    Well yeah but those have been like FaOI or other Japan ice shows, not so much as a guest of their personal ice shows right?
  2. Normally our first hint is fan accounts +/- photos of the crowd waiting for him at the airport lol

    When will Yuzu land 4A

    Okay. Scenario. Yuzu for some weird reason bombs the SP. Or at least isn't happy with his score, or feels threatened for first place. At the same time Dimitri lands Nessie in practice. Yuzu, who's already kyushi and deliberating all his options for YOLOing his way to victory, suddenly decides that Nessie is a risk worth taking. BAM HISTORY MADE. (Please don't kill me... )

    Something just occured to me. There's a possible unfortunate side effect to Yuzu's stardom. He will always be the star of any ice show he is in. Which is great for us, but does mean that if it's another skaters ice show (rather than a general ice show, if that makes sense) he might inevitably pull the spotlight away from the "main skater", which in itself would be unfortunate, but that risk may also mean there are some skaters who might avoid inviting him for that very reason....
  5. Ya know, I know times are different now, and the level and extent of competition is different now, but whenever I think about her record of 10 (FREAKING TEN!!) World Champion titles, I'm mindblown. But thanks for the video, I'll watch it later!
  6. Every competition organiser with Yuzu in it is basically guaranteed sold out ticket sales, but is also inadvertently signing up for providing security services for him lol. Anyone with a longer skating memory than me can remember if any other skater has generated similar to hanyuconomy? Closest would be Yuna right?
  7. So I'm working on SP day. As well as all the practice days before. Going to be sneaking peeks at my phone whenever I can (which knowing my luck will be in the elevator when I'm traveling between wards!) !!! At least I'm off on FS!!!!

    Oh wow. That looks complicated. I really just understood it in a much simpler way. Since the axel is jumped facing forward, if a skater is pre-rotated by 180° he would be facing the other way, and would no longer be facing forward, but facing backwards instead, and hence it wouldn't even be an axel.

    I loved those commentaries! And it's going to mean something when they eventually do say that he has skated perfectly, has skated his best! Like when Max basically gushed and yelled in elation over Worlds 2017 FS. Personally it was the best reaction, one I was especially proud of as a fan, one that actually meant something, because I knew he was a commentator who knew his stuff, who doesn't praise without reason, who is a stickler for quality.

    So, I know it's off topic, but I have a thought that may not go over well... I've felt really uncomfortable during Helsinki, and since, whenever people (commentators, journalists, other skaters) are like "that was the best of Hanyu" or "that was perfection" or "that was flawless", especially regarding his FS. Because, actually, no. That performance, while beautiful and amazing for a first competition for Yuzuru, was not his best, was not perfect, he still has stuff to work on, something that he very clearly knows and accepts. I wondered why I felt such a knee jerk negative response to said comments, and I realise it's because it feels like it cheapens his truly great outstanding performances, and makes it feel like people are saying that not because it's true but because he's Yuzuru Hanyu. Thoughts?

    I refuse to read it because I know it'll just piss me off. I already downright hate (And I genuinely do not use that word lightly in this context) nbc and the US sports media's mentality regarding figure skating, I don't want to make things even worse.... the mentality just drives me nuts and makes me want to *mimes chocking someone *

    Well, he hasn't ALWAYS skated this smoothly, but it's definitely a trait of his in his senior years, and one that sets him apart from the field. It's something that is currently unique to him alone in the men's field, the ability to make his jumps come out of no where, and seem like part of the choreo. It's why his GOE is so high. It's why he won the Olympics with the two lowest value quads. He doesn't take half a rink to set up a jump, he jumps from complicated set ups (this season, from twizzles, from a freaking hydroblades). And it all stems from his solid foundation, the way he (And team TCC) have placed emphasis on his skating skills and edgework and the cores of figure skating. And his textbook perfect jump technique of course. Before Javi retired, he and Yuzu were noticeably smoother on the ice than all their competitors. And now? He's basically alone in his fluidity on ice.
