This time Patrick is on sabbatical.
    If he does I hope it's LaBoheme.

    I would love to see a clean La Boheme as well , but I doubt it. I thought he is practicing something new. I am so happy he keeps skating

    GREAT NEWS!!!!! He never has skated very well there, but maybe without the pressure of the coming season and just skating because he chooses to, he will be able to skate better there this time. No matter how he skates, it will be nice to see him do a competitive program again. I don't even care which one. ALL of Patrick's programs have a special place in my heart. And even when Patrick is not jumping well, he doesn't let the other aspects of the program go by the wayside. I've always said I love watching Patrick skate, jumps or no jumps.

    I posted here two days ago that Patrick met Roger Federer in Toronto. Well, at that same tennis tournament, he also met Milos Raonic. Like Federer, Raonic is quite tall. http://instagram.com/p/rfCpTrx19-/

    Thanks Patrick and David Wilson.
    Patrick is a skater, that I will be glad as long as he continues to skate and I will go watch him live whenever I get a chance. fan or not , medals or not, it is good skating...
    I did not watch Patrick's program as much as I do for my favorite skater. but every time, whenever, I watch, it took my breath away.
    Perhaps, it is too much of an emotional drain...
    The more I study figure skating, the more I study choreo, the more I appreciate Patrick.

    @yyyskate

    Great to hear you liked it. Was it your first time watching La Boheme? If you want to enjoy another choreographical gem by Patrick, take a look at this. This was almost perfect (he only switched 4T3T and 3F2T to 4T2T and 3F3T, couse of his weak landing on the first quad) But the choreo is brilliant, though this time it is from Lori Nichol. Watch the steps and choreo bevor the solo lutz in the second half of the program. This is the current canadian record for a free skate with 200.81 points.

    Another all time favourite of some of us is his 4CC program in 2009. I loved the Tango he did there.
    The program is essentially raw when you compare it with how he moves his body now but IMO its raw genius!

    @kuan, I respect Patrick a lot. His 2013 SP worlds practice completely blew me out of water (I was there ) and I witnessed even a mid-aged man can cry while watching Patrick skating. So when Brezina cried when watching Patrick's TEB four season, I can feel him. La Boheme, I have watched it before, my feeling is it is a vastly different program from Patrick's previous program. But again, I saw your link, I clicked it, and it blew me away... it is the emotions showed in that program... For some reason, I didnot watch Patrick's program very often, but once in a while, I watch it, usually, I am in awe. So I guess I am not a die-hard fan yet... it is kinda like, for example, his la Boheme, after I watched it once, I do not want to watch it again immediately, perhaps wait for some time, then I can watch, maybe, I do not want to experience too much emotional impact, it is kinda disturbing... so I avoid it. Whereas, Yuna, when I watch her, I can watch her for hours, hypnotized and forget the time...

    EDIT: a nice photo for you: https://31.media.tumblr.com/9d5b2128...csppo1_500.jpg

    A wonderful picture! Never saw it bevor! Do you have the users url for me?

    Yeah, I think I kind of get what you mean by too much emotional impact. When I saw Patrick live for the first time (at TEB), I was also emotionaly worn out after he finished his free skate. So I can feel with Brezina. But I don´t know if it was because of the program or because I was anxious about his jumps. I feared he would fall with every jump.

    that photo is from recent tumblr, and I also discovered your blog from tumblr, it is the first photo on Patrick Chan tag right now.
    I totally understand your feeling, because when I watched Yuna's les Mis (13worlds), I was also so scared and worried that she may fall with her every jump. totally exhausted after her program is finished, and even forget to stand for her until every body else stood up. I guess that is true fan's reaction. Whereas for Patrick, I was unprepared, and it is a practice session and he did a perfect clean SP, so totally blew away by his skating. If Patrick is going to compete again, I suggest you watch him again with a calm state of mind. You will find how wonderful his pure skating is.

    recently, I started to watch figure skating programs more closely from choreo, dance etc perspective. I viewed a few famous Patrick's programs. I found that Patrick's long program is like a feast, (whereas others' perhaps like a treat in that sense). There are so many substances in it, almost 2,3 times load of choreo(including skating skill showcase and transitions) of others' program. it is really a lot for me to fully digest even one of his programs. let alone the concept, construction, performance, acting part... A lot to learn from Patrick's program. both Lori and David Wilson created genius programs for him. A great resource/case to study their choreo...

    Thanks, that is indeed lovely. Can someone please translate what are they talking about, especially regarding the Olympic experience.
