    It is easier to have nicely finished movements when skating to elegies and dirges, and other slow music, which is what so many of the other skaters seem to be using. Question of U is more comparable to the sort of music the other guys are using. This droning stuff is one reason that singles skating has become more boring to me to watch. The ladies with endless tinkly piano numbers, the men with dark, heavy pieces. There are of course brighter spots, but the requirement for deep edges to get credit in steps leads to these sorts of music choice, I think.
    Thank you Doris. I completely agree.

    Not to mention that his Nationals Short program is up to a respectable 90,000 views. I agree about his potential. However, after last night I really hope he gets to go Worlds. The long program is the best choice of music(I believe) and I hope that he gets another chance before next season.

    Apologies if this was posted already, but I didn't see it in the past few days of posts. Jason's younger brother Dylan wrote a lovely article about growing up with him and his recent success.

    Well Jason Brown gets the gold medal in spins! He beats the next guy by 1.2 points! He also is virtually tied with Daisuke for highest non-jump elements (technically Daisuke is first, but only by .04).


    Per my protocal breakdown: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...l=1#post854856

    I used to do the "jump sheets" for TV and ISU (now called the program sheets), so I know the tech panel/judges are aware of what the skater "intends" to do in the program, so if it looks like a set up for a particular jump not completed, perhaps that's the way the tech panel is judging it.

    Yes, it was pretty obvious that Jason meant to do something there....had he just tripped or something then done the element...he probably wouldn't have been penalized.

    I have to say that Jason's perpetual smile and positive, upbeat attitude have been so nice through these Olympics. I am glad he is going to stick around, as he develops I'm sure we will see some great things from him.

    Thx for posting the link in this thread, apgold.
    (LOL, I had posted it earlier in this thread, but then moved it to Jason's Fan Fest thread, where I hoped it would be less likely to get overlooked.)

    Anyway, for those who haven't read it, Dylan's tribute is lovely indeed. And it includes some good details from the "inside" perspective of being Jason's brother.

    I thought of Jason when I went on my long run (which I survived despite being ill the last few days). It started snowing toward the second half and my glasses were getting fogged up so I had to take them off. I'm nearsighted like Jason is, but I can see OK without the glasses (things are kind of blurry).

    But running seems sort of straight forward, I still can't imagine how you skate and jump without them. :P

    (Babyskate, I got more dark chocolate peanut butter cups. They were on sale too! WIN).

    Does anyone have a link to his interview from MSNBC this morning?

    NBC seems to like him. He was on late night last night, Today this morning ( with Jeremy) and MSNBC after that.

    With all of this media attention will Jason get any corporate sponsorships? I hope he gets one or two good ones to help support his training. He deserves it. Kori has been sponsored by a natural snack company.

    Jason Brown 'heartbroken' over Evgeni Plushenko's injury


    I like this part:

    Plushenko became a huge fan of Brown after being shown an online video of the youngster performing at the U.S. Championships in Boston last month. He wasn't alone, either. Brown's "Riverdance" performance in the long program generated more than 3.9 million views online.

    "It is a really cool relationship," Brown said. "I respect him so much and to know that he respects me and what I do is huge as well.

    "[Plushenko] has been so nice to me and so supportive over the past week. When we had team practice he came up to me and said, 'I am such a huge fan of yours.' I was like, 'What? No, no, no, no, like I am such a huge fan of yours.' And I was like, 'You're amazing' and he's like, 'No, you're amazing' – and you know like right off the bat I was so relaxed.

    "He is such an incredible person and that meant so much to me and that support instantly made me feel calm from the second I stepped on the ice."
