I think Lysacek ought to come back and try to become the first man in fifty years to win back to back golds.
As for annoying the skate god, it's not only ptf, there were people who applauded when Miki Ando missed a jump because it would mean his/her favourite would win, or some who wished Patrick would fall several times.
People said the same thing about Plushenko returning in 2009! "Oh all the young people will beat him! They all know COP and he's ignorant!" He beat all but the reigning world champion! He beat the 2006 world champion and the 2007 world champion. Some are saying Chan will be world champion 2011, 2012, 2013 and that's all locked up and 2014 Olympics will be a Chan coronation. It seems Plushenko wants to medal. If Plushenko had competed in 2009 and been in the last group in Vancouver I doubt any of the judges who gave him fives in trans in the SP would have given him fives. Judges ranked him lower than Van Der Perren and Weir because the default score for no transitions SP's were around 6 and not fives!!
But I m not that thrilled he wants to compete anyway, healthywise.
So yes if Russia is bombed or something just before Sochi Olympics then maybe Plushenko would have a chance. Otherwise no.
^ If Phaneuf had skated like Yuna where would she have placed?
So yes if Russia is bombed or something just before Sochi Olympics ..Maybe if yourself was bombed or something->>how does this sound?She was gifted it by the judges as a pity gift for what happened in Japan.
So much for all the talks here about musical choices, artistry, that all of us need to be cultural Einsteins and sensitive as daizies to appreciate this sport, I find these comments completely obnoxious not to say a worse word.
