  1. I bought my ticket today, when they open the sale a little after 10:00 am. I choose to buy by phone, so I can talk to the lady on the phone and ask her for the best seat available in Level P3 or P4. She did offer me Section 118 Row F in the P3 price , or in the same Section 118 in Row T for the P4 price. Finally, I took the P4 Level, in Row T. I hope it is a good decision, less expensive anyway. Even if the price is very unfriendly for the fans, World 2020 is in my hometown, about 30 minutes by bus from my home. So I will save money for hotel and travel. I can not miss the opportunity to watch Yuzuru live in competitions again.
  2. OMG Yuzuru is present in my bedroom too, not in pictures on the wall, but in books, magazines, in many clear Lotte files sent to me by my good Japanese friend. I don't know if he will feel more assured, or less traumatized, knowing that he is also loved by many male and females of the ages of his parents or grandparents, like you and me. When my daughter went to visit Japan, she knew what I want as presents. She asked her Japanese friend where to buy books and magazines of Yuzuru and bring me his books and magazines. I remember when I went to GPF in Marseille, I have met many ladies with theirs daughters who are also fans of Yuzuru . Last year at Autumn Classics in Oakville, I went to eat in a restaurant with some ladies, including a Japanese ladie from Japan. She made us all laughing when she told us stories how her daughter aged 40 years old reacted. Because she always watches TV or videos of Yuzuru , so her daughter said : Oh mamie, you watch Yuzuru again!
  3. That what I would do too. I live in Montreal, about 30 minutes by bus or by metro from home to Centre Bell in downtown. I can not miss the opportunity to watch Yuzuru live in competitions. Even if I don't know what I will have to do in March 2020. I will buy the all event ticket in P3 or in P4 level. They are good seats enough for me. They are still in Lower Level, or lower bowl, right? I just want to be in the same building when Yuzuru is competing.
  4. Me too, I will wait until GP assignments before buying tickets for Skate Canada International in Kelowna, B.C. Kelowna is in BC, but quite far from Vancouver, so maybe I can't get direct flights from Montreal. For me ACI in Oakville, Ont is easier to go, direct flight to Toronto only takes less than 1 hour from Montreal. Last year I bought the tickets for SC Int in Montreal before the announcement of GP assignment. So I got Shoma instead of Yuzuru. Not that I don't like Shoma. But he is not Yuzu. And I go to competitions only for Yuzu. For me, it was not a happy experience. I found 3 or 4 days were very long days. I missed about haft the time during the competitions. For World 2020 which il will be in Montreal, my hometown, I hope Yuzuru will be there. I can not miss the opportunity to see him live in competitions in my hometown, so I have to buy tickets. I wished I can buy only tickets for singles men and ladies. All-events tickets for 7 days watching skating is too much time spent in the arena. So I am not ready to buy tickets yet at the beginning of June.
  5. Are you sure it is an old blue bathrobe ? I first thought it was kind of long sweater or something like that. If it is an old blue bathrobe, he is the only one who could look good in an old blue bathrobe over T-shirt and jeans. The least I can say is his taste for clothing is not very expensive. Or he does not care very much for fashion.
  6. Sorry I am an older fan. Me too, I am one of those rowdy aunties. I yelled very loud when I see Yuzuru on the ice, in contrary to my usual self very quiet and calm. Yuzuru makes us a complete person other than our usual self. For the prices of all-event tickets of Montreal comparing to other recent Worlds, I remember the all-event ticket at World in Boston 2016 costed me about 1000$US, with exchange rate from dollars US$ To dollars Canadian$ = it means it costed me in dollars Canadian 1600$. I bought the package tickets and hotel with Dash Tour. I got a seat at Level Balcony 1 or 2, very high up to the ceiling. I also went to World in Helsinki in 2017, I bought the package all-event ticket plus hotel with a Finnish tour. Only the ticket costed me around 1000 €. I got a very good seat in the lower level, not near the ice, but in the row maybe 10 to 15. If you take into account the exchange rate of Euros versus Canadian dollars, it is about the same as the exchange rate of USdollars versus Canadian dollars. So the ticket of Helsinki costed me also 1600$ dollars Canadian, the same amount of Canadian dollars as the tickets of Boston. So I think that the price of the ticket of Montreal, category P3 for the end of 100 L or 200L, at 1300$ dollars Canadian is not so expensive, compared to the tickets of Boston or the tickets of Helsinki, if you are considering the exchange rate between US dollars and Euros versus poor Canadian dollars. You pay less in Montreal than comparing to Boston and Helsinki. And you still get the seats at Lower level, not on the Balcony like in Boston. There are also other categories of tickets P4 and P5. The tickets of category P4 cost around 1035 $ dollars Canadian. The tickets of category P5 cost around 850 $ dollars Canadian. I think it is a bargain for US fans and Fans from European countries with Euros. I hope it sounds more encouraging to fans in US and Europe.
