    Yeah but they're going to see it as "but that guy fell and the other didnt, and that guy did two quads and the other guy only did 1". Oh well, I'll have to painstakingly explain to them how the system works, then.

    I don't think that's going to happen though, because both guys will skate clean (I hope! ) and I'll just say Hanyu had two triple axels and two different quads so he was able to rack up more points.

    Yeah, I could never be a competitive skater. I have hardly slept these last couple of days because of the anxiety and anticipation of how my favorite skaters will do. I don't think any of us will ever fully know or understand just how tough all of them are for even stepping out on that ice and training every day for an Olympic dream that is so fleeting.

    Just think yourself trying to explain ''that guy fell 2 times, this guy skated very good, why he didn't win'' (PCS) Trust me, this is much more harder than explain maths of figure skating. You have to just say ''his base value a lot of higher than this guy'' or you can say ''4S with a fall still going to get 7.50, because its quad, you know its a big jump''

    Hanyu knows he only had to rotate that quad. He got 102 TES in GPF with a fall (still 5 point higher than Chan) This is excellent program layout from Orser.

    re battle for bronze medal: my last-minute-wish to the skating gods is, if not Daisuke, then Brian to win it!
    Brian deserves an Olympic medal, I believe, more than anyone else here, considering all his great accomplishment in the last 10+ years along with Evgeni! Goo Brian!!!

    So true. If Daisuke won't make it, I want Brian or Javier to do it.

    Just 20 minutes to go! I hope Yuzuru won't collapse after the free. I have a feeling he has his exhaustion/asthma under control now, but he still was drenched in sweat after the short.

    Hmm, been looking through the streaming schedules and can't find one yet for the Men's LP. If anyone can find a working one--especially the BBC one (I need my Robin Cousins' fix!), please post the link. Thank you!

    Here's hoping all the men skate clean and let the chips fall where they may.

    I couldn't watch anything live yesterday, but now here I am, sorted for tea and snacks, and I am already a nervous, emotional mess! I hope I can make it through.
