    The Laureus is exciting news, and Yuzuru's in with some tough competition there. Especially against McMorris, who basically walked his way back from near death and near paralysis to get on the Olympic podium in only 10 months. I mean, when they stretchered him off the mountain after his accident, no one knew if he'd even walk again, never mind do flips 2 storeys into the air on a snowboard...

    I now have a completely new perspective on all his scrunchy smile moments. Thanks. Also, you reminded me of this:

    Well, if he does that, he might as well go for broke and do the most epic Michael Jackson song ever written - Billie Jean. Although I think Yuzu could totally slay Smooth Criminal.

    A lot of smaller-sized women I know shop girl's sizes for exactly this reason. But the clothes aren't always suitable for an adult woman. Anyway, aside from being incredibly athletic, Yuzu has a mom who sews. So I wouldn't be surprised if she tailors his clothes sometimes. However, doesn't he usually have a hard time finding suit jackets he's not absolutely swimming in? I seem to recall that being a thing...

    How about a T-shirt with a slogan across the belly that says "My other waist is a Hanyu" ?

    You know how in a lot of his warm up videos, he does side planks? I always visualize a cat walking under him and choosing to sit there, trapping him in the upper position.

    OhmiGAWD! No! No no no. Yikes! The "Hanyu shirt" T-shirts are great though.

    I just had a completely random thought.... anyone remember the old 'most interesting man in the world' Dos Equis commercials? What if Yuzu had an ad campaign like that? cue voiceover "His world records, break records. His manners are so good, Emily Post asks him for advice. Even his bragging is polite. Who is he? He is -" big dramatic pause "- the most space kitty skater in the World." Camera cuts to Yuzu with Pooh headband, giggling at the camera. Too silly?
  9. I can imagine it easily...I think my sister had a skating outfit that we used to call 'Kermit', back when she took lessons. It was literally that colour of green, with fringed skirt and sleeves and a white turtleneck to go under...

    Watching this, it looks like his pre-compete routine is to relax and take his mind off things (the ball and the goofing around), then pump himself up while raising his HR (the walking and lip-synching, rapid walking with arm circles), then thoroughly warm up all the muscle groups and skills he'll need (the walking backwards, the rolling around on the little stool thingy). I'd love to see the rest of the routine. Also interesting to watch what's going on with Papadakis and Cizeron in the corner there too. Incidentally, just judging from this video, Yuzu's shoulders are much more flexible and have greater range of motion than many a swimmer's. I wasn't expecting that.
  11. Ah! How could I forget "Rainbow Connection"? Very appropriate for that age, actually. Brave girl trying 3 Lutz.
  12. Was it 'It Isn't Easy Being Green?' I can't think of any other song by Kermit that would be skateable... If Gabby's back in full form, the women's will be a one-woman show. Unless someone comes out of nowhere to wow us. In the men's, I expect the hot competition to be for second. Unless Keegan has a really bad day, there's no good reason for him to not be first. Since this is Stephen's first Nationals as a senior, I don't want to make any predictions for him. He might have the chops to pull off a win, but experience counts and Keegan has that. And I feel like there's 2 or 3 guys that'll be closely matched to each other but just a notch below Keegan in technical skill. In pairs, I only know Moore-Towers/Marinaro so I'm not making any predictions. The big competition is ice dance - Weaver/Poje and Gilles/Poirier will be duking it out.
