    Lysacek not showing up at gala? - Nope! He'll be there.

    I just read from his twitter that he is about to take off for LA. So the Olympic champion doesn't show up at gala and just goes home? Too sad that I can't see him this weekend

    I really don't want to believe that. Not that I'd miss his skating but he is the gold medalist...

    The gala is what, 6-7 days away? Plenty of time to fly back. He probably wants to get away from the media and relax at home until then. I hopes he would be in the stands for Mirai, but whatever he wants. Maybe he really wants to get that Aston Martin.

    maybe he wants to celebrate with family and friends for a few days? LA is not far to fly from Vancouver. Though somehow it would seem more "Olympian" to stick around for the duration, cheering on teammates and whatnot... -- but I sure ain't no olympian - who would i be to judge?

    Maybe he just wants to party in the USA.

    Sorry folks I hope he stays in LA. IMHO he should never have won because his skating is sloppy, stiff and he's awkward. Sometimes when he kicks frontwise (made up word) he reminds me of a can-can dancer. Most of the comments I have read are in agreement with this conclusion; blame the judges!!

    Really? We must be reading different accounts. Evan won. Get over it, already.

    I don't think anyone would call Evan's skating sloppy.... even those who do not like his skating: safe, steady, even boring he may be. Sloppy - NO. Coming out of jumps he is lickety split clean.
