    Hey, that's an insult to his 'into the boards' jumping passes. I mean...

    Right. Evan. I'm happy to see that Evan wants to come back. That said, I won't believe it until I see him start a short program on the ice.

    ^^^ Why not? Evan is a hard and consistent worker and he seems to have tamed the quad. I am all excited at the prospect of "Epic Battle of the Olympic Gold Medallists"!

    Evan is so handsome!
    Yes, and he looks younger now than in the Olympic season.

    Good grief -- that really does look like an older photo of him!

    So you want to see another battle between one skater who can't do quads and another who is all about the quads and little else such as transitions choreography and spins? No thank you. I'll root for the skaters who have pushed the sport forward in the last couple years and not just in jumps.

    I'm all for watching as many top-level and accomplished skaters give it their best shot. I hope they all skate clean and may the best man win.

    Battle for what. The unofficial pewter medal at the Olympics (if they are lucky). The last 2 Olympic Gold medalists you refer to would have been thrashed in the Nice LP with their Vancouver efforts.

    Not really fair to start comparing Vancouver with anything, since that's nearly 3 seasons ago. It's irrelevant.

    If Evan (and Plushy) are serious about their comebacks, they're working on keep their skating relevant.

    In all fairness, neither Chan or Takahashi's Vancouver performances would have faired as well at Nice either. Both skaters have improved since Vancouver and the scoring system is different. Only time will tell if Lysacek, Plushenko or Weir can come back and be competitive. However, I am interested to see each of these skaters make a comeback.

    Evan needs a good stylist. The suit is nice, but that hair does not flatter him at all.

    I agree re the hair. Evan's hair has looked better -- he seems a bit tired too, perhaps from the travel, etc.

    Wow, tho' can that gold medal be any huger? Wonder what the gold medal designers have in store for Sochi?

    Thank you, Jaana! The first webcast the article mentions can be seen here:

    https://statedept.connectsolutions.c...&pbMode=normal

    It begins at the 16-minute mark, Evan's speech is about 15 minutes long, and then there is a Q & A.

    Enjoy!

    Look at the poise and confidence from this young man.

    I can't wait to see him skate again.

    There has been clips from Roxanne in All That Skate earlier, but this must be a rather new one of very nice quality:
