I am drunk after our Christmas party but I cannot stand for TTW members cheering for Katsalapov. He is a trash person. I will let cheering for Liza go despite the fact that she hasn’t skated within 5 feet of the boards her entire senior career, but people who are ok with a guy who hits his partner need to take a long hard look at themselves.
Name it the HungerGames please
THANK YOU! I feel like this isn’t talked about nearly enough. Although we don’t have proof, I’m inclined to believe the altercation did occur, and I haven’t forgotten. Nikita may be an excellent skater, but as a person, he’s an ass.
Yes, Katsalapov would be a perfect addition to the endless Med/Zag discussion thereI feel like the Russia thread is a better place to have the Katsalapov debate?
Pair skating is an extreme sport. Athletes wear helmets for speed skating, skiing and snowboarding. They should be wearing helmets for pair skating and maybe even ice dancing. Enough of these concussions!Adrenaline and training got her through the program but there needs to be new training that hits to the head should be treated differently. I think we need to change the way we think of these things. Oh look one second you're unconscious on the ice and few moments later you're doing a death spiral where arch of the back is a thing you're supposed to do. She was so shaky at the end of the program, that I was shocked they did bows.
Helmets cannot prevent all concussions.Pair skating is an extreme sport. Athletes wear helmets for speed skating, skiing and snowboarding. They should be wearing helmets for pair skating and maybe even ice dancing. Enough of these concussions!
Bossman GPF Ice Dance RD recap:
Z/G - #notlast
And you have every right to be super proud of them!For now!
6th is great, 6th out of the whole GP circuit (thank you P/C), I am happy with that, given the nature of Tiff's knee injury and the impact it's had on preparing for this season that almost meant this season didn't happen!
This time last year, TJ were just hoping for 4th at Nationals, so 6th at the GP finals would've been an impossible dream back then!
I still cannot believe what an incredible year 2018 has been for TJ, Euros, Olympics, Worlds and now the GP finals, it is just unbelievable!
Voronov: ITA Kolyada : I'm trying to divert the Skate Gods. Brezina: It was the air guitar to ACDC that did it.Bossman GPF Men FS recap:
Voronov - That was boring. Sorry. Despite @rfisher 's constant cursing we all know Kolyada will make it in the end alongside Samarin and maybe/hopefully our boy, while Voronov is even denied Universiade due to age
Brezina - 2 new costumes? Boy tasted blood This entire look is so 90's, but who cares I could see @alchemy void and @rfisher fangirling hard at this moment! Euros will be fun If that boy kicks himself out of the train this time by medaling I will be so
