I'll be at World's 2013 and hope Evan's there too. I saw him skate a poor SP in 2006 Calgary and come back so strong in the LP. Then I saw him in 2009 LA and was so happy with his win. Looking forward to a possible repeat of at least a great showing! Go Evan :cheer2:

My only disappointment is his choice of Samson and Delilah for the long program. It is not that I don't think it is excellent music, but there is so much good music going unused and yet year after year, decade after decade----so many use the tired old war horses. Gee, even Fleming used it for her Olympic program, back in ancient times lol.

YEs, that's one of the things that has always boggledme about Evan. Every year he's be quoted saying how he wanted to be different, but every piece of music he's ever skated to is same-old-same-old. But I wonder how much Lori Nichol has to do with that.

Evan's definition of not that often used and other people's definition is different. I think he said that he liked Samson and Delilah because it was strong and repetitive, and not many skaters had used it before.

:lol:

From what I gather, Lori often gets blamed for picking "warhorses", but in her interviews about Carolina Kostner, she said how relieved she is that she gets to use relatively unknown pieces for her. So, I think it probably is usually the skaters are uncomfortable with going out of the box... or else Lori realizes that they aren't capable of handling unknown pieces.

WOW, that is impressive... Congratulations to Evan! Stockholm is great, but I just worry about Minsk, will he have to fly with Russian planes, LOL?

Last photo in the gallery. Lysacek's new outfit. Brace yourselves, folks: there's gray in it. . . . and white. (along with the black.)

Yes, but it's hideous. GO BACK TO BLACK, EVAN!

I agree - that combination of colours really doesn't do anything for him.

I remember when Kwan made a huge deal out of doing something different for her FS in the 2001-2 season: she was going to play a character, and it wasn't even necessarily a likeable character. Then she skated to "Scheherezade."

Eventually he should go to school to learn how to manage all that money he has made.. Has anyone checked out his net worth? WOW! He doesn't want to end up like Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in tennis who relatively recently disclosed that she is nearly broke after making millions and millions of dollars all because she didn't know how to manage her money.. I too don't understand why he is coming back. He is not shooting for gold, at most he can hope for is silver..He beat Dai at the last olympics but Chan and his judging assistants have taken it to the next level.

:D :D :D :D...

He must have borrowed that "jumpsuit" from the estate of the late Jack LaLanne... :D

Oh, wait - Evan has modified it by adding long sleeves and a sporty v-neck!

It will certainly be interesting if he really does come back. Johnny, too...

I am curious what FSUers think about another skating suit. He introduced two new ones last weekend, the gray with the v-neck and this:

Is it too plain to wear in competition?

Bear in mind that as reigning Olympic gold medalist, if Evan has any decent showing next year, he could stand to get a fair amount of endorsement money leading into the Winter Olympics. U.S. Sponsors will want recognizable American athletes and, while Shaun White, Gretchen Bleiler, and Lindsey Vonn will probably be the biggest names in terms of marketing (I'm assuming Apollo Ohno does not compete), there always is some demand for figure skaters, since it is the Olympics' biggest ratings draw in the U.S. Evan will probably be the most recognizable name, even if Davis & White were to beat V/M next year and come to the Olympics as reigning world champions.
