    Is it Stephane not coming?

    I won't have dream podium - too much heart breaking.

    3. Ryan Bradley (you did say we could be unrealistic )

    Ryan has three quads planned so I wouldn't say a bronze medal is completely unrealistic! I would totally love a podium with Contesti, Verner, and Bradley and considering they are big headcases, if all three did manage to be clean, the judges might get excited and they could get really high scores . Realistically though, I bet they will not make the top 10, or they will squeak in there just barely. I'm not expecting much from Jeremy either - I'm trying to prepare myself for what happens all too often.

    If the US Men bomb they could lose a spot for next year. If we see Jeremy and Ryan struggle then Johnny would have to place pretty high to keep the three spots.

    oh, of course I definitely think Ryan Bradley has upset medal potential ... - I just love his skating and his LP this year is to die for. His problem seems to be that he gets really excited after landing his first jumps and gets so into the performance he can't concentrate. But I am very happy to get to see his long program one more time this year.

    I hadn't even thought of that possibility. Kinda makes you appreciate Evan's competitiveness even more ... it'd be very sad if that happens not really because of the three spots themselves but because Jeremy and Ryan ARE so talented. I have hopes they will show the world what they can do though, especially Jeremy. And Johnny of course, I expect to do well. I'd be awesome to see him on the podium too and not impossible with Evan and Stephane out of the picture.
