tbh I'm kinda glad Brian isn't the main coach anymore because I was worrying that, despite Brian's experience and growth as a coach, Brian himself could feel the pressure of delivering gold to Canada as a coach, after he failed as a skater...after all, he's coached two skaters to OGM and one of them twice, wouldn't media and people and himself almost expect him to continue the golden streak, and this time with a Canadian man? so, idk if before OWG he's gonna the main coach again, but for now it's certainly good that the hype train and pressure of coaching the Canadian hope for gold has lessened a bit for both skater and coach:biggrin:

I can understand this worry, but if you go back and look at some of the things Brian's been saying in the past year, but especially since the Olympics, I think he's learned what he needs as a coach to be able to manage expectations. Stephen isn't the first young phenom Brian has had charge of, and he won't be the last. I'd be more worried about Skate Canada. As an organization, it sometimes seems a bit clumsy in how it handles skaters with high potential.

Spoiler

Also, I know you didn't mean it badly, but Brian's not viewed as someone who failed as a skater, at least not at home in Canada. He lost gold by 0.1 of a point. That's  a slim enough margin that most Canadian skating fans at the time assumed he was robbed by partisan judging. And he had all kinds of success afterwards. But he does get that 'your skaters can get the gold you didn't' thing a lot from the media. It's really unfortunate, because that's not what Brian's coaching is about.

Of course they work hard to get where they are. However, they don't have the character and integrity, honesty and general overall goodness Yuzu does, so to my mind he's head and shoulders above them. 

 

Plus, I just hate basketball in general (and NFL football, and soccer. I can tolerate baseball and enjoy hockey but most of the major league sports leave me cold). So I'm not inclined to be impressed by the sport's athletes. IMO rugby has far better role models and is way more entertaining to watch. 

 

 

 

Dunno about the others, but LeBron make a school for underprivileged children at his home town. I know about this coz my friends discussed about him before.

Oh is there anywhere I could find more information about this? Or is it okay to just rock up? I'm guessing both parts will be held in Sendai? 

Both parts in Sendai and will be held at Sendai Ennichi. Judging by 'Vol. 10', I guess this should be the 10th series of exhibition of photos taken by Nodo-san. You can find the announcement of the event on the venue's website here: http://www.ox-tv.co.jp/en/#event 

Entrance is free!

@dotsquare 

Sorry for being late to reply! The event is held in a space called "Sendai Ennnichi (仙台縁日)" owned by Sendai Hoso, a Sendai-based TV company which will air nationals in Miyagi. The event has been announced by them on their website shared by @yumeaki and on the poster as well. As yumeaki guessed, they'll exhibit photos by Sunao Noto. According to the info on the poster, they'll exhibit different phots in the first and second half of the exhibition respectively.


Here is the map of the place. (2 Chome-1-18 Chūō, Aoba-ku, Sendai-shi, Miyagi-ken 980-0021 is the address of Sendai Ennnichi)


Fans in Sendai kindly shared photos of the place today.

Seems like the poster is displayed on Sendai Ennich's wall.

 

The third photo is the entrance of Sendai Ennnich.

 

ETA: Another photo of the place

There was an exhibition there in April, when the parade took place, too. I stopped by, though not on the day of the Parade, but a couple of days later. It's actually a really small place, on a commercial street sort of around downtown Sendai - pretty close to the JR station; IIRC, I walked from there to the JR station, despite the rain on that day. The pictures were really nice, though! And even just that big poster outside is more than worth it! lol So beautiful... Also, if in Sendai, do go to Ice Rink Sendai. The gallery there is also free entrance and it's really nice. I got super emotional there, especially as the Pandalion video from this year was playing on repeat on a big screen TV there. And of course, if you can skate, you can go in properly, too. I can't so the gallery was it for me lol
