    Wow, this is awesome! I never compared the 2 programs that closely. You can really see the tribute when they're next to each other. But you could always see Johnny in the way Yuzu moves so in a way, much of his career can be seen as a tribute.

    365 Days of Yuzu

    It's still 4 hours away from the new year for me but looks like the majority of the planet is already starting their new year so Happy New Year to all! Crossing my fingers for great fortune and no injuries in 2019. Inspired by Jack Gallagher and ZuCritter’s 12 days of Christmas post, I thought we’d attempt to do something Yuzu related for each day of the year. let's see how far we can get. If multiple people want to do something for the same day of the year, go ahead. You can do either the numerical day of the year or something to do with the date. I’ll start with the easy one. Day 1 The number 1 figure skater!

    I assumed it meant that Yuzu poked Nam on the butt (or pretended to) with his index/middle finger in the pose like the picture. Yeesh! We knew Yuzu was audacious but can you imagine doing that with a complete stranger - even if they were both teenage boys at the time?
  7. Anyone know? Curious how each segment has been selling. Which events sold out. NHK, Rostelecom, Helsinki, and Autumn Classic all sold out right? What about the non-Yuzu/Japanese events? Was GPF sold out?
  8. Trying to decide if I will re-subscribe. I liked that you could easily replay a lot of old competitions, but they suddenly removed all the programs before last year's GPF with no warning. I've been too lazy to learn how to use VPN's or sign up for Fuji. I've noticed a lot of comments about other streaming services crashing so as long as Yuzu competes, I'd rather pay money than deal with the stress of worrying about not being able to see it, especially with the way ISU's been cracking down on YouTube. And competitions are more fun to watch when I can watch with you guys. But beyond Yuzu, I doubt it's worth it for me. I still have to look for streams for a lot of events and most of the time I re-watch all the same events on Eurosport because I actually like commentary for competitions. Though I do enjoy no commentary for replays. Pros: 1. Great quality picture 2. Extremely reliable stream - haven't had any issues 3. Convenient/easy to use. I like that I can watch on TV any time with my Roku or online anywhere and don't have to have anyone translate to figure out how to watch 4. If you're interested in US sectionals you can watch them (though I personally don't care about them) Cons: 1. Cost. Pretty sure 59.99 is the most expensive skating service. I could probably get multiple streaming services and have access to more competitions for less. 2. No extras. Only Skate America had the gala, hit or miss with the medal ceremonies, and no interviews YMMV: Most events are no commentary.

    Lol. I think this is the youngest I've seen Yuzu get identified. Surprised Shoma also got identified as a girl when he has such strong bone structure. The trend I've noticed is that the few times that these apps identify Yuzu as male is when his face looks more angular. Maybe it's that f'n perfect skin they both have.

    The difference in PCS is a methodology difference - I substituted clean SP PCS for FS PCS. I figured let's be honest, judges give skaters, not programs, PCS scores, which is why Nathan can literally double the number of crossovers throughout the season and the PCS continues to rise. It looks like you also differentiated SP and FS scores whereas I used the highest element score between both and plugged it into all like elements. Looks like I made a mistake with Shoma. Plugged in the wrong number for 4t/3t (edited above) and I took his JPN Open score for 3a/e/3f and 3s/3t.

    post GPF/Golden Spin update Ave Clean GOE's Uno - 9.36, 8.96, 9.32, 9.32, 9.39 SP: 4f, 4t/3t, 3a* = 107.39 FS: 4s, 4f, 4t, 4t/2t, 3a, 3a/e/3f, 3s/3t = 207.45 Total: 314.84 Chen - 8.88, 8.74, 9, 9.06, 9.07 SP: 3a, 4f, 4t/3t* = 104.01 FS: 4f, 4lz, 4t, 3a, 4t/3t*, 3lz/3t*, 3f/e/3s* = 203.19 Total: 307.21 Kolyada - 9.05, 8.74, 8.99, 9, 9.06 SP: 4t/3t, 3lz, 3a* = 99.54 FS: 4s, 4t/3t, 3lz, 3a, 3lo*, 3lz/3/2s*, 3a/2t* = 189.53 Total: 289.07 *This score is lower than previous total because I assumed that the 3lz/e/2s was a popped 3s but looked at the layout and realized that it was intended that way. Brown - PCS: 9.01, 8.89, 9.09, 9.05, 9.18 SP: 3f, 3a, 3lz/3t* = 95.16 FS: 2a, 3a/3t, 3s, 3lo, 3a/2t/2lo*, 3f/3t*, 3lz* = 178.2 Total: 273.36 Cha - 8.1, 7.81, 8.12, 8.16, 8.16 SP: 4s, 3lz/3lo, 3a* = 93.18 FS: 4t, 4s, 3lz/3lo, 3a/2t, 3a*, 3f/e/3s*, 3lo = 178.42 Total: 271.6 Interesting to note that a no quad Brown has a higher potential average than a 3 quad Cha Max Earned Points Chen: 8.88, 8.74, 9, 9.06, 9.07 106.08+209.69=315.77 Uno: 9.35, 9.05, 9.35, 9.35, 9.4 105.55+207.35 = 312.9 *Note: as far as I can tell, Shoma's only been credited for fully rotated 4s twice in his career - 2017 GPF and 2017 Lombardia, which, of course, were under old rules (did not yet check to see if he landed backwards in those competitions). However, <4s still earns him more points than he would likely get with a 3lz anyway and if he every does get full credit, it brings his score up around 4.5 pts. eta: they look around 1/4 turn short at those events too. Looks like that's just how he lands it Kolyada: 9.05, 8.74, 8.99, 9, 9.06 102.44+193.98=296.42 Cha: 8.43, 8.21, 8.43, 8.5, 8.46 97.41+186.52 = 283.93 * Since his scores are generally trending up, I think this is the more relevant metric.

    [2018] GPF - Ladies SP & FS

    lol, sorry, brain fart. I was thinking you meant they somehow gave like -7 or something. Upon re-read, I realize you wrote that they gave a value greater than -5.
