Author of ON TOP OF GLASS, Karina Manta will chat with Jason on Tuesday, Oct. 19! :) https://www.instagram.com/p/CVLXDINLUWU/
My book launches tomorrow, and I’m going to be celebrating with the one and only @jasonbskates!
But before I ever knew I wanted to write a book, before @jasonbskates ever became an Olympian, before we both adopted shorter haircuts, before we were both iconically known to be LGBTQs…we were prom dates!
Tomorrow night Jason and I are going to be embracing all things camp and coming-of-age on Instagram live. Tune in at 8pm eastern to join my little virtual book launch! I can’t wait to party with you all.🎉🎉🎉

Still planning to visit @RMHC’s after my #GPFigure events, just with a slight twist! I’ve reached out to @RMHBC & they’ve provided me their wishlist of items their families need most. I hope u can join me in helping the House [check] some things off! #RMHC

Fanzone article about Jason ahead of IdF:

Jason Brown Dreams of Perfect Programs

Jason's comments about his injury over the summer:

"I woke up one day and my foot was swollen and really painful, and we learned that I had an avulsion fracture in my left metatarsal," he shared. "Fortunately, I have an incredible team of people who put a plan in motion to help me stay in shape while I recovered."

Will his second and third get Jason into the GPF?

ETA: I answered my own question. It depends on Semenenko.

The Rostelecom Cup Men's field is on the weak-ish side. If Kolyada and Semenenko go 1-2, it will depend on Semeneko's score. ES would need 267.74 in total score to go to the third tie-break, which, IIRC, is highest FS score, and 267.75 to win the 6th spot outright. (His Skate Canada total is 256.01.) If Semenenko and Kolyada go 1-2, then Brown will be the first alternate. No one else at Rostelecom can beat or tie 24 total points.

Very happy for Jason. Near full credit for 4S. He left some points on table so a bigger tech score is possible. It woulld be nice of Jason to go to GPF but I almost wish he wouldn't. Allow his foot to get stonger -- not over stressing it. Maybe allow him a lower pressure event to pratice all his elements. He's a very reliable skater. Doesn't really need to prove he can do it under pressure.

Twitter Spaces Live audio recording with Jason, Meryl, Elladj & Nick McCarvel from yesterday - Jason had some really fun/funny as well as thoughtful/revealing (about his mindset 4 years ago) moments: https://twitter.com/Olympics/status/1470530505401643011
"Read on to see some of Jason's answers [transcribed from the Twitter Space live chat] below, as well. His responses have been edited for clarity and length."

From Jason's pre-Nationals media call today: https://twitter.com/olyphil/status/1473752989894651909
Asked if the upcoming U.S. Championships would be his last, Jason Brown said he has not yet made a decision but can’t wrap his mind around having his career end in a bubbled or semi-bubbled competitive environment.

ETA link to this Twitter thread that recapped his media call: https://twitter.com/AnythingGOE/status/1473756472840499208
Here's one tweet:
“I’m not staying at the host hotel, my parents have rented a car, so I’m trying to stay as distant as possible– which is hard for me but that health and safety is of the utmost importance and I just want to give as much of myself as I can to the audience in my performances.”

Philip Hersh is reporting all kinds of travel woes for Jason.

@jasonbskates
has been in travel hell all day. Was supposed to go TOR-LGA-Nashville, but now headed from LGA to Atlanta, where he plans to spend night and get to Nashville Friday (hopefully).

Brown’s mother, Marla, told me he has skates and clothes to practice in but his costumes in luggage, which is not with him. She is currently hunting at home for an old costume if necessary.

Jason has tweeted. Thanked Air Canada, American Air, and Delta for working together to help. Says it's been a really long day, but should arrive midday tomorrow if everything goes well. He posted a photo of himself on a plane. Looks like he's double masked.

What a bummer. This must be so stressful and tiring. Far from ideal. I hope it all turns out well.

Jason, you got this! His coach is traveling with him so that will be a calming element.

Can anyone more tech savvy tell me why Jason can't land a quad? I would think he could.

I am thrilled for him being chosen for Olympic team.
