    Well............that just seems so weird. He was obviously doing fabulously well.

    I don't remember hearing much about Karen Chan before -- does she call the shots for Patrick? Is she a Skating Mom from Hell?

    Lori has been doing his choreo since he was a young boy under Mr Colson so I hope he doesnt change that. It will be good if he can use someone different for the SD - a different perspective would be nice.

    I did notice Kathy Johnson in the K&C at Worlds, things looked, well, a little stiff, not much communication amongst the three.

    I thought Christy Krall did that Dartfish, or whatever it is called, jump analyzation method, and that's why he left Don Laws, to get his quads. Well he got them. But he has to keep them.

    So, Kathy Johnson has another, different type of jump technique. Maybe the two methods did not mesh, and he was trying to drop one method for the other. He was awfully close to the boards in Nice, but I thought that was because it was a small rink.

    How many rinks are there in the area where he lives, is that CS, I'm going to guess that things would not be comfortable for Patrick to continue skating in the same rink as Christy Krall. I am obviously not Canadian if I have to ask what coaches are in Toronto? Or Kathy goes to Detroit or New York, what else was mentioned, how close are any to Toronto? And can she do the whole thing, with Lori still doing choreo?

    ^ Toronto is about 250 miles away from Detroit and about 450 miles away from New York.

    In one of the pre-worlds interviews, Patrick mentioned he felt his training was getting stagnant/boring and he hoped to split his time a little more between Toronto and Colorado.
    Perhaps that was a hint as to what was to come with the coaching change.
    I'm honest, just not always in a nice way

    Ding, Ding, Ding, that's it, betcha. That exhibition program was superb, could it be translated into a competitive program, whatever, Jeffrey could make magic with anything.

    Mr. Buttle, perhaps, based on the raves for P. Chan's Worlds exhibition?

    Does she??

    I am so surprised by this. Just goes to show you never know what is going on in a relationship! But I did actually notice things seemed a little... tense? Not quite normal? in the KnC at Worlds.

    Ah, I love Christy Krall. She's like a really, really scary cheerleader.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    I remember reading that article and that comment stuck in my head so I'm not surprised to see this thread.

    I'd like to see Patrick with a SP choreographed by Shae'Lynn and a FS by Buttle.
