    Evan Wins Thurman Munson Award!

    The announcement was made this morning and the award will be presented on Feb. 1 in New York.

    The Thurman Munson Award is a great honor in sport to acknowledge excellence in competition and philanthropic work within the community

    Congratulations Evan!

    :huh: Are you referring to the Tweet of the Week? Looks proper to me. Are you sure that you "get the difference"?

    Otherwise: "Excellent pettymongering, my friend!"

    ETA, cough, perhaps you should watch your own skills when bashing another about his.

    A new 90 sec trailer of the film RISE is available now on its official website and Utube. The movie will hit more than 500 theaters in all 50 states on Feb 17, don't miss this once in a life time experience.

    As the spokesman and one of the headliners of the film, Evan will do a special performance at the World Premier at Times Square in New York City hosted by Matt Lauer.

    Are they going to show his performance in theaters ? I hope so.
    I have my tickets already and by the way Feb 17 is my birthday :). A perfect way to celebrate.

    As I said in the other thread, I'm not surprised that he won't be competing, but I'll miss him anyhow. Interesting that he's skating in the exhibition -- I'm definitely looking forward to that (assuming they show it on TV).

    ^ Thx guys!

    Just updated the schedule on this page. A few more events are added.

    Evan and Shizuka Arakawa will open CitiBank Ice Rink in Tokyo on Jan. 6 (at Japanese time 11:30am). It's the largest outdoor public skating rink in Tokyo. He'll also attend "Billboard Live" later of the day.

    Thank you for updating the schedule! However, I think that the Munson Award dinner is Feb. 1st instead of Feb. 10th.

    Is there an interview somewhere where Evan has talked about the role he is playing for USFS promoting RISE? I recall reading that he helped with narrative for the movie....anything else? Are there any other skaters, like Sasha, MK, Sarah H that are helping with the promotion of RISE?

    @ B.Cooper:

    No, he kept it very low profile. All we know so far is that he did some secret shooting in NYC last year, one of the shots is the slow motion jump shown in the official trailer. He's not a storyteller, but he and Frank will be headliners of one key storyline in the documentary film.

    He's the official spokesman of the film and will do special exibition filming for Rise premier to make tribute to the the victims in 61' crash. Nobody else has been announced by the producer as spokesman at this point.

    ^^ Thank you inthemiddle. Kudos to all the wonderful Evan fans who got up so early to cheer him up in spite of the snow blizzard in NYC this morning, what a great crowd! :cheer2:

    Here's his long interview with Fox news about SOI tour and some of the charity work he's heavily involved in:

    Olympic Gold Medalist Doing Good

    Thought his shyness to talk about himself is quite adorable. :swoon:

    Yes, I like the college idea, too. On the other hand doing maybe just one movie might be fun for him, I guess.
