In addition, I've been on the board long enough to tell which IDs are not so Evan friendly.
Like it or not, Evan IS the first US man to top the ISU world ranking since it's initiated in 2007. It might be nothing comparing to what uncle Dick has accomplished, but it IS something SPECIAL for Evan and his fans. This is Evan's thread after all.
But that doesn't mean I can't take any criticism. On the contrary, constructive criticisms and suggestions are always welcome.
In one of the interviews that Evan gave during DWTS, he answered a question regarding how he felt about the judges' criticisms, I can't agree more.
Being nice, polite and respectful shouldn't be THAT difficult, right? I just want this thread to be positive and cheerful. That's all.Q: You’re judged for a living, but I imagine the judges on Dancing with the Stars are less predictable for you than in skating. Is it nerve-wracking having to field less guessable criticisms?
A: As far as us training during the week, all we have to really go on for the next week is the judges’ feedback. So we just hope for the most part that if it’s criticism, that it’s constructive, that it’s information we can put to use in our training week. And whatever maybe is not constructive, I’ve just learned in my life to ignore. These judges couldn’t — if they tried — be as harsh as some of the criticism I’ve got in skating. I try to pinpoint the good information in what they’re saying, and you know, please them the next week around.
Thanks for all the photos and links. Evan looks great.
Thanks so much for the great threa, aymkjb88, a real treat for us Evan fans! So nice to him looking so good at the ESPYs with his DWTS buds!

I beg your pardon, but what gives you the authority to say who is and is not welcome on an FSU thread?
This is FSU; like it or not, every FSU poster is welcome to post on every thread on this board. If you have a problem with a poster actually breaking the rules, report it to the admins. Otherwise, threads are not restricted.

The new haircut does wonders for him.
He's looking very dapper these days
On the Jay Leno show last night they had a segment on with a roving comedian (can't remember his name but it was not Ross) at the ESPY Awards. He had a table set up near the Red Carpet with glasses of beer and he would ask the celebrities walking down the RC to play. They had to pop a small ball into the glass of beer and if successful the comedian would drink the beer. Apparently this is a popular game because some of the celebrities knew about the game and were good at it.
Evan was walking down the RC and the comedian called Evan over. He said a lot of silly stuff to Evan about skating but he got Evan to play. Evan did not get one ball in the glass.
The whole segment was sort of silly but funny and it was nice to see Evan.
Surely he jests I just can't see him being able to act, emote and insert inflection into his voice. I guess soenone is just going to have to give him a part and wait for the critics' reactions.
There's no official announcement about his show schedule yet, the only time I heard him mentioning that he might go to China was in the interview I posted. I do remember Shen/Zhao said in a post Olympic interview that they plan to invite all the 2010 Olympic medalists to their show this fall, and Evan's name was proposed. So let's wait and see. Is that for their wedding? If so, it'll be a very special memory.