  7. I will believe it when he does it for real, in competition. For now, I find it hard to believe that he can do a combination with triple axel + quad toe. If he does, I guess the judges will give him all the points with +5 GOE.
  8. Sorry to try to give very late an answer to the question "Who is the blond lady in this video with Jackie of rocker skating.?" She is Andrea Joyce a sports reporter for NBC Sports Television. She works on figure skating competitions, so she is quite familiar with skating stars as is Yuzuru. She seems to admire Yuzuru very much, not only as a champion, but as a legend who has many fans around the world. Not only he is dominating his sport for many years, like Fererer or Serena in tennis, but nobody is the subject of love and obsession for him like Yuzuru. Jackie said Yuzuru is a rock star.
  9. Thank you yuzuangel. But this place has only one or two beds and they are all booked up already for the same dates from 10-14 September 2019. I checked my previous addresses on booking.com where I stayed last year for ACI, they are all booked already for the same dates in September 2019. And those Homestays have many rooms each, but they are also not available on the dates of ACI 10-14 September 2019. Many hotels in Oakville are booked already. What happens in Oakville? We are not sure if Yuzuru will be there in ACI yet.
  10. Can you give us the address please. Last year I found one Airbnb but quite far from the arena. Is it the same arena like last year? Thank you.
  11. Happy Birthday to Michaelis. I hope your health is staying good for many years. I understand your thinking. I am your age too. It's funny that Yuzuru has fans from all ages. Your post on the situation that faced Yuzuru in his pursuit of skating and winning in future competitions makes me very worried. In light of what happened with the results and the judging at World 2019, I don't see how Yuzuru can win in the future against Nathan Chen. For the judges, a clean Nathan with 4-quad will win over a clean Yuzuru with 4-quad because: 1) Base value of Nathan is higher, 2) The judges will give Nathan more GOE than Yuzuru 3) Even Nathan got the same PCS as Yuzuru for now, maybe in the future Nathan will get more PCS than Yuzuru if he keeps winning competitions, 4) Yuzuru wants to increase his Base value by training and adding others quads including quad axel, quad lutz, quad flip in competitions. But his body, his past and present injuries and his age- now he is 24 compared to Nathan 19- all are making this decision very difficult to realise. He has only 1 or 2 or 3 years to do this. Is it enough time to get all those quads? What can happen to his body? More injuries? 5) Even if Yuzuru try to increase his Base value, does he will get the preference of the judges to give him GOE or PCS competitively compared to Nathan? In the end, I don't believe that is a winning battle. I hope that Yuzuru will think of his health first. His health is the priority. He can not train and win competitions if he is not in good health or he is injured. I pray for his health. Please no more injuries. Sorry for my long post and sad feelings.
  12. Yes I agree with your view. I adore Yuzuru, he seems to me the best skater I have ever known. But I like others skaters too, men or ladies, and it is not limited to their nationality being Japanese like Yuzuru. I like all ladies medallists , Alina, Elizabet and Evgenia, each one of them are excellent skaters. After the SP, I thought Alina, Kaori and Evgenia will be on the podium, because I did not believe Elizabet will succeed with the quad sal. But she did and she deserved the silver medal. I am happy for all the medallist. I also admire their courage and determination, after all the difficulties they have been through. Congratulations to all medallists.
  13. Yes I am with you. I am sad that he could not do the quad sal or even the triple sal instead of the pop double sal which is an invalid element. But I am happy that he is still in third in SP with a good score, nearly the same score as Jason in 2nd.And I am happy that he did not fall or get injured because of the fall. The rest of the program is great, no error. He still has the chance for the gold medal or silver medal. And most of all he is still skating, not injured. So we will hold hands, sending him positive energy and our love for him. Good luck in the free.
  14. I am very happy for Alina and Eugenia, after their very difficult competitions this season. For me they are the best competitors. They won Olympics gold medal and silver medal in Pengchang 2018. My dream Podium will be Alina, Kaori and Eugenia. Good luck to all skaters infree grogram
  15. Practice for SP is at 11:00 AM in Japan tomorrow, it means 10:00 PM tonight Monday 18 th March , for us in Eastern Time Zone in Canada, like in Montreal? I think I will stay awake for news here on Planet Hanyu. I will setup the alarm on my cellphone to make sure I don't fall asleep.
