    My dislike isn't fully irrational. ;)

    One reason: His costumes are always FUG.

    The day I see him in a costume which isn't vomit inducing, I might reconsider. ;)

    OMG, you are so twisted... :p his costumes are often totally awesome! Loved the costumes from his 2006/2007 LP, 07/08 LP (in both cases, looooved the gloves), 09/10 LP and this season's SP. I mean, yeah, sometimes the costumes ARE pretty bad, but hey, show me a skater who ALWAYS dresses nicely.

    Please. He is a very attractive young man and I love most of his costumes. I thought both his costumes at CoC were very flattering and tasteful.

    Jeffrey Buttle! :encore: At the very least, I don't recall him ever wearing an outfit that I thought was absolutely fugly.

    I generally like Tomas' costumes, and even when he's wearing a hideous one, I forgive him because he's such a cute guy. :swoon:

    Btw, does he allow his fans to friend him on Facebook?

    I did look out fo him at COC beacause of Pinky's enthusiasm for him. Loved his Gene Kelly. I haven't seen the MJ yet, but Universal Sports is still running COC this week.

    They can certainly be hit or miss. Maybe he can get his girlfriend to start designing his costumes? She seems to have good style.

    Really? I knew it said that on his facebook but I thought it was a joke. I think he used to date a girl back in the Czech Republic but that must have ended awhile ago.

    Aww, I love Tomas too. Wishing him well this season.
    Seriously, a skater that talented (and cute!) should have at least one World medal to show for it! :)

    Tomas was a guest in the CBC studio this afternoon during the Skate America coverage. He talked about the changes in his training, etc. for this season. He gave quite a bit of credit to Lori Nichol (doing commentary duty today instead of Tracy Wilson).

    I totally squealed like a fangirl in front of my television when I saw Tomas on CBC!!! :cheer: I didn't know that he'd make an appearance, so it was a wonderful surprise! :biggrinbo

    Thanks for the link! :)

    I was just curious in my previous post if any fan has tried to friend Tomas on Facebook. I haven't made an attempt since I fear that I might appear somewhat stalker-ish. :shuffle:

    Yes, Tomas on CBC this afternoon was sweet!! I loved the part about how he's Tigger when he's on and Eeyore when he's off, and he has keychains to represent both states.. so cute!! And Lori (Nichol) calls him Tommy!! bahaha

    Tomas is very :cool:

    I can see Tomas skating to music (or perhaps a medley of music) from Steve McQueen movies, such as Bullitt and The Thomas Crown Affair. Maybe a Risky Business exhibition too, with that famous Tom Cruise slide, only done on skates ... would be fun to see.

    Also, perhaps Tomas could work his own magic portraying Paul Newman's Cool Hand Luke and Hud characters. :)

    I did a couple years ago (and got approved) and I think he has a lot of fan-friends on facebook. Just say in your request that you're a fan but that you'd understand if he'd rather keep it to people he knows personally.

    Has anyone noticed that when Kurt Browning tries to pronounce his Czech name he always butchers it? It's seriously not that difficult.
