    Men - Short Program - Comments

    Poor Quad King Timmy! I hope that he comes back strong in the SP & LP.

    Cool to watch!!

    I can't even describe how cool it is to see the skaters we NEVER get to see in the US via the Russian TV link.

    OK - my first costume comments for the Men. I had to laugh at the end of Dambier's program when he did that "Janet Jackson" thing on himself. Also, that was a bit too much illusion fabric for me. But I enjoyed watching him skate.

    Yes, Timmy fell...

    It's so sad. I love what they've done with his choreo this year. Opening with footwork instead of front loading at least two of the jump passes. I also think his posture has improved a bit, and also I think some of the choreo - i.e. arm up in the air during footwork, and also some of the spin position makes this all look better.

    For this year. I hope he can get his jumps back for next year, because I just think he is at a point to put a better overall package together.

    Timmy fell on his quad :( Plus the commentators were questioning whether he got round for the quad or whether it would be downgraded to a triple :(

    Trying to get some work done at the same time as watching so can't be sure of what happened.

    Actualy I have seen worse costumes than Andrei's Carmen. It was different but kept with the theme.

    It ain't even CLOSE to being in the same Rusty Hanger class with some others we've seen this year - i.e. Joubert's original LP costume. I liked Griasev's much better than Dambier's eye popping illusion and Janet Jackson thing. Just IMO!

    Johnny

    Oh no!!! Johnny, having fallen on the axel, is currently in 4th (behind Buttle, Takahashi, and Griazev); that with the 6 arguably strongest skaters left to go... (Though his current combined score puts him in 2nd, with 7 points between him and Buttle).

    Plushy...

    And Plushy, falling on the quad toe to actually end up behind Evan for the short! He is, though, 2nd overall, just behind Lambiel. Joubert, though, is still to skate... Even that placement is helped by the highest componenets scores, even in PE.

    Brian skated clean and is in ahead of Plush by one point but behind Lambiel by 6!

    Go Stephane! It was a beautiful performance, he looks supremely confident and comfortable on the ice, everything was working so well for him apart from the triple lutz when he had a very slight touch down with the free leg. Can't wait for the free!

    well now he's third overall, with joubert second and lambiel first! whoa this championship is taking turns I don't think anyone would have predicted, which actually keeps me in the edge of my seat, and I'm only watching the scores. I feel bad for Plush and Johnny falling, especially Johnny because his 3a is always beautiful to see and it is usually a sure jump for him. And Plushenko! I imagine the audience reaction. And poor Lindemann too, I love seeing his jumps because they are so airy, and I see he had several falls! I hope everyone skate their best in the FS.
