    ...supercilious about people who judge attractiveness by nationality?

    Wow after all of the skating has been debated back and forth we're really arguing about Evan's hair gel and Plush's mullet :lol:

    Surely we should all agree they both look awful and Dasike wins the award for best hairstyle? :lol:

    It's an inside joke. You are not in on it. But please continue to take things literally, by all means if it helps you feel...supercilious. ;)

    Oh, I wouldn't be too sure about that, Lulu. One knows things, one just does....

    Oh no, you are blessed. :rolleyes:
    I liked Artur Dmitriev; he was a big, handsome bear of a man. But Yags & Plush? Eys, le shrug, le ug.

    Are you implying that thinking Plush is hot makes a woman beautiful? :rolleyes:

    As for his Oly LP, it doesn't matter if some viewer finds wonky jumps enchanting. Wonky jumps should not get the same GOE as clean ones. That's not how the rules work.

    Are you posting from a crack house?

    Thanks for your advice.
    I am happy to hear that you are interested in them.
    :lol: I am glad you were inspired by the Beauty and the Beast.

    Once again, it's really wonderful to see how the Evan/quad/Casey thread ended up with lame trolling about Plush.

    You go, Man!!! :plush:

    *frowning* awww, this thread was taking such a playful turn before. :(


    I do, however, wish people would stop comparing Ilia to Leonardo di Caprio. Ilia is much better looking than Leo.

    Which was hmmm...started by a fan of Plush who doesn't like the way Evan looks...skates...ad nauseum... :rolleyes::p:rolleyes::shuffle:

    Back to topic, it will be interesting on the quad end to see World's this year, especially Dai, Patrick Chan, and Evan Bradley "go for the four" (rotations).

    I hope there will be more than those three who will go for a quad and land it. In Europeans there were 8 men who successfully landed a quad in FS. In the Worlds it should be more. I hope the first 10 will surely try it. I could be naive of course. ;)

    Um, can someone explain any major resemblance between the two to me? I don't see it, and for the record, another vote for Ilia for cuter.

    I remember a big deal was made out of this resemblance after the Games in Nagano, which took place as Titanic became a big hit. One of the syndicated US entertainment shows made a big deal out of this too, IIRC. There was some lame connection between skating on ice and the Titanic hitting ice :rolleyes:. Or was it a heartthrob on ice vs. a heartthrob whose ship hits ice....some corny shit anyways.

    Neither one of them does it for me, so I cannot say.

    Believe it or not, they did this to Katarina Witt back during the 1984 games - Brooke Shields was a huge celebrity in the USA at the time, so Katarina became the "Brooke Shields lookalike." Never saw it, myself.

    Other than the bushy brows, no. Kat always did have that rockin' bod, however.

    I can't see it either, but I'm glad everyone agrees that Ilia is better looking. I think he's aged better, too. ;)

    I read somewhere that DiCaprio wears a US size 9 hat! That is bigger than mine! Leo is shaped a bit like a lollipop.

    Dick Button made the comparison. But I think he likes to label every willowy blond female skaters the "Grace Kelly" of the ice :lol:

    No offense to either lady, but when someone says "Grace Kelly lookalike," Nancy Kerrigan is not the first face that pops to mind.

    I remember her being compared more to Katharine Hepburn.

    Has Dick ever made popular cultural references dating past 1955?

    I can't imagine him saying, doesn't skater x remind you of Lady Gaga (unless we're talking about Johnny Weir, of course.)

    Not a reference (AFAIK), but still contemporary. :saint:

    ETA: Oh, and there's a bit of early 90s referencing in this.

    I think Kiira is more Kim Novac than Grace Kelly.

    I agree... I always think Madeline from Vertigo when I see Kiira with her hair pulled back in a bun. By no means a bad thing! :)

    She also resembles Catherine Deneuve in Umbrellas of Cherbourg in her SP costume this season, I think.
