    I am in serious Patrick withdrawal!

    Fortunately the summer is so busy this year that I have very little time to think about it!

    I never thought of that! Now imagine Patrick, Buttle, Weir and Kurt trying to pin Yao Meng down like this!

    Withdrawal symptom will be gone in three weeks' time, Emdee. You get to see Chiddy's new LP soon at Thornhill competition. I don't know whether I can watch the live streaming (apparently there will be) because Toronto is 10 hours behind Brisbane meaning .. 8.00pm Toronto time is 6.00am Brisbane time. I may have to rely on your report.

    Chan's new CBC "Olympic Portrait vid (one minute long):

    He talks about his inspirations: Browning, Stojko, and coach Osborne Colson.

    What is Patrick SAYING about his "wants" for this season? Has he come out and said "I WANT TO BE OLYMPIC CHAMPION?"
    This can be gross with some people, but he obviously has the track record and the goods.
    THAT SAID, there is a question of perception, presentation and strategy. Expectations are already obviously going to be very high. Not having a home country Olympics could temper some of this but still, he is a top pick to be standing on the podium, if not obviously the TOP.

    So ... anybody out there. WHAT HAS HE SAID? WHAT IS HIS ... POSITIONING STATEMENT (that we should hold him to...?)

    What's wrong with Patrick inspiring to be an Olympic medallist? Well Celine, find me an elite competitor of any sport who spends his/her many years training hard for FUN.

    You go girl!

    This is going to be an interesting year for us Chanfans. Get out your boxing gloves everyone as THEY are straying into the uber threads as well.

    Right! If any skater said he/she was there aiming for bronze, I'd be worried.

    Yes, we are, and we will support Patrick NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS in Sochi. As an avid Michelle Kwan fan, I've been through multiple Olympic disappointments. Life goes on, both for the skater and for their fans. It's not the end of the world if a skater doesn't win the OGM. There's only room for one champion every four years. I still wish Michelle had won an OGM, but the fact that she didn't doesn't minimize my enjoyment of her skating. I want Patrick to win by skating perfectly because that is what HE wants for himself. I want HIM to be satisfied with his second Olympic experience. I will definitely be cheering for him all the way!

    That's it. You said it for me skatingfan4ever. We wish our favourites all the best and will cheer them on whatever happens. We love them for who they are and what they bring to the ice rink. Go Patrick!

    Welcome "Home" Guru. We miss you dearly.
