    Wait. The quad counts then? So you can't do two quad toes, two 3A's and two 3toes, for example? My bad.

    museksk8r, you realize that you've actually complained more about Chan's performance here than praise it, right? Does that make sense to you?

    I'm just still so blown away. I almost feel like I did last year when I watched Yuna at the Olympics. That has to be the best men's LP I've seen since I don't know when...

    I thought he looked a little scared starting his program and I thought, oh no, if a skater this good lets himself get undone by Shawn's wonderful performance, he's a fool.... But he didn't! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!!!

    That crowd streaming out of the rink just must be elated after those two back-to-back performances.

    WOW! I'm still shaking. Two fantastic, absolutely amazing and breathtaking performances. I am so, beyond so, happy for Shawn. But, dang, Patrick, that was also truly amazing. Thanks is all I can really say...and....i'm so going to watch these two over and over and over again if they pop up on YouTube.

    Snowflake, seriously, thank you for finding this link. It was beyond a privilege to watch the final flight "live".

    He needed the Olympic experience to achieve what he just did. It's all part of the journey to true greatness.

    Seniorita is an almost fan. Hurray!!!! Go Chan! Also, I agree - I didn't want Shawn's program to end either. Thank goodness for Justin TV.

    Correct, hence the Triple Lutz + Triple Salchow is a very creative design to get around that inability to repeat the Triple Toe again in a combo.

    If you compare Chan's score at nationals to his international personal best, then do the same for other skaters, you'll find that Chan got around the same amount of inflation as everybody else. For instance, Joey Russell got 30 points over his international PB, while Chan got around 26 over his international PB. However, Chan skated his best LP ever while Russell still had room for improvement. But of course the haters are going to pretend anything above 100 is an evil conspiracy of blind judges where the sole beneficiary is Patrick Chan.

    If all you want out of every competition are arbitrary scores that satisfy your own personal grievances and prejudices, you do not deserve to enjoy this sport that thousands of athletes risk life and limb for.

    Chan's score was ridiculous but the placements were right, so I won't argue with the final results. I'm feeling very happy for Sawyer and Russell right now...

    It still strikes me as remarkable that in just one season, Patrick gains the quad (of course he's been training it for years, but he gets it this season and does it buttery-smooth) and then does it consistently.

    The ease with which he does them--if I wasn't paying attention to the rotations, they would pass my eyes for triples.

    Watched the Final Flight upstairs w/the Parents because for some odd reason when I've hit Record on the VCR, I get static/scratchy sound for some freaky reason. It's done that all weekend too. Just a tad worrisome as that's never happened before. Anyway...

    Way to go Newfie Boy!!! So happy for Joey and IIRC, that's the first Senior Medal of any Colour for a skater representing Newfoundland and Labrador. Congratulations to him and I'll bet there'll be a few toasts on The Rock tonight to Joey.

    Shawn...Oh Shawn...FINALLY!! I am so beyond thrilled for him I don't even know where to begin. I nearly wrecked the chair I was sitting in watching at the end of his performance. I was at 2002 Cdns when he won the Jr Title and...It's been a long road, but so deserved. I'm going to be a mess in a minute when that Silver Medal's put around his neck.

    And then there's Patrick. What more can be said except for this...

    Is he a man now Evgeni and Elvis?

    WOW!! Smart move taking out the second axel and putting in another quad. Both were gorgeous!!

    What a way to end Canadians this year. Thanks for the awesome show Guys!!

    I think some of the most memorable wins or great skates, for me, have been when skaters did their best at nationals; Galindo 96, Kwan 98, Abbot 2010, now Shawn and Chan 2011....amazing. really. I am so excited by these two amazing skates I am at a loss for words. Worlds is a big deal and I love that chan was wishing this was worlds in terms of skater priorities; but for fans like me, I loved tonight and loved that he did this at nationals. Shawn too - that program was amazing; from the first to the last note and the costume (then the hat in the KnC). I would sooooooo love to me in the stadium right now AND at the after party!
