Aw Kevin. I don't think he's quite cottoned on that he himself is among the elite in men's figure skating at the moment. 

the rest of us too - it's easy to forget that he's been next to Yuzu on the podium now at 3 competitions in the past year. That's a lot. basically every competition they were at together in 2019-20.

For real, he would look so handsome in a tux.

I suddenly got this mental image of Yuzu doing a gala program (maybe that slow, sensuous Gershwin I dream about) in a deliberately dishevelled tux costume with tie askew and hanging loose, top buttons undone, jacket open..,

 

Don't mind me.

I have more of a James Bond image. It's about time Bond was Japanese, no? 

 

But for your vision: Rhapsody in Blue, most definitely

Seeing Yuzu dominating the first 5 in weekly winter sport book ranking on Rakuten is satisfying; that MVP award can eat dust :rock:

Never mind, I found it, he actually two-footed a 2A, didn't fall.

Im not sure which interview it was, but I remember reading transcripts where he said he fell during program when he won his second Olympic title. I think its that program where they had segments on Plushenko, Javi and Button...

"Shenanigans" is almost too light-weight a term for what the ISU is doing.  And - are they seriously planning on doing another awards show at next year World's?  It's not like the #1 for almost every category wouldn't be the same nine months from now. Maybe the costume category would relate specifically to the competition year (and why would that go to the skater and not the costume designer?) , but not "most valuable" - that would be the same for the last five years.  Newcomer, I guess.  And when, if ever, will they release the number of fan votes each person received?  The criteria is so vague. 

 

I find it possible if the Awards won't be a success, especially at Worlds where there will be lots of empty seats, they will realise it will be better idea to go back to gala. After all ISU needs money and they can get more of it if there is a gala and not some awards show. Galas attract more people, even some locals who aren't really into the sport.

 

The reactions I read about the Awards are either negative or neutral at best. I don't think many will watch it online and it will definitely not reach a wider audience imo. So if their aim is to make the sport more popular in the west, then I think they won't reach that goal.
