    Favorite Male Skater

    My favorite male skater is not on this list. Brian Boitano is my all time favorite male skater.

    This one was hard, b/c I'm a big fan of 3 of the 4, lol

    I chose Jeff Buttle. His Phillip Glass programme this year has the most amazing original choreography I have ever seen. He could just stop jumping today, skate only choreography and spin, and I wouldn't complain

    <--------------------------------------That guy is still on of my favourites, however. Very musical, very intelligent with his choreography (it actually has something to do with the music he's skating to....gasp!!), and he's Swiss, so you know the spins are incredible (BTW, if you edit the post and want to be totally correct about it, his first name is Stéphane....hold the Alt key and hit 0233 on the number pad to get the accent mark)

    Joubert's good too. His style is really uninspired, but he just looks so boy-next-door, you just want him to do well

    Joe, you really seem to be a fan of Stephane! Any specific reason why? I go for Jeff Buttle. Love his innovative choreography this year.

    I chose Jeff Buttle as my favourite

    BUT

    Johnny Weir is the next best thing!!

    I am not a big fan of any European male skaters right now.
    Kinda blah for me since Yags left.

    I'm all about Jhonny Weir.

    Men's skating is my favorite practice, mostly because I can relate to it ( being a man myself), yet I still have some problems with it. It seems that a lot of men try to grab too much attention, and put less effort into their skating. Weir is completely unlike this, he skates completely for himself ( as said in an interveiw), and I guess I admire myself. He doesn't try to show off his talent, he just let's it flow.

    Add that to the fact that he's from my home state (De I actually think he looks familiar), and his moves are effortless.

    I guess the success of his uniqueness makes me want to improve and skate harder, and it makes me less afraid to be myself on the ice (not that I was before...much).
