Josh and Jason have been leap- frogging over each other's achievements for years. It's been fascinating to watch. They are both amazing skaters, amazing guys. Currently Josh has an advantage due to his much better jumping . I would not be surprised if Jason gets his 3A soon and catches up, or even acquires an advantage again due to his heavenly skating skills. I cannot, absolutely cannot decide whom I like better; I love both. I noticed Josh first; in 2009, I was watching JGP and started e-mailing Josh's SP to all of my skating friends, saying "Look at this! It's darn "Sing sing sing", but that boy knows how to listen to music, he has a chance to have it all!". Then in early season 2010 Sylvia posted a link to Jason's "Nutcracker", and I was instantly in love. These guys, they are rivals, but they are not an "easy contrast", not at all the way Johnny and Evan were. Both are artistic, both seem incredibly nice. At this point Jason has more SS, originality ( partially, no doubt, due to Rohene's guidance) and, overall, performance stability; Josh has more balance of skills ( those jumps are Heaven) and creativity ( choosing Bach for SP and choreographig himself? Wow), but is more volatile in competiton situations ( already he had high highs and the lows were... low). They both have strong "ice presence". Josh is more inward and intense. Jason is more overtly charismatic and open. I hope with all my heart they keep improving and pushing each other forward for years to come. It's Jason's time to play a catch- up now (at this very second, it might change at any time). I love that it is a joint "uber' thread, because I hope they both prosper.
