    Razzano and his coach do share the same name ... meaning the same first name.

    (His coach is Doug Ladret. I have no idea whether they are related by blood.)

    Yuzuru was phenomenal!!!
    the program was SOOOO amazing
    Although there are some points that he should put more effort on, this is great considering that it's only the beginning.

    By the way, is there anything wrong with 3A? The first 3A looked tilted on the air. I hope nothing's wrong..

    Did Johnny design that costume for Yuzuru? I know he has designed some for him.

    Yuzuru was great!
    I'm sure he'll get more expressive as the season goes on and he gets more comfortable with the new program. The layout is incredibly demanding, so at this point his focus is understandably more on perfecting the technical side. I love the costume--it works for the program. Frankly, I'm so sick and tired of the endless all-black, blue, or brown costumes in men's skating these days. Guys, color and sparkle are allowed!

    Talking about costumes, Voronov was working those red pants, black lace, and facial hair! You go, Sergei!

    Interesting point.

    I have noticed with his skating, however, that he usually starts the season off without as much passion in his skates as he puts into them later in the season. (Even with R&J two years ago, that seemed to me to be the case.) Perhaps he is getting to know his program and learning how to work it. As well, this year's program will allow him to express his passion better than did last year's program. Last year's program seemed to be written with the purpose of containing and pacing him, while this year's program looks like it is written to more set him free while keeping the skills he has acquired intact. From this performance here, and what we have seen at Finlandia, there is a good chance that he will return his passion and spark to the skating. (I think. I hope. I believe. I hear your point though.)

    I loved this skate, especially for the first one of the year. That ina bauer! Spectacular! I think this was a really amazing performance. So happy for him. Can't wait until St. John.

    Phaeljones, you are right. This program has everything to be a great skate. I hope he add his passion to his programs in the course of the year. That would be very interesting, also in comparison with Fernandez!

    Pieman is a lady skater with lots of style and good expression but she has always lack of faith to her jumps!
