    but which Czech do you mean - Brezina?
    Perhaps he needs a bit more schooling as I don't see him quite ready to challenge for the podium in Vancouver.

    But for 2014 - yea baby

    True patriot, lol! Funny expression! At least you have the option To go or Not to go (with nationality) so you are the lucky ones!
    Cause If i had to go with nationality option to have a favorite skater... I even wouldnt have known figure skating exists!

    Takahashi has actually won me over since leaving Morozov. I like his attitude and love his SP. I hope to see him skate well in Vancouver. Not too well, mind - but he can have my imaginary bronze .

His performances just keep building and hold my attention throughout. Other competitors often start to fade after the halfway mark. I find myself lookin at my watch at the three minute mark -- gee, it seems like he has been out there a long time.

    Now if Evan would just wear costumes with a little fuller cut, so he didn't look like he was six feet tall and weighed 97 pounds..

    I was genuinely happy for Evan when he won Worlds. He deserved it and like MM noted, he makes the most of the talent he has. What I do resent is the way he's being marketed for this season as though he's the most talented, hardest working person to ever set skates on the ice. He never makes mistakes, the judges just don't recognize how great he is . And I do think that he's been overmarked on PCS for a while now. He's not the only one, but he's skating this weekend, so I'm hardly going to complain about the judges holding up Stephane Lambiel.

    That's all I can manage. Cut my finger and typing seems very hard right now.

    Yes, a true one. What's so funny about that? A true patriot is, IMO, a person who tends to think flapping arms deserve highest PCS there is, because it's good for the country.


    Themistocles and his partner.... didn't they retire last year?

    A decade ago, when she burst onto the scene as a thirteen-year-old in a Kristi Yamaguchi Christmas special, she not only won the cutie-patootie award, they had to retire the trophy.

    At her first U.S. Nationals (in singles) she gave Michelle Kwan a scare by winning the short program. Then in the long, she fell on her head and knocked herself out, but was able to gether her wits enough to continue with the program.

    She was supposed to be Miss Next, but hip injuries did her in.

    not sure if we're talking Plushy and Russia or Evan and the USA... but I don't equate skaters and their success or failure as having much of anything to do with a country as a whole... good bad or otherwise... just another member of a sports team (in Evan's case it's Team USA... Plush is a member of Team Russia)

    I didn't. That was me being humorous and funny. Or at least, trying to. But of course I failed as usual. Story of my life.

    My favorites have to have: 1. Great Flow. 2. Big Tricks. 3. More Transitions than crossovers. 4. Constantly moving to the beat of the music.

    They do not need glitzy costumes.

    My heart was broken for Tomas, poor boy, what's going on? He looked so sick, must be a really tough day for him! Hope he'll have a great comeback tonight. Go Tomas!

    Meanwhile, I'm very happy for Evan, this program is growing nicely, inspite of the UR 3A, I think he did better than Cup of China and the lead is very well deserved.

    I watched him live several times, 07 Nationals, 08 Skate America and SOI, I'm really impressed. I don't think skater's popularity on certain figure skating forum is representitive to the general public's preference at all, at least for Evan's case, he's definitely the crowd's favorite in the arena, he brought the house down! One thing I really appreciate is that he always gives it everything and always skates with full commitment, energy and passion, he really stands out in those aspects.

    I finally made it onto this site! I'll make the best of it.

    Little late for this but I'm so happy that Shawn Sawyer won his first GP medal. I just love watching this guy skate his heart out!

    Can someone tell me where I can upload his fabulous SA exhibition?

    To upload, you can always use youtube. If you want to limit distribution and keep the quality of the clip high, I recommend http://www.mediafire.com

    If what you mean is download, Shawn's EX can be downloaded here:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?lzjhzktdymz

    The file is a .avi file. If you can't play it, send me a PM.

    Hi Doris. Yes, I meant download lol. I really should edit more often. I sent you a PM .

    Mathman, thank you for the welcome. My computer signs into multiple networks and different IP adresses every time, and some are apparently not allowed onto this site. It's wierd because I never posted anything on this forum before now. If it continues to happen (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't), I will try to call my IP and figure it out.

    Anyway, I like this site.
