    Johnny looks fab. Totally confident and strong. YES!!!!!

    OTOH I'm banging my head every time I read a quote from him in the media. He's become the go-to guy for skating quotes. He shouldn't be thinking about anything but his programs right now.

    An awesome pic of Patrick Chan from his practice:

    He looks like a dab of paint come to life.
    Love the photo.

    why is it that skaters wear black and white top to bottom for practice, both men and women, for all competitions it seems.

    Sorry for being too lazy to pull out the link. But I read that Dai is taking rest today, Nobu landed 4-3 and a single quad, and Taka landed 3A but not the quad.

    Among the Japanese men, my money is on Oda. So little pressure and so good records and practice reports.

    Dai is too much hyped this season for being the symbol athlete of Japanese Olympic Committee regardless of where he actually may be. I fear that he is welcomed with disappointments if he ends up missing the medal. I hope that he is reconsidering with a cooler mind at home about his decision regarding the quad. His success rates in practice reports have sounded as bad as Miki's quad practice reports at Torino.

    Johnny report for today's practice.

    Tweets today from AP writer Nancy Armour:

    Look who busted out the quad in practice: @JohnnyGWeir. Brushed the ice with the other toe pick, but fully rotated and looked good in air. 18 minutes ago from TweetDeck

    Nice patriotic twist to @JohnnyGWeir's outfit: U-S-A spelled out in gold sparkles on right bicep. 30 minutes ago from TweetDeck


    .... OMG!!! Johnny's really gonna go for the quad! I'm going to faint. Someone fan me and get me some smelling salts. I hope he goes all out! NO REGRETS! That's his new motto.

    How ironic if Johnny lands the quad and Evan who has been working on the
    the last four years dosent even try one. This is the stuff movies are made of.

    Johnny has been having quad jumps in practice since like 6 - 7 years ago. He has done beautiful 4-3-2 in practice multiple times. But he has never had a single clean quad in competition. Did he say that he'll put a quad in LP this time? I don't think so. I'll believe it when I see his LP.

    If Johnny does a quad in SP, which I really doubt because he had never done so, I would think that he'll have a chance to medal. But again, I don't believe it.

    I think you may have nailed the magic of figure skating lol. The drama! The action! The suspense! It's better than most movies.

    I like the fact that it can take you from sublime loveliness to the thrills of power and peril in the course of an evening. It's got everything.
