    Kurt Browning's blog on the forthcoming GPF. He's not picking any winners. Smart fella ... can you imagine being lynched by 20 skaters and their fans.

    Wishing Patrick all the best.

    All the best to Patrick..... cannot wait for the weekend.

    I got my on ice tickets for CSOI April next year.
    Since he is in Canada Patrick may also skate at the Ontario Award ceremony. I went two years ago and saw him - in the small arena he was just 12 feet away when he did his jumps. Wow what an experience.

    For those going to Sochi for the GPF- please honour him with an extra cheer on our behalf.

    Russian bureau - we will expect special reports from you - please and thanks!

    Oh emdee, you are really on the ball regarding CSOI! So you have got your seat right next to the ice? Wow.. always envious of those who have the opportunity to watch up close. I am soo envious. Give Patrick and all the fabulous skaters two hugs.. one from you, and one koala hug from the faraway Aussie Bureau. And of course, your turn to report come April 2013.

    What's Ontario Awards? Sounds similar to our Order of Australian awards where Australian citizens are recognised for their achievements or meritorious service.

    Good luck to Patrick and all the skaters. I think Men and Ice Dance will be most competitive this GPF.

    Spiky - On ice means actually down on the ice....
    Skate Canada Ontario chapter has an Awards show and banquet and its a lot of fun especially if PC is there. Its cheaper than other shows and Patrick received his award after his first WC four feet away from me. They also had a banquet with the skaters but I was too tired and went home instead.

    Saw this year's CSOI on TV yesterday and they are really headlining Patrick in their ads for 2013.

    These palm trees look real, not plastic.

    Anyway, all I wish is Patrick takes the big title and the biggest title.

    Blue, Maybe they are real. Plenty of palm trees in south or France,Spain etc.

    Apparently when googling I found that they enjoy a subtropical climate so some species of palm trees grow there.
    If their average winter temp is 6 degree how the heck are they going to have downhill etc unless its up in the mountains.

    Re the mild temperatures in Sochi:

    I've seen several photos of skaters wearing shorts. Example:

    Yes, Fernandez has been appearing with the same Team Canada gang repeatedly in all their informal group shots -- tweeted by Moore-Towers, Moscovitch, Duhamel, and Radford.

    I have seen plants which I thought fake because they are flawless and vice-versa.

    Fernandez's the much loved adopted son of Canada. Go Team Canada.
