    Does anyone have any updates on Evan? Any realistic chance we'll see him at Nationals? His web site has not been updated in some time.

    Sorry if this has been dicussed in other threads.

    Hopefully we will hear something soon. Lysacek was supposed to be off the ice for six weeks. If his rehab is going well, he should return to 'on ice' training this week.

    His Short Program will be this, and his Free Skate will be Waiting for Godot. :sekret:

    Verner says Evan won't be at Nationals, Brezina says Evan will. Thus lies a Czech. :scream:

    No skating update, but Evan is attending the Golden Globe awards tonight in Los Angeles. Yeah, IDK.

    ^^ :lol: Awkward yet funny. "...blades and Russian vodka." I like how Evan Lysacek said, "No, we're just sticking together because we're intimidated by this crowd," when Billy B asked if Missy Franklin and he are dating. ;) Missy was towering over both Billy and Evan, although perhaps she's as tall as Evan without heels.

    Evan said he's training hard, so I guess he's still planning to show up at Nationals.

    He didn't mention Nationals, which is why I posted the video in this thread and not in the general US Men's news thread.

    I know he certainly enjoyed his weekend at GG events, not to mention the actual awards ceremony. He mentioned he spent most of either Friday or Saturday night talking skating w/Spielberg on Twitter.

    Nice to see Evan having fun. He has a very droll sense of humor.

    Well, so, it seems many feel even though Evan is "training away," that's no guarantee he's planning to compete at Nationals, at least not this year. Could be he would not be showing up at awards shows if he was going to be at Nationals next week. However, it's strange he hasn't officially withdrawn yet. But I guess there's still time. ;)


    I can see it now. Evan Lysacek as Lincoln on iceskates, choreographed and directed by Steven Spielberg, costume by Vera Wang of course. :lol:

    Missy is 6'1" Evan 6'2"

    If he knows he is going to withdraw, why is he waiting so long?

    What is the big draw for nationals this year? Besides me.:rofl:


    Even if he skates at Nationals and wins, he can't skate at Worlds , can he?

    ^^ Yes, of course, ALL BLACK Vera Wang Lincoln-style suitcoat with pants and top hat (hats are so de rigueur in skating these days ;)). But probably minus the awkward DDL-Lincoln broken gait.

    I ~think they'd have to send him to another international comp between now and then to get the minimum tech score. I don't think he'd outright win, but he'd have a decent chance at the podium. Then again, who knows. We haven't see him skate competitively since Vancouver. He would windmill arms himself into the boards for all we know.

    Who could beat him at Nationals? I believe he would make up in PC's what he would lose in not having a quad. His programs of four years ago, could take Nationals this year. I've never seen Evan ill-prepared, so if he skates in Omaha, he'll probably win.

    Even in his peak years when he won Worlds and Olympics he lost Nationals to Abbott, so why on earth would one be safe to think he wins now if he skates, older, no longer in his prime, having been out of competition for years, and been injured most of the year. Anyway I doubt he will even skate at Nationals so the answer will probably remain unknown.

    I have to insert my opinion here. This situation with Evan...will he or won't he be at Nationals...it reminds of when Kwan was supposed to be at Skate America around 2004 and 2005 (I think I have the dates right, Pittsburgh for sure and perhaps even Atlantic City) and people bought tickets thinking she was going to be there and days before the event, it was announced she wouldn't be there. Everyone was disappointed but we figured USFSA wanted to keep her name on the roster for as long as possible for advertising and ticket sales. We later talked to someone pretty much on the inside of things, and confirmed we pretty much had it right. Obviously we had no first hand 100% knowledge and we have no sure knowledge about Evan either, but for sure, the USFSA benefits if a popular skater's remains on the roster and shown in photographs. I really hope he competes, but I won't be a bit surprised if his withdrawal is announced soon.
