169 is almost impossible now: one fall, one step-out, one zayak combo...
Beautiful program from Chan, but those errors are going to cost him dearly. And they do....into 2nd behind Hanyu (!)
169.39, total 258.66 and into 2nd by 0.04 points!
I hope that Chanlfaltion doesnt pass Hanyu
Oh no, the Chan-flation crowd is gonna have a field day.

Wow, it actually very nearly did beat Hanyu
EDIT: nvm... blaming it on the lack of sleep...

Crushing on Hanyu, Abbott, Kozuka, & Farris <3
Chan is behind Hanyu by nearly 6 points.

This will be close: he did three mistakes, like Chan, but he had two 3As, when Patrick just one... However, I still don't get this program, it doesn't work for me
Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)
Music: I Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo
New costume: Black pants and shirt w/ V-neck and lace underneath. Blue sparkle cascading down his back.
4T - fall
3A - holds on, stepout
3A+2T - hand down on 3A, stepout
Some messy landings. He's got a lead, so it might be enough to keep him ahead.
I don't think it'll be enough to beat Hanyu......
Fall on opening 4T. Got the 4T+3T to lady screams. Turn-out of 3A. Sloppy 3A+2T. Good 3Lo. Good transition into 3S. Good 3Lz+2T+2Lo. Good 3F. The second half of the program might redeem him, but the content isn't that high. I still don't think the dramatic music is best suited for his charismatic style.
The base value of his technical content and his lead from the short will likely save Daisuke and put him into first place.
TTS 269.40 (1st)
Duly noted. Saw the diff between Fernandez and Chan's scores and for some reason thought it was btwn him and Hanyu
