Game on, guys.

Reigning Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko posted a monster
90.85 points early in the men's short program Tuesday night, daring
the competition to beat it. World champion Evan Lysacek and Japan's
Daisuke Takahashi came pretty darn close, setting up the most
riveting men's final since the "Battle of the Brians" in 1988 —
the last time the Olympics were in Canada.
