    I remember years ago Kurt saying that Patrick can skate really badly on the warm up but then nail it down in Competion so we have to just hope that is the case here as well.
    Nice pic but our boy looks a little pale.

    I wonder if both reports were from the same practice session?

    Thanks VarBar for the pictures. Oh dear ... looks like they got Dornbush mixed up with Patrick. I thought they look quite different!
    Yeah, good luck Patrick.

    My highlights in Patrick's skate of today:

    1. He got his 3A back and it was gorgeously executed.
    2. He didn't fall.

    Patrick would have scored higher, I guess, if he had left the 4T a solo jump and gone for the jump combination in the second half of the program. He looked so nervous when he took his starting position that I thought he would totally bomb but he didn't. Go, Patrick.

    he said during the press conference that he didn't know doing a single in a combo jump would get you -3 so that's never going to happen again I'm sure.

    Good rebound for PChiddy!

    Yes, I'm surprised he did that, but still........what an improvement. This program is developing beautifully. Good luck to him in the LP.

    Gorgeous 3a from Chan today. Wish he could do that every time out.

    Love this program by Buttle.

    ^^^ ITA the 3A was wonderful with a gorgeous running edge to boot.

    I also love this program by Buttle, but it's the execution by Patrick that takes it to another level.

    Chan's interview after the SP.

    http://www.goldenskate.com/2012/11/c...new-in-moscow/

    “I have chosen David Wilson to choreograph my long program, because I worked with him in shows before and we had great energy,” he continued. “It is very important to have great rapport with your choreographer.”
    “As for Jeff, I have always admired him,” said Chan. “Even when I was competing against him, when I won the Canadians and he won the Worlds, I admired him. Musically, he is much better than me. Much better than everyone else, in fact, even Olympic champions. He is able to hear every note in the music and to interpret it. He has great taste too, so I enjoyed working with him a lot.”

    I like this part especially...about Jeff & Wilson..
    The shows which Chan works with Wilson are maybe Yuna's show right?
    As for Jeff,Chan is so right...and That's why I admir and love Jeff as a skater.

    Definitely worth staying up till 3.00am and watching Patrick skated a clean program (though not perfect and at its best yet).

    I thought he looked more confident than in Skate Canada, VarBar. But as always, watching Patrick is kind of nerve wrecking, and I too am learning how to deal with it.

    leaa, Wilson comes across as a wonderful and warm person in the past interviews I watched of him, and both Patrick and Wilson worked together in many Yuna shows. Yes, Patrick has always admired Buttle. He has mentioned this a few times in interviews. He even got himself into trouble with his usual straight talking when he defended Buttle's winning of the 2008 Worlds, and got into the bad books of some fans of the skater Patrick had an exchange with.

    Yes, and he was only about 16 or 17 then..........and it hasn't let up for some. I like that he gives credit where credit is due to Jeff and David, but he also is bringing their choreo to life.........so friggin difficult is the stuff he's been given to do. Good luck tomorrow Patrick............Sending good vibes!!!!

    Actually I didn't know that either. But I am not a skater
    Anyway It's a relief that's never going to happen again.

    I was relieved Chan did well in SP.
    Still I am a little nervous about FS.
    But One thing for sure is he is a real fighter.
    So sending good vibes too~

    My highlights:

    1. 4T/3T and 4T - calm, confident, secure, wonderful flow out of these two jump passes, just amazing quality on both, perfection in jumping.
    2. He didn't fall.

    But shouldn't he have done the second 2A in combination for that jump to count?

    Congrats to Patrick on earning his spot in the Grand Prix Final in such a totally convincing way.

    I couldn't watch his performances live but so happy that he finally delivered two great skates in Russia! hope this is a turning point for him cannot wait for the vid!

    what makes me happier is that he finally got the SS mark he deserves.

    Sooo happy. Never mind my panda eyes. I am going to have sweet dreams tonight.
    Yes, VarBar, our young man didn't fall and he won convincingly though we know there will still be nitpicking. Who cares!
    Let's celebrate ...
