    I am so happy for Emanuel and Ben. I flet so bad for Jeff. At least he's on the podim and we'll see him at 4CCs. Chris Mabee actually bent his wrist back rather funny. Good for him that he kept it together after that. I so hope Emanuel can perform this well at Worlds. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

    That was a great competition. Canada has such depth in men's right now. Sandhu was amazing! That was probably his best performance yet. I hope he can do something very similar to that at worlds!

    I'm also disappointed for Jeff though.

    Sandhu was incredible. I have my fingers crossed and all my toes that he can skate like that at worlds. If he does he'll win a medal, no doubt.

    I was impressed with Ben Ferreira. He doesn't have the same quality of in-betweens as Buttle or Sandhu but he skated his heart out and I was rooting for him. Actually, if he can skate like that at worlds he could medal as well.

    I felt really bad for Buttle. He's one of my favs, but I was actually surprised he managed to end up on the podium. Andreev clearly had a better skate, but I guess his placements in qualifying and the short program were enough to keep him in the bronze medal position. I hope he goes to four continents and has a great skate to end his season.

    I can see why everyone talks about Shawn Sawyer - nobody has extension like that except Sasha Cohen. I've never seen anyone do a spin like the splits spin he did. I really hope he suceeds in getting his jumps back together.
