  1. Looks like my eville plan worked. sallycinnamon managed to pull into a tie for the lead with river so we'll have a real competition for gold in the overall by worlds. The bronze medal is only 3 points apart for 3 of us. Overall scores including Autumn Classic - I omitted people who missed more than 1 event river 332 21 28 19 28 34 32 37 42 25 25 41 sallycinnamon 332 25 32 22 28 23 29 31 46 19 28 49 Old Cat Lady 307 21 22 21 32 23 32 31 44 20 24 37 LadyLou 305 28 31 20 30 25 22 27 44 17 25 36 airi 304 20 23 24 30 32 33 25 42 21 21 33 Paskud 260 15 23 23 23 29 33 25 34 23 32 Louitunes 250 22 23 17 20 23 30 36 17 26 36 TeaFrida 245 18 25 22 23 21 24 44 19 22 27
  2. @LadyLou @river @Paskud @airi @Louitunes @TeaFrida @ralucutzagy @Sayu93 @Figure_Frenzy @sallycinnamon As usual, I don't claim accuracy so here's a spreadsheet of everyone's answers. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OUiN1fTeRBdZgJCuOuhfkiMSiWyj1UoCLHZf__vFFBs/edit?usp=sharing Just a reminder that the scoring for questions 8-10 is -1 for each incorrect answer, +1 for each correct e.g. on BQ8, if you guessed 1 discipline wrong, it meant you only got 2 points because it was scored as +3 for correct answers - 1 for the incorrect one = 2 total. On reflection, this doesn't make a ton of sense but since I stated it that way on the form, I scored it that way. Team Japan scored surprisingly well - all the singles skaters scored higher at 4CC than at nationals. Answer Key Ladies Podium 1. Rika Kihira 2. Young 3. Tennell 4. Higuchi Pairs Podium 1. Sui/Han 2. Peng/Jin 3. KMT/Marinaro 4. Calalang/Johnson Dance Podium 1. Chock/Bates 2. Gilles/Poirier 3. Hubbell/Donohue 4. Wang/Liu BQ1: Will the cumulative score of the gold medalists from 4cc or Euros be higher? Europeans 968.7 962.45 BQ2: Will Yuzu attempt 4axel in either practice or competition? No BQ3: Will any ice dancer that finishes in the top 8 receive a negative GOE on any element? Hawayek/Baker RD Min/Eaton RD Soucisse/Firus FD BQ4: Will team USA, team Canada, or team JPN get the most medals? USA 4 BQ5: Who will have the highest raw PCS score combined across both segments? Yuzu 94.04 BQ6: Will anyone in the top 6 of any discipline LAND a jump or combo with positive GOE that they have never before landed? No BQ7: Will any of the medalists get a higher PCS score than TES score in either segment? Jason Brown FS Sui/Han FS Peng/Jin FS BQ8: In which disciplines, will the 4CC champion score higher than the Euros champion (+1 point for each correct, -1 for each incorrect) Men BQ9: Which members of Team Japan will score higher than at Nationals?

  3. It's just because he lost a level. The GOE's he got were mostly fine (except for a 2 that got dropped) ... until you start thinking about what Chen gets for his stsq
  4. I'm just glad that Paul at least added an "all time great Yuzuru Hanyu" - it was grating on my nerves that Yuzu kept getting clumped together with the likes of Duhamel, Chen, and Misha Ge
  5. I still think this program is awful but Jason makes the most of the material he has. I think he did enough for silver
  6. Not perfect but his performance has improved so much and it looks like his jumps are starting to come back. I still have faith that the struggles of the last year will pay off by Beijing. I think it was wise to look at the long term plan
  7. Wow!!! what a great come back from an awful grand prix. I like the music for him - he's both more mature and dynamic this year. Who cares about the first half of the season if you have a great 2nd half, when it matters the most
  8. I'm so impressed with Tomoki's difficult entries. Who does a Russian split or a cantilever immediately before a jump? amazing. Too bad it doesn't look like he's getting any credit for it. I wonder if that stumble at the end will be counted as a fall. Even with the fall, nice job. He did so much better than his grand prix events and complicated choreography. Han Yan really did start a streak of good skates. Maybe not perfect, but they've all been enjoyable.
  9. This overuse of "great"is so annoying. Seriously, the "great" Misha Ge now. Kazuki's landings are all a bit iffy so deservedly low GOE's but still, mostly clean and such great performance quality. Love the way he just throws himself into the program. I do like how effusive Paul is about a good skate.
  10. Beautiful skate. Let's hope that, like the SP, this will begin the streak of great skates for the rest of the night
  11. Just a guess, but I'm thinking that commentary during the program means that it's easier to get copyright strikes when people copy their stream. There's really no way to prove that no commentary clips are yours. I understand why they would want to make their footage distinctive but still, they could accomplish the same thing by having a small ISU logo in the corner or with just a few comments during the programs instead of all the way through. Perhaps if enough people made that suggestion they would consider it. Satoko is skating to it this year. She actually was inspired to skate to it by watching Roman skate to it last year.
  12. I've gotten 30 minutes of sleep in 29 hours and now I'm pumped full of adrenaline. Hopefully the shot of Nyquil is powerful enough to overcome the Yuzu fever so I can be well rested before my guests arrive. Good night (morning?) all. What a great men's SP
  13. I wonder if the judges here were also directed to not give too many 10's like at Europeans. Such an unfair directive - it only hurts 3 skaters - Yuzu, P/C, and Sui/Han.
  14. Boyang Jin 4lz/3t - breaks at the waist but I think clean 4t fcsp4 3 axel cssp4 cssp3 stsq4 All the jumps were scratchy on the landings but the BV will make him the #2. So happy to see him at least landing all the jumps after he worked so hard to improve everything else. 95.83
