    ^^ Ah, yes, skatesindreams!

    Already Jeremy has won my heart and my vote as the best artist of his generation of skaters.

    In Jeremy's own words from the IN article posted above:

    Each time I see Yuka skate, I am impressed to see that every step has a purpose and every movement has a reason. I want to bring that into my skating. We try to tell a story without words, but with the flow of our blade edges...

    I have had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the brightest members of the 'Academy of Skating.' I worked with Janet Lynn, Yuka, Kurt Browning, Christopher Dean. I started skating because of Robin Cousins. Paul Wylie was my mentor...

    In the past four years, my pledge has been to bring back what skating was. I grew up loving skating as it used to be. I want it to be my legacy to bring it back.

    I echo Jean-Christophe Berlot's apt sentiment:

    Good luck, Master. For now and forever.

    Reading J-C Berlot's article, I feel like he was writing my love letter to Jeremy; loved the romantic sentiment between Jeremy, the ice, and the audience. <3 I too believe that Jeremy Abbott is the master artist of his generation of skaters! He picked up the mantle that was left by Lambiel, Buttle, and Savoie. It was wonderful to see "The Spy" program skated cleanly in France; what a jewel that program is for Abbott and I love how it stretches his versatility on the ice. He truly can interpret anything! "Bring Him Home" is coming along very nicely and I absolutely cannot wait to see it skated cleanly one day! Jeremy pours his heart onto the ice canvas in that program and I cannot wait for him to perfect that masterpiece one day. Talk about getting "the chills" . . . I am just thinking about it!

    Museksk8r, I love your post. I feel the same way. Ever since I saw Jeremy for the first time, I knew he is the musician of his generation. Even with his- then- very introverted ways and lack of EX numbers, he just lived music on ice. It is so wonderful to see him getting recognition for his- huge!- talent. And now that he choreographs his programs, he is a creative force, as well. It took him longer than some ( see Lambiel, an earlier bloomer), but Jeremy got to where his talents are realized and acknowledged. I am so happy for him.

    I hope that he can have a great competition; and receive the scores/recognition he deserves, at US Nationals/Worlds.

    So I saw Jeremy at TEB live and he was amazing - especially in the short. I also got to meet him afterward. He was so nice and took a picture with me even though his agent was telling him he had to leave.

    Amen to all that! Was at TEB too and one thing I really liked aside from all his usual qualities was that he really fought though his LP and didn't lose his nerve when he made mistakes, it was good to see such determination.

    I just only saw the competition on television, but loved the way Jeremy remained in character with the music throughout his free skate - even when some jumps were not landed quite perfectly.

    Kurt and Tracy were extremely complementary to Jeremy, as choreographer and skater/artist, during their commentary for TEB.

    Jeremy really need to clean his amazing pair of gems this year, just so i can put it on my fav list. Please win the US championship this year, my fav US men's skater.

    His Bring me home remains amazing as the music.

    Really? Well, I suppose it's a cool slogan for Detroit and DSC skaters too.

    The tweeted photo of Jeremy with Ashley & Alissa was taken at the Scott Hamilton CARES benefit show in early November - thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...nefit-ice-show

    Jeremy is featured on the cover of the December issue of SKATING magazine: http://skatingmagazineblog.com/2012/...ecember-cover/

    Just bumping this up to express my respect for Jeremy Abbott as a skater, artist and person.

    He has brought so much to the sport-so much more than Worlds placements, or Nationals placements.

    Heart, originality, variety of expression, musicality, artistry. Just to watch him skate around is amazing.

    I am not sure what his being left off the 4CC team means. Not sure what his most recent tweet means.

    Retiring? I know it has to happen some day. Personally, I hope he recovers to skate again next season.

    Either way, he deserves respect for his accomplishments.

    Not sure where the idea of retirement came from..... Did not read that into his tweets.
    Jeremy will come back next season, no doubt in my mind. He had a rough day. That's all. He needs to find his anchor and build from that.

    But with no points from 4cc will he get gp invites? USFS dumped him from 4CC-will they even submit his name for the GP series?
