Ice dance capellini lenot or pechalat bourzat for bronze?
P/B:yay: I looooove french dancers.
Pairs LP at Vancouver 2010 or at Sochi 2014?
They're equal. Think about it: The gold medals went to worthy teams who gave underwhelming long programs. The silvers went to under-the-radar teams who hit on the right night. And the bronze.....two disasters by S/S. :
Best triple axel:
That sounds about right. : for S/S
They both have massive 3 a! I would go for Yuzuru's since he can do pretty much anything with 3a--transition, amazing combo.
Best pair throw jump:
V/T's 3loop throw
S/S's 3flip throw
1) 2014 LP
2)generally speaking, V&T's throw 3loop; in the 2014 Oly, S&S's throw 3 flip
Quad triple toe- Chan or Hanyu?
Best Quad Sal:
Javier Fernández López
Best triple lutz Viktoria Volchkova or Julia Sebestyen?
they were both awesome but I'll go with Granny on account of her relative consistency.
Other great lutzes:
Yu-Na Kim (the coverage )
Sarah Meier (those toe picks )
Tonya Harding (Jurassic proportions )
Denise Biellman ("women aren't supposed to be able to do that" )
Nancy Kerrigan (textbook. )
Ksenia Doronina (Crapova Tano style )
Ballet or Theater?
If you had magic powers and could guarantee one of these skaters go clean in tomorrow's SP, who would you pick?
I want Chan to win but skating needs a clean SP for Takahashi more.
Belita. Katherine was yuppy trash according to that one fluff piece. P)
Evil aliens have forced you to stick a metaphorical fork in one of the following. Who do you pick?
Weir (as a commentator)
Buttle + Unknown husbands marriage
Frank Carroll's coaching career
Rohene Ward's choreography
Buttle + Unknown husbands marriage ( never liked Buttle much... )
Who will be the next OG gold medalist?
Chan (I love Hanyu but I think Chan will win)
Scott & Sandra OR Johnny & Tara as commentators?
You've just outed yourself as eville
I prefer Johnny the Joke & Trashy Tara. Scott and Sandra belong to another era....
What do you think?
I really don't have preference. I rather search for european feeds where I cannot understand a thing they say and fully rejoice in skating itself
Tara and Scott would make better duo I guess.
Whose performance at men's SP at Sochi was more inspired and shocking in a great way?
I avoid them too, actually. Austrian feed is :kickass
Joubert for the comeback voids (STICK IT Didier ) With a clean long program, he may secure the necessary endorsements to fund the launch of his porno career. (I'm his agent )
Did Plushenko fake it?
No. I seriously doubt it, at any rate. At worst, he'd be guilty of "faking" something that was real to begin with (and again, I really don't think that's the case here).
More bittersweet for you as a viewer:
figure skating at the Vancouver Olympics
figure skating at the Sochi Olympics so far
purple what is this "bittersweetness" of which you speak?
I think Sochi needs to be over before I can honestly answer that but I will still say it looks to be Sochi so far.
Should women's ice hockey be cut from the Olympics?
WTF? No, those women are vicious and awesome
Who will pull a Peter Liebers-like surprise and end up in the final flight?
So Youn Park
Best substitute for purple in this thread's poll?
Should bars open early for the Olympic hockey:
Right. If there's room for a twelfth option in 2018 saint, Kwan will appear in the next ToT Olympic poll.
Sure, why not?
I voted falling_dance! PURPLE!!
Oh man, that's a tough subject. Pass. My initial reaction is a resounding NAY but then when you think about children suffering and in pain...I pass.
On to lighter things...
Regular milk (dairy)
Kwan's 1998 Olympic LP
her 1998 World Pros TP?
1998 World Pro...I doth swoon for both!
