  1. Yep, that's my only seat. But I only have 100 charms and I intend to hand them out to PH members on Tuesday before men's practice, when we get together to pick up the tote bags. I will be in my seat after that. But I've made the difficult decision to only watch Men's events with Yuzu, since I have a lung condition and I'm worried about catching the coronavirus. See you there.
  2. Oh, I don't give them credit for strong emotions (unless greed is an emotion.) It's all about the money they know they're going to lose if they don't do something to trick us into forgiving them.
  3. As an American, it WOULD make me proud of Nathan if he won a deserved silver metal, after working hard to improve. Right now, I think he looks clumsy next to Yuzu.
  4. I'm saying it again - Yuzu is the very reason for this award show. They're trying to find a way to woo us back, by making a big deal of our boy. He will get the Most Valuable Skater Award. Then they will make a big deal out of his friendship with Nathan and they may even give Nathan the Most Entertaining Program Award and then parade the two of them around together. They want us to stop being mad at them so we'll stop threatening to leave them when Yuzu retires. Of course, the intelligent way to do that would have been to score Yuzu fairly, but that boat has already sailed. They're thinking, "how do we get the fans to love another superstar so we can still make money?" and "How do we get them to accept it if we manufacture another world title for our new superstar." As evidence of this, consider the fact that the red carpet/jury/hosts are disproportionately from SOI - Nathan's show. This is ALL about Yuzu. BTW, if I'm wrong, and they award Most Valuable Skater to Nathan instead, I will get my ass up out of that overpriced seat and vacate the premises. I hope everyone else plans to do the same thing, because there is ZERO doubt who the fans voted for. Think of the message it would send, if more than half the audience suddenly left.
  5. Yep, I did my research about what Japanese folks think are lucky. I actually had to buy the 5 yen coin from e-bay because American banks won't carry these very low value coins.
  6. I almost bought some of those, out of curiosity, but they cost too much to have them sent from Japan. Because they are considered good luck, they have every variety you can imagine in Japan.
  7. So sorry I missed this, I'm in panic mode, preparing for World's. I guess you already got your answers. I agree, it's a sin not to show Roman.
  8. These are Fanyu Good Luck Charms I will be handing out at Worlds. (You can find me at seat: SECTION 101 - ROW R - SEAT 10) Obviously, I expected Yuzu to be doing Origin there, but it's still good luck and will remind us of purple Origin. At least I added a Ballad feather In Japan, 5 yen coins are considered good luck. They also consider KitKat bars good luck because "Kit Kat" sounds like the Japanese word for "sure win." Because of this, KitKat bars are very popular in Japan... and, well, they're yummy ,chocolate covered wafers, so... Anyway, I'll post a reminder as we get closer.
  9. I live in Massachusetts. If you get Express VPN (or some other VPN) and pretend you're in Germany, you can livestream ISU Youtube. Also, check your cable on-demand, since Olympic Channel already broadcast their coverage of the SP with Johnny Weir. If you search for the free skate, you can set your DVR and keep it forever in HD.
  10. Well... I got the purple roses and they're very lovely, but the 1,040 which I bought take up a lot of room. I'm driving to worlds, so I can easily manage several thousand of them (I hope I can afford more later,) but If anyone is joining me in this endeavor, you should know, one package of 80 roses is 13x10x3" inches. Since they're made of thin foam, they are very lightweight.
  11. Hi everyone. I want to make a statement at Worlds. I want there to be no question who we are all there to see. I know others will provide those wonderful individual banners again, and I purchased 1040 3-inch purple foam roses at only $0.15 each (see Amazon link below) to hand out at Worlds. I plan to put tags on them, with Yuzu's name, Origin, World's 2020, and maybe 4A written on them. Maybe we can all hold them up or wear them so the cameras can see. Man, I really just want to rub ISU's faces in it. Anyway, I can only afford 1040 for now, but if anyone else wants to join me in this endeavor, I've provided the link. Please note, this is less than half the price of other sellers, so I don't know if this price will hold for long: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YC71DTN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. I wish you all the luck! I'm worried about him retiring and being forced to fight for FaOI tickets.
  13. Yeah, the timing is why I think it was the start of Yuzu trying to get the Bielmann back. He couldn't grab his right foot and force it upward while his ankle was still injured. But this is exactly the sort of work he would need to get it back. Also, not too many men at TCC would be stretching for a Bielmann. I hope so too - that he's been ordered to take it easy for awhile. Poor, exhausted baby.
