Your program just wasn't as good.
Yes, you are a power house skater and that's great. It's fun to watch your jumps. And quads? Yeah, the risk! the excitement! I'm all for it.
But the idea that power should trump grace and other technicalities just because it's more powerful...let's just turn all sports into Rugby, please. The finesse is always part of the game. Especially in figure skating. You need both.
Also, your program last night was a little messy and slightly unbalanced. You landed the jumps. You were lucky. Also the pandering to the judges (hip wiggle wiggle kiss)? Cute. But no cigar.
Evan landed his jumps in spectacular and graceful fashion and had a beautiful program. And if you think it's a bunch of men keeping the sport alive by waiting anxiously before the television screen to see you amp it up, let me tell you my husband was asleep and I was the one watching. Someone said something like "People watch skating because they like to watch warriors." That someone is drinking kool-aid.
I want both. And last night Evan Lysacek was better, and better to watch.
That's all. Be a good sport about winning the silver. I know you say you like to have enemies and to be considered the bad guy, but you'll be happier if you learn a little bit about being not just powerful, but graceful. On the ice and in defeat.
