    I don't believe these will be his last hurrahs.
    He did say he hasn't think about retiring after Sochi when posed this question recently. So there is a possibility that he may still continue.

    Hmm.. I have this weird thought, feel free to tell me that I am mad. What if Chiddy continues after Sochi in ice dance? Does it sound impossible? How long does it take to train a 'partnership'?

    Ice dance... well, he did love Blades of Glory and wished for a male partner on Strombo! Taka is small enough - or Dennis. Or it could go the other way... how about Joubert as a partner? Patrick has also said several times he wanted to be 8 times Can. Champ, and this year only will only make seven. So I keep hoping he won't retire all that soon. I shouldn't be surprised if he takes some time off next year though.

    Now, Patrick is training at detroit figure skating club, and is surrounded with great ice dancers. I found him very comfortable among ice dancers and already made some friends. Plus, he seems enjoy watching ice dance competition.

    This will be a great men's event. Hopefully no provocative Canadian journalists and some off-ice comment controversy. (Recalling Quebec Grand Prix Final and his comments and how they were treated).

    Hope the skating does the talking this event.

    There's an active thread in The Edge right now titled "Can Patrick Chan Cope with the Pressure of Olympic Favoritism?" Despite my vow that I would not enter The Edge or the competition threads once the season started, I couldn't resist. Surprisingly, it hasn't turned into a bashing thread as of yet. (The article cited to start it was the one with Orser's advice, which SGrand posted above). One person asserts that Patrick has a 5-6 fall advantage from the judges and another person mentions that he doesn't have a real coach. Overall, the posts are very reasonable. So, check it out and add your thoughts if you want.

    I also wanted to express my best wishes here for Patrick to do well at Skate Canada!

    It's a mantra from PTF and Jammers. Even without reading, one knows who posted that.

    I trust you have arrived in Saint John, Coriana. Emdee, are you leaving today? Anyway ladies, have a great time cheering Patrick and the other skaters.

    Corina said she is not bringing her laptop along so may have to rely on your iphone or ipad for some itsy bitsy news.
    Yes, the brown shirt. It too reminds me of the one he wore for his Ex.
    Enjoy! Have a good flight.

    Yes, exactly. I made one more post on that thread this morning and now I'm done with it. My avoidance of The Edge and the competition threads begins NOW! The Fan Fests will be my home all season because they're always so positive. I'm all for positivity!
