If Plush said a few things afterwards to the press - who can blame him. He was so close to being "like Dick Button" and to finish second in such a close decision- which he felt he won - had to be more disappointing than most of us could ever realize.
I sure hope he is at Sochi - healthy and prepared to give his best.
What more could any skating fan hope for than to see a legend at his last event putting it all on the line. And if that is not dramatic enough we get to see this happen on his home ice.
This will be so good even NBC should be able to make something special out of it.
Of course he would get SO with a fall, it was a bonus to see him falling on a 2A
Japan fans is not the measure though when it comes to Plush
You would think British audience not knowledgeable, but they gave him SO too, which was surprise to me. It was like they were waiting only for Plushenko to skate. Do you think British wouldn’t give him SO with one fall, I doubt. Two British ladies, who were seating beside us, told me, they brought Russian flag just for Plushenko.
Just remembered, after Torino he was very popular in UK, Ari, his agent has organized some shows in UK. But Plush has canceled because he choose the Tv show, where he worked like a presenter of the show. And Victoria Beckham would have paid him 1,000 pounds per hour, if Plushy teaches to skate her boys..
Look at this!

one of the british ladies on small medall ceremony:
- Would you marry me?
Plushy:- What your name? Well.... "I am married... It's good that my wife is not here. ...THX! )))))))))

And he had never attacked Evan personally, and he didn't say the quad is everything, he said few points of the difficult jump. Evan said about Plushy he is a great guy even after Vancouver, and he also said in this spring, that Plushy is the best skater in history. Maybe he was polite, but i don't think, that he would say, if he doesn't think it, in this situation.
Plushy and Evan in October of 2010.
