    LOL another return announcement. He is mimicking his ex girlfriend Nastia Liukin with all the fake return announcements to keep his name in the news.

    Al Roker seemed more interested in his "relationship" with Vera Wang.

    Yipes, and he just shared the news with two or three million of his closest friends. Well, I hope he does return and do well, though I'll be rooting for Daisuke.

    As for resolving the financial issues with the USFSA that scuttled Evan's plans to return last year, I can't help but think that Hilton Hotels played a more active role in the negotiations this time around. Lysacek's tweet yesterday thanked Hilton HHonors (the naming sponsor of Skate America) for "hosting" him at this appearance in London.

    Maybe Paris Hilton put in a good word for him.

    This article says he has a quad but is it for the SP and LP? Can he do a combo with a 3T or 2T?

    Lysacek had never had a quad in SP. Also, he always used quad combo instead of single quad jump. Probably a combo was easier for him than a single quad.

    Abbott does Skate America too?! This is going to be interesting!

    I think he planned just a quad - not quad combo - at 2010 nationals in the FS. It was a major disaster.

    He's done 4T-3T before. He attempted it regularly in both the SP and the LP during 07-08 season. I think his various injuries and his coaching staff realized that GOE scaling was the same for triple jumps led him to axing the quad.

    True quads having no value in the previous version of COP and his injury may have lead to the all triple programs which almost everyone adopted with Lysacek being the most successful. SP was 3/3 combo 3A , triple jumps and FS was 3/5 format with 3A in the first half and starting the second half of the FS. With the GOE being so generous on triple jumps the second half of programs with 5 triples made doing quads the dumbest thing in skating. We might see with Lysaceks programs how quads could be devalued by structuring programs to maximize other things and if he wins everyone will stop doing quads again.
