    Keegan shouldn't worry too much about his placement - the number 13 is luck for a lot of Alaskan athletes.

    Abbott's biggest problem at this stage of his career is his age & what his body is capable of doing. My congratulations to my 3 favorites; Miner, Aaron & Dornbush! I think Max has 2 quads planned for his free skate.

    Why didn't you just say that before? :(

    I briefly looked up the protocols for some of Jeremy's international competitions-- he doesn't usually go for a quad in the SP, but goes for one in the LP. That having been said, his attempts last year were all given -GOE except at Nationals. Oh well, at least he's trying.

    Can't wait to see his SP when it's posted on YouTube too!

    Abbott's back problems have not ended; it's recurring, comes and goes. He reportedly has a physical therapist he regularly visits to help treat it. Most skaters have nagging pain, particularly when they are an advanced age for a skater as Jeremy is. He has to constantly monitor and manage his health and the pain and he has to limit the number of repetitions for the quad jumps. Without the run-through numbers in practice, he can't be expected to feel comfortable with that element in competition. He has made the choice to go more conservative to try and stay clean and I can't say I blame him for it.

    Looking at the protocols, it looks as though there has been a transcription error? The BV for the triple axel is 9.35 for Abbott but it is only 8.5 for Miner and Farris?

    Anyway, looking forwards to the videos!! So glad Miner and Farris did well.

    Hope Josh and Jason skate clean in the LP. They showed tonight that they belong with the big boys. I see both of them passing up some of the skaters ahead of them in the next 2 years. They are the future of US Mens skating.

    Abbott's 3Axel comes after the 2 minute bonus. He gets extra credit for placing it late in his program.

    Jeremy, the smart guy he was, did it in the second half, so he gets a 1.1 percent bonus = 9.35 BV.

    Watch the videos quickly because, as already noted, the videos will be pulled quickly due to copyright infringement.

    Disappointed Jeremy didn't go for a quad. With or without a fall on it, he probably could have come in first anyway. He desparately needs it if he wants to get onto the world podium...Why didn't he try it here?

    A gutsy performance from Miner going for 4S! Really wanted he won SP.
    Sad for Armin and Keegan...
    HUUGE jumps and electrifing performance from Aaron!

    That was adorable! I'm really happy for him that he can shake off those negative thoughts. Hope he keeps it up in the long.
