I had great expectations with Nan Song but something happened I think it was after Four Continents two seasons ago - he is just not as great as I believed he was destined to be. He has such elegance and a very particular grace. I love watching him even with the mistakes and he is not Jeremy Abbott but there is something so lovely about watching him perform.. but the mistakes
Are the judges on crack? How could Song be virtually tied on the PCS to Majorov?
The world is round after all.

Is it me or does it seem that Brezina likes skating to the same type of "Gangster-style" free programs?
I was totally smitten with Brezina when he first did American in Paris back in 2010....sort of sad that he hasn't lived up to his potential.
I feel like Brezina is one of the more stylish skaters but these mistakes just are way too much.
More or less: more is more
Michal BREZINA (CZE)
Music: Sherlock Holmes (soundtrack) by Hans Zimmer
4S+2T - turn in-between
4S - fall, maybe <
3A+3T - fall, maybe 3T<
Two falls and two pops - not his best skate by far.
Score: 66.13+70.16-2.00 = 134.31, 206.22, 1st out of 3
MB used to make me want to pee my pants when competed against my beloved skaters - I saw such great potential in him. What happened? Why all the falls and mistakes? I feel like I can bet money on him falling multiple times every time he skates.
And, Richard Dornbush truly was amazing with his Sherlock Holmes a couple years ago - way better than Brezina today.
Michal Brezina - His upper body movement was in character of the music and a lot of the time, he interpreted it well. However, the program was also very empty in places, with nothing other than long entries into the jumps.
Second 4salchow and 3toe after the 3axel were underrotated, possibly <.
I was thinking about Ricky when I heard the music, which makes me sad too, because that's the last program where Ricky really killed it. I'm hoping that perhaps could change this season.

Florent is so much fun to watch. It would be even more fun if he managed to stay on his feet ...
Another one from the "young ones of 2010" that really haven't lived up to his potential.
(in reference to those who skated in seniors in 2010; not Hanyu, who was still a junior then).
Wow, that was.... Pretty terrible.
I guess he'll be 9th.
