    Well I don't know about pangtongfan's past record or future predictions #1-6, but I do agree that Evan Lysacek's competitive career is over, and we won't be seeing him at any major international eligible competitions in the future.

    1. I predicted before the 2010 Olympics Evan would win gold, despite not being a fan of his. Most people said I was crazy, as despite being reigning World Champion he wasnt seen as favorite. I was right.
    But you weren't on this forum before the 2010 Olympics. Your join date is June 2010.

    Of course! I'm pretty much the Oprah of big, gold stars.

    But you have to earn it though, by making rare, not-so-obvious predictions that you 'feel strongly enough to declare'... you know, like Yu Na Kim winning a second OGM or Miki Ando not making the Japanese team.

    Yep just like Sasha Cohen Evan gets to go to nationals. I think it is a dumb rule but the dream lives on for Evan or does it???

    Because of the OLY gold Evan can show up and skate at U. S. Nationals without any preceding competitions. However, he does need to compete at some international event to gain the minimum TES scores for the short program and free skate in order to compete at 4CC or the Olympics. I don't remember the exact cut off date for meeting the minimum TES but it is around January 27 so there are some options like Ice Challenge Graz and Golden Spin Zagreb.

    I guess I just don't trust Lysacek to wait out the period that the doctors specify, or to ease back into things. He never has before. It will not surprise me in the least when he withdraws from Nationals with another or a flare-up of the same injury.
    Frank needs to lock him in a room until the period has passed and be sure it is small enough he can't do skating moves in it. lol Seriously, you would think he would have leaned by now.

    I have been a member of this forum since 2007. I deleted my old profile as it was of a by then retired skater.

    I see personal attacks still the only way to try and make your points when it comes to those superior to you. Some things will never change.

    Your post was self-aggrandizing, pretentious, and, frankly, pretty douchy. You might as well have said "Welcome to the forum... in case you don't know who I am, let me go on a tirade of how much awesomer I am than everyone else."

    The funny thing is, you think people actually care about your predictions, as if they somehow legitimize you. Whatever helps ya sleep at night, bud.

    why would you change your username from a retired skater to one that was obviously on the way out as well? Sure P/T continued but aren't they retired now? Time to change again! LOL!!

    I am truly sorry Evan is injured. That being said I am not sure why so many of are not surprsied. I mean no one wants to get hurt. And it might be "expected" because he is coming back not only from other injuries but lack of competition and unlike Y una he was or has not been skating at that competitive level as long or as much as her. Not to mention, Evan's win in 2010 while perhaps granted (though arguments can be made Plushy culd have won and when it is barely ap oint difference that is made out by the scores) was not exactly unanimous with Takahashi, Chan, Fernandez, Hanyu, Oda or the third Japanese man not o mention Amodio, Joubert, the Czech boys, Plushy, Max Aaron and Reynold there is no guarantee he'll even make top ten and that assumes he makes the American team. THis is a bit mean but how I feel. Evan I am sure you are a nice person and congrats on 2010 OGM but you had your chance, you really got lucky and you know so don't push it. Stop trying to steal the limelight. Let it go = you probably got more than you deserved already. Go off with Johnny Weir into the sunset

At the previous years Worlds they were 4th with a mini meltdown, behind a team who is now split up. They are very much in contention for atleast the bronze in Sochi still. Hopefully they will stick it to their haters and win a medal in Sochi to go out, after being robbed of a medal in Turin, and a gold in Vancouver by poor judging.
    I literally thought they had retired! It wasn't to be insulting.
