    For some bizarre reason unknown to me, Skate Canada holds exhibition practice prior to the medal ceremonies for pairs, ladies, and ice dance and the hall of fame presentations, which are followed by the mens' LP and mens' medal ceremony, which is then followed by the exhibition gala. Crazy scheduling if you ask me.

    I've always been of the mindset that each disciplines' medal ceremonies should take place at the end of the disciplines' final programs, not the day after. Also, I've always thought exhibition practice should take place right before the exhibition gala, not several hours before it. But hey, it's just my opinion.

    The US Nationals this year have an even crazier schedule spread over two weeks. Madness!

    Thanks museksk8r, does make it rather difficult for the competitor's in the senior men's. I had not checked the schedule and thought the men's event would be much earlier since it was a Sunday. I assumed it would be first on the schedule.

    I couldn't get on the forums during the mens competition, it was a pretty good competition.

    Patrick won (268), Vaughn in 2nd, Kevin Reynolds in 3rd, Shawn 4th, Joey 5th

    Shawn won't go to the Olympics and no medal for Joey!

    Could someone report about Ten's effort in the long? I felt so bad for him after the short. Was he able to redeem himself?

    Also, do the top two from nationals automatically go to the Olympics?

    Big error in sending Chipeur over Reynolds. There is no way Chipuer is 9 points ahead of Reynolds in the PCS.

    Jeremy had a really hard fall on his opening triple axel, but was able to gain his composure after some time and had a decent skate. He moved up to 7th position.

    The top 2 aren't automatically going to the olympics, but that is what has happened in the past. I'm rooting for Vaughn to go.

    Jeremy skated well although not perfect. Can't remember the details but his skating was smooth and with very good presentation. As for the top three, patrickis in a league of his own but this was not his best skate. However his speed, flow and artistry were beyond the others by far. Vaughn's speed was very impressiveas well. I don't think that comes out on tv. Kevin's jumps were spectacular and his artistry has definitely improved, but Vaughn was definitely better.

    for those that didn't get to watch, Patrick Chan won, and his marks were inflated. He did however skate very well, the only error being a step out of his first triple axel. He landed the second one, with a double toe on the end.
