    Saw on Instagram that Patrick was on his way back to Detroit to train for WTT. Hope he finds a lot of friendship and support there.

Then Patrick showed up in a lacy short white dress, quite pretty except it was on him and there was a large transparent patch showing part of his white underwear.
    I will be stunned to death!

    All the possibilities already exist right now but the future is always in a flux, to be determined by what each and all of us choose.
    Our future lies in our thoughts and deeds. If we live the world with kindness, we leave a better place for our children for they are the arrows and we the bows.

    I could PM you some probabilities I see at this time.
    PM me!

    I think friends mean a lot to Patrick. Wherever he goes, he always talk about being surrounded by friends as one of the reasons he moves to a place. I could see from a practice vid during Skate Canada 2012 that Blade, Amodio and himself get along very well. Body language tells a lot. Glad that he has, besides Blade, Weaver and Poje, other skater friends to motivate each other on.

    Here's a picture of Patrick with girlfriend Tess and models for Tess's fashion show in Ottawa.
    I think Tess needs to remind Patrick to get some formal shoes to go with the suit!

    Haha! That's kind of the style these days, you'd be hard pressed to find any young man at a fashion show sporting both a suit and dress shoes. It's either a suit and "fun" shoes or more casual with more of a "statement" shoe. Although I think he could have gone with a cooler looking type of sneaker and not so much a trainer.

    ^^^ The white laces just stick out like a sore thumb. Patrick needs to shop for a range of shoes.. of course together with Tess!
    Max Aaron said that Patrick is fashionable and I don't buy that because I have never thought of Patrick as being a fashion icon. I am sure his wardrobe has changed since Tess became his girlfriend. I like his recent casual smart suit he wore at a fund raising event White Oaks Mall.

    Do you mean Elladj Balde? (Do his friends call him Blade for fun??)

    Since WTT is drawing near, one of TV Asahi sports-related programs has started to shift their focus on figure skating and they zeroed in on Patrick this week.

    @3:02, he's using the Normatec compression pump to relax his lower extremities. First time I've seen him use it.

    Thank you zydeco88. He has used the Normatec compression pump before in 2012. I think some of the clips may be old ones. Hmm.. AprilSnowy alias Japan Bureau, can you kindly translate the comments of the older man and young lady? Thanks.
    I think there are a number of good skaters in every team. It will be a close fight. Good luck to all teams!

    I forgot.. thank you to figuristka too for the pix of Patrick and Tess. I am sure it's taken by Jeremy. Wow.. what an Easter .... having to eat on a make shift towel on the floor. Looks like whoever live there, just moved in.

    Excuse me for my poor writing skill in English as always.

    The older man is Mr. Sano, the first Japanese medalist at the Worlds in 1977.
    He was explaining how good Patrick's skating is, saying he can keep the position of his head in the air even while bending and stretching his knees when he skates, on the other hand, poor skaters' heads go up and down while skating.

    The young lady is Shizuka Arakawa who won the gold medal in Turin Olympic.
    She is saying that people used to say Patrick would be unbeatable once he got any harder jumps (such as quads) under his belt and now that his quad has become a powerful weapon for him, he's been developing into a flawless skater.

    As far as I remember, she speaks highly of Patrick as an athlete at every opportunity, always appreciating his sincere attitude toward this sport.

    Thanks AprilSnowy. Japan Bureau rocks! I like to listen to all these old timers talk and analyse other skaters. They pick up little things which I can't and I learn from them just like I learn from knowledgeable commentators.

    Patrick struggles in his LP at WTT. I hope he gets to rest and feels motivated for next season. Part of me hopes he get s technical coach and if more comforable with Lori Nicol, goes back to her for his LP. I think he has improved artistically this year but lost some of his consistency during competition for his free program. Wish him well. Want him on the podium at Olympics so much.
