That was beautiful. But is it just me or the camera was shaky?
4everchan, remember my wish for you to see at least one flawless program from Patrick, preferably the LP?
I knew my wish would come true. They usually do. That's why I'm careful what I wish for and I look out for Patrick's wish.
Thank you so much, 4everchan! I quoted and linked to your report on my blog post. I definitely need to go see Patrick live very soon!
For me as a long-distance fan, it's still nice to be able to notice on video the differences in his LP between this one and previous ones. I even noticed when he was behind and had to cut some movements to catch up with the music. But he did it all with such calm and presence of mind that when I pointed it out to others, they couldn't tell. By the time I went to bed last night, I was enjoying his victory like this: I wouldn't be surprised if he was too excited to sleep, ha.
Patrick's name means "noble", and he has proven that despite the struggles, he is a noble athlete and artist through and through. Oh yeah, and he belongs to a "great group" of Canadian skaters! :agree:
Thanks Vivley your blog is very well filled with tons of tweets, interviews and information. You are also inspiring!!!! So much work. What I prefer though, is the artwork I hope Patrick notices it in the ocean of tweets he will receive.
I wish you will get to see him live, and I truly recommend to see a LP if only one program. Journey is just amazingly built. Now I really want to go back in time and see the Chopin. I think exhibition programs are lighter and more fun... which is perhaps not where ART chines at its utmost.
I have no idea where you are located but next year, there will be most likely some chiddy in Regina (Skate Canada) and Vancouver ( Nationals)... Vancouver is a gorgeous city to visit if you can go.... I really hope you get to see him compete.
Awwwww. Am I bad to say Patrick is the super cute one in this picture?
the fan cam is taken just a few rows of seats higher than where i was.. i was ice center but a bit lower... i think i even recognize the hair of the ladies behind hehe.. you can hear me cheer in there LOL...
so it gives you a sense of how patrick move yet, this is the opening...he is setting up for jumps here... What is truly mesmerizing is when he skates... the steps... the choreography....I am still elated... cannot sleep....
Ha, my first thought when I saw that pic was that Patrick looked like a HK movie star, seriously.
FYI, the other thing I'm seeing mentioned on Twitter (now that Nathan and Karen are the US champs), is people calling Patrick, Nathan, and Karen the three Chen/Chan siblings (陳家三兄妹). Lol, I wonder if Patrick knows that?
thanks Vivley... i just put a photo i took of patrick on the podium but it's too small... in it we can see how emotional he is... oh well... i will keep it for a little while... i am so used to the green background though
One who steals and melts hearts.
When I logged in, for a moment I didn't recognize you, because I was used to the green!
Speaking of which, here's another photo of Patrick at practice a couple of days ago, laughing while sitting by kids.
In contrast, the kids look so serious!
I keep findings things so I need to update a bunch of blog posts today!
