    Browning, Kwan, and Mao fans probably have a different opinion (because they have no choice). But Iosing a worlds doesn't seem to be nearly as emotionally scarring for these athletes as losing an Olympics seems.
  2. But why would they risk her long term development when she is at a rink where she's making good progress, and yet has to return to it to train with the same person being accused of bullying her. She could get her name out there by simply skating well too as Korea is receptive to that.
  3. And it didn't take TMZ long... https://www.tmz.com/2019/03/21/u-s-figure-skater-accused-of-slashing-korean-rival/?fbclid=IwAR3zyFHwn6GbWbTpw3J5Rqo9V9NjKJ_yYLy8jXPSAM4noDEXnhjiHGAkoLE
  4. I was on the side where this happened just a few rows back. It was jarring and unsettling, I remember it vividly.
  5. Or maybe wishful thinking on someone's part

    You know looking back at these PC photos and memories, it's kind of amazing how Yuzu managed to make his defense look...not THAT hard. Only the best can make something so difficult look so effortless.

    People say the same thing about figure skating tbh...Especially those who might have been voting. I had a feeling it'd be either Vonn or Woods.

    Except the 8 quads he did at last year's Worlds? I'd give the guy more credit than that. He is now more experienced than he was then as well. We just need to wait and see, folks.

    Something alone the lines of "nobody can beat this, not even Yuzuru". It's the best I've seen Nate skate honestly. Pretty drastic difference from the GPF. But I do think a 2017 Worlds H&L Yuzu could compete with that with fair scoring. We'll see at Worlds I guess. Yuzu just needs to focus on Yuzu.

    LOL the last one is funny. It says to search for Ghislain.

    Okay, that was a dose of adorable that I just wasn't ready for.

    @kiches and I are still going. We're just making it more of a sightseeing trip as we won't be as diligent about attending the practices which typically cuts a lot into that time. Vancouver's a beautiful city with a lot to do, so I'll look forward to the distraction. What a shot! Also that little girl's face in the back ! She made sure not to miss her chance the next day. Yeah I too just chalked it up to Yuzu's English not necessarily being the best and it's not Plushy's native language either (he sounds around upper intermediate himself), so I can see signals getting crossed. But as someone that lived through the bitter rivalry of Plushy and Yags, I am pleasantly floored that Yuzu is able to bring them together in a sense. I welcome the mutual fanboying .

    I've said it a million times already but being a Yuzu fan is literally strapping yourself into a roller coaster. You can't control when or where it ends, and you can't get off because feelings aren't as simple as a switch. The highs are so damn high, but the lows are oh so low. I would say overall it's the most rewarding being his fan. I don't think I could have been happier for that PC win if I were as big of a fan of anyone else, but that was after a lot of despair because of NHK. I am handling it better this time around, but what a bummer. I just hope this means we'll be in for a huge high later (at Worlds please?). Can't say he hasn't made all the beyond necessary sacrifices to the skate gods.

    I have a friend who has a friend that's from Japan (though she hasn't lived there in years and isn't into figure skating). After Yuzu won I was explaining to him how I doubt there is a Japanese person alive that doesn't know who he is. He claimed his friend probably didn't know. Of course a couple of days later he came back and said that she indeed DID know who he was . Can't underestimate that Yuzu is the pride of a nation! Thank you for sharing. My mom recently went to Autumn Classic this year and it was her first skating competition. She knows I'm an avid Yuzu fan and really supports it, so I try to cherish those bonding experiences. She likes him too and really enjoyed watching all the anticipation and excitement around him, and seeing how happy his skating makes people. Let's just continue to enjoy his gift because life is too short. I know what you mean about making it a private thing. People know I love skating and they know I am a fan of Yuzu, but I get the feeling it comes off a little differently than people that love a sports team just as avidly. For me it's the same. Like NFL fans have their jerseys, they paint their bodies in colors and cheer belligerently in the cold. I have my Pooh ears and just want to do my own thing.

    I can't even count all of the clear files and swag I've picked up at skating comps. The fans are amazingly generous.
