    Small text in the quick reply, advanced reply and quote reply. Text in my actual post is fine.
    I appreciate Paula's hard work and patience is my middle name.

    Shawn Sawyer's SP and LP videos??

    Hey all. Hope you all enjoyed 4CC's. So happy for Rippon, Bradley and Sawyer!

    This may be a bit much, but if you don't mind, does anyone have, or know of, videos of Shawn Sawyer's Short and Long Programs at 4CC that I could download? There is nothing on youtube and I am anxious both of those lovely performances again (both the sskating and his fabulousness in the kiss and cry)!

    If anyone can help, that would be so appreciated!

Kevin has never fared well with the ISU judges and tech panels (although Chipeur had two dreadful GP events) because he consistently URs, has sloppy landings, and his presentation is still not quite on a par with the top men.

    Quads aren't the key to success unless they are completely rotated and the other jumps are rotated and landed well with good flowout. Kevin needs more guidance than his current coach can possibly provide.
    I definitely agree with this.

I hope i still get to see Shawn skate next season. Ryan Bradley moved up, though with Kevin iam always slightly disappointed when someone has a strong short and its so high it holds them up to medal even with a poor free, but Kevin did skate so well at Nationals in the free so does have it in him. Though didn't seem to bold well for him having been the favourite after the short.
    I've been wondering if Shawn is going to skate next season. I like him and want him to, but he has been around a long time and is 25 so I was wondering if he wanted to retire even though no one's said anything about it.

    I would love to see him back next season too. His free program at 4cc was about the best ive seen him skate. So glad i was able to view it. He had a fully rotated 3 axel, and i think this element has improved though he did have slightly a 2 footed landing. If he could get this clean, i think he could have quite a good season next year. Perhaps Chiper might even retire. Both Rippon and Shawn Sawyer's free program are worth watching at 4cc.

    I do wonder if one last season is in the cards? Someone on another forum was comparing Bradley's and Sawyer's Amadeus programs and saying that Bradley "sold it better". While Bradley's was indeed amazing, and he deserved the marks he received, both programs are different and incomparable in that regard. Both skaters are different temperaments.

    I also wonder if it would be better for Sawyer to leave now on a good note. His seasons in the last few years were up and down and this was one of the few times it ended relatively "well" with that great free program. Whatever Sawyer does I just hope he's around for a long long time with more great work.

    He had mentioned wanting to pursue an art career, although I don't know how far he could take that, especially in this economy. If he plays his cards right, it could work out. Apparently a few of his paintings are Modigliani inspired. I wish he'd post some of his work on a website already! Hurry up Shawn! Your fans are waiting! :D

    Adam Rippon won, in stellar fashion. Ryan Bradley and Shawn Sawyer also had great free skates.

    Any links to Rippon's FS yet? I'm dying to see the performance that vaulted him from 7th to win the gold. Woohoo!

    um... Bradley had a FANTASTIC LP skate at Nationals... the reason he didn't make the team was he bombed the SP (and according to reports he did the almost exact same thing here at 4CCs)
