30 Days of Figure Skating: Day 28

Favorite & least favorite costume

Best figure skating costume ever

For this season only

Mao Asada’s Piano Concerto costume is the winner of this season’s costumes.

It’s ok, Adelina’s known for having the most atrocious costumes…

We’ve been compared and have competed for so long, and it seems like there won’t be that competition between us again. I think I’ll remember her the most. I don’t think there are many skaters like us two, who were constantly being compared.” (x)

30 Days of Figure Skating: Day 25

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.

30 Days of Figure Skating: Day 22

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.
