    That said, it was really wonderful meeting and chatting with him, and he is just about the sweetest and most adorable person ever. His joy is quite infectious, and he seemed just happy to be competing (lovely to see amongst all the tense competitors). Couldn't be happier that he medaled at TEB and looking forward to all that his future holds.
    Couldn't agree more. We also met him at Skate America and he just seemed like he really appreciated everything that was happening and especially the support of the fans. I really hope he does well and will be rooting for him in Boston.

    Jason's interviews are always great, but can anyone explain what tables he's talking about in the Art on Ice one?

    AOI: you turned senior this year. Big differences for you to approach the competition?
    Jason Brown: I was a Junior for the past three years and there are some similarities. International travels are similar, how the events are run is pretty similar, you know , take one practice on the day, the same table for many, but the biggest difference is like the people you compete against are much older and people that you have admired for so many years, it’s such a huge venue, the crowds are bigger, there’s more media… It’s a different table height. A different energy.

    I think they're metaphorical tables. He's now eating at the big kids' table.

    In my fantasy world, Brown and Rippon go to Socchi.

    I think it is a possibility. And the US won't necessarily send two men with quads. What they will do, we can bet on it, (even if it frustrates me ) is that Number 1 and 2 from Nationals will be send without taking into account any other placements from the whole season.
    Therefore, Jason has a huge chance. He may not be the favourite but the chance is there.

    Dornbush - I would have believed in a couple of seasons ago...It might still happen if the stars align but I think he needs to find his mojo again and then try again next season.

    If he stays healthy, I think his quad (like the axel) will come in time.

    However, one thing I would like to see Jason work on ASAP is the centering of his spins.

    I noticed almost every spin he did at TEB had mild to excessive traveling on it, which really takes away from the beautiful positions he hits in them.

    His spins are too good and unique to let some traveling keep him from getting +3 GOE on almost every spin across the panel. This should be an outright point-getter, but because of noticeable traveling, he's getting tons of 1s (even some 0s), when he shouldn't be getting anything less than 2s IMO.

    And this is something I think he could easily nip in the bud with a little selective training just for this issue.

    Hegwig you are in good company. After TEB I asked a former Champion who he thought would be the best combination for Sochi he said that Rippon and Brown would be his pick, not only for the big scores they both are pulling but the excitement they generate too. Both of these guys are well liked by other skaters and make great ambassadors for the sport. He said Adam has a huge international fan base and he was sure Brown's would surely explode after TEB. They might be the shot in the arm the sport needs. Maybe it is time for USFS to get real and admit it is not wise to promote men's figure skating as a rough and tough artistic hockey. It isn't. There is nothing un-manly about super athletic men creating great lines and jumping a meter off the ground-- just ask Nureyev or Baryshnikov

    By the same token, there's NOTHING WRONG with skaters who skate a bit more hockey-like either. Every skater has their own individual style, which should be embraced, not one denigrated over the other.

    It is ironic how Jason has skated like the awesome journey as it should be, where Joshua has had certain pressures on him that he seems overwhelmed to overcome.
    This latest injury seems predictable. Too much pressure.

    I need to go brush my teeth before I get cavities after watching that! He is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o sweet!

    I loved his really neat side-step of the "who would you be proudest to beat?" question

    May he never lose his enthusiasm and joy!
