Typical. The Japanese kid (who may be a nice kid) falls on his butt -- literally -- TWICE but wins gold!? There can be no explanation... no logic.

Oh wait: We just don't understand. right?

Scott Hamilton was visibly upset last night, but it has to do with levels of difficulty. The stuff the Japanese skater did right were difficult enough to earn high marks while the stuff the other skaters who had clean performances did wasn't as technically difficult and didn't score as high.

Plus:

* Hanyu had a lead from his winning short program.

* Chan didn't skate cleanly, either.
