If Only…

… he could have stayed. Canadian Nationals is just around the corner but everyone knows that it’s one national competition that’s not really worth watching seeing that it’s a one-pony race. Your Canadian champions – barring injury or major freak accident – will be Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Patrick Chan, Cynthia Phaneuf and Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch. I wish that we could cross off Chan’s name from that list and put Jeff instead. (I wouldn’t mind giving Akiko Suzuki Canadian citizenship just so she can be at the top of the Canadian ladies podium either…) Jeff has the right qualities for a person that has the potential to be on the top of the World/Olympic podium: modesty, a good sense of humour, sportsmanship (so he knows that trash-talking opponents does you no good – Chan and Joubert take note!) and beautiful, beautiful technique. I found this recently and it just melts in your mouth…

Enjoy~
