The result was just 0.63 points off the mark of Canada's Patrick Chan which allowed him to win this year's ISU Grand Prix final.

Oh, can't wait for the comments that will come out of that one... :scream: Remember people, all Nationals are inflated.

Really great accomplishment considering many of the titles were won during the era of Yagudin, Urmanov, and Abt. :respec: Who else has won as many National titles in a relatively deep field? Kwan has 9 also.

Apparently those biased Canadian judges are very influential everywhere :lol:

Why does Plushenko always look like he is groping himself

It's amazing what he has done, it just shows you can still pull off quads and 3A's well into your late 20s and after countless surgeries. Plushy is awesome, it's so nice to have a skater who loves this sport so much.

Take that to the haters :D

The Russian Federation always preferred Plushenko to Yagudin.

The absolute confidence that he exudes while skating is incredible. You can just feel that he KNOWS he can pull off incredible skating. I love Evan, so please don't take offense, but the fact that EP literally did NOT skate competitively for four years and still did so well at the last olympics, spoke volumes to me. Wow! I'll be glued to the tv if he's in the competitive mix again. I've missed him.

EP is one of my favorite male skaters. I love the artistry of Weir, but also love the absolute total confidence of EP's skating. Quad, triple, double combos are extremely underrated. He's an unreal athlete and such a charismatic skater on the ice...PS: I liked Dick Button as a commentator. Why isn't he on tv anymore? (It seems like I only hear him at the Olympics or something...??)

Three thoughts: (1) Gee, I really needed to hear this music one more time! :rolleyes: (2) Ever try holding a landing edge? (3) If the tech specialist gave Plushy credit for the two jumps he did after landing the 3Lz, doing a LFO 3-turn, then putting the right foot down, I am going to personally go to Russia and strangle him/her.

Come on, like him or not, but to skate like that after so long without competing is awesome.
