It was lovely. Patrick has beautiful skating skills and he is free only in his gala skates to show us he is trying and succeeding at being an artist. People just don't agree with the judging rules for jumps and his reign as judges favorite despite several mistakes in some programs. Judges favorite. I amazed at how man men MM listed who rotated and landed their quad and more. There are wonderful male skaters all over the world. Even us Chan fans get tired of overscoring. Performance at least 30 points better than Dai? I don't think so. Maybe that does not happen every comp. but still, people get so angry at the unfair judging and the judging rules, they fail to see Pat can skate beautifully outside the CoP parameters he uses to win. I will watch his gala skate again if available. Good stuff.
