Honestly? I'd completely forgotten about him :P
posted in error. delete . sorry
Hurry and get here December 10th. Are there any here of the mind he will register for that event knowing he doesn't plan to show up for it?
And really - is he really so arrogant as to presume he can come back after four years away and just waltz onto the Olympic team, ahead of younger, better skaters who have all been doing the hard yards around the international scene? Even Plushenko was not so presumptuous as that!
And IcyEdges, don't flatter yourself by imagining that I follow you around GS.
Lysacek did not 'assume' that he could wait four years and waltz back on to the Olympic team. That is why he started training full time several years ago. That is why Lysacek had two competition programs ready for last season (Poeta & S&D). Unfortunately the groin injury & the surgery to repair the torn abdominal muscle kept him from competing.
When I spoke to Evan in July, he stated that he was pain free and was looking forward to competing again. Unfortunately, in late August, Evan suffered a slight abdominal tear and a torn hip labrum. Both injuries are painful injuries that required downtime from training. Evan has undergone physical therapy and has resumed training. However, time is the enemy... It is doubtful that Lysacek will be healed enough in time to compete. If Lysacek does not compete, it will not be from lack of desire and effort.
Concerning internet, we are all nobodies commenting on a forum and not all people know the inside situation of a skater, thats why there is speculation, most of us are simple fs fans. The board is for discussing.
I am speculating but I think we would have seen more of Evan had he not been so injured. I feel like we are waiting fro the withdrawl. But EVan is a competitor and you never know but he is OGM champion something Patrick or Dai will never be or most likely won't be.
Karne, keep assuming you know everything. And you following me around would hardly be flattery, you shouldn't talk yourself up like that. Besides, that's hardly what I was referring to with my previous comment anyway.
Also, I wouldnt call the younger skaters "More talented". And in reference to calling Evan Presumptuous, just NO. Don't even go there.
Re: Plushy. Plushy didn't have to be "presumptuous" he already knows he has a free pass to Sochi. Are you kidding me?!
