    They're perfect for eachother. They are both so very orange.

    I actually posted about this because it occured in my hometown. It was promotion for the Gymnastics and Skating Spectacular that will take place in the Allen Even center in Allen TX on October 3.

    My post is here. In that post is a small review, pictures, and two links from Allen ISD... he spoke at two elementary schools in the Allen area. He also spoke at some middle schools in McKinney area.

    Videos and Pictures I took... Please do not reproduce.

    :cheer2: For the orange golden couple!

    Thanks for the reports and pics!


    Unless my eyes deceive me, that is one killer Goyard bag between them. :swoon:

    They are certainly very attractive:smokin:
    From all the orange talk, I feared they'd look like a pair of oompa loompa, but I like their tan.

    Well, she already has the spiral down!

    Wasn't it Kerri Strugg who was also a skater (recreationally, but very good), or was able to switch after her competitive gymnastics career was over? Or am I imagining this?

    Yes, well matched. Lots of similarities e.g.
    *tanning habits
    *long lean bodies
    *nice smiles
    *interest in men....

    I think you're imagining it, or you might be remembering that she mad appearances with Ice Capades. From what I understood, she was doing gymnastics in those shows, which included off-ice acrobatics in addition to skating. I don't believe she ever skated.

    I remember seeing an inside edition clip with Shannon Miller taking skating lessons. She was doing some small jumps, and remarked that it was wierd to keep her knees soft after a lifetime of keeping her lets totally extended.

    Gotcha. I think I remembering hearing she did some ice shows, and I thought she was skating in them. I knew it sounded too bizarre to be true.

    For real. It wouldn't be an Evan Lysacek thread without his sexual orientation being brought up...:rolleyes:

    Anyway, Nastia has a pretty nice spiral! ;) She looks less orange-y than she did at Nationals a few weeks ago, so that's nice, too. :)

    LOL Well you know what they say, some people see red when they're angry, green when they're envious and orange when they're bitter.

    I love you, Johnny. I wish you were World and Olympic champion as well, and I still don't know what happened with Evan's twitter and how I'd feel about him if he *was* directly involved, but I won't stoop to childish name calling on message boards and blogs to defend you. You can and will do that on your own because you are a grown man.
    And more so, TwitterGate2010 is such old news! LOL

    And I'm sure once the denial phase wears off, Plushenco will accept that he was soundly beating in Vancouver, banned (still can't believe it...what a way to end an amateur career. smh) from future ISU competitions, and move on with his life. So why would anyone waste time being bitter about that? LOL

    Goodnight, everykwan.:encore:thank you, thank you....you've been a wonderful audience.

    Maybe you are thinking about Tabitha Yim? She competed in both, but eventually chose gymnastics over skating.
     
  19. They are probably just friends. Nastya has really blossomed into a beautiful young woman.

    From the comments of you guys (which I read before watching) I thought Liukin was gliding on her own while doing the spiral, and I was a bit surprised, cause that would have been good.
    But she's only hitting the position while she's been dragged around. And that position she can hit on drugs, at 30 below zero.

    I think any gymnast would be surprisingly good on skates if she gave it a serious try. It's their training. Gymnasts are incredibly stronger and more flexible than skaters.
    Usually, when a gymnast kid quits and turns to ice skating, in the first couple of years she catches up with the girls of her same age, which have been skating longer. Coaches and parents start considering the kid a natural and they get frustrated when progresses slow down. Which happens because eventually the kid loses the gymnastic fitness.


    Yes. Or maybe they both are sponsored by Ralph Lauren.

    There is an Evan article in the Allen paper today and he made the cover of this other Allen newspaper thing we get. Will try to scan them for you guys :)

    From the ELFFs:
    I ate at Brio the night before for my birthday dinner :)

    Are those rental skates? The have a giant number 7 on the back. I guess now we know Nastia's shoe size. It also looks like they got half the ice coned off for themselves.

    They look cute together :)

    Thanks for the scans, ryanbfan!

    How come I never get surprise visits from Olympic gold medal skaters at my work? I bet that would be very motivating!

    I think LS was taking off on the "They're both so orange" comments.

    They don't look orange on my computer. She has a better tan....as in real tan than he does. Doesn't all black sort of drain any facial color out?? And since he's the Johnny Cash on skates, well no wonder there is no facial color.
