    Do people really like this guy? I am Canadian and I have always found him insufferable and his "gift" to figure skating, crass and wimpy machismo without artistic merit. He was THE main reasons that I stopped watching figure skating in Canada because the media decided that he was the face of figure skating and so I and others were supposed to be thrilled to have him represent to the world "Canadian excellence" in figure skating. Thank god for Patrick Chan, regardless of his failings.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, back in the day Elvis had a LOT of fans. Since the Vancouver Olympics and some of his comments, I am not a big fan of the things that come out of his mouth, but I still like to watch him skate (and I wish he would do more of it!) He is the reason I got involved in watching figure skating in '94, and I'm still here. I also now LOVE Patrick Chan. LOVE.

    If anyone has a download of this Elvis performance, or knows where to find it online, PM me. Thanks.
