    Watching this Plushenko moment on NBC is awful. I really hate this for him. I don't know, it just really bothers me to see anyone who must've put in the blood, sweat, and tears these skaters do get hurt badly enough that they can't go on. My dad has a scar in that exact place on his back from a spinal surgery and I am in awe and amazed that Plushenko was able to ever continue on to do another jump, much less battle back to do quads and triple axels.

    I know it's the price of doing business, but I hate, hate, hate this happened. It really bothers me.

    When I read that Jeremy fell, I had no idea it was that painful looking. Damn, I'm surprised he got back up and finished as strong as he did.

    I keep wondering how awkward it is between Yuka Sato and Jason Dungjen. They don't seem to even glance at each other in the kiss and cry.

    He said it was the Russian crowd cheering him on,he couldn't let them down. Then they gave him a standing ovation when he finished. This is why I love the Olympics.

    Jeremy Abbott just NAILED his free skate performance. Too bad he couldn't have done that in the short program. Won't medal but he looked great today.

    I saw last night that Jason Brown skates last in the final flight. Good place to be for a guy who can bring the house down with his FS.

    I feel terrible for Amodio, that program had so many mistakes. Kevin Reynolds is up now.

    Yeah, it was mistake after mistake. I don't think there was one clean jump.

    Had to turn it on Seth, forgive me, so I could watch my boo Joubert skate. This music was totally wrong for him. Too introspective and intricate for his type of skating.

    Apparently Hanyu is not as artistic as Evan Lysacek. That Firebird program was the most stiff looking skate I've seen in a long time.

    Hell everybody fell today. Very disappointing. Jason Brown will take it in 2018.
