    I have this sinking feeling Junliet is just too tall. He's been limping around off ice. I know he's only young but if he grows past 180cm that can't help his cause. *** Eteri referenced Zhenya leaving in passing which has caused a sh#t storm between fans and antis. A year has passed, things have died down and now looks like it's going to rev up again. She also disclosed that Alina was thinking of withdrawing from Worlds something that imo was completely unnecessary to divulge since haters are just waiting to jump on the poor kid. Seriously the two teenagers who have suffered the most in this endless drama have been nothing but graceful and drama free in their conduct. Eteri should be ashamed of herself. *** Speaking of my two favourites (along with Rika and Bradie) it looks like both Alina and Zhenya are coming back next year. I'm really glad Zhenya medalled because I think this will buy her some time with Rusfed to improve her technique and settle those jumps. Even if she does badly against the crop of juniors who are moving up, at least she won't fade into oblivion due to the recent medal. And then the future is anyone's to predict. If she's strong and can improve her tech anything can happen. Alina I'm worried about because I don't feel like she's in as good an environment as Zhenya. *** Upon rewatching it seems that Mie Hamada, Rika's coach, was watching Vincent skate. She hugged his coaches right after his final skate!

    Two super weird questions I am hoping one of you can answer. MIT is in Boston yes? I am like 99% sure but it's not my country so I should check! What is the BIGGEST Ice hockey team in Boston?

    They need those tennis cameras! And give the skaters challenges to challenge their calls. Lol can you imagine the drama!? I am the first to admit I cannot see under rotations (I watched some videos that tried to explain them and felt like I was going cross eyed by the end) but I am suspicious that every other man and his dog seems to be quite expert at spotting them whenever convenient and usually against a skater they dislike.

    I just watched the ESP broadcast of Vincent's skate. According to that commentator them quads were rotated. Guess he didn't rob anyone after all and people like to jump on his under rotation reputation. He got sent to Rika's coach for jump training at some point so maybe that helped.

    Rika is on her way to fully rotating a quad. She gets sent off to train it often and I think it's a serious strategy for her camp. Fans are speculating she's going to try quads in her ice shows. I think the landscape might change if girls like Rika and Kaori can do quads. Kaori does some crazy jumps too and I read stuff about her upping her tech content also. I'm not anti quads, I'm anti splatting and as the boys showed last night it doesn't have to be a splat fest, you can have fantastic performances too ( I enjoy Nathan's high energy programs this season) so I'm excited to see boundaries pushed.

    I'm opposite. I was buzzing with excitement after Hanyu's skate and then started freaking out about the Pooh bears and how this would affect Nathan. Then I kinda felt ill before his first jump, felt better after the triple axel and then it was all good after that as I watched his tech score climb πŸ˜… Was semi distressing but funπŸ˜‚

    Who should have been 3rd though? Quite a few of the others splatted. Also is it obvious he underroated and how many jumps did he under rotate? How many points should he have lost? I watched his skate twice and I enjoyed it. His ninja routine was adorable. I liked the quad combo with the arm over the head. *** I felt like this was as fair an outcome as could be in both the mens and womens. I'm not a fan of the silver medalist in ladies but I can't say she robbed anyone.

    I watched all three medal programs again and they were all clean. Quads and all. That's amazing and really feels like the sport has been elevated to another level.

    Nathan!!!!!! Omg!!!!!! I was sooo worried for him after Hanyu's fantastic skate and all those damn pooh bears needing to be cleaned up but OMG he delivered!!!!!!! The boys were impressive and the quads were flying. Crazy and so awesome.

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    Totally agree. You'd have an audience who is full of distrust and thinking "Why the f#ck will I watch this spin off? It's gonna end in a pointless dumpster fire like the original series." Seriously there would be no point in watching the spin off if you know the creators/writers are just going to write miserable storylines. The only exception that worries me is that Legacies is doing ok so they might not worry about that. @scarynikki12 that HIMYM finale 😠😑😠😑😠😑 I want the time I wasted on that series back.

    My new jade ring! I'm in love 😍😍😍 Ever since I dabbled in jade I've been hankering for a green honker. After many months of looking (including a ban period to pray for the Olicitot) I fell in love with this one. My family informed me they were sick of analysing jade videos and I even roped @BkWurm1 into watching a few. I'm officially on a ban for the rest of year! No more budget for gems and trinkets! You can hold me to it! Starter and the upgrade

    I was so sad when I realised she didn't blow him up. I would have totes blown him up πŸ˜‚

    This photo was....interesting Kudos to Zhenya for being a pro. Kinda baffling they got this shot. This is cute though *** Rika is gorgeous on ice (and a jumping bean to boot!) but unfortunately that SP cost her. She was a star this season but she had one too many dramatic comebacks while the others clung on for dear life this competition. I'm really looking forward to seeing Rika next year. She's a very exciting skater. And I'm interested in her quad progress.

    Devastated for Rika but beyond thrill for Alina and Zhenya. Zhenya skated with sheer will. That fierce face when she finished. It was like she willed herself through the skate to quash all the people who wrote her off. My gosh that girl is admirable. Alina also fought her ass off during that skate. I teared up at her landing those jumps and the sheer relief on her face at the end of it. Baby did great and deserves a nice, long vacation and LOTS of endorsements! Rusfed nailed it with their decision!!!!!!! Congrats to Bradie too! She did so well in a really tough field!
