Hey! Nice to meet you all (online anyway)! :)
Long story short: I became an Evan fan a few months before 2009 Worlds. Up until then I had only paid attention the ladies skating (I'm 20 now, and I was a young girl in the 1990's when Michelle Kwan was at the real height of her career -- she inspired me to want to take skating lessons, actually, and I did. I haven't taken any sort of formal lessons since I was about fourteen or fifteen with the coach I had at the time, but I still go skating "for fun" at the rink as often as possible.) But after Torino, I felt that American ladies skating had lost a lot of talent when Michelle Kwan and Sasha Cohen stopped skating soon after, so my interest in watching the sport faded somewhat. A year or two after that, I watched more skating and my interest focused to the men. There I discovered the awesome talent that is Johnny Weir and Evan Lysacek, but I preferred Evan's style of skating and he quickly became my favorite. :D It's been a blast watching him throughout the past couple of years, and meeting all sorts of awesome people through skating events and websites.

Thanks for sharing elle_! I think there was a lull in skating after Michelle and Sasha retired. Though I've always preferred the men, those two ladies really overshadowed the men's fielf, imo, of their day.
So happy you found Evan - he's one in a million!! :thumbup:

They were definitely the main attention for a while, I agree.
He sure is! :B
