    So with all the American men done....Jason Brown still has the highest SP score with Adam right behind him so for in the GP series.

    I don't understand Abbott's choreography. Judges loved it though. 8s even with that mistake.

    I love the replays. I hope they show the same angle from every skater's URed jumps.

    Does anyone know why Hanyu wasn't invited to this year's NHK Trophy given that he is the current Japanese Champion and placed the highest among all Japanese in the most recent World Championship? I am sure Hanyu would love to be here, it seems curious that JSF chose Takahashi to headline this event instead of Hanyu.

    Adam is sill number 1 this season for me because of quads in his arsenal... he will land 4l tomorrow.

    I think that some of those slo-moed replays might be the judges/technical panel camera as it looks different from everything else. I love it when they show it slowed down and then freeze for a second when the edge touches the ice. *nerdgasm*

    Having both there would reduce their chances of making GPF.

    Takahashi is more popular.

    That error has no bearing on the CH or the other components for that matter.

    I like Adam a lot this season and I think he has some great programs. But he hasn't landed a single quad clean this season, so for me he doesn't quite have the quad in his arsenal.

    This understated sp is my least favorite from him. I am hoping for much more artistry in both of his current programs and less falls.

    It doesn't. But you know how the judging goes.

    It's nice to see a GP event where the rink is actually full even for a daytime session.
