    News & Experiences continued

    Without wanting to start yet another pointless argument where you bray uselessly about FREEDUMB!... Yes! That is the alternative. And would be far smarter than anything else the US has done thus far. No, there isn't, because the US fcuked it up so royally from the start, and because now too...

    Stockholm Worlds 2021 Update

    Anyone who buys a ticket when they first go on sale is a fool, and if they can't get a refund I won't have much sympathy.

    What does re-opening look like?

    I went to the football for the first time since March last night. Lots of restrictions. Only 1500 of us in our stadium that holds 28000. Crowd only on the eastern side, western side closed. Minimum of two seats apart, even in the same household; every second row empty. Had to sit in your seat...

    Broadway musicals

    I need to dig out my Playbill for the show I saw in Chicago, because we had an understudy Hamilton that night and he was amazing. I didn't love Chicago's Burr, but I am loving Leslie Odom Jr so much in the recording. No wonder he won the Tony. Chris Jackson as Washington just has an unbeatable...

    Stockholm Worlds 2021 Update

    I think that that refund policy will turn a lot of potential ticket-buyers off alone. We don't even know what the world will be like in two months, let alone in eight. No-one's going to commit to buying tickets to an event they don't even know will go ahead, in a place renowned for its poor...

    Australian skating news

    I would like to hope that if we could not host in 2021 due to the 'rona the ISU would simply allocate us the next available 4CC and not force us to go through the bidding process again. The real sad point is that 2021 has the potential to be massively special for many reasons. The pre-Olympic...

    U.S. Men 2020-21 season news & updates

    Hold up, did Hersh just have an interview with Jason where he didn't ask about the quad?! :lol:

    Ciprès investigation reopened in Florida; FFSG disciplinary committee hearing scheduled

    Would the FFSG care? It's not like it's hurt Polanski's career and his is a lot more high profile. I don't think they'd care.

    U.S. Men 2020-21 season news & updates

    Phil Hersh has confirmed that Jason is finally back in Canada and quarantining! https://twitter.com/olyphil/status/1278451141970452480 Thank goodness. I was starting to get really concerned that he was going to be trapped away from TCC for months yet. He must have got some kind of special...

    Australian skating news

    The unevenness of the opening up of the states is going to be an issue also, particularly as regards Nationals which obviously is much closer than 4CC. Not sure if Victoria's rinks are open yet (though I imagine they'll be closing again if so), the ACT's rink is under renovation and won't be...

    Ciprès investigation reopened in Florida; FFSG disciplinary committee hearing scheduled

    I have no faith in FFSG to do the right thing, but a bit more hopeful for the police investigation.

    Which beloved or highly regarded skaters do you personally NOT love or highly regard??

    Oh, I forgot another to add to the list. Rippon. His sassy snarky act isn't cute, his revisionist history isn't cute ("the judges gave me a go away message in 2015 with my SP score!"...you mean that same SP where you made multiple mistakes and actually got quite a generous score?), the fact...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    The second, any second, you say "but" when it comes to sexual abuse of a minor you are defending him. He knew who she was. He knew she was thirteen years old. He knew that. He still chose to send the pic. That is no excuse. It is indefensible. It means he thought sexual content was appropriate...

    Which beloved or highly regarded skaters do you personally NOT love or highly regard??

    It definitely wasn't a popular opinion back in 2014. We must have just about been the only two saying it at the time. Everyone else was raving over Spielberg sending her a letter.

    ISU Skating Awards To Debut At 2020 Worlds

    Yes. They wanted him to have achieved a total competition score of 260. For context, a TCS of 260 would have seen him bump Kolyada for bronze at Euros that year, and pip Aaron for fifth at 4CC. Majorov had still finished 7th at Euros. It was generally agreed the standard they set was stupidly high.
