He has no puter. Well, at least he won't get caught posting a nude pic of himself on the internet or fall prey to internet hook ups.

Yes, Heiss and Wilson were a good combination for Miki and I prefer the costumes she wore then.
With the amount of hatred towards Morozov in this thread, it should be retitled.
My opinion in a nut-shell. Western Ango-Saxon culture is more likely to favor heroes’ behavior like Rob Roy and Robin Hood – Humble Reserved almost Silent Hero.
Many of us (not all) in Russia (I am close to Morozov’s age, but older), grew up with European fiction literature, which has heroes like D’Arthanian, Casanova, Toreador (from Carmen), Don Juans and other flamboyant cavaliers with overt show-off personalities, who conquest and brag... I can make a far fetched case for cultures that are influenced by Protestant vs. Catholic values and practices, Northern European vs. Mediterranean cultures and the behavior of their characters, but that’s another subject…. .
I personally don’t like YK’s “Bond” programme, because I don’t think it’s appropriate for a female athlete to portray a “sex toy” in an official amateur competition (Bond Girls are 007’s sex toys after all). No politics for me……. .
Morozov said in another interview that it was a bit difficult designing programs for Miki because she was primarily a jumper. I agree with that as well and am not sure that it would make any difference even if Morozov did want to try something new with her. Especially at this (late) stage of her career.
IMO Miki has never connected well with her music. Nonetheless I really admired her when she won her first world title and thought she skated with power and attack in that competition.
This year she was just the best or 'least bad' of an uninspiring field/final flight. I had no desire to watch her program again, or any others for that matter.
"You're not working with any Americans at the moment.
I like to have a very good connection with skaters. That's why it's hard to work [with U.S. skaters]."
What is he trying to say? It's hard to have a connection with American skaters? Or just a loss in translation?
I know the interview was conducted in English(as far as anyone can tell) but maybe he just didn't know how to say what he meant better since English is not his primary language. I dunno. Just wondering.
