    Seriously mate, lighten up. Get an update for your sense of humour chip; it's clearly crashed.

    It's OK, Bluebonnett. You can start a Patrick Chan's Blessing thread. You see, the American male skater who trains with and befriends him tends to become US Champion against all odds - Bradley and Aaron. Joshua Farris, who admires Patrick and credits his help, has had great success including US and Worlds Junior titles. (Verner, OTOH, has crashed and burned since he criticized Patrick's win.)

    Just flip the humour chip and play along.

    How true that is!
    I dont think anyone expected Bradley to become US Champion. I remember when Patrick and Ryan both tried to grow a moustache ( for Movember?) and Ryan joking that Patrick had only a few scraggly hairs!
    Now he is friends with Max the only skater whom he allowed to skate on the ice with him in Colorado and yes Max became the US champion.
    Havent heard anything about Farris and Chan.

    Its a hard time for us Chan fans but its also a hard time for a lot of men's fans with injuries etc ( other than Denis Ten fans)

    Bluebonnet, I am sorry I offended. I am a Chan fan, and the way he gets castigated, I sometimes feel his haters DO perceive him as the skating equivalent of He Who Must Not Be Named.

    The good thing about curses, is that, like rules, they are made to be broken. As a Canadian, I've lived through the "Canadian Olympic Flagbearer Curse" (broken), the "No Olympic Gold for Canada on Canadian Soil Curse" (broken, and how!), and hope to see the "Canadian Men's Olympic Curse" broken next year.

    But not expecting it, oh no. Patrick's winning Worlds this year has relieved me of all anxiety. He Cannot Win Olympic Men's Gold Now. Whereas, if he had not won Worlds this year, I would have no fingernails left by next February, the anticipation would be killing me so bad.

    LRK, I believe in the Bronze Curse too! Although you're right, it doesn't explain everything.

    Anyway, we all should know by now that the real You Know Who is Michelle Kwan. I guess that means Ashley Wagner is Harry Potter.

    The bronze medal curse didnt apply to V&M from bronze in 2009 they won Olys and worlds in 2010. It did apply to the Shibs and P&B. So maybe some skaters are exempt

    Well, that is true!

    Patrick Chan is admired by so many fellow skaters. They are trying to imitate Patrick. How many skaters now are having 3F-1Lo-3S or 3Lz-1Lo-3S?! That was a brilliant creation of Lori Nichol for Chan.

    If there is any curse, I would say that there is a curse for the ill-wishers in general, believe me or not. I'm not going to spend my time on looking for curses on any skaters. I wish them all well including Takahashi. Takahashi and Hanyu admire Patrick Chan and look up to him on skating. Chan admire Takahashi and Hanyu as well. So glad to see them get along well!

    I guess if Patrick confirms moving to Detroit Club, we can see some skaters there medal? I don't mind! I have a few whom I like in Detroit. They can all medal together with Patrick!......

    If Patrick moves to Detroit, will he pick Skate America as his second GP, given that Skate America is there?

    Potentially, the best Skate America in years!
    (no curse there )

    He may because he doesn't like travelling but I think it's usually too close to Skate Canada. He will either do COR or Eric Bompard.

    Skate America is no big deal for someone who owns the Worlds podium, occupies the penthouse, and rents out the lower levels. The rascal also owns the US podium and puts his buddy of the year on top.
