still his best Free Skate in a long time....
still his best Free Skate in a long time....
I would never pick on Tomas cause I enjoy him very very much.
And in general I m not famous for picking on skaters I dislike. When exactly I bashed Evan?
I dont even think he flails that much. At all. All i see is a very well calculation of his arms even in crossovers. Plushenko yes, he flails arms, hair and butt in all directions. But I love it. It is all his, it is his style and you just like it or not. But it all comes natural, doesnt seem like "How did Nicol showed me?I send my one arm right and my other left"
If I want to see frenetic skate(and much more) i pick a plush program, if i want to see a jazzy skater I pick Tomas, if I want to see an actor I pick Amodio or Oda, if I want to see drama i go with Weir or Taka, if i want to see something magical I choose Lambiel. Evan has come too determined this season and I m sure he will be one of the few non headcases in Olys cause he is that good, but I just cant find an originality or his soul in his skate.
At the bottom line who am I to judge, Plush has no choreo.
First things first. Skate to Carmen.
I fell off my couch after this

I dunno, I think Evan's going to do something similar to what he did at nationals 06... want it too much and make one or two little boneheaded mistakes due to lack of concentration on the step at hand and go down... I pray i'm wrong, but i'm going to be prepared this time lol
We are all so culturally challenged it is amazing I could even know one word of any foreign language.
I remember speaking with one of the many thousands of our soldiers who have kept the peace and protected your country since 1945. He told me just don't call the ladies "frau" they don't like that. He said call them "fraulein" and not to forget to offer them a chocolate bar if I wanted to get on their good side.
His advice seemed to work pretty good for me as I always had a great time in your country and even have a business partner there. His daughter was an exchange student in USA and stayed in my home for a year. We used to either call her "fraulein" or "fritzi" even though her name was Julia. She didn't seem to mind and I love this girl like she was my own daughter.
If you want to make up a story that "fraulein" is insulting , even though I did not know it, (and don't believe you) I apologize.
I sincerely apologize to all three of the "Evan bashers extraordinaire" and appreciate that two of you are typically nice to Tomas
And we can all like different skaters. I watched Evan's LP again this afternoon and thought his closing steps were the best I have seen this season. He just simply outworks other skaters, even has many triples = points in the second half of his program.
Tomas can beat any of them if he could just be more. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (fill in the blank)
Yeah, I actually thought "fräulein" was a term of endearment, sorta like "dear" is here.
Oh, everyone can make mistakes while trying to speak a foreign language, I myself did some mistakes on these boards over the time. But the Fräulein thing is not hard to find out. Look here. And no, I didn't write that article "to make a story up".
What I always found most annoying about Fräulein, is that the grammatical gender of the word is neutral. As is "Mädchen", the word for girl. It's just, a boy "der Junge" is always male - but a woman is first "das Mädchen", "das Fräulein" and finally, when she is married, she is "die Frau". Hooray, now she is allowed to be female!
This board is so educational.
From all the fraulein talk, honestly I m only upset that I didnt get the chocolate.He said call them "fraulein" and not to forget to offer them a chocolate bar if I wanted to get on their good side.
I am glad I apologized (even if it was a very strange, unbelievably longwinded apology that came with a rather dubious story attached to it.
I will call my precious Julia an apologize to her because I probably called her "fraulein" a few thousand times a week when she was living in my home.
BTW, I do know about ordering a "dry martini" in Germany. Ask for that and you will be served three vermouths Yes, I t really did happen to me
just offering up my annoyance - hate being called "young lady" - that's what I get when I'm in trouble with my parents... (though I don't get that at age 24 lol)
yes, I'm young... thank you for noticing, but age for women seems to be negative as a youth and as an elder... what is that about? it's just a number... I'd rather be known for my intellectual/personality (can't think of the word I want to use! how ironic) maturity.
Wikipedia lists "Mademoiselle". Is that offensive?
People don't even call me "little lady". They just ask for my ID card...
And Senorita in spanish!
Now I am offended. Not a single picture to honor me in wikipedia?:sheesh:
