    Warm up group on the ice. Tanaka looks like he's in a different height/weight class from the rest of them!

    WHO chose Pitkeev's music? His competitors?
    Or did someone lose a bet?
    The first 2 minutes were like scratching a chalkboard with a nail.

    I actually like his program. I think both of these Russian young men show a lot of promise....Petrov is weaker on the spins though.

    I really like Boyang Jin, though he looked on the verge of rushing and out-of-control today! Like the program and he's really worked on his artistry/presentation.

    wow, Tanaka is 19 years old. No wonder he looks like a giant among boys.
    Now here is music that is truly fingernails-on-chalkboard quality. But he's skating like the Devil's after him and is doing a good job here. Surely he's the world's longest perpetual junior though, and he's got to move up to senior next year and try to find a place amongst the Muras, Machidas, Hanyus and whomever else isn't retiring on the Japan men's contingent.

    Wow Nathan went for the 3A! Too bad about the fall. I think he'll lead though, he deserves higher PCS than the rest of the field.

    Aw, I was wrong. He did get the highest PCS, but the TES cost him. Still, it's a ticket race for the podium. 1-5 on separated by a mere 5 points.

    I think the award for the "world's longest perpetual junior" goes to Evan Lysacek. He went into Seniors because he aged out in Jrs. I kid you not, he was in Jrs for 5 seasons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evan_Lysacek).

    Ohhhh, Nathan Chen was doing so well until he fell on the 3T of the combo. That will cost big, but spins were best of the men so far, and the rest of the skating was wonderful....almost like a baby Patrick Chan. Nathan just moves so nicely on the ice.

    Well, Tanaka's ISU bio has him skating juniors in Japan for 7 straight years, beginning in the 2007-2008 season.
