    This thread is dedicated to one of my favorite figure skaters of all time: Evan Lysacek. His amazing determination, dedication, passion, focus and commitment to the sport inspired me a lot. He always reminds me of the two famous slogans in sports world: Impossible is nothing. Just do it! :respec:

    Evan was nominated for ESPY "Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete"! Congratulations, well deserved! :cheer2:

    Please vote for him at: http://espn.go.com/espys/

    Welcome Jaana! I've wanted to open the thread for a while, but I'm concerned that the 'positive' posts may not fit into FSU's style very well. :lol:

    Congrats to Evan on the ESPY nomination. He seemed to have a great time going to the show as Nastia's guest, now he gets to go again as a nominee

    For those voting, you need to scroll down in the box to get to Evan's category.

    On the female Olympian side, I voted for Hannah Kearney, since the Mancuso/Vonn dramatics were too annoying.

    ^ Thanks a lot guys, Evan fans are usually very quiet and laid-back on this board, I'm glad you can step it up to show your support to him, appreciate it! :respec:

    For those of you who lives in LA area, there'll be a M&G this Saturday, don't miss it! :D

    Forgot the key part in his twilight premier message:

    their Twilight inspired Paso Doble was my favorite dance in DWTS-S10, I'm really looking forward to seeing a vampire theme new program from Evan next season! :swoon:

    Thanks for starting this thread and gathering all the info!!

    Despite Evan and Kristi this movie is still not my cup of tea, I can't stand watching Robert Pattinson, he's the worst looking actor for a vampire IMO... LOL

    I just finished voting. Wow, that was a longer ballot than I expected! Anyways, I gave Evan my vote, although that's a tough category - lots of gold-medal-winning guys in there! Hopefully the two skiiers and the two speedskaters will split votes :EVILLE::2faced:

    How weird and funny that Evan likes Twilight! :rofl: Nevertheless, he seems like he gets a lot of opportunities. Good for him. :)

    ITA, thanks folks! Most of Evan fans nice but low key, so I think we deserve to have our own thread to share the information of our beloved boy. :D

    Video from "Insider" regarding yesterday's Twilight premier:

    Team Edward or Team Jacob?

    You can find Evan and Kristi's interview at the end. The following part is not shown in the video, but mentioned in the report: :lol:

    I'll chose Team Evan too! :swoon::swoon::swoon:

    Ellen is replaying some of the most popular episodes on: The Ellen Degeneres Show Season Episode, the Evan and Anna one was shown yesterday!

    Here's another interview from the Insider, Evan is shown right after Mark and followed by Anna. :)

    Team Jake vs Team Vienna

    Once again, Evan handled it in a very classy way:

    I'm really anxious about going to the AT&T store. It doesn't look like it's in the best part of town, but at least it's only a 25 min drive for me, and it's in the middle of the day on a Saturday! Let's hope it won't take me 4 or 5 hours on the 405... lol.

    News from Icenetwork

    Lysacek could add an ESPY to his trophy case
    Olympic gold medalist up for 'Best U.S. Male Olympic Athlete'


    When you login the voting page:

    http://espn.go.com/espys/

    Make sure to check "Countdown to ESPYs", there's a cute piece: Behind the Scenens at the 2010 ESPYs Promos: an inside glimpse behind the scenes at the ESPYs commercial shoot with host Seth Meyers and 2010 Olympic Champion figure skater Evan Lysacek

    You'll know a little secret about Evan's famous Rhapsody in Blue tux. ;)

    Does anyone know which figure skaters ever won ESPYs before? I always thought figure skating is left out by ESPN and the mainstream sports market in USA, we always see football, basket ball, baseball, tennis, golf and hockey players, track and field athelets, gymnasts and swimmers got recognized in ESPYs, but figure skaters hardly ever get any recognition. :angryfire Although I won't put too much hope in this one, still hope Evan would make a miracle and win this honor for figure skating. :respec:

    Wish you and all the fans who'll be there have a good time! He'll hang around for 2 hours, which might be the longest M&G for him, I'm sure he'd love to spend some valuable one-on-one time with his fans. :rockstar::cheer2:

    Just remember that it's been one year since MJ's ... Time flys!

    In Evan's interview with Access Hollywood, he mentioned Michael's impact on him. I love "Man in the Mirror", I think it's one of his best EX numbers.

    Another gorgeous picture from the premier

    I love Kristi's dress, simple and elegant. Evan's natural skin tone is beautiful, he really should keep it that way, hopefully he'll be motivated to stop over tanning himself after watching the Twilight. :lol:

    Joannie just tweeted Evan, so cute. :D

    Fingers crossed for a victory of figure skating @ ESPYs. Go Evan and Joannie! :respec:

    Evan's Cincinnati trip is to join P&G for their Go Vibrant Campaign.

    Following is the detail for Go Vibrant Cincinnati Project, sounds very exciting.

    The meet and greet was pretty quiet! We had about ten minutes with Evan. Got to play around with the gold medal. That thing is heavy! He suggested we get Lays potato chips, the baked ones, paint them metallic, get a blue ribbon, and then we have our own Olympic gold medals. Yay.

    Yes, we had quite a long conversation with Evan today. I much preferred it to the two times I met him in Spokane - in Spokane we were rushed along and Evan didn't get a chance to be personable, which I can understand, given the amount of people.

    He was super sweet and super personable. Evan = <3

    "Dancing with Stars Lysacek coming to N.S."

    <Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek will host Ballroom with a Twist in the Schooner Showroom at Casino Nova Scotia on Aug. 12.">

    Evan´s participation in DWTS has brought him a lot of appearances, which of course was to be expected for a man who is the reigning Olympic champion.
