Anyone who says that ice skating is a sport continues to kid themselves. Seriously.

Poor Akiko, she must be gutted.

Don't worry

Kim Yuna will set aside her singing, acting and tv career and come back to snatch a gold medal at the 2014 olympics.

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

The ending of the NHK Cup was just bizarre. How the judges gave Mao a higher score than Mirai, even though she doubled almost every single jump, I'll never understand. That's skating. All their efforts to make the judging less subjective have failed.

The look of shock on Mao's face when she saw her score was hilarious. At least, Suzuki was better mannered in defeat than some skaters have been in the past (Surya, I'm talking about you. She always did get short-changed in the scoring, though).

Well I'm happy for Mirai. She kept it together through both her programs. Now she just has to work on speed and improving her jumps so she doesn't get downgraded ALL THE DAMN TIME!

The men's final was weird, too. Hanyu melted on the ice and yet he was so far ahead after his brilliant short program, it didn't even matter. I don't know what happened to Javier, but I enjoyed Daisuke's skate.

Like I said, very weird end to the event.

I didn't see the pairs event at all. In the dance, I find that I really hate the music by the Russian team of Ilynkh and Katsalapov, with all the voice overs, and the excessive dramatics from the two skaters. Also, it seems as though they should be in the pairs competition. I still hate that one spin invented by Tamara Moskvina that I call the egg beater. Some of that should be left to pairs skating and not dance. Blecch.

I haven't seen the entire competition yet. I just watched Mao's long program and yes she missed a lot of the jumps but her overall quality of skating is first-rate. Once I see Akiko and Mirai's programs and see the protocols I will be better able to overall assess the competition. Mirai is known for underrotating her jumps and Akiko was way down after the short program..

It doesn't change the fact that Kim was consistently overscored..

As someone who thinks both Kim and Asada suck most of the time, I think Kim definitely sucks a little bit more.

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

You guys, US Nationals are in Omaha this season (where I live). I HAVE to find out a way to go to at least one session because when will I have an opportunity like this again? But I'm sure the tickets are ridiculously expensive and I'm beyond destitute.

Volunteer as an arena gatekeeper (not admission)? From the layout below, they might need about 50 gatekeepers per session. Email them for more details here http://www.2013uschampionships.com/volunteer/.

Aww thanks for the help but I'm not trying to work.

Hopefully my bf wins the lottery and can buy us some tickets.

That's the thing. I don't really have a female skater I adore at the moment and haven't for years. Of the current crop I like Ando, a few of the Russians and hope they keep improving, and I liked Nagasu and Zheng before puberty hit them like bricks and they nosedived. The 2006 Olympics were the last female competition I was really into.

What's wrong w.Ando the last year she competed she won two Grand Prix assignments and won the gold at Worlds that year. She took off the entire 2011-2012 season and she supposedly delayed her return cuz she's looking for a new coach. I'm not really sure what the very latest is w.her, but if shes not hurt and she's motivated she's definitely a factor.

Yes. You know this. I love Miki. She's so Michelle to me, but I appreciate Miki's full use of her talent. She may not be as gifted as some of her competition, but Miki outfought 98% of them and now has two World titles to her name. I respect that immensely. Plus there is no doubt she was improving artistically before her hiatus. I maintain her winning short program is one of the best in the last half-decade.

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

Sorry, you know I have the memory of a goldfish. She has had some good short programs, but most of her long programs are jump-jump-jump. And she doesn't have the beautiful basic skating or good posture either.

I was happy when she denied Yu-Na Overscore a World title two seasons ago.
