    Heck, he has a great case to win the championship this year. With his NHK score, he has the highest FS and overall score SB out of all the U.S. men.

    Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)

    Music: I Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo

    Black, grey, white, blue, red harlekin one-piece

    4T
    4T+2T - 4T twofooted, looked UR perhaps even DG on replay
    3A
    FCCoSp
    StSq
    LSp
    3A - stepout, hand down, no combo
    3Lo
    3S
    3Lz+3T - not much speed coming out, perhaps UR
    3F
    ChSt
    CCoSp

    Much better than CoC, but still some costly mistakes. I don't like this program for Takahashi, I'm afraid...

    Daisuke was ok, but easily beatable by Yuzuru.....

    I don't like the LP either.

    He will get high PCS scores, but I'd be interested in seeing how his TES compares to Miner.

    You know Dai made some mistakes but that wasn't bad. He kept the energy up- it's almost like he's pacing himself and feeling out the program both technically and emotionally. It will be better at the end of the season.

    I agree. As I thought, he loses to Ross in TES, but obviously got way higher PCS.

    Wow Ross and Dai were close in the freeskate.

    Ross got a quad, 7 triples (2 3As), and a 2A.
    Dai got a quad, 7 triples (2 3As), and an URed 4T combo.

    Ross probably got much better GOE, so his TES are about 6 points higher, which seems fair.

    Yuzuru HANYU

    Music: Notre Dame de Paris by Richard Cocciante

    Black velvet pants. White shirt w/ cross and red bands fusing into pants.

    4T
    4S - stepout
    3F
    FCCoSp - Biellman
    StSq
    3A+3T
    3A+1T
    3Lo
    3Lz+2T
    3Lz - fall
    ChSt
    CCoSp - botches change-foot, fall?

    Some stupid mistakes, though I think it will be enough for gold...

    Yuzuru is happy he did not die from exhaustion. Alas, it was not a perfect skate...

    Really bizarre mistake on the spin by Yuzuru, but should be good enough to win.

    He looked really, really laboured in the LP's second half though. Was noticeably slower and less sharp...

    Yuzuru running out of gas in the FS as usual. Fall on jump and on his butt on a sit spin. Still, with the lead he had in the SP, probably did enough to win.
