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.
