    1/2 an hour long, and the two of them are having way too much fun goofing off together.

    It was largely very humorous but what about Kurt saying on the Beilmann question "we'll leave those to Johnny Weir"? and then you had Patrick saying you lose respect among the other men! Well Hanyu and Ten do impressive ones and Plushenko did it.

    WTF?! These two wish they could do a Beillmann!

    I am glad you separated Plushenko and just noted that he did it - not that he did an impressive one, (like you say Hanyu & Ten do), because I always thought Plushenko's looked pretty bad and was glad he did not revive them when he re-entered the competitive arena.

    Yeesh about the Bielman comments. But I think they come from many years of facing the whole attitude that men who figure skate are gay or sissies. Combine that with freaking Skate Canada trying to butch up its image and that's the kind of comments you get. Along with fear of sequins, too shiny or too bright spandex, feathers etc.

    My favorite moment is when they were asked who's their favorite female skater.

    Such a great rapport between them. You can tell they really get along and its not faked. Great bromance!

    Loved that the first time Kurt met Patrick he was impressed with his being a 'smartass'. But to be fair, most 13 year olds are.

    Probably trying to protect their masculinity because they are self conscious about being small men who figure skate.

    I wasn't able to watch live, but thanks for posting the video. I love how much fun they both seemed to have with the chat.

    I didn't think the Johnny remark was that big of a deal. It seemed like a harmless joke, and not truly mean-spirited.

    I think when he was at their age and could do it with both legs they were really impressive as well. He could beat alot of todays ladies. When he grew older, ouch. I always liked his donut far more.
