Drat, my feed is now freezing constantly.
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.

Black, grey, white, blue, red harlekin one-piece
4T+2T - 4T twofooted, looked UR perhaps even DG on replay
3A - stepout, hand down, no combo
3Lz+3T - not much speed coming out, perhaps UR
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.
164.04 (SB), total 251.51 (SB) and into 1st
I agree. As I thought, he loses to Ross in TES, but obviously got way higher PCS.

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

Black velvet pants. White shirt w/ cross and red bands fusing into pants.
4S - stepout
FCCoSp - Biellman
3Lz - fall
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...
Orser: "That was silly. You didn't need to do that."
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.
