Yes, I just finished watching fds.

And, surprisingly, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won this time. Even though there were no obvious mistakes in Meryl and Charlie's routine, their TES is 4 points lower. According to the protocols, they've got 4 Level 3 elements against Virtue and Moir's one.

And yes, Alex Shibutani looked rather pale through the entire dance.

fosse, I think it's fair as long as _everyone_ is put through the same situation. I believe not so many athletes live and train in CS?

Hi Guys:

I just came back from Colorado. What a wonderful trip. I am so happy to meet Swandie, Twind and Peepsrule!! We now know we are really seriously in love with Dai, aren't we?

I had a chance to talk to Utako sensei at the Hotel. I told her " Even with mistakes, Dai's performance always moves me." Utako sensei said," Thank you, he is working for the real big goal in the future. So I guess this is a right process."I also let her know that some of my Japanese friends and I went to the very spiritual place called," Garden of Gods." and we prayed for his success on quads there. Utako sensi said," Wow thanks, I will let Dai know about that." She is such a wonderful lady. I felt so happy that I was finally let her know directly how much we love Dai. It really made my day.

Hello Genki

It's so much fun reading your text :-)

So you didn't know before that you were really seriously in love with Dai? :-))))))))))) What a wonderful trip you had then :-))))

Fantastic that you had a chance to speak to Utako sensei and that you told her about the Garden of Gods!!! And great that she is going to pass it on to Dai-chan!!! Wow, that might boost his success in quads, I'm sure he is really happy when he hears about it!!!

Thank you very much for sharing Genki!!

Cheers
Gudrun.

about article
I`m tired of this "Transitions obcession"
No need to disperse through all skating rink to jump but jupms should be judged for jumps, not for entrance.

I got home from 4CC yesterday. I had a lot of fun and I didn't want it to end! I was tempted to skip the exhibition on Sunday because I didn't feel well. So glad I didn't! Dai's exhibition is unlike anything I've ever seen from him! It really seemed like he put his whole soul into that performance (not that he doesn't for his SP and LP but this was different)! Mao's program is even more beautiful in person.

Speaking of Mao, I got an autograph and photo from her at the ladies small medal ceremony. She's probably the sweetest person I have ever met. A gentle and pure soul. I tried out my limited Japanese ("konichiwa" and "arigatou gozaimasu") and I like to think she appreciated that I spoke to her in Japanese. Smile

It was very nice to meet you, Genki! Twind and peepsrule too! Great that you got to share that with Dai's coach. I think Dai would really appreciate that you all thought to pray for him.

It was a great trip.

It was very nice to see you too, and thank you, Swandie, Genki and peepsrule for making my trip so special.

I am happy for you Swandie for your conversation with Mao. I am sure she appreciated your words. And thank you Genki for your spiritual effort for Daisuke. I am happy that you could talk to Utako sensei about your prayer!

In the EX Finale, did Daisuke tried to do 4F? Such a laugh!! I didn't know he could make me happy even by falling. Very Happy The EX was more attended by locals since it was Sunday. Some lady near my seat said, (without knowing him before) "I want to bring him home!!"

I got to talk to Denice Ten and Misha Ge and found them not only extraordinarily talented but also having great personalities and kind hearts. Good luck to them for their great future.

It sure was! Was VERY nice meeting you all Genki, Swandie, and Twind. You made my first competition viewing packed with excitement. I felt that we were really lucky to have direct encounters with the skaters thanks to (?) less spectators and laid-back operation.
Without our passion for Dai, we would have never met - isn't it wild?

I found a picture of Dai with Camerlengo and Weaver/Poje and an unknown lady (judge?) at the closing dinner on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=358947550796859&set=a.354528334572114.90481.255007411190874&type=3&theater. Laughing

Hello swandie

This is a funny and strange picture at the same time :-)))

Dai seems to be in an extremely good mood looking at his gesture, eyes and widely open mouth :-) It almost looks bizarre but definetely wild :-))))

Thanks for sharing :-)

Gudrun.

Hello Shyla

Thank you very much for the link!

It's fun watching these guys on the podium and sweetest of all is definetely Dai-chan :-))))

It's my first time that I come close to liking PChan (for the way he speaks) ... but don't worry, I wouldn't swap :-)))

Cheers
Gudrun.

Hi Gudrun,

It was nice of Patrick to speak so highly about Dai and Dai's reaction was so humble
and a little embarrassed. It was so cute.

That video is fun! cheers bounce

Daisuke's in a great mood, I thought. I also liked Adam Rippon's Twitter story: that he asked his fans which ex number they wanted to see.

I've been to a similar ceremony in 2010 in Turin. When Daisuke's name was announced and he took the stage, the crowd screamed like he was Elvis Presley cheers affraid Laughing (No, I'm not exaggerating Cool )

Hello hsuhs

It's so lovely to see your icons, especially the bouncer :-))) Makes me laugh when I see them :-)

I can imagine that people get crazy when realising Dai-chan would soon enter the stage :-) He would even beat Elvis Presley - wow :-))) No one would ever think you would exaggerate, hsuhs :-)))

Your last statement is especially witty :-)))

Cheers
Gudrun.
