Here "balls" means courage, right? As in, Mao Asada has the balls to attempt a triple Axel?The "man" implies just a gender. While the "Man" means the character. Like the one who has balls to challenge quads.
I agree with this interpretation of the Manliness of quads. There is nothing about pirouetting in the air per se that is particularly "manly" in the small m sense. A "manly" sport would be cutting off the heads of ogres with a battle axe.
I have never understood quite what this "stepping in" might consist of. is the suggestion that Pisseev should have called up Cinquanta and told him to rig the computer to give Plushenko 5 more points? That's the trouble with wuz-robbing. After the scores are in, it's too late.Originally Posted by Rodnina
