Boss, I hate to break it to you, but RUS Fed choose Semenenko over Mosalev for Euros….:(
Really? I thought they would send Mozalev to Euros at least. He has done pretty well this season. 2nd in the Team Trainwreck Olympics held at Golden Spin. The 7th place at IDF, maybe, cost him? But he was 2nd in the free there.

I think maybe a mistake. At the least, Mozalev could use the experience; and they could always have put Semenenko on the Olympic team anyway if it went badly. (Let's be honest, it will probably go badly. I mean, it's Europeans with Aymoz and Brezina and Rizzo and Kolyada. The team trainwreck potential--as at every other international men's event this season--is infinite).

As Mom says, "With the men, it's all starting from scratch whenever they go to a new event anyway."

Grassl is boring enough that he might be a problem.

Finally caught up on everything today.

:cheer2::cheer2::cheer2: for Higuchi! I love this Lion King program, and that reaction at the end of her free skate was totally Mirai-2018 worthy.

Tuk, I'm quite proud of. Stay healthy & well trained. One ill-timed covid positive test or particularly disastrous skate at Europeans and that Olympic berth could happen. Be ready if they need you. And, regardless, this was a great sendoff from Nationals.

Well-known Superstar Jesus kid’s message after victory ceremony. He thanks Sokolovskaya for the road they’ve walked together, and says the victory could not have happened without her. He thanks the different specialist on the coaching team and then I think he says he doesn’t know what destiny holds in the future, but he’s happy for the opportunities.

(Btw Sokolovskaya’s pink outfit is everything😍)

Speaking of thread title, maximum chaos, we need some pairs or dance team to do a "Witcher" program, complete with a flowing silver mane.

The other day I was looking at the title of this thread and wondering idly what one result at US Nationals would result in Maximum Chaos. Maybe Alysa Liu finishing off the podium? Or multiple ill-timed positive Covid tests? What do all of you think?

Multiple ill-timed positive crud tests, for sure. With the way the Selection Criteria is written, all Alysa needs is to finish Top 5 to book her ticket. Maybe K/F finishing 6th while C-G/L and LuMit go 1-2?

What would be Maximum Chaos for Canadians? Matte/Ferland and Walsh/Michaud going 1-2 of the eligible pairs? And then M-T/M and J/R? Or one of the Canadian ladies lacking the TES mins winning?

Yaroslav makes the Olympic team. Ok, maybe this is wishful thinking.

Or is he still not eligible? I remember seeing that he advanced toward citizenship in some way but maybe I'm mixing up a step on the road with reaching the destination.

Also, I admit he isn't as polished as some of the alternatives but he's so fun.

He's eligible.


If both Paniot and Dmitriev were on the podium (pewter or higher), I think that both USFS and GSD would have a complete meltdown. 🙏

For NBC, anyone but Nathan winning would likely be chaos.

I don't see USFS dumping Alysa in any way, shape or form. Or Knierim/Frazier :yawn: . Isabeau winning would not mean anything other than USFS is pushing a talented newbie, as she isn't Olympic eligible anyway. Now if Gracie had the two most unlikely skates of her life and the comeback of this new decade, that would be a spectacle. Of course, that is about as likely as Camden winning the men's event. 😛

If that happens we will know who spoke it into existence 😂

A few months from now: how did @Vagabond get banned from USFSA events…? 🤔

Indeed no😢

I would love to take the train elsewhere, I’ll book my ticket right away. To what station do you suggest we should be heading, operator driver @SamuraiK ?

Well since most here are no longer youngings, perhaps Facebook? XD A private group would be nice. It will also permit plenty of insta stalking XD

Whatssap groups for immediate chat / gossip / news will be great but no for competition time in order to avoid spoiling people who are watching in delay.

I think Alysa is doing her best to cause maximum chaos before Nationals even starts. :lol:
FYI - Alysa is doing a live IG right now and has debunked the new SP rumors. Flat out said that it's not true. And said she only did the IG Live today to make this known.

Btw, I love her common sense and humor. People were asking what she was eating (cantaloupe & honeydew) and she told them watermelons and blueberries. Lololol.

aaaaagh, please don't make me go back to facebook for #ttw! I'd vote for a discord, but that's probably just me. :lol:

Discord would be awesome. For fellow middle aged ppl here like me, I can tell you that it’s easier than it sounds if you’re not already familiar with it.

Seriously, which is a weird thing to be in TTW, one of the best experiences I have ever had watching skating was CS Austria, with the maybe 5 people, starring alchemy_void giving great pbp and asking for custom post it drawings.
