Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I thought it was a new LP...
Cheer up.He's never had a chance to get the full mileage out of that program. I wish he'd never used PoTO in the first place, but maybe I'll like what he's doing so much, it won't matter... Lucky for me , I like Take 5...and lucky for me I heard good things about his new SP earlier, otherwise that description would have me tearing my hair out. Let the skaters have the wacky stories in their minds, if it helps them. I don't need to know , and I seldom want to see them acting it all out (that works for me about 25% of the time) But he can pick up 20 girls in his mind, as long as we don't know when he's playing footsie under the table with them . If it's just fabulous footwork on the ice , I'll be fine.

New version of Phantom which he has shown in Liberty was not so bad He became a bit closer to Phantom especially the last choreo step. I wish Lori would have revised the music editing though...
Argh Patrick, enough with the bike accidents! Please be healthy for Skate Canada. Good news about the quads though!
hmm...where did I see something like that beforeAt one point in his program, he’s got a girl on each arm when he runs into a mad boyfriend and gets punched.
"it doesn't matter if you love what you do, but that you do what you love"
a quote Tomas Verner () gave me to think about...
What about a Quad and second Axel?
He cannot be considered as a minion any more for judges.
The quad he did in the SP at Liberty was absolutely gorgeous, so hopefully he can keep it up.
I like that he's shaking things up a bit with his program this year, trying something out of his comfort zone. I only wish more skaters would do this.
Can't wait to see him rock the GP circuit this year!
Good to hear his training has been great.. well until he almost broke his back though. Hope he gets better soon. I'm with others on POTO so I won't be really holding my breath for the long, but I absolutely like the new short. What a charming program that is.
And who's the figurative girl he's thinking about on the ice while he's trying to pick up?
"Nobody," he said with a smile.
I don't think the "new" POTO is a significant step up from last year. Maybe some things have been worked around, but the horrible music cuts are the same...and IMO there's only so much someone can do with that.
I'm looking forward to seeing Chan this season.
Just watched the SP from Liberty over at YouTube and very much like what I saw. I'll admit I wasn't thrilled when I heard he'd be using Take 5 for one of his programs this season, as it's never really been one of my favourite pieces of music, but after watching that SP and even as rough/early early season as it was...I'm a convert. Can't wait to see how it looks come Skate Canada time and more miles under it.
