Saddest figure skating moment
Mao Asada not being a contender for Sochi. Her short program broke my heart and I was literally in tears. I wanted her to do so well and to see everything that lead up to the moment completely fall apart was just awful, as a viewer and as an athlete.
The quad. Give your opinion.
It’s awesome. It’s beautiful when well executed. I still love it when skaters fall on it. It’s just so technically challenging and cool that the human body can move like that all with just the aid of two thin blades and be expected to land 4 rotations on a single thin blade.
Anyone who is against the quad is against the sport moving forward and evolving.
Favorite & least favorite commentator
Favorite: British Eurosport commentators. Particularly Simon Reed and Chris Howard. Nicky also use to commentate a lot and he was also awesome. I love how they can spot out amazing talent and accurately predict champions.
Lease favorite: NBC commentators. I don’t like NBC because all they talk about are US skaters. And they’re only truly interested when an American is skating. Hello, there are other people in the sport besides Americans.
Honorable mention: Thanks to Japanese commentators, I was able to really understand the different jumps since they always say the jumps. I can’t understand anything else in between but since the jumps and elements are in English, it was really helpful.
Team Johnny or Team Evan?
Uhm, neither. I like Johnny a bit more than Evan just because I’m a huge fan of the quad. What I don’t like about Johnny is his “Bollywood” routine. It sort of reinforces the culture is a costume trope. He needs to understand that wearing a bindi is inappropriate being that he is a white man.
@nobutaro1001: 富山でも素敵なTシャツありがとうございます。#冗談は顔だけにして“Thank you to Toyama for these T-shirts. These kind are my favourite. #jklol”
Oda: (cat-like) stealthy and soundless steps on ice. (I’m guessing it’s something he’s known for?)
Dai: Bad dumplings are also tasty.
Yuzu: hates to loose and is very stubborn
Nam: Nam-kun(Credits to nonchan1023 for translation corrections) Thank you so much-!
