What I like about Ryan

January 17, 2010

  • First, you know… what’s not to like.  I remember when I was watching the exhibition after the 2007 Nationals when he got silver.  I happened to be at home in Gulf Breeze when my sister and her friend came in.  I was gushing about how he had come from behind.  There he was and they were as won over as me.

    The incomparable Ryan Bradley

  • He skated to Baroque chamber music and wore a period costume complete with puffy shirt… and it was funny.
  • He’s the king of the quad, landing two to beat both Lysacek and Weir in the Free Skate.
  • His crazy hair.
  • He is such a performer.  It’s always a piece of theater… no one can win a crowd like Ryan… except maybe Philippe Candeloro.
  • He’s 3 time collegiate champion.  The rest of them don’t bother with the school thing.
  • He’s dangerous… only needed a few more points that he lost in the short program to get on the Olympic team.  After the excellent Free… I was so torn about cheering for Johnny Weir.  Can’t we have four spots?
  • All that’s next… alternate on the Olympic team, exhibitions, pro shows, tours.  Can’t wait.
