    Men's Sp

    Nam got all is jumps and is a smiley little guy, so cute. Telegraphed the heck out of the triple axel, but was good. Not a ton of height on jumps.
    Shaking his fists, he's happy!
    Liam Firus skated pretty great other than a hard fall on the triple axel. He moved ahead of Nam and Jer Ten.
    Balde, hand down on quad possible UR, high triple axel, mistake on spin, hangs on to triple-triple, must have great core strength. He's happy. Second after Firus. High tec but lower pcs.
    Rogozine two foots quad, spread eagle into triple axel good, triple flip-triple toe two footed on last jump, tracy Wilson just remarked how he skates small and is not as fast, but speed is picking up after jump elements are done. Only in third with Kevin and Patrick still to skate.
    Well they just f'ed up Kevin's music, poor guy, this is something he doesn't need after the non-season he's had. Hard fall on quad sal, hangs onto quad toe and full turns into a double. Triple axel kinda two footed I think. I like the AC/DC but his arms and hands are quite floppy and all over the place. Had a deduction and Firus is still in first by less than a point.
    Chan now, gorgeous quad-triple, doubles axel, doubles lutz!!!! Argh!!! Patrick! You are your own worst enemy!!!!!!!!!!! Smiling in interview, but was not happy with that skate at all in K&C. Focus Patrick!!! Focus! Lol!
    Rod black of CTV said a double-double is fine at Tim Hortons but not in Sochi LOL! (Tim's is a very popular coffee place all over Canada).
    Goes into first with 89.something and has 10 point lead over 2nd and 3rd, but he has to bring it in the LP.

    Was Patrick supposed to get a music deduction? He finished after the music ended.

    I've seen the last group in men. They all made mistakes. I think Chan is again over scored. His score is too big if compared to all the other skaters. Kevin had problems with the jumps but his program looked better. P. Chan doubled the Axel and the Lutz, and ended the program a few good seconds after the music. The scoring is a disgrace for figure skating.

    I was a little sad that the men had so many mistakes but as Elizabeth Manley said, we want them to make mistakes so they skate perfect at the Olympics. She said she had a terrible nationals before Calgary and look what she did.

    I was really impresses with Liam, too bad he fell on the axle, if his long is as good as his short I think he will end up third.

    Yes, I think Chan was overscored too, doing 2 doubles. But I don't think Reynolds should be in front. Or Firus. Kevin had too many mistakes too and is all over the place with his body (sorry, his arms were driving me mad).

    I was so hoping for Liam to land that Axel too! Damn!
    And I agree, I'm just going to look at it as though they have their best skates to come, right? Same with Virtue and Moir in dance. Chan can do it, he showed it at Skate Canada and especially at TEB!

    Personally I do wish Patrick skate a clean lp tomorrow because that's why I drive all the way to Ottawa for. But if a bad performance can pave the way to OGM, I'm in for it. I also want to see V/M skate the lights out.

    I feel Firus skated like Patrick in some way, the nice edges.

    Love Kevin's program. Hope he gets all his jumps back with the new boots.

    This is just a complete guess, but maybe the music deduction is only if the music itself goes beyond the time limit, and not if the skater ends a bit afterwards?

    I really enjoyed Kevin's ACDC program (although the skate itself left something to be desired)!
