The Orangeman Winneth

The Orangeman Winneth

Last night, Evan Lysacek became the first U.S. man to win the Olympic gold medal since Brian Boitano in 1988 upsetting defending champion Dorothy Hamill Yevgeny Plushenko. If anyone cares, I’m not a fan of Lysacek or Plushenko, and was hoping for a Patrick Chan-Stephane Lambiel-Johnny Weir (who was underscored last night, in my opinion) dominance, even if that was very improbable. Anyway, you can watch Lysacek’s winning performance here. Its good and everything, I just wish I wasn’t so distracted by his spray-on tan.

I’m with you. I wasn’t too impressed by Evan, but he did skate the best last night and deserved to win. I was hoping for a Lambiel-Chan-Abbott podium myself.
