    Watching those CTV interviews, hearing how badly he wants this one, and then contrasting that with the predictions I'm reading that place him silver, bronze, or worse.....makes me a bit nervous for him too. I hope he surprises people. I wish I could will it! I am glad we are meeting, I am going to need moral support prior to the short LOL.

    Me too - Itry not to think of it.
    You have to remember that Yags was also retooling before the Olys and see what happened when he got there and keep the faith.

    He also wants it for all of canada!

    Perhaps but he won't get there with a dance teacher as his coach. He needs a real skating coach who can see what's going on with his jumps and how to fix them. He can't do it on his own and right now he is. Christy Krall had him on a schedule that worked and now he doesn't have that.

    Kevin Reynolds' current jump content difficulty wise is superior to Aaron's.

So, yes, I agree with you, if both skate clean Kevin still wins for now.

    Could Patrick raising his hands over his head before the takeoff on the 3Lutz/3T combination (beauty) be one of the changes Jeffrey made to his SP choreography?

    In the first photo, it's a beautiful "white" rose between two "dark" flowers (take your choice of flower type because everything I came up kind of smacked of something I didn't mean ha).
    The second photo looks like Patrick is getting pointers on how to dance. Kaitlyn is definitely a prettier partner for Andrew.
    Crazy about sports!

    Go Patrick,others may have given up on you and yeah it has been a struggle to stay motivated but I still BELIEVE you can repeat as champion, esp if your 3axels are back in and all your jumps, spins, footwork seq etc are working properly, then not even Fernandez with his 3 quads, or the Asian wave could catch you then...

    Well, here we are, all checked into the "Bates" motel in London.........fridge, phone, lights didn't work until we got management to fix everything. Glass shelf in bath fell in the middle of the night, scaring the living daylights out of us...........at least it's clean with no bedbugs. This comes from booking late. Main thing is we are here and looking forward to our week. Go Patrick!!!!! (and V&M ) and all the other Canuck skaters.

    Hi everyone. For my first post, I thought I'd wish all Patrick fans good wishes, steady nerves and urge all to have faith in his abilities. I thought his skating at Canadians was impressive, but it's just the FP choreography that's letting him down a bit - it seemed lacking in some way but that could just be my expectations after Nichol's programs. However, I still think he has the edge in the judges' minds and Patrick's always been able to step up when it counts at worlds. I still think it's his trophy to lose and I don't believe he'll let us down.

    Oh, she definitely is but how about a Kaitlyn/Patrick pairing? Because I like Patrick's posture and lines better than Andrew's in that photo. lol

    PChiddy looks gorgeously presentable in this picture here, perhaps he should wear suit and tie more often.

    That's a great picture. I am heading down to see the unveiling of the light show at 9 pm, and plan to be at the first men's practice bright and early tomorrow morning. I have everything crossed that Patrick will skate well this week.

    Sorry I wasn't reporting yesterday from practice, but I forgot to charge my phone before leaving home and it died. I'm sure you've already read that Patrick didn't show up for the first practice in the alternate arena, but he came to the second one in the main rink, and he did not put a foot wrong. He skated the short cleanly, all the way through, and got a standing ovation from most of the crowd. He was smiling and happy and waving. His quads and triple axles look amazing. I don't believe I saw him miss one jump the whole practice. I am heading back down soon for dance and then men again. I am sick, unfortunately, but I am trying not to miss too many practices (definitely not mens!). I hope I am feeling better for the actual competition days.

    I watched Patrick's practise yesterday and he looked pretty good to me. I'm thinking he'll be just fine. He did a runthrough of his short and looked really great. fingers x'd. He did some quads and got a fine reception from the mostly Canadian audience of course. I didn't stay to watch the Japanese guys.

    Btw, My dh and I are in 314.........far from ice but with good view.......our seats are mostly in E and G row (moving around a bit). Going to the practice rink today to watch pairs, dance.
