    Funniest video of a coach ever. Not sure if he wanted to poop, couldn't go or was in the process of having an enema. At least the poop theme for this FD is consistent.

    I think he does. I think he honestly wanted to give Elena and Nikita his best material, so I even start to feel bad about all the super-negative comments about their program. :shuffle:

    That makes me feel sad that he believes this is his best. Time for him to take a vacation away, watch some SYTYCD seasons and get inspired for the next season because he can't do this to them again esp with the Olympics in Sochi.

    He may not see it objectively. We don't know what emotional connection he has to this music. For example, it could have been his first date going to watch Ghost musical...

    If only they'd got tickets for any other show on Broadway this summer instead of doing to see Ghost :drama: An Anything Goes FD could have been wonderful, or Newsies...

    His FIRST date? The musical had its world premiere just last year. His nine thousand and first, maybe . . . :)

    Yeah, that body language doesn't scream objectivity. He is REALLY into this music.

    He almost doesn't look right in the head.

    Mister Potato (Morozov) has never ever been right in his mind. Never.

    First date with Elena? Although people have been saying they've been together for a year. Maybe his first date with the girl with whom he's cheating on Elena.

    So sad but probably true. He is the stereotype for a cheater...

    Oh dear. That has got to be one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen. I feel physically ill. And I didn't even get to the part with the voiceovers, can't watch that again.

    THe hilarious thing is though :rofl: that someone decided to shoot that.

    His expressions did look like the people in the recent commercial touting a vaccine to prevent stomach ills, because you never know when they will strike.

    IDK why that link isn't working but it's a picture of him and Elena embracing each other. Look to be on a date and so in love. Elena looks gorgeous as usual and he looks slimy. PLease dump him soon Lena.

    How anyone could leave Nikita for THAT...:drama:

    He looks like Marat Safin's slightly dorky but even more adorable little brother. Bad choice, Elena, bad choice.

    "#TEB2012 "TEB Flash" According to Eteri Tutberidze Julia Lipnitskaia turned right ankle few days ago, they are still not sure she'll be able to perform. Today's practice was very light, without jumps."

    IMO no one in history is more adorable (and probably a few other things) than Marat Safin.

    Julia Antipova/Nodari M. SP at Russian Cup IV scored 56.24

    Not bad for her since she just started skating pairs. Needs more speed and flow. Hate his costume :D

    thanks for the vid.

    her solo jump was as bad as lubovs :cool:
    but nice to see him again. pair looked good together, for this short time.
    very slow, but they can work on that. i´d like to see what they can achieve in future.

    so excited for the first clash of riazanova/tkachenko and pushkash/guerrerio this season.

    this years fight fpr 3rd spot in ice dance is freaking awesome with monko/khaliavin, sinitsina/zhiganshin, starygina/volobuiev.

    hard to see, that 4 of this 5 will have no international championship (unless number 3 three clashes az euros). every other country would be amazed sending those teams.

    I hope that horrid 3 toe attempt from her was just a fluke and she can at least do it reasonably well sometimes, becuase I'm really impressed by the potential they have!

    The pair has definitely potential, but unfortunately she doesn't have Lubov' quality of projecting the program into audience.
    Julia keeps looking down all the time. For example in step sequence - every time some more difficult tun is coming (which is quite frequently), she looks down and then immediately her head goes up again. So she is constantly nodding (head down/up/down/up/down/up).

    Is there a hint she is replacing the horrible Ghost program, or is she supposed to be doing something to improve it :)slinkaway: like getting rid of the spoken lines)

    Sotnikova deleted her social media accounts...twitter, formspring. wonder if that was a demand from her coach in response to her poor peformances :lol:. Humans are social animals, cutting her off from ways to interact with others is unlikely to resolve the issues in her skating...In any event, I'll miss the cute pictures she always seemed to post on her twitter account, the skaters at CSKA all seem very close!

    Anything is possible, but I have never heard of Morozov dating a man, only women (and lots of them).

    Thank God! At least someone recognizes there's a problem.

    You don't know what was the reason. Maybe she was getting too much abuse from her so called fans...

    Tuk has 22 points and edges out Gao with 22 points on total scores.

    3 have already qualified ( Korpi, Lipnit and Wagner)

    There are 3 people who can get 24 points next week ( Asada, Suzuki, Agnes) and 2 who can get 22 with a win ( Gedevan and Li) ...so Tuk has to wait and see if 22 gets her through the various placements at NHK.

    Mao can get 24 or more with 1/2/3/4
    Suzuki can get 24 or more with 1/2/3
    Agnes can get 24 or more with 1/2..so Agnes could finish 1st or 2nd.
