I wanted to create a fantasy version of Patrick’s “Hallelujah” LP if it had been performed well. Here’s the mashup:

For music I chose Brooklyn Duo’s instrumental version of Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah”. I hope you all enjoy it!

Patrick has withdrawn from the NHK Trophy and will not be attending the Grand Prix Final this year (a big loss to his Japanese fans). But that does not mean his fans (both professional and casual) are not actively talking about him or preparing to see him the next time he competes. From interviews to music videos to buying tickets, they are committed to supporting him!

 

November 30: Patrick to be in Quebec / A Break from Marina?

On this last day of the month (and therefore the last update to this month-long post) came little tidbits of updates about Patrick for us, the news-starved fans! Hat tip to the eagle-eyed fans who brought some of these to my attention!

He must decide everything for himself… his skating is unique, unforgettable, no one can compare with him.

Skate Canada Challenge, November 29-December 3, 2017

This was the only announcement that Patrick would be in Quebec this weekend that I could find. Skate Canada’s event webpage does not mention the athlete ambassadors.

Patrick Will Be at Nationals and the Olympics

According to PJ Kwong, Patrick intends to compete at both events:

Patrick’s free program was a struggle, but he bravely and beautifully fought his tiredness to the end. Even though fans were shocked that he did not make the podium, he received a bundle of support and stuffed animals, too! The next day, I am proud that he skated a fun and happy EX program, “Oh, What a Night!”

 

November 3: NHK Trophy Withdrawal

Nope! Patrick will not be going to Japan after all!

 

October 30: NHK Trophy Confirmation–See Update Above

At first, Patrick confirmed that he would be in Japan, but see the update above.

British Eurosport commentary: (link)

Commentator: 24 hours after the one of the low moments in his career when he failed to get on the podium in this mens’ event here in Skate Canada, he could come out and perform like that… sense of professionalism, sense of responsibility, call it what you will, but it was very impressive and… he has been throughout his career.

And so SCI 2017 has begun! Patrick missed his flight and lost his luggage, but he spoke about looking forward to life after competitive skating and said to his fans, “thank you for liking me for who I am, not just for my skating.” But after a “crazy and not comfortable week”, he did well in the short program, scoring 94.43 and taking second!

Just days until we see Patrick on the ice again! I can’t wait! My prediction based on last year: He will wear one new costume and one old one. We shall see. Let’s start the countdown, shall we?

Patrick Chan News Updates, October 4-14, 2017

Is Patrick is still happily situated in British Columbia, breaking in his skates? Perhaps one of his longtime dreams to move to Vancouver is finally being realized. Which coach went with him? Or is he training by himself until he returns to Michigan?

During the past week I had anticipated more media of Patrick making various appearances, but it seems he has disappeared from the limelight for now. Not too worry, of course, since Skate Canada International is in less than two weeks!

 

October 14: Another (Old) Photo from the Agrodome

This photo was actually taken at the Agrodome back on September 28, but it was somehow missed by Instagram’s tagging system and I found it a different way. Maybe Patrick is still skating there – who knows?

Got the honor of skating with Patrick Chan the other day. #figureskating #yvr #fangirl @pchan31
