vigiliae, thank you so much for the fabulous photos.

I hope uploads of clips from the broadcast will appear soon.

ETA:
totoro8673, thanks for the link but would it be blocked for countries outside Korea as I got a 'prohibited' sign with some Korean words that I don't know of the meaning?

It's too bad you can't see this video clip because of block.
Instead, HQ Fancams will be uploaded to Youtube from tomorrow.

vigiliae, thank you for your report!


Didn't check fancams or broadcast yet so I'm not sure you all watched it, but Patrick was quite funny at Saturday's finale. While male skaters did a kicking move he suddenly lost his edge and slipped out of nowhere. He looked so embarrassed and kept saying something to Joubert, then Joannie, and everyone near him until the end of the finale, covering his face and scratching his head and even repeating the kicking.(too late boy, it's too late!) Other skaters were kind of :rofl:, like Yagudin laughing at him and Lambiel patting his butt.http://www.flickr.com/photos/jaysimage/sets/72157631245017988/

You mean like this?

Patrick is explaining to Yuna what happened to him, and it seems that busy Yuna doesn't understand what he's saying :rofl:

EYS, EXACTLY! :rofl:

Patrick's face right after the fall was a kind of "WTF?" and it was priceless. Never saw him showing such confused look since a fall from EX encore at 2009 4CC. I know I am a bad fan but I couldn't stop laughing. :lol:

Yes, VarBar, I agree that Til Kingdom Come is not easy to skate to though I personally do like that song. Coldplay is British.:D

Well, tastes seem to differ even among the supporters of the same skater. Some Chan fans love Mannish Boy (I do, never found his flirting with the audience tacky), others are not impressed and it's okay.

Should we worry, PCFan? I hope I'm not wrong about the name of our worrywart here.;)

vigiliae, does this picture have anything to do with Patrick's embarrassing moment in the ATSS Finale? I would say yes it does.:lol:

Yes, it was his meaningless effort to make up the missed kick, which happened between the finale and the final bow. This series of photos might explain the situation better; the first pic is also shown at the youtube vid naan linked.

Now I feel I'm becoming a hater. :P But believe me, it was actually quite cute and somewhat Patrick-like moment :)

We fans are used to the Patrick like moments and enjoy them with him.

This makes him endearing and human and not a COP machine as some haterz allege!

He is very cute with the sailor costume, I think he is a youngest one of whole group skaters, I really enjoy the show. Thanks for the people to upload the links.

Haterz will always find reasons to hate. Personally, I will enjoy all skaters' skating as they are all individuals with their own styles to offer. Some may appeal to certain fans more some less since appeal is based on emotions. Don't ask me why I prefer men with more hair not less, or ladies with bigger bosoms not small.:P

So, has Chan announced his new training location? Assuming..... since he and Krall parted ways, there is no reason for him to continue training in Colorado. Is he moving to NYC area, where Kathy Johnson spends most of her time? Or, will he be splitting his time, training in Canada with a technical coach, and then work with Johnson where ever she is working (IIRC, she also works with many of the skaters in Detroit/Canton area).

I believe you and yes, it wouldn't be Patrick if he didn't have moments like that every now and then but I surely hope he will find a way to avoid them in competition.;) Yuna was stunning in Tango de Roxanne.

B.Cooper, I remember Sasha Cohen tweeted some time ago that she was practicing with Chan. Do we know where Sasha usually works? It's quite frustrating that probably a lot of people know where Patrick has been training these past few months and with whom and what programs he'll be skating this upcoming season and that they all seem to be able to keep a secret.:P

Patrick the 'open book' is surrounded by discreet friends. :) Tu Ly tweeted about Patrick's 'soaring' program but that's like helping the police in the identification process by telling them the thief has dark brown hair and brown eyes. :lol:
Didn't Patrick mention that he will continue to train in Colorado despite Christy not being his technical coach? Oh well, we have waited a while for the news so what's another month or two.

I remember him quoted as spending time in Toronto and Colorado. I really hope he continues training at high altitude as it probably benefits him as far as total fitness goes and promotes endurance for his amazing long programs.
