I hadn't noticed that you already had mentioned in another thread that you would be closely following all the NHK events from home. Good thing that your husband is so accommodating.

    Rad! That is cool. Everyone looks great. And I love Maia and Mirai's dresses! And Ross looks cute in his bow tie.
