I did not get a chance to watch, unfortunately meetings at work. Thanks to everyone for the pbp.
Congrats to Farris, Omuri and Brown. Looking forward to seeing the videos especially Martinez.
Happy that Panfili made the FS!

Not sure. He's not going to Senior Worlds, but he's not here either...there was something about an injury?

I guess it makes sense if he goes to Senior Worlds. But for now, he's only a substitute so...

I always get this Daisuke vibe whenever I see Shoma Uno skate, and I don't know if that's a good thing because I think he needs to develop his own style and identity to truly stand out. Adored the choreography for Jason's Prince SP the best. Great choice of music (I'm starting to get bored of some of the overused music like the one used for Oomori's prog, so it's breath of fresh air), lots of out-of-the-box movements that really went well with tempos of the music and made the prog really entertaining to watch, and he has such a great range of movements and body levels. If only he could get over the problems with his jumps. Love all the US guys and of course, Martinez.

I was hoping that Mitchell Gordon can get Canada into the top six nations to get more JGP spots, but right now Canada's on the bubble in tenth. Fingers crossed for a good FS.
Loved Martinez and Farris. Brown was probably undermarked (though I hope Mrs. P doesn't read that)

I think he was. Definitely deserves the highest PE, CH and IN marks.

Wicked Yankee Girl
That's true, but I'm just thrilled he landed the best triple axel of his competitve career to date.
Like many a skater, the rush of adrenalin from conquering something that had eluded him, he somewhat botched the next jump, but nonetheless, I am just thrilled for Jason. I'm also thrilled that his lutz did not get an edge call, another thing that he occasionally has trouble with.

Like subtlety in ice dancing
I am so unbelievably unexcited that Mr. Brown landed that triple axel so beautifully. And dare I say, this was the best I've seen him perform this program. There just seems to be an extra zip to it. He's certainly come a long way from when he and some of us skate fans doubted and wondered if he could ever do a triple axel.
