    Patrick has a gorgeous smile. He smiled one straight at me on CSOI Toronto.

    Thanks ali_dorate for starting the new thread. Here's to Patrick's SMILE. Love this pix of him when he was 16 .. the start of his medal journey.

    Sigh.. I can only look at his picture and pretend he smiles straight at me!

    Got a smile and nod from him at an airport once. Here's a toast to the new thread.

    We will have to toast him with non alcoholic wine as he cannot drink.

    How about this smile from when he was even younger?

    Me and Patrick Chan at City Ice. He is really nice.

    Seems this picture was uploaded to webstagram yesterday but I suppose none of us can tell how recent it is. Patrick's nose looks sun-burnt.

    He can't drink, I can't skate.... If I toast with champagne I'd say we're even.

    Chan gets this reaction to alcohol. Its common to many people of Chinese heritage. I think their whole face gets very flushed and hot.

    There are tooth marks all over my heart.

    Hmmm... I think it's very recent. His hair has been incredibly short for the last year or so. Burnt nose from sight-seeing in Taiwan and China? OK, I did some googling. I think the venue is City Ice Rink in Detroit. Couldn't find any pictures of this ice rink so I cannot be absolutely certain.

    Or it could just as well be this one: City Ice Pavilion Skating School - Long Island, NY.

    I think you are right, VarBar. You are a better 'detective' than I am!

    Patrick and his Canada Day picture.
    Can someone tell what are all those statues? And what is Patrick wearing over his eyes?

    I would say Patrick is wearing sunglasses over his eyes.

    I have no idea what or who those statues represent.
    Crazy about sports!

    The short answer is modern art. Unfortunately, I don't know the long answer. lol

    The picture might have been taken at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.

    KC is the hometown of Kathy Johnson, no?

    I thought it was sunnies (Ozzie slang for sunglasses) but it looked too bright blue?

    This too is my definition of modern art, VarBar.

    Now you truly deserves the title of 'great detective'. Thanks.
    I thought Kathy is mostly based in C.S. And yes, I googled and read her web bio again, and it did say she returns to her base in K.C. Now I hope Patrick has started serious training and is not travelling too much. Did he confirm that he will move to train in Detroit?

    Interesting (to me at least) that Patrick posted a photo with him and 4 pair of boots with blades- I am sure he is sponsored but what a great idea to always have back up. So many skaters have boot issues more should follow his lead!

    axel 12345, you were probably referring to this photo?

    https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.n...42450774_n.jpg

    Top skaters doing quads and other hard jumps in practice and in competition might need more than one pair of boots with blades per season, so I'm not surprised to see that Patrick's got four, just in case. Hmm, but who is using that crutch behind Patrick?

    First day back in the gym. Its nice to have some great equipment and a big space to move in. Thank you D1!

    What is D1, a gym room in the Detroit area? Nothing better comes to mind.

    Somewhere where honour is minus the U, but these days, that could even be in Canada. Oh, aren't I a curmudgeon!
