If you listen to the words, a smile would seem inappropriate. That's the hard thing about using this song with lyrics: striking the balance between the upbeat rhythm and the story behind the lyrics."Old Mikey is back" - I'd say so! Brilliant - not quite perfect yet but a wonderful showcase for all he can do. If only he can add a smile here and there to make it fun, like the song. Welcome back, Patrick!
Really? Given the 2A, I assumed he was coachless. Anyway, his skating is still nice to watch.

I never heard the song and couldn't hear most of the lyrics, but I just looked them up. You're right! That is one creepy song. The music seemed so cheery! But I'm sure I will hear it differently now. Still, I think some sort of facial expression is called for, and a smile (that could be read as callous) is probably easiest.
I suppose he would not since he does not have a coach.

As expected, Patrick did not compete today even though he was listed in the FS starting order.
3A is around the 3 min. 45 second mark of this video of the 6-minute warmup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1ayTupn5u0He did the 3A in the warmup, and this is his first competition in over a year.
Well it's a gorgeous program......a few technical problems today, no combo but he stayed on his feet and it's got a lot of potential. I'll take 84 for that, has the potential to be mid nineties for sure!
