    Takahashi is an embarrassment. No jumps. He should have retired.

    Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)

    Music: Sonatino for Violin by Mamoru Samuragochi

    Black costume w/purple ombre. Asymmetric shirt w/ silver sparkle

    4T - fall, definitely at least <
    CCSp
    3A - hang on, skid landing
    FSSp
    3Lz+2T - stepout
    StSq
    CCoSp

    Nooo... mistakes on all jumps. Why?!

    SP: 35.84+42.25-1.00=77.09, in 5th

    Lowest TES, highest PCS.

    Takahashi, ditto what I said about Kozuka. Japan could now seriously be considering a team of Hanyu, Oda, and Machida. It's not out of the realm of possibility now.

    Oh boy....it's only the SP and my predictions are looking pretty terrible right now. Though so far I was right on Kozuka being 4th.

    Daisuke - lots of errors. Fall on underroated quad, saved the axel which looked delayed on the takeoff and he did not check the landing. Lutz and only a double toe with a quick little step out. I don't love this program on him - interesting how he went with subtle during an Olympic year. Looks like he is favoring something as he is getting off the ice? Thought I caught a grimace there. Concerning.

    Score is 77.09, 35.84 TES, 42.25 PCS, -1.00 DED.

    Oh, Dai. I wish those jumps were there; that program looks like it could be wonderful.

    And let's register this for a second. Our podium as of right now is Machida, Brown and Rippon. Did anyone predict this?!?>!?!?!

    So, had Max skated clean he wouldn't have beaten Jason.

    Yeah, this is why I don't make predictions.

    Aaron HAS to hit his jumps to get anywhere near passing respectable PCS marks. When the jumps are not there for him, it simply serves to magnify how much he is lacking in other areas of his skating as the judging here shows.

    But he didn't skate clean. Good chance Max is not going to be on the podium.

    I won't be surprised if I end up getting... nothing right. But I don't mind. I was right, though, about the men being especially unpredictable - but then, I'm sure we all knew that!

    ETA - Just checked on my predictions, as I couldn't quite recall and - yep, as of now, nothing right.
