Agreed! I think his new LP is a masterpiece and could potentially put him on the Olympic podium if he skates it well. I can't believe I'm typing that because normally I hate Phantom of the Opera (I dislike Davis and White's dance version, for example, this year, no matter how well-skated). I found his attitude in the interviews both after the short and long refreshing — no boo-hooing, just an acknowledgment that he didn't skate well and will be back for Canadian championships.I'm very glad Patrick is OK. He'll be back!
Enjoyed a number of the programs very much. My fav was probably Takahashi. Abbott could certainly play spoiler at American nationals for a spot on the Olympic team.
