    I really hope that Evan can recover fully from this. I was really interested in seeing how S/B had progressed this season.

    So sad to hear this.

    I hope he recovers quickly. I was so looking forward to their programs this season.

    This makes me feel really queasy. I'd be surprised to see them back this season with achilles surgery -- the rehab is a ****. So sad.

    I know, upon reading that it was a sliced achilles, my first thought was that they'll be out for the season.

    Plus, if you have a surgery on the achilles tendon the recovery itself is very painful...I'm so sorry for him
    I hope the surgery will find out the damage was not very serious

    I hope so, too. If it does turn out to be serious, it can be a long recovery process. I'm coming up on the 1-year 'anniversary' of breaking my leg (doing a simple 3-turn) and it has been a long road back. The good news for Evan is that he's young and in great shape and will likely heal very well. Sending my best wishes to Evan for a speedy and full recovery!

    If true, then (((Evan)))

    But has this been confirmed by anyone else - like Detroit skaters' Twitter feeds/Facebook pages, or other reliable Detroit sources on this board? Selfishly holding out hope that this might not be true given that the originally quoted "source" (Aunt Joyce) has zero credibility in my book.

    It's true, unfortunately, even though there hasn't been an official confirmation, announcement or press release yet. Perhaps there will be something after Evan Bates' surgery when a more definitive prognosis can be made? Best wishes to both Evan and Emily! Skating fans are thinking of you and sending positive vibes.

    I agree that sounds likely - and lucky to come back at all. This type of injury is sometimes career-ending. But I hope the best for him.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.
