    So he was probably just talking about the programs he used there then... OK, so we still don't know what his new programs will be! :frown2:

    Donna - Johnny didn't skate at Liberty - he was there as a coach - so I think the author was just generally mentioning what his programs were planned to be. He is definitely using The Swan for his short program - it's his free skate music that is a mystery at the moment.

    I'm glad he's ditching "Liebestraum" for something edgier. He's used dreamy, romantic music for his last two FSs and a change is definitely a good thing. He needs to make a STRONG impression if he's going to medal at Torino.

    Yes, and no matter how scary he thinks it is, he'll need a quad too! I hope he can land one in competition soon.

    Hi Johnny! I hope you're having a good time in Simsbury and good luck for the next season. Have you ever felt annoyed or irritated when people have asked you when you're going to put in a quad in you're program?

    All the time. It's as if people don't realize how physically tough it is, and on top of that how mentally tough it is. Doing a quad in practice is one thing, but doing it in front of hundreds of glaring eyes is quite different. It's scary and I'm sure if there was a role reversal people wouldn't deal with it very well. Especially reporters and many skating fans.

    True enough, the reporters and fans won't have a quad in Torino.

    But Plushenko, Joubert, Lambiel, Li, Sandhu and Lindemann will.

    Very well said MM, and others will most likely too, seeing as an Olympic year seems like a time where everybody will step up and give everything they have. I wouldn't be surprised if Jeff Buttle came up with one.

    As will Griazev (if he makes it there), Klimkin (ditto), Dambier (ditto), and other lesser-knowns, as well as a not-so-lesser-known Goebel (most likely).

    Johnny with a quad....Priceless!

    I really want to see what Buttle's strategy will be this year. In the past, the times that he has attempted a quad it took so much out of him that the rest of the program suffered. At Worlds he decided to leave out the quad and go with a "whole package" type of skate, with emphasis on choreography and presentation.

    Yet another thing that will make this next season so exciting!! While I think it is possible for quadless men, especially those like Buttle and Weir (and even Lysacek) to have Oly podium potential, I think a quadless strategy relies on other's mistakes. I was thrilled to see both Buttle and Lysacek on the World podium this past season, but I don't think either (or the others) can count on a quadless strategy to put them on the podium next year. A quadless strategy seems by default to rely on the mistakes or withdrawls of others. I really hope the men's event does NOT turn out that way. So I hope ALL of them come on next season with quads!!!! The thought of Buttle and/or Weir and/or Lysecek with a quad or two, in the mix with the already "quaded" and lots of clean skates just makes me drool.

    Can't wait!!

    Did you scroll down far enough in the Q &A Thread in the temporary forum? After about ten posts the interview is copied. Everything went into the temp forum after the board was hacked

    I love the way he answers one of my questions. That I worry more about his costumes than he does! Well somebody ought to worry! I usually love his short program costumes, but struggle with the ones he chooses for the long program.
