    Samokhvalov's interview with Gleikhengauz

    Have multiple skaters left Perron and then returned? Nah, didn’t think so.

    Samokhvalov's interview with Gleikhengauz

    Bullshit. Would you say the same about gymnasts who left and then returned to the Karolyis in the 80s and early-90s? Athletes (and people in general) leave and then return to abusive situations all the time, especially when one coach has all of the political power to make or break their career.

    Trusova has even less.

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    You are so right, Ms. Bottems. I’m not sure what people here were expecting to see at a casino. People smoke and drink while they gamble, and neither can be done with a mask. It’s also impossible to police mask compliance in an arena. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people in both the...

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    It’s funny, because when I look at B&S with an IJS lens, I see a team with easy lifts that covered very little ice, a weak death spiral, and a split twist that would have received negative GOE every single time. It’s a shame that S&P went back to Love Story for the Olympics. Both Tristan &...

    I think Shirene Human is more likely to come out of retirement.

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    The airport is very close to the arena, so if you have TSA precheck, you could probably still see at least half of the gala before you leave for the airport.

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    Yes, that “scheduling conflict” would be called NBC telling USFS what time windows they had available for live broadcasts.

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    Yes, I assume free dance and ladies’ free will be 11am-3pm on Sunday, with the exhibition later Sunday evening. I’ve booked a 7pm flight Sunday night and am hoping I won’t have to miss any of the ladies’ free.

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    No, this will allow a live window on NBC on Sunday afternoon for the ladies’ free skate.

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - Day Fifteen (7 August)

    Sydney 2000 was September 15-October 1. After Sydney, NBC said they would no longer pay big money if the Games weren’t held in July or August. That’s why Brisbane is the host for 2032 instead of Melbourne or Sydney - it’s the only Australian city with the weather to be able to host in July/August.

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - Day Fourteen (6 August)

    Plus two individual silvers in the 200 behind someone with a questionable doping history…

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - Day Thirteen (5 August)

    The U.S. won 6 medals in Calgary. Gold for Boitano and Bonnie Blair, silver for Eric Flaim, and bronze for Watson/Oppegard, Debbi Thomas, and Blair.

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - Day Thirteen (5 August)

    The U.S. currently has 16 medals in track & field with 3.5 days of finals left to go. They’re not winning many events, but they’re still likely to win about 30 medals overall. I wouldn’t call that a nightmare - this is still going to be better than 2008 and 2015 Worlds.
