    *laughing* but the others have much else: falling on the ice and stumbling.
    Is getting up the ice a new part of choreography or belongs it to transitions?
    Plushenko did not need this "much else" *g*
    If somebody don´t want to see the strength of a skater he will never see it.

    I love Evan Lysacek, I loved his LP, I loved last year's LP, I love watching him skate, I'm so happy he did so well in the LP and I would've loved to have seen him stay in 3rd. And that shot of him leaning onto his mom stole my heart forever.

    But... it it ok for me to say I wish he'd stop telling everyone how courageous he is? Maybe if he just told the story, someone else would have a chance to say it.

    I felt the same way, and I think Dick said something to the same effect. I was awe-struck four years ago watching Alexei, but this time the gold medalist did not make me feel wow'ed at all. That said, though, I thought his performance was good enough to win it (with others struggling) even if that was not the program I enjoyed the most.

    I read an article on a Japanese site that is very upset about Takahashi's scores. I am going to try and find it again, it was interesting.
