    My mistake

    It's true Patrick is dating Tess Johnson.

    I am relieved the EX costume was not designed by Tess.
    Actually I dont' like that costume
    But It's true Tess will make a costume for Patrick.
    Yes, Tu-Ly is still Patrick's designer also.

    Thanks for the info !

    It never occurred to me that the coach's certification doesn't have to meet the standards of the country for which the athlete is competing.

    We are Patrick stalkers aren't we.

    Actually, she's also in Patrick's twitter as one of his followings!

    Oh so she is. Iam just afraid what happens if they break up then. Makes coaching more complicated. Shame Christy didn't stay on in a lesser roll as they seemed to want.

    I wonder about that as well. I know you need to have level 3 certification to be at the boards at Canadian Nationals. How does that work if the coach isn't Canadian? Level 3 is A LOT more than just an on-line test. There is theoretical and practical work, including submitting a video.
    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

    David Wilson choreographed the exhibition program he skated at Canadians (diff from the one at worlds by Buttle). I heard that David will be his new choreographer, although I could perhaps see Buttle doing the short. Who knows? It would certainly save money to keep the long program, and this seems to be Chan's pattern.

    I am pretty sure I read that Chan plans to have 2 new programs next season. But maybe I imagined it?

    Interesting fact, Tess Johnson designed Jeremy Abbott's 2010 Olympic costumes. Tess is the one in the middle.

    On a happier note, and continuing thread drift , according to Wiki Angela and Ivan are expecting their first child next month! He was always one of my favourite skaters to watch too, so nice to see them happy.
    That's wonderful news- all the best to them! I loved her skating so much.

    This is now making me wonder what my other favorite skater from that time (Matt Savoie) is doing these days.....

    If it gets too much for her, I'd gladly take her place.

    Patrick's girlfriend is the one in the middle, however, someone thinks she looks like the comedian Sarah Silverman.

    Here's another profile pic of Tess and I can see a slight resemblance to the comedian.

    I remember reading the same thing. Not sure if that will change now if he loses time coach hunting but that was his plan.

    ITA, he's become surprisingly attractive the last year or so.

    lol... this thread seems to have gone so off topic, reading only the last page and the first thought was wow the coach resigned over the girlfriend and costumes?

    Parson is a great art school, probably the best in US so is good to know he has great people watch out for him (although I still think the Aranjuez costume screams Red China rather than Passionate Spanish. If the red is tinted slightly darker, it would make all the difference)

    Attractive wise, I though Patrick might look good with some facial hair to look more maturer and settled for that program, but I don't think the world ever had any male skater champion with facial hair?

    On the other hand David Wilson is hardly a surprising choice (He choreographed all Yuna ice shows Patrick took part) and he seems to be so fun around which makes him a great motivator to improve the artistry Patrick wanted to concentrate on. Personally, I thought Patrick really impressed me this year with his improvement in his expressions. He is not the most musical skater around but he has an internalized rhythm which is quite mesmerizing when done perfectly, that remind me of watching Taichi.

    Patrick's biggest weakness right now is probably complacency and boredom since he has achieved everything minus OGM, and actually having Daisuke and Hanyu so close at heels and beating him in TES these days might be the best thing to have happened to him these past year. Moving on from Lori is also a great decision, since I have always thought Lori designs for what suited to the skater to max out the scores, but hardly ever push them to exceed themselves beyond what is known already.
