    The pants are the least of their problems. The music! Having to listen to that music was like getting my nails pulled out one by one. Yikes.

    I always like it when the costumes are not distracting from the skating. Unfortunately Trankov's costume/pants is.

    The Musical Jesus Christ Superstar is basically lets take Jesus's story and move it to the sixties. As such pants are appropriate.. I really think brown pants would be a better idea.

    "Some people say, 'No, you cannot wear yellow pants.' I say, 'Why not?' And they cannot explain why not.
    Exactly!

    People are always telling me I can't do things. But they never can explain why. So screw them. Go Trankov! and your pants!

    I think the pants are good,
    They make for a very distinctive look .

    It was funny how the Eurosport commentator said that she usually looks at the woman with pairs, But she couldn't take her eyes off of him

    I find it wrong. Diva-Trankov steals the show from Volosozhar instead of being her partner (not that it's a big news). It is even more wrong in their SP where he is supposed to be courting her (at least this is how I got the idea behind their SP) instead of showing off himself.

    Back to the main topic of this thread, really can't understand why people made such a big deal of (and such PR to) his pants. Hotárek's ones were even more yellow in SP.
    Me personally, I think, they look OK, looked better at SA than at Nebelhorn (maybe live their colour looks a bit different though)

    P.S. The Twitter is hilarious, thanks to whoever did that (I guess he/she is reading FSU).

    The problem is not just the pants, but the pants + headband + facial hair

    The pants look awesome live....now just got to fix the mismatch between some parts of choreography and the music (aka the deathspin sequence).

    What really looks disgusting is the color of his SP military outfit--it looks identical to Russian "militia" or "policia" of today. Forget all allusions to the 19th Century!

    Oh, no, no, no, no. Hotarek's pants >>>>>>> Trankov's pants. Hotarek's are a fun playful yellow and fit the theme of the program. Trankov's look like he's been walking for 40 years in the desert and peeing in them.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Everyone knows headbands win OGMs.

    It was only 40 days and 40 nights. If I'm remembering my Bible correctly. Which I very well may not be.

    Get ahead, get a headband innit.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
