    Patrick just ran through short program. Doubled the quad and axel but both may have been intentional. Lutz looked perfect. The rest was beautiful and not at all shaky.

    Love the new shirt!

    ETA: texts from friends in the arena say he has landed some clean quads and one triple axel with hand down so far in the practice.

    No one can beat this program if skated cleanly. Just sublime quality of movement and quality of skating, you would say Patrick floats over the ice.

    But I don't underatand why he keeps finishing the last spin behind the music. It happened to him at more than one competition last season too.

    Just watched the men practice and thought you'd all be pleased to hear that Michael Slipchuk was at the boards right along side Kathy Johnson, giving Patrick instructions - on the triple axel I think.

    Thanks everyone for the update. Just woke up in time to watch Patrick's LP run through.

    blueglass, were you at the rink?

    VarBar, I think Patrick was a little behind the music from near the beginning.

    luckiest1, that new shirt is nice. Didn't look like a practice wear.

    No, wish I was. I tuned in late to the streaming of the men's practice and saw them after the individual practice sessions. Slipchuk and Patrick were easy to see.

    Hmm, no, I don't think he was, spiky.

    Was there a problem with jumps....did he do any quads? I didn't see any in the run thru and missed the 1st practise.

    I saw a few clean quads and quad/triples in yesterday's second practice (streaming). And I saw him working with Slipchuk too.

    Patrick completed the second quad in his LP run through (after he tripped and fell, of course ). He landed a few quads throughout practice. His quads are solid. His 3A was less secure.

    Usually I don't like it when a skater uses their old program, but I love Elegy and this is a great program. I could listen/watch all day and not get tired.

    Not his best, but certainly better than last year I think. He didn't have enough speed going into the quad....smart move to do the 3/3 instead. Skating skills are sublime as usual. Here's hoping he has a great skate tomorrow with that new program.

    Too bad about the quad, other than that it's such a gorgeous programme. And I love the new costume, so much better than last year's.

    Here's hoping for a great skate tomorrow.
