    I'm just puzzled by his statements about the WTT. Wasn't it last year that he was saying that he didn't have a chance to earn much money and couldn't even afford a taxi ride? And didn't he just win a potload of money at this event? It seems he'd be excited that between this and his summer shows he can probably pay the bills.

    He won't have to worry about taxi fare when he moves to China. He'll be riding a bike.

Patrick CAN save himself..but he needs a new technical coach to do it. He skates like this and wins the Olympics....well, I would not want to be held responsible for what happens to him...in the press, of course. So, he'd best be sucking it up now, and figuring out how to handle it. He has no problem with a sub-par skate (IE Worlds this year). What he has a problem with is not WINNING with a sub-par skate.
    .
    He did win not every competition this year:

    • 6th Japan Open
    • 2nd Skate Canada
    • 1st Rostelecom Cup 2012 Moscow (which if I remember correctly, nobody had any issues with that win.)
    • 3rd Grand Prix Finial
    • 1st Short Program & 2nd Long Program Worlds (I do not believe that anyone had any issues with 1st in the short program)

    BTW - I saw his post Worlds interview live and he did seem like a guy who has a problem with winning with sub par performances.

    You know, I am not a Chan uber nor am I hater. I just wish that people would get their facts straight.

    Algonquin, there you go bringing facts into this conversation


    I suspect Chan stopped "complaining" about the time his #1 fan tkaug started this thread

    I imagine he's in Halifax having a grand ole time with Kurt and the gang getting ready for the show on Friday night.

    With any luck he will kick a puppy or something equally delightful to keep things churning here in the off season...

    I'm not his #1 fan, I'm rather a hater!
    My favorite skaters would never call a game "unimportant" where a Spanish skater won for the first time in Grand Prix.

    LOL! Believe me, nobody, including bmcg, would have mistaken you as Patrick's #1 fan.

    I guess it's not a surprise that went over the head of the OP.

    Why was Kathy Johnson in the center? Why was she there but no any other skater coaches?!

    That picture of Patrick sulking is after he skated his FS, that's why she is there. I've seen other photos of W&P with Camerlengo so I imagine all coaches who could be there were there.

    The skater will keep this year’s short program, Elegie in E Flat Minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff

    http://thechronicleherald.ca/artslif...-olympic-glory

    Will we have to watch him skate to the same music for 3 seasons? That would be sick! Now let's complain about that!
    What about he skates to silence? I've never recalled any music he has ever used. He can receive 9.00's for interpretation whatever music he skates to anyway so what's the difference?

    I think he'll retire after Sochi so no, he´ll only skate it for two seasons. But if that's too much you could always take a trip to your fridge when he's on.
