    Men's final practice done. Gachinsky hit a lot of beautiful 3A. Takahashi looked better than in his SP but then the underrotation and 2footing started. Max was good for the 1st minute but after that his jumps went MIA. Majorov was rolling and tumbling hard on his quads one almost ended in a complete split on the ice. The second group as a whole was just better by a good margin. But besides Machida all these guys quads are sketchier than inner city Detroit. I don't think besides Machida and Max any landed a clean one.

    Not me, but then Brian isn't here, or I would. Don't worry, Olympia (pats hand), Dai will be fine! He seemed very... philosophical about his SP; try to just enjoy his beautiful skating and relax! Yes, hard to do, I know... (I think we fans of the Old Guard should stick together - do calming excercises together or something... )

    But those are good palpitations, yes? So looking forward to his free! When does it start, by the way? I can never figure these things out...

    My mistake. It appears the event info on the isu site is incorrect then.

    It could be an issue of time zones....we're not quite at the end of DST, but ISU clock might have assumed we were.

    Oh, no! I didn't even had the time to enjoy "the missing black tights". But at least we saw her once without them. Somebody must have told her something.
    What about the practices? I hope Valentina sticks to her 4th place.

    Yes, please give us some news about what has been going on today... Mao's 3A? Liza's jumps (all of them)? V/T?

    Hmmmm it just may be some splating today for some of the women and I'll throw Simon in there too. Simon and Caroline looked in complete fear going into their jumps. Especially Caroline who falls looked painful especially the 2 that ended up with her in complete split position on the ice. The top five looked like the top 5. Mao did a beautiful 3f/3l in her run thru!!

    Showtime in 2hrs!!!

    Ok so all the pairs really looked good. Ksenia and Simon had some problems with their jumps. Simon missed all his during his run thru.

    Women: hit and miss from the first group. I feel sad for Caroline especially. The other girls struggled too just not as much. 2nd group looked better. Marchei looks good. I really don't see the top 4 changing much unless TuktTukt has the skate of her life there is really no one who can/should pass Marchei unless she implodes. Mao I think was the best! she landed one 3A I saw, lots of beautiful 2A3T, and a gorgeous rotated 3f/3l!!! Wagner and Radionova looked like the usual!

    Funny Liza looked a lot better in yesterday's practice but maybe that means she'll do better to day, here's hoping!!! Her dress with those tights and those brown boots look tragic in person. She should fire her costume designer.

    Simon? Do you mean Simon Shnapir?
    And you surely meant 3F+3Lo from Mao, right?
    Anyway, thank you for all this!!
