    Gala

    Based on what I saw at gala, It looks like this year's Junior women's champ seems to have some potential. She has much better skating skills and jumps than last year's champ. Hope she doesn't follow the footsteps of most previous junior champs.

    One of the best reasons for Shawn to be on the podium is that we get treated to his show program.

    I'd watch him any time over Weir.

    Shawn and Moore-Towers/Moscovitch were both extremely entertaining

    Weir would never rip his shirt off during an exhibition. It takes him hours to get out of his elaborate gala costumes.

    But really why bring Weir up? Him and Sawyer are completely different skaters with different styles and skills. Weir isn't in this competition or competing this season. Do those two have a past rivalry I don't know about? Did Weir bump Sawyer off a gala in the past?

    When I watched Shawn last night in the gala, Johnny just popped in my head as a comparable artist. I realized Shawn never had the opportunity to be as appreciated. Given the grandioso direction Johnny is going, I am even more appreciative of Shawn's talent and artistry. I have always preferred pure talents much more than OTT costume and staging in performing arts.
