    You have AWFUL taste. :p

    At least Jamie's pit stains were organic. Nearly everything about Adelina disgusts me, sorry

    Jeremy Abbott's SP or Patrick Chan's SP?

    Hell is mostly a state of consciousness. Many, many people live it every day. On the bright side, its never a permanent state and can always change.

    Candy from around the world
    Breads from around the world
    Teas/coffee from around the world

    That's pretty strong language. Why should a young girl disgust you so much?

    No love for Kostner? :p I would say Yu-Na, Mao, Julia. Julia medalling would be unfortunate for our sport, however. I would vastly prefer any of the American girls, Akiko, Carolina, or Kaetlyn.

    Who would you prefer to dominate the next quad? (pick one)
    Gracie
    Julia
    Polina
    Serafima
    Satoko
    Proklova
    Osmond
    Other _______

    Carolina has rocked my world these last few years so I'm going to go with her.

    Now that Carolina and Ashley have gone back to an older FS, who else should resurrect an old FS?

    Yu-Na
    Mao
    Akiko
    Kanako

    Yu-Na. I wish she would change her FS back to "Homage to Korea".

    1) Same question.

    2) Nakano or Suguri (during her heyday)?

    1) I too would do back flips down the hallway to see Yu-Na skate to "Homage" again. By far it was her most beautiful and unique program and really would have stood out in this Olympic year given the generic choices everyone else made :eek:. I also think Akiko's "O" would have been a perfect Olympic program.

    2) I always loved the pop Fumie got in her jumps but I never really cared for her skating. Yukari OTOH was so delightful to watch. Even her leg wrap didn't bother me...I miss her. :(


    Which era was/will be the most competitive?

    Post-Torino (after 2006)

    Post-Vancouver (after 2010)

    Post-Sochi (after this season)
