    I picked Boitano, but I probably should have picked other: Button.

    How can I chose between Brian and Alexei?! Brian was my favorite from my childhood, Alexei was my favorite in high school... I went with Yagudin, because I was only 5 when Boitano won and the sport has evolved so much since then. Yagudin was the master of competitive skating.

    wow a poll where I don't have to feel guilty choosing! ha ha! Scott Hamilton all the way for me. he's the reason I fell in love with the sport and stuck with it after my aunt (and skating buddy) passed away... he's an inspiration on and off the ice and a fantastic ambassador for the sport (and cancer research). Met him in 2008, his youngest has the same birthday as me (but different years, of course)... yup... Scotty.

    For me, Kulik hands down, even with that awful costume he wore.

    I had much less trouble choosing this time than for the women. Alexei!! Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant. Kulik and Botaino are probably tied for second for me. Kulik for his exquisite skating and Botaino for the momentousness of his victory.

    I voted for Alexei Yagudin, but if I could, I'd also vote for Ilia Kulik simply for the sheer beauty of his skating and that magnificent spread eagle-into-triple axel he used to do.

    Has to be Scott Hamilton, even though he messed up his LP a bit.
