Oh Verner! Just when I though he is ready to step up to the front, too bad about the fall on the quad thou.
He can still get a bronze, if he skated clean and others flater. At least 5-6 guys ahead of him will not threaten him on a normal day. The question is 2nd to 4th guy on the standing, will they deliver a clean skate!!
At least the press will stop bitching about, how the streak is finally over. They been complaining about, american skater not winning the SA for, the last 4 or 5 years.
Skate Canada has Chan, Takahashi, Abbott, Contesti and Brezina. With a Fifth place finish here, Verner outscores Brezina in fourth, Contesti or Takahashi in third; Abbott in second comes to point differentials, and Chan is a non-contender.
After the interview with Evan we now know a little bit more about Evan's costumes.
Note to Vera Wang: Firebird cries out for color. Even if Evan does like black - black does not work for Firebird.
Tomas , I m frustrated, greek music has jinxed him?
I so like his straight sequence, his program has so many details.
i m so sorry K..he looked like he was ill?
I dont believe I didnt sleep for this disaster.
Amodio had the best skate of the night.
I wouldn't say his performances at TEB or Worlds 09 were bombs, in either program. Those were his last two competitions.
Agree, TEB was good.
If it's true about Tomas not feeling well, having fever, did he really have to skate?

Amodio did beat Evan's TES. Well done.
And I do agree with the 'deserved 1st'.
I did not stay awake, and looks like it was the right decision. I take it Evan Lysacek was the best in a rather underwhelming field - not surprising considering the USFSA pretty much set it up for him to win. Did he really deserve nearly seven points over Amodio in PCS, though?
Poor Tomas, is he really sick? He should WD and get some rest. Stay away from US hospitals, though, Tomas - they'll bankrupt you!
ETA: Evan Lysacek on his program and costume:
I'll withhold comment."I wanted to do something different this year," he said. In the past, his costumes have been either tuxedos or bull-fighting uniforms and his music has had a Spanish flare. When he was first introduced to the music and choreography, he said, "This is so not me." But then he fell in love with "such an interesting character."
"I love skating this program," he said, focused on challenging himself artistically.
