Oh My Goddess! Lysacek Wins Championship!
Oy! I didn't think it would be possible, but USA has a Gold Medal in Men's Figure Skating at the World Figure Skating Championships in how many years? - well, I can't remember when - Brian Boitano 1989, or was it 1988?

But he pulled it off, darlings! Am I totally impressed - yes. 2010 Vancouver - here we come! Evan Lysacek wins men’s world figure skating championship By Scott M.
