    And NO ONE works harder than Evan.

    That goes without saying! But something like what I wrote would not be unprecedented, either.

    I didn't mind Evan for most of his career. It was only when he was being shoved at us like the greatest, most artistic, hardest working person on the planet that I became annoyed. In his place, I'd be happy that everything aligned for me to win gold and find something else to do.

    Does that mean he'll flail his arms faster than before, and the grabbing at himself

    I can't say I'm particularly excited about this comeback.
    Not at all, not surprised either.

    Just like with Johnny, I'll believe it when I actually see it. If Skate America comes around and Evan gets on the ice, then I'll believe it.

    *shrugs*

    As long as they get marked to the same standard as everyone else at Nationals.

    How many Spanish/Latin programs has Evan had in his career? If he was good in it, I'd be fine with it. But I guess that the puppet show is back!

    you mean this?
    "He's the most passionate and interpretive skater probably in the world right now," says his coach, famed Frank Carroll.

    You don't have to believe what Frank Carroll says.

    Nice. Can't wait to see Evan's versions. Who's the choreographer/s? Lori?

    O.K, here are the other pieces of the album Poeta, the correct ones supposedly.

    Plushenko's PCS from Euros indicate that judges picked him as the favourite from Europe to challenge Chan and Takahashi. If Plushenko is still as consistent with his jumps as he always was and imropve his choreography and transitions he can very well challenge for the bronze. He is the king when it comes to jumps and I would bet my money that he will land them all despite his age. Dai and Yuzuru both occasionally have troubles with jumps. On the other, marks Dai got at WTT indicate that judges might have taken into consideration all complaints about Chan being completely unbeatable even when he makes mistakes and they will finally let someone else rival him for the top spot. I hope that this coming season Dai will be given some chances to win against Chan.

    I saw the Today Show this morning, too. Evan said that Vera was working on his new suits. He also said his programs were ready and his music was ready. He looked great and was really excited about competing starting in October.

    Good to have you back, Evan!

    If anyone is going to challenge the idea that a quad is necessary it is him! All the medalists at 2012 worlds tried it in the SP and LP so he will be an aggressive challenger to that. He will say that he has everything! That the quads being done are taking away from all the others artistry.

    I just noticed he was listed on the competitors on the SA website. I should have checked here first.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    It's funny, but my feelings for Evan have dulled somewhat. I would never have called myself an uber but I was always there to cheer him on during the '07 - '10 quadrennial and defend him and his Olympic title against the Haters. I recognized and really respected him as the best trained and least headcase-y of the top US men and loved him for it

    Now, for me, he really needs to put up if he truly is going for it, or risk losing face. No excuses about contract problems. The world of men's skating has changed dramatically since Vancouver: The quad is valued and to be in that elite set of men these days, you have to do it, preferably more than once. I can't say that I'll be a fan of his at all if he shows up with arm-flinging, choreographed angst and 2 3x's. It just won't cut it anymore. Now, if he is fine with a top 10 finish doing that, fine (Although I can't see the USFSA being fine with that!). But, no excuses or complaints about it.

    I am encouraged by his music choices posted up-thread. That's a start and might show a more lyrical side to him. I also hope that he learned some things about pizzazz doing all those shows and DWTS, learned something about his inner self that will come across a little more genuinely when he skates. FC is a good coach, but he has a habit of doing the same old same old year after year. Evan needs to be different now, technically and artistically, to be a big threat (again, if he's competing to win)

    Oh, and Nationals with 2 eligible spots, and all these men figuring into the mix, is going to be nuts!

    Just my .02

    I'm looking forward to comparing his Poeta to Lambiel's masterpiece. Seriously.

    Good luck to Evan. It's a gutsy choice for him to come back, because he knows that every competition that he doesn't win will be scrutinized.

    (I still believe it when I see it though )
