I often find myself saying "HUH????" after some of Dick's comments, i.e. the "scrammbled egg" analogy last night describing Sasha's season.
He made a WAY off the wall remark tonight (off the wall to most of the world anyway, I'm assuming) comparing Johnny to a Greyhound.
I'm betting the cross section of the population that are both skating fans AND Greyhound owners is small. And of those Greyhound owners, the % of them that have a large fenced in yard where their Greyhounds can run full out is even smaller.
As a Greyound owner with a very large fenced in yard, I think, for once, I know exactly what Dick was talking about. When you watch a Greyhound run totally free across a large area, it's truly a wonder. You just say to yourself..."THAT is what God built them for - to run fast and sure footed and be happy doing it."
Of course I have no idea if that's what Dick really meant, but watching Johnny skate tonight, I got those chills and said to myself ..."THAT is what God built this guy to do." I haven't gotten those chills every time I've watched him. But his LP last year was the first time, and this time was definitely another. His skate wasn't 100% perfect tonight - a couple minor bobbles...burt MAN he sure drew me in.
I'm also glad to see Tim's improvements in presentation - I wish Tim had skated his LP like his SP. I thought Even deserved his SP placement. While I like him, I sort of thought Matt Savoie did better in the LP and maybe should have been third. Anyone else??
