    Good perspective. I wasn't saying that Patrick can't handle his nerves well (although the haters may say that). I was just rather surprised at the choice of words in the article. But, as spikydurian points out, journalists sometimes exaggerate. I would say a multiple National and World Champion knows how to handle nerves (regardless of the fact that some people think two of those three world titles were undeserved). I just hope this coming season is spectacular for Patrick!

    Thanks for posting that! It looks good. However, I would rather have Patrick do two quad toes and skate clean than be so focused on the quad salchow that the rest of the program suffers. If it's consistent and he feels good with it, that's another story. Good for him for wanting to work on it! Any ideas as to when/if we may see it in competition?

    The vid has been taken off. It was a good one. Maybe, he may do it for fun in his Ex since he joked about throwing in quadS and 3As?

    I imagine he won't put it in his programme unless it becomes extremely reliable, OR should he find himself pressed to gain extra points. He's probably comfortable with not having the highest potential technical score if others remain more or less the same as last season, however should one of the top skaters dramatically up their technical content, it's nice to know Patrick could develop a plan B.

    I think the vid was taken during the CSOI practice and it looks pretty solid. Yes, it is good to have a Plan B. He seems more comfortable with his quads this season.

    Welcome home, Emdee. It was last year's CSOI. No news of Patrick here since Thornhill that I know of, other than he said he was not doing anything new, but might throw in a quad sal and second triple axle for fun... a light hearted comment made at High Performance Camp. Also he posted a pic of him and Jeremy A. having a mock duel with mimed swords on the Detroit shore line. It was cute and I would have posted it had I any idea how.

    Here's a pix of Patrick with his coach Kathy and Marina taken at the Canton Rink. Not sure what he is doing there and when the pix was taken.

    You think he will continue to skate amateur pro Sochi?
    Is that a prediction?

    Enjoy your new life SF!

    If you do come to Skate Canada or Nats let me know in advance and we can try to get together. Coriana and ali_dorate will both be at Skate Canada and we could have a coffee. Luckiest1, Coriana and myself will be at Nationals.
