  1. Chan, by a mile

  2. I pray that first comment was sarcastic.

    In 1986, Brian B. had "the facts but not the phosphorescence", as Uncle Dick used to say. Technically brilliant but not much style. Smartest thing he ever did was to go to Sandra Bezic. I've thought several times this season that Paddy Chan is like Boitano before Bezic.

  4. The best comment of all is by aunt joyce, kudos for leaving the most over rated least deserving olympian scott hamilton off the list.

  5. AJ totally did that on purpose LMAO

  6. Yeah but skipping Scott prevented him from going back further and including John Curry unfortunately.

  7. I wish you put in Rudy Galindo 1996!
    He won the US Nationals that year, and got 3rd in the World...
    But his Swan Lake LP is one of my all-time favorites!
