    I am, this was a legendary skate. The moment he finished I was thinking that if he was skating like this in Vancouver he would have got gold, silver and bronze altogether!

    It's actually not very dramatic. The fact is that in this and other sports, the vast majority of the time people who participate follow the rules with integrity. Listen to Jean Senft, one of the judges at this very competition and also the judge who blew the whistle on vote trading at the 1998 Olympics. Despite what she went through and saw, she says, "I really believe that 99.9 percent of judges are totally honest. It's just that tiny percentage who are not that you have to worry about." Fans who expect results to be skewed to their own misgivings instead of what actually happened are going to be frequently disappointed. They don't deserve to enjoy it, and most of the time, they won't.

    Had Patrick walked on water, some people would ridicule him for not kowing how to swim.

    What else can they do? Haters have got to hate.

    Other than Chan's predictably ridiculous over the top score it was a very enjoyable event. Chan's performance, outrageous score notwithstanding, was excellent of course. Sawyer had the performance of his life, it was great to see. Russel making the podium and possibly the World team was a great moment for him too. Reynolds came back with a decent effort, and Balde shows promise as well.

    I know, but they're trying to kill my buzz.

    That's interesting, because Patrick Ibens claims that the situation is completely the opposite.

    I think Reynolds should be sent to Worlds instead of Russel or atleast have a skateoff at 4CCs. The CSA said they would consider more than just Nationals results so we will see if they are true to their word. I actually like Russel more than Reynolds but realistically.....

    i was really upset with what seemed to me like high scores for Chan earlier in the season with falls. Then lot's of people went through the rules and protocols and explained most of the points, which led me to question some of the 'system." then others explained the pros and cons of the system and my head sort of imploded. But my point now: Chan could get 400 for that program as far as I'm concerned. I mean, really, who cares??? He so totally won and so totally skated so great and so much better than ever before. I can't stop thinking about how great it was.

    Nobody can kill your buzz. It's yours to own and to enjoy. They are constantly killing their own buzz, day in and day out. That, we can't do much about.
