    Go Evan! Although D&W have had an impressive season, and I'd be fine with their winning too.

    I had a hard time choosing, but I ended up going with Meryl and Charlie. They're the only reason I bother to watch ice dance, and they rocked this year. :D

    I think it should be Evan but D/W would be fine. Mirai? Eh. I don't forget the beginning of her season as easily as some people I guess.

    I'm voting for Navarro & Bommentre! Despite financial hardships and lack of political support, they stuck in and were awesome. Great job, N&B!

    Well, Evan won last year. ;)

    I voted for Evan the past 2 years, so it's time to spread my vote around. ;) And D/W were the most consistent top U.S. skaters this season - winning both of their GPs and the GPF, plus Nats, and they won silver at both Olys and Worlds. They also had the most demanding season, b/c they started with Nebelhorn (and won that, too :)).

    I picked D/W, but I was really close to voting for Ryan. His nationals free skate was awesome, and I admired his determination to skate at Worlds with his foot injury. Plus he just seems like a great guy. :)

    I went back and forth between Adam Rippon and Ryan Bradley. I finally, finally, finally, voted for Ryan Bradley. Maybe we could give him the boost to skate another season or two.

    I would have liked to vote for more than one but I ended up voting for Evora/Ladwig. It was so thrilling to see them break through and skate their best. :cheer:

    Anyone want to make bets on Evan & D/W being "Co-Winners" in 2010? ;)

    I think Evan will win if for no other reason than he's on DWTS while the voting's going on.

    That's a good point. Kind of like Shawn Johnson winning the Sullivan Award last year while she was on DWTS.

    I voted for Evan. (Shocking, I know.) Normally I'd give my vote to someone who didn't win last year, but I figured that bringing home the first men's Olympic gold since Brian Boitano deserves a repeat award.

    The title of that at first had me thinking that he had won some other award ... "Return Skater of the Year". :confused: And trying to remember whether he had ever left skating, to be able to make a return. I blame it on my hazy memory of skating in the last Olympic cycle. :shuffle:
