    Not a world champion, but Candeloro had facial hair when he won his second Olympic medal.

    I don't think that would be a good look for Chan, though. :D

    Didn't Ben Agosto sport some facial hair sometimes?

    Also, Evan Lysacek had some stubble when he won Worlds and Olympics. :p

    Ahh haha... of course there was at Olympics! I was going down the world champion list that's why I couldn't recall.

    I seem to remember Brian Joubert sport a stubble now and then. Oh so MAN!! Hey maybe that's the trend here... beard at the Olympics. Personally I think the D'artagnan look would look very well with Daisuke as well, who has the personality to realize these sort of colourful characters.

    Ooooh, I think that would look awful! :lol: I'm just imagining Patrick with patchy and sparse manchild stubble. Just wrong.

    I'm.... closer to his age, and so I shall openly indulge in the delusion that if we met each other at a bar, I'd have a chance. :lol:

    :eek:
    Can someone photo-shop some hairs on him and see how it comes up? :p

    Bar? Didn’t he say he doesn’t drink as he is allergic to alcohol? Though it doesn’t mean he doesn’t go to the bar .. yes just fruit juice only for Patrick. :lol:
    Now it may be better for you to take up tennis as I think he plays tennis too? :D

    Yeah, ice tea at the club house. ;) It's on. I'd love for him to help me with my serve.

    Alright, that's it. I mean, I could go on and on but I don't want to put anyone off their lunches...don't know what the dirty thinking threshold is in these waters.

    ya I believe he has the 'asian flush' or the allergy that is typical within Asian and Aboriginal peoples..

    I agree with you - even though I'm old enough to be his mom .. he has grown into a handsome young man.. whenever I have met him he has been very polite and nice.. so can imagine he is a lovely boyfriend and I know if my daughter brought him home - I wouldn't be complaining.. :lol: I hope he can have a bit of a break now from competitions and enjoy 'life' especially with his girlfriend..:cool:

    Geez, maybe he should shave his head and skate to the King and I.

    Apparently confirmed. Buttle for the short and Wilson for the long. No news about hiring a new coach yet??

    That should be interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing Chan skate some programs in competition that weren't choreographed by Lori Nichol (though I think she's done good work for Chan myself).

    I agree, but I'm delighted Patrick is going to try something different. Maybe Buttle or Wilson can create a signature piece for Patrick, something personal and interesting.
