    You mean this one?

    Buttle's exuberance at the end of his flawless free skate in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he slapped the ice with both hands and screamed, is a classic. He said that he had always dreamed of such moments.

    "It's so weird when you're a kid, this is what you dream about," he said. "And to accomplish it definitely feels like a dream come true."
    Jeff is so humble and innocent.

    Yes, Bennett! Thank you so much! I'm trying to learn how to copy and paste links, (instead of writing them down manually), but I'm still having problems doing it.

    Jeff is such a humble guy. I that about him.

    While the appearance was his acting debut, Buttle, typically humble, says it was probably his finale as well.
    I totally love that sentence. There are enough skaters / other athletes out there who plan some big showbiz career after their competitive times are over - and let's be honest, it practically never works out. Isn't Buttle studying engineering or something like that?

    He seems to be such a great guy - and I just can't stop being happy for him.

    He is a student at U of Toronto studying chemical engineering, but taking a leave of absense to focus on skating.

    Side note:
    I wonder Where the Ben Mulroney guy would end up without his former Prime Minister father?

    Thanks so much for this. I had tears in my eyes when Jeff hit his final pose at the end of his free skate. It was one of those moments as he says in the article. As someone said "Jeff is a great guy." I am so happy for him and proud of him. I just wish I could make it to Stars on Ice in Vancouver this coming week to see Jeff skate; alas, I have to work.....
