    Every time icenetwork would zoom in on Jeremy's upper body, I was screaming inside- "NO, the feet, you have to show his feet, you are missing it!". The footwork in that SP is unbelievably difficult and- so cool :D Amazing SP from Jeremy, eagerly waiting for the LP. That might be the best I've seen him perform.

    Congrats, Jeremy! I can't wait to see the free--favourite LP this season. I get choked up every time I watch it.

    What I hope is now that Jeremy has a considerable lead over everybody else, it will help take some of the pressure off him and we will finally get to see this masterpiece of a long program skated to its potential.

    :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2: He STAYED VERTICAL!!! (P.S. Shut up Scott)

    I'm totally happy for Jeremy after that heartbreaking Nationals last year. Hope he can skate the same way at Worlds.

    Did anyone notice/think he changed his quad entrance a bit? He used to skate backwards and turn in the last minute. The two times he landed it he faced the way he was jumping before taking off.

    He was amazing. I really hope he can be in the battle for the silver at Worlds this year (well I would hope the gold battle but we all know there isnt one).

    Yet another skater everyone wrote off, and he's skating better than ever. This must be the year of the underdogs, we had Caroline, Ashley and now Jeremy prove everyone wrong. :)

    Who wrote off Jeremy? He just had a bad year last year with boot problems and all.

    :swoon: Mesmerizing skate :swoon:. Other skaters can look like they work twice as hard but still not getting the speed and flow Jeremy has :swoon:

    Good that he didn't skate completely perfect at Nationals. Looking forward for him to peak at the right time.

    I would never wish a slump on any skater.
    Heaven forbid that the "skate gods" listen!

    Simply overjoyed for Jeremy.
    He's an artist.

    Scott was right. Abbott was great but not perfect, which gives him room and motivation to improvement for Worlds. (i.e. better loop, better sal, one of the lutz combos should be a 3/3 etc).

    I am happiest for the fact that he stayed calm and focused throughout. (Actually he and Rippon both)

    I don't have anything useful to say in here except that I adore Jeremy's skating, and I'm thrilled that my favorite American skaters took both the Men's and Ladies' titles. I can't even remember the last time that happened. Is there an Ashley uber thread yet?

    There is a report that JAs step dad is hospitalized after collapsing during the free skate. Looking for a source.

    His FS is stunning, one of my all time favorites. I hope he can skate this clean at Worlds. :swoon:

    I'm so happy he won back the National title! :respec: He's so amazing. I love that with each competition he has been building on the LP and making it even more special. There is still room for improvement and I really hope that he is able to perform his LP perfectly at Worlds. I'm also happy that he landed the quad in two straight competitions now. He seems comfortable with it, which I think bode wells for him as he goes onto 4CC and Worlds.

    I feel like order is restored in the world of US figure skating now that Jeremy has regained his national title. I had been wondering what the very noticeable disturbance/commotion in the audience was during his LP skate and I'm saddened that Abbott's step-dad had collapsed in the crowd while he was performing. I really hope that he is okay and makes a full recovery soon! I was and still am so over the moon for the very high level that Jeremy's skating is currently at. He was so fast, crisp, and light on his feet during both his SP and LP! He is skating with the confidence and stability of a World medalist and I hope it keeps up all the way through to the World Championships in March and all the way through to the Olympic trials and Olympics in 2014. GO JEREMY!!! :cheer2::swoon::encore:

    Did this happen on the side of the rink visible on camera? Because if it did I must *really* have been into his skate - I'm often distracted by things I see in the background and I didn't notice anything. [OT Which reminds me - why don't people who wave at the camera during a performance realize what tools they are?]

    Anyway, fantastic work by both Adam & Jeremy.

    And I'm very proud how much Detroit-area rinks continue to be represented among US and Canadian teams.

    Yes, it was definitely visible on camera. I was actually wondering if someone in the audience had collapsed or had a heart attack as there was so much commotion going on. A lot of people standing up, moving around, heads turning, people talking. Jeremy was right at the boards skating by when it happened, which makes it all the more remarkable that he skated right on unphased to nail his 3flip. He really had his tunnel vision blinders on apparently.

    Jeremy just tweeted reminding followers of his DSC1/2 predicition at the beginning of the season. He was right- he and Adam did it!

    To all the skaters who spend so much $$$$ on bad choreographers, you should hire Jeremys services in the near future.

    Joining in celebration. Great showing at Nationals, yet without feeling that perfection was achieved so it's only downhill from here ( aka 2010 Nationals).
    I love Jeremy's taste in choosing his programs, year after year. But this year might top it all.
