    Which Program/Programs have Inspired You-So Far

    I have to say I was a little worried when I heard Jeff was no longer competing who would step up to the plate and take his place. I was absolutley inspired by Joannie Rochettes programs at skate Canada. My "hat is off" to Joannie. I love her long program and find her skating inspriring. I hope this is a good sign for things to come this season.

    I also love watching Patrick Chan skate. I thought he might be more of a technical skater, but his artistry and use of edges are really starting to develop. He has a "million dollar" smile when he is out there and can really being the audience in.

    I haven't seen that many, but I really liked Czisny's LP. I also like Wagner's SP.

    Yuna's LP, Joannie's LP, and Patrick's SP are very impressive this season.

    All of Lanbiel's programs have inspired me.

    I remember watching a few people around me in the arena getting emotional after his skate.

    I only follow men's figure skating, so this is what I've enjoyed the most from the guys for 2008/2009 so far:

    - Johnny Weir's SP (I know that I'm going to catch flak for this, but I really did think it was gorgeous!)
    - Patrick Chans' SP (What MESMERIZING footwork! )
    - Yannick Ponsero's SP (Just too cool. )
    - Shawn Sawyer's LP (I'm still high from the "high" he gave me from watching it in Ottawa! It's currently my favourite program of the season.)
    - Ryan Bradley's LP (Okay, so it's sleaze, not art, but I loved it just the same! Also, I got to see it live at SC, so my experience was heightened by the thrill of competition.)
    -Jeremy Abbott's SP (He could "sell" it better, but it's a beautiful program.)
    -Kristoffer Berntsson LP (I've said it once and I'll say it again: this man is made of AWESOME!!! )
    -Tomas Verner's LP (He lost some steam towards the end at CoC, but I thought his expression was lovely throughout the routine.)

    I was there, too! The Canadian crowd was ecstatic to see Ten skate so well after a not-so-good SP.

    Yes - I must add Shawn Sawyer to my list. I have been a huge Sawyer fan for three or four years now. Shawn does best spins and best spiral positions of any of the men on the planet. I really enjoyed his program. I look forward to seeing him again at the Canadians. It should be an exciting event!!

    I've loved Shawn's LP. I just cannot stop talking about him, his program, and his future prospect! I wish his program had less pieces of music because the changes of music are very busy and not necessarily well organized. But still, I think it a masterpiece thanks to the beautiful choreos and Shawn's beautiful moves!

    I've also loved Tomas's both programs. He has great charisma and happy energy!! Extremely inspiring!!

    I've also loved Mirai's both programs. She's so cute and adorable! I generally prefer happy programs to melancholic ones where skaters make faces. I can watch her skate over and again.

    I've loved Yuna's both programs, which has turned me to her fan. She is brilliant performing these. I also absolutely love her costumes. I am also glad that her lines (e.g., leg turnout, stretch) have improved over the years.
