Yes, I thought Evan was a hair off in timing after seeing the GORGEOUS quad he easily reeled off in the warm up.
Johnny was 5th in the FS. He has A LOT of work to do. I used to think his jumps seemed so easy, so sure, but this season they seem tentative and low. Hopefully now that he made the team, he can shake off the nerves and skate full out at the Olys. He just seemed so nervous, tentative and labored, I wanted to reach through the screen and hug him! Evan seemed nervous too, but he still seemed crisp and confident. Jeremy was just on fire, totally in command of everything! I don't know...Johnny has taken so many hits these last couple of years. Hope all three are on at the Olys!

I have faith in the swan
The Men's Award Ceremony is up on IN if anyone is interested. I wish Johnny could have done better today, but his SP was to die for and I know the nerves just got to him today and he made two stupid mistakes. Evan to me was unusually bad esp the SLOW footwork and fall on the quad (but I give him props for trying it). Jeremy was brilliant and obviously deserved the gold. Hope Weir can peak in Vancouver.

I just hope Jeremy hasn't had the skate of his life today, and will have a letdown in Vancouver. In the interview after the competition, he talked about improving from competition to competition. I don't know how you improve upon this. I just hope he gains confidence from this competition because it shows that he can absolutely do it.
Does anyone else think Yuka Sato and Jason Dungjen are one of the cutest couples ever? I just love those two.
Ryan Bradley is just a wonderful skater and I hope he will do shows. He is a pleasure to watch.
Johnny made me so nervous watching him skate that I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

I'm upset Ryan isn't going to the Olympics, for some reason just the thought of having someone that talented at the Olympics is exciting. I mean, don't get me wrong, Johnny is great, but Ryan and his 4-3 in the short, and two quads in the long, if he were clean there, I think he could upset the favorites. Johnny is more consistent but you pretty much know what he will do. To me, Johnny is a skater like Alissa, very good, but at their best, still technically pretty standard, but on an off night, will still do fine. Ryan is more of a wildcard I would compare more to Mirai or Angela Maxwell, they can be amazing, but also will get lower scores should they mess up.
I want EXCITEMENT at the Olympics and for the men's event the only one that will excite is Jeremy is he has a repeat of these performances in Vancouver. Johnny and Evan will do the triples but no quads and not much charisma or humor, I mean did you HEAR the audience during Ryan Bradley's FS?
That is why in the ladies event, I will be a little upset if Sasha and Alissa will be the ones going, it just isn't exciting if you know they'll probably just do 3-5 triples with the hardest combination being a 3lz-2t to soft, mellow music. But that's just how I see it.
