    I suspect when we all calm down we might even question the 9.5's for skating skills. And, I will admit that honestly, PE and I scores have troubled me for quite awhile for lot's of skater's, but particularly Chan. And, I will also admit that I am still too "6.0ified" in my first viewing to be objective, particularly with a skate like tonight's skate. That said, it was pretty darn good interpretation, so what, maybe that should be like 7.5 or 8? I dunno. I still wish I could have been in that arena.

    Ok, so back to interpretation....I know that Dorispulaski has written about how she/he hates that Chan just has music in the background, that someone with his skills should be more musical. I would love to hear his/her more objective take on the PCS in general and I and PE in particular. At the same time --- it is amazing to me how a clean and powerful performance can overwhelm, for me, the importance of these distinctions. So, I can't stop gushing.....sorry if it offends.

    SkateSkates, last year D/W received a perfect 10 for their POTO interpretation. If they do, he does.

    I half joked about this scenario before: The factor for PCS is 2 so that its ceiling is exactly 100, supposedly to match the presumed TES ceiling. Now that Patrick has scored over 100 on TES, making it a real possibility in an international competition...........

    eta: I got it! Patrick Chan is underscored in PCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There's a difference between the CBCSports.ca website and the CBC main network (or CBC television). There's also CBC bold, a cable channel. Radio-Canada is the Quebec equivalent of CBC television.

    I'm watching it on CBC. Basically Patrick bombed practice - he didn't land the quads at all (according to Irving).

    here's hoping the US sees the same sort of skates from Ryan Bradley this week...

    I believe jettasian was being facetious. He normally is very supportive of Patrick (at least, he was one of the few brave souls who was defending Patrick during Skate Canada).
    Ah, I feel so honored to be called a brave soul. That's too much, but I'll take it

    Chantastic all the way, even when he's down and beaten, I have always support him.

    Wow, Wow, Wow! What an incredible Canadian Nationals! Patrick Chan! I am officially a Patrick Chan fan now! I was afraid of saying anything before the Canadian Nationals, for fear of jinxing him. This is just what I have been waiting for!

    From a quadless-Chan last year to one of the most consistant quad guys this season, first outing was with a quad in SP and a quad in LP. Now one quad in SP, two quads in LP, one in combo, all perfect, and 3A, total 7 triples, and a 2A long program still with complicated footworks, first class spins. Can't get any better than that! What an incredible, incredible guy!!!!!

    197.07 is too high? Who cares?! If any skater could do it like this, he'll deserve the same. I'm not going to waste my time to try to find any flaws to prove that he does or doesn't deserve the score he got. The truth is Chan is the best in the world right now. This time, he proved it on the ice.

    I don't know if someone has already answered your question (there are so many posts in this thread!), but in case no one has, Elladj is 20 years old (his birth date is Nov. 9, 1990).

    No, no....ImaginaryPogue was saying that on CBC they said Chan was NOT landing the quads in practice....so I though that was funny given the outcome of tonight.

    and Siberia82, thanks for the info. I hope he continues to shine, I really enjoyed his (Balde that is) program tonight and think it might have been the first time I saw him skate.
