    BOI poll: favorite men

    Here are the results of the recent Internet poll conducted by Blades on Ice magazine, for favorite men. Any comments?

    1. Alexei Yagudin (no surprise)
    2. Kurt browning (yay for the new dad)
    3. Todd Eldredge
    4. Timothey Goebel
    5. Brian Boitano
    6. Alexander Abt (ahead of Plushenko!)
    7. Scott Hamilton (tie)
    7. Evgeny Plushenko (tie)
    8. Ilia Kulik
    9. Kevin van der Perren (go Kevin)
    10. Elvis Stojko (he's actually 11th, because of the tie, but who's counting?)

    Same question I had for the Ladies.

    Interesting that Kurt is still so popular. He's been around for some time and one of those great skaters who never got an Oly gold.

    Interesting that Tim is up there and ahead of so many!!

    Interesting Kevin van der Perren is on the list since I believe there are no other 2nd tier skaters on the list. He must be very popular in Europe because if you don't go to live competitions, you don't see him.

    A little surprised that Scott is number 7. It seems from this list that there must be somewhat of a younger group voting. Abt?

    Tim GOebel won a bronze medal at Olympics, big accomplishment for him, and had the skate of his life in last Worlds to the point many thought he should have won. He's very popular right now, especially among American fans.

    It's not that surprising to see him there, although I'm not sure what his result would be if the poll was conducted 10 years from now on, for example. After turning pro (or even before that, if he doesn't manage to keep winning medals) I'm sure the result would be very different, but that's just me

    No big surprise for me about Alexei being #1, he is always #1 with me. I am surprised that Evgeni is #7.

    Those polls are only good for a laugh. Evgeny in seven place is probably the biggest joke in that list :D

    Maybe Curious meant that Evgeny should have been rated higher?!

    Kulik holding strong at #8. Guess my 978,989 votes helped. J/K. They only let you vote once per ISP code. Good thing I can get around to so many apartments in NY so easily. And to think, all those New Yorkers bought my line about Girl Scout cookies via the Internet, if they would just let me use their computer for a moment.

    Just joking, Jaana. Ilia actually got all his votes without me and deserved every one. I didn't even know BOI was doing the poll, otherwise you know he would have been first, lol.
