    I liked it the way it turned out. Would have changed the silver, but that's OK.

    Daisuke and Joubert. But after seeing the top 3 skated, the Olympic champion of my heart is Evgeni Plushenko.

    Johnny. No way was he worse than Olympic champ, let alone others.

    Oda had my favorite program, Chan is my favorite all around skater, but Lysacek, who I do not like, won it fair and square, his victory unquestionable. So Lysacek it is, he skated and behaved like a true champ.

    Since Stephane was tight and Jeremy was too far behind, my belongs to Daisuke! *sighs* If only he landed that quad.

    But I still congratulate Evan on winning the title.

    I just about voted Dai as I rooted for him but then decided to switch to Johnny for one simple reason - the poor thing really had it hard. They hammered him for the most ridiculous reasons, his personality and life-style choices included, in both SP and LP and Dai did get a medal so the vote goes to Johnny, the underdog and let's hope against hope that the drone doesn't show up in Torino and that Johnny gets a chance there! Would love to see him on the podium!

    KING PLUSHENKO "ONE OF THREE IMMORTALS" IS THE ONE & ONLY OLYMPIC CHAMPION OF MY HEART (I'm like Elizabeth Taylor in that way; she was MJ's fan till the bitter end, come what way, through thick & thin; while others fled, she stayed)

    Kozuka! Kozuka! Kozuka! Just too sweet. I finally got to meet him, and he did not disappoint! Seeing him land that quad... it was my Olympic moment Daisuke has been calling him "Sochi-no Hope" (the hope of Sochi-- for Japan, of course). I believe it!

    (Oh, and Johnny for silver because his performance was the only one that really reached waaaaay up to the cheap seats I had, and Patrik for bronze because... well... I AM a Canadian!)

    I love Johnny and Evan and they both have a place in my heart, but since Evan is the real Olympic Champion, my vote goes to Johnny. He deserved way better than what those nasty judges did to him; Johnny deserved at least the bronze medal and after Plushenko's less than stellar fs, I would go as far as to say silver. Johnny willl always be the Olympic Champion of my heart--no one else consistently blows me away like Johnny Weir (Evan is a close second though).

    Champion of my heart? Easy. Johnny. He broke my heart and made me cry Thursday night. The only program that brought me to tears. His heartfelt performance was the highlight of the games for me thus far. I would have loved to see Plushenko win gold because I admire his athletic prowess (which is what I think is the hallmark of men's skating), but had Dai landed that quad, I wanted him on top of that podium. He was the truly the most balanced skater, with both amazing athleticism and great artistry.

    My thoughts exactly. Just for that mistake, Im ok with him not being on top. If Dai had landed it ,all Quad Lovers and COP worshippers should be bowing at his feet right now.
