Yeah, you don't have to worry too much about scheduling conflicts with other shows when it's being broadcast at midnight... Or talk shows in the afternoon. No prime time coverage... but then again, it's great that they are showing it after it had to be rescheduled. Does anyone know for sure that BOLD will be broadcasting the whole event?

As posted in the Worlds forum - tv coverage thread - PJ has already said that worlds will be on Bold. Also it was announced during CBC coverage of 4CC that worlds would be on Bold, CBC and cbc.ca
What I find strange is that the article appears to be saying that Bryce didn't see this coming, which could be interpreted as he didn't realize how unhappy Jessica was. I find that very hard to believe. If he really didn't realize how unhappy Jessica was, it explains a lot about why she was unhappy. It indicates a significant lack of sensitivity on Bryce's part.
I realize the article was trying to make Bryce look sensitive and introspective, but IMHO it does the opposite. That said, I do hope he recovers from his injury and is able to find a partner to compete with. They are both lovely skaters and the Canadian skating scene would benefit greatly from having them both back in some capacity.
A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer
Major props to this girl. She has such a great work ethic. This will take her a long way. It’s wonderful that her family will finally get the opportunity to watch her compete at Worlds."I'm skating, studying, teaching and doing ice shows, so not a lot of time to rest, but I like it that way," she said.
No lack of confidence here. Good for them. I just hope they don’t end up going to Zoueva for choreography. Their style and look is already far too similar to V&M IMHO."Mitch likes to say 'I now know we won't be alternates again nextyear."

good article on the emotional involvement of the coaches and their skaters in dealing with preparing them for worlds..

On another board I saw people saying that no teams break up after 8 years....how horrible...how could she do this to him? People were crying for him...she was so unfair - it came out of the blue. (Maybe they are being shipped as a couple, I don't know.) I'm not sure how long those posters felt she needed to stay with the partnership - 4 more years maybe, or maybe for as long as he wanted to keep on skating?
I don't think very many people here at this board would be likely to say this "came out of the blue". They've struggled for the last couple of years, haven't looked happy on the ice (especially Jessica), but managed to scrape through to the Vancouver Olys - good for them.
But look at the good side. They have won 3 Canadian titles, world bronze, they've participated in two Olympic games - a very successful career, indeed. And they have had some very special performances - 2008 Worlds and the 2010 Canadians FD to name a couple. They should be very proud of all that, but moving on at some point is inevitable and surely Bryce knows that.
Given all of their emotional (and physical) traumas, I'm not surprised that she feels she is ready for the next chapter in her life now. Sometimes you don't decide or accept that it's time to move on until an outside event forces your hand - in this case, their season off this year, which forced her to make some changes and train on her own. This probably gave her a chance to take stock, and led to her decision.
I don't see a villain here. Perhaps in a couple of years, he'll even decide that she was right.
Having said all that, he is much better off without her. I wish him a world of success in whatever he chooses to do
There are two sides to every story, especially when it comes to personal relationships, so I will remember their achievements and wish them both well.
In fairness to Jessica, how much longer should she be expected to put her skating on hold waiting for him to possibly be ready to return. I think his chances are pretty slim given the type of injury he has sustained, and the likelihood of it happening again...
Globe and Mail article (April 14, 2011): Chan tries to stay razor sharp
Chan wonders how the postponement of the world championships will affect skaters for next season. It put a crimp in his between-season rest time. He’s already trying to think of music for a new long program for next season, and yet he’s not finished with the old one. “I’m not good at multitasking,” he said.
And he’s also looking ahead at the rest of his life. Last month, he was accepted into a unique university in Colorado, which will allow him to train while studying international economics. He will take one course at a time, each running 3 ½ to 4 weeks before he writes an exam. The classes at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, where Chan trains, run from 9 a.m. to noon local time.
Have you seen what Meagan Duhamel is practicing in her 'spare time'? It's only on land - no skates - and not her regular partner but this is the first one I've seen.

It appears that Cody Hay is no longer looking for a new partner, at least that's inferred in this article about the appearance of Langlois & Hay at a club show in Nova Scotia: http://www.ngnews.ca/News/Local/2011...-Sunday-show/1
Can't skate but love to watch
Oh my what an interesting photograph of Cody! I guess the tent is up.
But seriously, this is a lovely article. They seem really happy to be coaching and working together, and it does sound like Cody considers himself to be retired now. They're engaged, I believe - best wishes to them.

Key quotes from Patrick Chan press conference
I don't think there's such thing as tasting victory. I just believe in doing the right things...When I get to competition I just have to keep thinking about what I've been doing in practice..
