    Nobody sells a program like Plushenko. Nobody. I was so glad I got to see that and so wished I could have been there. What a grrrreat moment from a skater I always knew would make history. So happy for him, so very VERY happy. Whee!! :-D

    What did you all think of Plushy's LP music? When I first heard he was going to skate 'The Best of Plushenko' I thought this could be disjointed and not work. After watching his performance on Sunday, I thought it worked very well when he skated to music from The Godfather, Njinski(opening with Scheherzade), Tosca. I am forgetting the last one. IIRC Saint Petersburg 300 was not included (why?). It made me almost nostalgic for those great performances.

    Yes, I'm sure Yana was the motivation for Plushy..and he would be atwo-time medalist without Yana..

    I don't like too much that article..funny, but rude at the same time..

    I first saw him skate live in Vancouver at the 2001 Worlds and I became an instant fan. I saw him skate live many times with COI and also at the 2002 Olympics. He has a presence on the ice like no one else. I am so happy that he is still skating!

    This worries me. Is his back bothering him? I hope he can skate tomorrow (and day after too)

    Hope he holds up and makes it through the SP and LP. Don't think he can contend with Chan or Hanyu but could be a good battle for bronze with Fernandez, Machida, Reynolds and dark horses Ten and Takahashi. He's already beaten Machida and Reynolds in the team event and looks a lot better than Takahashi or Ten have looked this year. Anything can happen with Plushenko on the ice! Can't wait to see it play out.

    Ten has not skated well this whole season. Takahashi is injured. Reynolds and Machida have the jumps but not the performance. If Plushy skates well, he can challenge them for the bronze. Fernandez would be tough to beat; he has the jumps, the performance, and Orser as his coach. :)

    ETA: You cannot ignore Han Yan. He is a wonderful young skater.

    It will be very tough for Plushy! I'll be sending him all my support during the competition. Hanyu, Javi and Chan are very strong. Only if Evgeni is clean and they bomb big time, Plushy has a chance to medal.

    Zhenya made me cry; I feel so bad for him at this tough moment. I hate that Evgeny is in too much pain to compete, but he must focus on healing and rest now. He is still an amazing champion and a legend in his sport. Thanks for the good memories, Zhenya!

    I saw it. It wasn't an outright splat, but he clearly was very uncomfortable after the axel attempt.

    I just feel bad for Kovtun - I've been reading that Plushenko could have withdrawn after the team event and been replaced if he chose to.

    it was awful for him to go out like that,but you can't possibly do more for a country than he has . russia would not have won gold in the team's comp without his help. is kovtun's fault that russia had only one spot for olys. he is one of the biggest legend in the sport.

    Extremely disappointing even if not surprising. To look on the bright side, he gave us 2 more Olympics than most of us could have imagined possible and yet he stills leaves us wanting more. Thanks to Plushenko for the memories- love or hate, truly one of a kind.
