    Figure skating in the United States is on thin ice

    It's utterly laughable that people in the US are still counting on cable TV to provide interest to a spectator sport.

    U.S. Ladies [#29]: Skating with Adjusted Vision

    You are hyped because you are good. Wagner was never hyped because she was not a great junior and not really that brilliant of a senior either. Gracie Gold hardly had a junior career but the hype she got once she entered world scene was definitely merited. Hyping really has nothing to do with...

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    Strange mistake to make. Not at all suspicious...

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    Khuda is better off with an older senior guy. Vadim is still a boy and won’t have senior success soon. He should look at Russian junior girls. Same goes to Avonley. I had not thought of Baker but this could work. Baker’s partner (and ponomarenko’s partner) are not remotely at their level.

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    That boy is very talented. He has a better chance making it in Russia than the US. Citizenship is unlikely to happen in time.

    Sport24: Aleksandra Trusova leaving Tutberidze for Plushenko

    Valieva, Usacheva et al. are mainly coached by Rozanov no? Maybe a few more will follow him away. And I always thought Danil prefers Kostornaya...

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Age limit change is the silliest idea. So absurd. I'm in awe of people who talk about it as if it weren't entirely jealousy-driven. Besides, Eteri's 17 year olds dominate too. 18 and 19 year olds, sometimes. While we haven't much evidence beyond that, the podium places are locked down anyway...

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Great news for Khuda. Bazin is a fine, sexy skater who was just dancing by himself mostly. I thought he was going to get Annabel Morozov. Khuda is even better. Filatov wasn't getting anywhere close to her divaness. Now someone needs to skate with Nazarov...Nazarov and Reviya are the only two...

    Catching up with Evan Lysacek on the 10th anniversary of his Olympic Gold

    Lysacek is a baffling person and skater. These well-crafted supremely expensive PR articles can't even give him any personality and you wonder why they bothered to plug these stories at all. Such is what baffles me about people who run in the "society" circle I suppose. What annoys me about...

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Everybody knows Russian men are hopeless drunks. Russian women do all the work AND outlive their male counterparts by a good 30 years. To call Trusova a man is certainly an insult, that she will crash and burn like a Kovtun let's say, no?

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Some Americans I know intentionally go to Canada to give birth so the kid can have dual citizenship. As we have seen in pairs/dance this can come in handy in the future. In any case ilinykh and polunin seem happy together. Mom

    Sinitsina/Katsalapov for Russian media: 'Our happiness is incomplete'

    I like Nikita but totally hate all of S/K's programs so far. P/C's FD this season is mediocre, but still miles ahead of the bland vanilla content Zhulin sets out for S/K year after year. This FD doesn't even have a point. (Does Zhulin have a bizarro story for this one? I dunno.) He has become...

    U.S. Ladies [#28]: Achieving 2020 Vision

    Bell has always deserved more PCS than she was getting. That being said not a single one of her jumps last night had good flow out.

    News and updates à la Française, part trois

    Cocaine use is so common. I know at least a handful of habitual cocaine users who seem to keep it together except for the constant sniffing part. It is what it is. Many including me have done it while clubbing. I do not personally care for “clean sport”. Athletes are human too and they deserve...

    From Russia with Love [#35]: Winter 2019

    Sotnikova did have great skating skills. Better than Kostornaya in some ways (speed and power, for example). People complained about her posture but it never bothered me any.
