Gold Medal Figure Skater Evan Lysacek's Routine Is for the Birds (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 6th 2010 4:21AM
Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek revealed the genesis of his winning routine: watching birds.

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Lysacek told DeGeneres that while figuring out how to skate to Igor Stravinsky's 'Firebird,' he was having difficulties relating to the bird movements. "All of a sudden theese birds fluttered on to a window sill," he told DeGeneres. As he watched them, he thought, "Oh my God, they're doing my routine." And he began to observe them and mimic the bird moves.

Evan Lysacek, Top Ten List, David LettermanOlympic gold medal winner Evan Lysacek presented the Top Ten List on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). The figure skater had plenty of thoughts that ran through his mind during his Olympic routine.

Our favorite? Number six: "A gold medal could help me achieve my real dream: 'Snoopy on Ice.'" We bet that's what most of those figure skaters hope to achieve one day. You know, now that they've got those crazy Olympics out of the way.

'Dancing with the Stars' Season Ten Odds

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 7:46PM
Evan LysacekThis season of 'Dancing with the Stars' has had some interesting choices for celebrities. Not all of the celebrities start on equal footing, some have musical backgrounds, some have physical prowess, and others have strong fan bases. Here's my odds for who will win from who has the worst to who has the best chances.

Buzz Aldrin
Claim to Fame - Walked on the moon
Professional Partner - Ashley Costa (formerly known as Ashley Del Grosso)
Professional's Best Finish - Third (Joey McIntyre, Season One)
Analysis - While I hope Buzz will last longer than a week, it seems unlikely that he can keep up with the younger competitors. The last time he was on television, during the pilot episode of 'Live for the Moment' he looked fit, but he's not a spring chicken. He will be a sentimental favorite, but clearly not the winner.
Odds of winning - 1000:1

New Cast for 'Dancing With the Stars' Revealed

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 8:00AM

Kate GosselinThe celebrity cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 10 has been announced. ABC wisely trimmed the cast down from 16 to 11. Hopefully this will get rid of the unnecessary double eliminations.

On paper, this season's cast feels like the celebrities have a higher caliber. They are at least closer to B-listers than just washed-up celebrities. This balances out the reality TV stars that stretch the definition of "Star." I have come to terms with the fact that Kate Gosselin will end up on my television in one way or another with the excuse that she's doing it for her kids. The full list after the jump.

Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek On Not Doing a Quad Jump (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:20AM
Larry King Live, Evan Lysacek, Winter OlympicsGeez, a guy wins a gold medal and all he gets is grief. Figure skater Evan Lysacek is getting six kinds of misery from Russian silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko for not doing a quad jump in his routine.

Lysacek has his reasons. On 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), he explained that he had a stress fracture in his left foot last year, which started bothering him while training the quad prior to the Olympics.

"I didn't want my Olympics to be the same experience as I had at the World Championships, where I was wondering if I'd get through it. So the solution was just to alleviate the pressure on the left foot and take just that one element out."

And we just have to mention that Lysacek looks like he jumped out of a British rock band from 1962, which is not at all a bad thing.
