Caydee and John are much more consistent on SBS jumps than any other Us team. And though it pains me, that means hey probably deserve an Olympic berth especially with the team completion.
I like Weir's new image and attitude.
I have to admit that Virtue and Moir were a delight to watch this weekend.
Oh yeah, talked to Max Aaron at a skating show this summer and he has a good smile and nice twinkly eyes.
Jeremy's Spy program was really fun. He ought to do more of that rather than tortue killmenow programs.
Adam's Carmen is fierce-o-mite.
Chan's jumps have really got better this season, and he's almost always well-dressed.
CanadianSkaterGuy is a nice guy and he is fair with Plushy and never mailcious with him.

Gracie Gold is pretty, has a cute smile, and an adorable accent. She makes me smile every time I hear her talk. I respect her ambition.
Miki Ando's comeback at Nebelhorn Trophy this season was really gutsy and I thought she did a very admirable job so shortly after her pregnancy.
I really do want Mirai Nagasu to regroup, refocus, and put all of the pieces of the puzzle back together again. I've always liked her personality and spinning ability.
I felt deep, sincere empathy for Caroline Zhang at Skate America this season and I really want her to leave the sport with much better performances and spirits than that.
Ross Miner is a cute guy with a cute smile who I hope is able to rediscover his consistency.
I always respected Evan Lysacek's long body lines and the way he attacked his programs when he was competing. He was consistent during his time at the top and was mentally tough.
I like how no skater no matter how good or acclaimed could ever take Rachael Flatt lightly. Regardless of any god given talent, she has/had the heart of a champion.
The programs Oda has this year really fit to his personality and thus are very enjoyable.

Akiko Suzuki's perseverance is impressive and her skating wonderful.
I like the way how Daisuke Takahashi comes across as a person.

Good thread idea and a great way to stretch the mind and gain an eensy bit of perspective. Thanks, tulosai.
When skating a flawless program, Patrick Chan really can look like an artist on ice!
V/T deliver astonishing clean elements, and they do it consistently.
The Shibs seem like genuinely nice people, and by all accounts they work very hard. Their improvement so far this year is amazing. I'm interested in seeing how they can reinvent (or redirect the focus of) ice dance over the next four years while dealing with the limitations that come with being a team of siblings.
Hanyu is an obvious talent, and I hope I will begin to appreciate his skating as he matures, as I did with Plushenko.
Agree, Sasha opened the doors on some of the flexibility stuff. Her mark on the sport right now is better than any medal she won or tried to win.
