    Imagine going to a restaurant and being greeted by this young, handsome, fresh-fashed man...and then turning on your TV a few weeks later and seeing that same guy winning the National title! :lol:

    Very gracious of Max, when he must have wondering what he would have done in that short.

    Weir really should just shut up. He's sounding worse and worse and more and more bitter.

    Jason, Max and Joshua all have personality, they all have their own unique brand of artistry, they're all exceptional athletes with great jumps. Not only does Weir sound bitter, he is horrendously misinformed.

    I think right now Josh is the most well rounded skater of the young guys coming up. He's artistic and has big jumps. He just needs to finally master the quad and he will be a world champion one day.

    Josh has never wowed me. I'm looking forward to the day he does since so many people rave about him.

    I'm a big fan of Josh and think he has so much potential but if you haven't been wowed by him, you'll probably not be. He seems painfully shy so that makes the performance aspect difficult. If he can learn how to come out of himself more and get that quad steady, he really should be right there at the top.

    Okay, enough of the thread hijack. Love that tweet from Max. Not getting to go to the Olympics must have been heart-breaking for him but he still managed to congratulate the US team. I hope he can rock the house at Worlds.

    I agree. Max has always been extremely gracious and polite. I would love to see him continue his progress, and rock two clean skates at Worlds! :cheer:
