    Have we already got a thread like this?

    Anyway... what are your personal highlights of the past season?

    L_S's:

    -Joannie's performances in Vancouver, particularly the SP.
    -Pang/Tong's LP in Vancouver and their silver medal. Haven't been so happy with a performance since Shiz.
    -Everything Shen/Zhao, particularly their reaction in the KnC at winning the OGM. Wooooo!
    -Laura Lepisto's Olys LP esp. the 3-3 and the lutz, and her world bronze.
    -Kiira's Oly LP.
    -Dai-Chan winning worlds and his Oly SP/bronze.
    -Yu-Na Kim handling the pressure brilliantly in Vancouver. And guiltiy, her "F*** off" reaction after falling on the sal at worlds in the LP and re-arranging her knickers in the process
    -Mao's LP. Yes I effing loved it. Also, her fantastic cmeback at Worlds (and I guess the Olys too)
    -Miki's Worlds LP. restored my faith in her.
    -Miki's hilarious LP dresses; the gorgeous brown one she wore at Rostelecom being my favourite.
    -Stephane Lambiels LP costume. :rofl:
    -Elena Glebova's hair and homage to Surya Bonaly (her LP dress)
    -Evan Lysacek, Mr Macho Man, sitting in the KnC after his Oly SP, decked to the eyeballs in glitter, puffed sleeves and fake tan, ready to bawl his eyes out.
    -Johnny's Oly LP.
    -Faiella/Scalli at Euros, and winning world bronze.
    -Davis/White's OD/FD at Worlds.
    -Akiko Suzuki consistently rawkin it.
    -DomShabs OD costumes. :lol:
    -Linichuk's hair and fur ensembles.

    I'm sure I can think of hundreds more. :D

    - Yu na kim fantastic winning performance in Vancouver. Just brilliant, a star is born !
    - Mao Asada extraordinary 3axels all the season.
    - Lysacek win : not that I like him or his skating particularly, but he was so perfect, so professional, so focused that a pretentious Plushenko and a not miskate free's LP from Takahashi couldn't handle the level of Lysacek performance. Lysacek is the exemple to follow to win.
    - Pang & Tong Olympic performance, they should have won IMO
    - Virtue & Moir, the new gods of ice dance after their LP in Vancouver. Grace, power, beauty, the full package.
    - Mao Asada's win at worlds. She deserved a title this year.

    Great thread!
    I like yours, plus I'd add some of mine
    -S/S debut of their program at SC: breathtaking
    -The discovery of future stars like I/K, the new baby chinese in pairs and Hanyu who's gonna be the next rockstar, I'm sure
    -The retirements by Lysacek and Plushenko...pliz!
    -Del/scho programs at Vancouver; couldn't care less about their form, that was truly a gift
    -The new breed in men's: Amodio and Javi. And the consolidation of Mirai as the new US star
    -I'd like more shirtless photos next season by Joubert, Bourzat, Smirn, Trank, Charlie...

    Evan winning the Olympics! :cheer2: That's what working your butt off will get you. Atta boy.

    Stephane's Oly SP. Why? I love that SP.

    The Kerrs doing their Scottish OD at Worlds. I also love this one.

    Sasha Cohen actually showing up at Nationals. Yeah, she bombed, but that's obvious. Took guts to show up undertrained like that because you'd be there (and this from a naysayer!).

    Miraaaaaai!

    Breznia!

    Shen and Zhao winning Oly gold. :D

    I feel like the Olympic season was a century ago!:lol: here are the moments that I still remember -

    *Evan winning the Olympic title, the right guy won.
    *Every time D/W performed their OD!
    *Every time Daisuke Takahashi delivered a perfect SP.
    *Mukhortova/Trankov's TEB LP, I won't argue that Love Story is a plain program but it was the first time ever that they did a clean LP, and as a M/T fan I just loved it.
    *Aliona/Robin's SP and Out of Africa LP, my highlights all the time
    *the entire competitions of Men's SP and Ladies SP at Olympics, as well as the Men's SP at worlds.
    *Don't know why but I really liked the Evan-Nobu-Johnny podium at GPF :rofl:
    *The moment I saw Hao Zhang's first LP costume (the golden bra) with my own eyes! :lol::eek::scream:

    Let's see:

    -- Evan winning Olympic gold. :respec:
    -- Every lady in the last group for the Olympic freeskate -- I thought they were all fantastic.
    -- S&Z's amazing season capped off with that long-awaited OGM.
    -- Adrian Schulteiss's voidy freeskate.
    -- Florent Amodio's SA freeskate.
    -- Mirai Nagasu's Nationals freeskate.
    -- Brian Joubert and his coach pumping fists at each other during his Worlds SP. :lol:
    -- Kevin VdP's Worlds freeskate. I'm not a big fan of his skating, but he did a great job and his emotion at the end was really touching.

    Sasha's SP at nationals, when she went blazing out there in Scarlett O'Hara mode and fought her way through that program. :cheer2:

    All of D&W's OD and FD performances. This is the year they made an uber out of me.

    Joannie's amazing Olympic performances.

    Evan's Olympic win.

    Florent Amodio's performances. Blew me away every time.

    And don't shoot me, but I'm feeling pretty partial to Denney/Barrett's nationals performances. They may be unpolished, but that girl is a firecracker! Can't wait to see where they go from here.

    Oh top of all the obvious stuff....Min-Jung's reactions in the Kiss N Cry at 4CC and Olympics. Soo cute :). Oh and Anna Ovcharova's SP at Junior Worlds and how happy/surprised she was after she realized she was in the lead after that segment. What can I say, the young cute skaters are just adorable :D

    The one at TEB was absolutely amazing. Because after landing it, the crowd was crazy, everybody said "WOW" at the same time. It was a great moment Live !

    And his 4CC's LP and gold medal :)

    Mirai's SP's at Nationals (she made me cry), the Olympics and Worlds. Her entire performance at the Olympics.
    The impact of Davis and White's FD and their wonderful and groundbreaking OD
    Although not a complete fan, I have to give Jeremy kudos for his masterful performance at Nationals
    Takahashi's footwork sequences
    Again, although not a complete fan, Evan Lysacek's getting business done when he had to

    - The FD at the Olympics, especially the Virtue-Moir vs. Davis-White showdown

    - Lysacek's SP and LP at Olympics
    - Joannie's Olympic SP
    - Mirai's Olympic LP, and Worlds SP

    Ashley's LP and Mirai's SP. No particular performance (although I guess I liked Mirai's best at nationals and Ashley's at her GP events). I just liked the programs.

    Seeing Shen & Zhao's gorgeous short program in person from the third row at Skate America. I nearly cried. For me, that is one of the most beautiful skating programs ever. Every time I watched it this season, it moved me. Obviously seeing them win Olympic gold was also an incredibly joyous and special and wonderful moment, but a touch less personal for me.
