Yeah, like his skating or his personality or not, Evan deserves lots of cred for his determination and fight. There are things I would and have critiqued about him, and likely will continue to but it's very easy to stand on the sidelines and tear down a champion athlete's desire to still compete when the odds seem against them. Venus Williams comes to mind in this respect. I re-echo that I'd totally prefer seeing Evan, Stephane, Joubert, Johnny, Jeff B and others on a pro circuit, but at this point that wish is a bit of pie-in-the-sky. It is what it is and what will be will be. We all have our opinions, but why not see what there is to appreciate and salute as well as to critique? ETA: And, ho, ho! Speaking of the impossible, here's Johnny's take: Johnny's World: The Impossible Dream http://fcnp.com/2013/06/06/johnnys-world-the-impossible-dream/ Hmmm, somewhat a mixed message? Johnny appears to be talking about not being all that good at singing and cooking, and about how hard it was in the beginning to prove himself as a figure skater. I thought he might also be reflecting upon the humongous odds of trying another comeback in the arena that has passed him and possibly his contemporaries Evan, Joubert, et al, bye bye. Is he saying, "Drop it, cuz you'll just look silly." Is he preparing himself for the inevitable?
