  1. I stand corrected. You are right. You can drop the “O” and just say “DEKO” for forehead. (I asked my wife who is Japanese. Me, I’m a third-generation Japanese-Canadian who just learned something new.)
  2. I understand that the Japanese word for “forehead” is “ODEKO”, so shouldn’t “forehead out” be “ODEKODASHI”? Edit: I stand corrected. “Forehead” is “ODEKO”, but the “O” may be dropped to become simply “DEKO”.
  3. Although it's not comparable to the Olympics, I have put my experiences at two Canadian National Judo Championships as well as my thoughts regarding the above under the following spoiler for those who might be interested.
  4. Whoever they are, they are probably very athletic…
  5. When in Japan do as the Japanese do… Take the mattress off the bed and put it on the solid floor and you have a makeshift futon…
  6. [NEWS] I have two new pictures of Ghislain Briand that were taken on his last Friday in Switzerland, July 2 which he would like to share on social media. He returned from Switzerland 10 days ago. He was there for five weeks coaching jumping at Stephane Lambiel’s school. As you may have heard, Barrie, Ontario, was hit by a devastating tornado yesterday. Ghislain and his family are safe and were not affected by the tornado. He has shed 62 pounds (28 kg) “so far”. When I saw the first picture with Stephane Lambiel and company, I did not realize th
  7. Kyodo News – In Photos: Yuzuru Hanyu in DOI https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2021/07/ec3229a1edb5-in-photos-yuzuru-hanyu-in-ice-show.html
  8. Speaking of squeaking and cheering for Yuzu, if you have not seen this already, you have to watch our @Danibellerika's video of her epic reaction to Yuzu winning his second consecutive gold medal at the PyeongChang Olympics. A word of advice: You might want to turn your volume down before playing this video.
  9. Welcome to the planet! Feel free to ask all the questions you want. I am sure that someone will have the answer. Enjoy!
  10. Yuzu knows the mayor of Sendai and the governor of Miyagi Prefecture (not to mention the Imperial family and the former Prime Minister of Japan). He is the tourism ambassador for Sendai and the most famous athlete in Japan. I’m sure they will figure something out. In addition, the JSF is supposed to be arranging for vaccinations for its skaters. In either case, I don’t think he will be standing in line. Edit: I am just glad to hear that he should be receiving his vaccinations soon.
  11. There will be no comparison. Only Yuzu has the power to draw huge audiences. I’m sure that I am a typical Yuzu fan in that I will travel 3361 km from Vancouver to Toronto in order to watch Yuzu compete 2.5 minutes in the short program and 4 minutes in the free. Of course, the costume reveal at ACI and his practices are worth it just by themselves. My wife and I have been to three ACIs in 2017, 2018 and 2019. We would not do that for any other skater. I will travel across Canada to catch a glimpse of Yuzu, but I will not be attending SCI this year although I live in Metr
  12. I was re-watching the Dance Battle video when I ran across this upbeat video that I had not seen before where the creator edited clips of Yuzu dancing and put them together to Ricky Martin’s Livin' La Vida Loca. Not quite Blinding Lights, but entertaining nonetheless.
  13. Welcome to posting and de-lurking! I see that you have been with us since January. Have fun!
