    I am so sad he wasn't able to go clean tonight but am encouraged that he landed a clean quad and a 3 axel.

    Just got a chance to watch the LP again. He is so brilliant, and a definite performer. Watching the second time, not "in the moment" of the actual competition, it seemed to me as if he almost lost steam halfway through. He poured his heart and soul into his SP last night. I wonder just how much better this performance would have been if he had gotten a down day between the two programs, just as the dancers are getting...
    Either way-love his skating, and hoping great things for the rest of the season! Looking forward to watching IN for Nationals. Wishing him all the best!!!

    I've been a captivated uber of Jeremy's since I first saw him skate, which was at the 2007 Nationals LP skating to Tom Dickson choreography. He was the first male skater broadcast in the LP because his SP to American Beauty's "Dead Already" had not gone as planned, so he was skating in the penultimate group. I remembered loving his sophisticated music choices and the way he moved his body over the ice even upon first viewing him and I knew I was watching something very special. I recognized his immense talent immediately, thinking even then he was already a better and more interesting skater than the more publicized Lysacek and Weir. I consistently see shades of Robin Cousins and Matt Savoie in his skating. Everything about him is beautiful and truly touches my soul. I feel so fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to watch him do what he does on the ice. I feel his love and passion for skating in every program he takes on; he is one of the few skaters currently who makes a human connection when he is performing. He is always giving the audience moments to savor and treasure when he is performing, whether it is a thoughtful arm movement or a pensive or playful look or a perfectly timed musical transition that takes your breath away. I always sense that he has taken great care and thought about how his music, movement, and programs touch and affect people emotionally. For me, he is the king of artistic nuances in the current skating world. What else can I say other than he really is Jeremazing!

    museksk8r, fantastic post.

    The highest complement I can pay Jeremy is to say that he is skating the kind of programs that John Curry would do, were he skating today.
    Technically difficult; combining intelligence, purpose, and artistic focus.

    He invites the viewer "inside" his programs and you can see/appreciate the thought and intent behind them.
    Very rare, indeed.

    Yes, that's what it is. He draws you into his programs and I think he did a good job last night.

    Oh yeah, I'm not a Jeremy uber but I do appreciate his skating and it was quite pleasing to watch him. Good luck to you the rest of the season Jeremy.
    Crazy about sports!

    I really hope he makes the US worlds team this year. He probably will, unless he finishes off the podium, but he should win the championship, just to make sure he gets on the team.

    Why do I feel that the international judges don't respect him as much as they should? May be the mistakes are hurting him and creating certain biases....?

    Actually I'm encouraged by the scores he received even with 2 falls in the FS at GPF. The PCS was right up there (unlike those in the past), and if he can hold himself together he is a major threat to world podium. Inconsistencies hurt him for sure, but he is the only one who can untie the bells now.

    The opening was just so out of this world. If he can skate this program cleanly by the end of the season, OMG. My head might explode with happiness.

    I think his reputation has suffered because of his poor showing in Vancouver, and also because he didn't win anything or go to worlds last season. His PCS are moving up, and I hope they will continue to grow as the season progresses.

    I watched the men's GPF LP on NBC today, instead of the online streaming that's usually my only option for watching skating. Even just seeing Jeremy's skating on a bigger screen makes me appreciate it so much more. He must be breathtaking to watch live in the arena.

    Jeremy was FAN-FCUKING-TASTIC tonight at Nationals!!! Best outing of his SP yet!

    His SP scored a 90.23, a US record

    After he finished his jumps, I was cheering so loudly that I woke my kid up

    Thrilled for him tonight!! Really, a delightful performance-he nailed it.

    I love that SP, it just suits him so, so well. Can't wait for the LP!

    Well done, Jeremy

    Did MiniCyn complain about your liking "Sing Sing Sing"?

    I don't know if there's anything I can say that hasn't already been said... so I'll just add some more cheering.

    Because her dad and I both love swing music, MiniCyn's been exposed to Sing Sing Sing and all kinds of swing music by Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, and other BB artists since she was a baby. She didn't exactly appreciate being jolted awake; I was wearing my earbuds so she didn't hear any of the music or the blathering of the commentators. She only heard my cheering and yelling, which caused her to bust into the office to complain. When I started explaining what I just watched, she was as she has no love for my overly-detailed pbp, my Jeremy-gushing, and how his skating matched perfectly w/ SSS and the other Big Band songs in it . As she left the room, she grumbled something along the lines that in my case, it should have been named "Scream Scream Scream" .

    Well deserved He knocked it out of the park. Nice to see his skate rewarded. Abbott & Rippon 1 & 2--a good night indeed!
