    Horrible music choices so far. It's an adagio of a bleeding bad day.

    And he does not have every right to skate tonight. There are people all over the forums on the internet who are outraged that he is at the gala and not Johnny.
    Canada (because they are the host nation) gets to pick which Canadians they want to skate in the gala. Chan would have been there no matter where he placed.

    Dube and Davison aren't skating are they - ? I was wondering why ... I guess the organizers decided to stick strictly to the top 5 regardless of nationality. Torino all of the Italians skated, IIRC.

    No, they aren't. That's why Joannie is wearing Jessica's dress

    Poor Daisuke on that camel. I haven't seen spin that bad since people insisted random kids plucked from the street had more of a right to skate in the gala than Johnny Weir.

    DesertRoad, going through this thread, I'm at a point where I don't even need to look at the handlename to guess which comments are coming from whom.

    Just about all the negative, overly unnecessarily critical ones are from you.
    It's just a gala for goodness' sakes.
    Relax some and enjoy it!

    That is not the only point here - the point is that he has badly represented Canada by his behaviour and that he was given higher marks than he should have been and was placed above Weir unfairly.

    And none of the other non-medalist Canadians who competed are at the gala, so Chan was once again given special treatment. If he is there, so should Dube & Davison, Langlois & Hay, Crone & Poirier, Cynthia Phaneuf and Vaughn Chipeur.

    I was wondering why it didn't look like the dress fit correctly. I am imagining that Joannie was looking for a dress that suited the occasion, and the deep purple and discreet styling would have done it. And yeah, I'm off too ... I love galas, they celebrate sport and achievement, and are supposed to be fun. When people can't let go and enjoy it ... that rather makes me want to exit gracefully.
