    Brian Joubert

    Some of us on the Plushy fan thread have agreed that Brian deserves a thread too.

    And since Brian is my second favourite skater after Plushy, I decided to start it.

    We can look back at his career that was - and look forward to what is to come. This post is just to set the initial ball rolling; more "proper" posts to follow no doubt!

    So the rumors are true: Brian and Katarina will perform together in Plushenko's "The Snow King"!

    Why - are they bad? Should I be sad or glad that I can't see them?

    Also, I suppose I should have also said in my initial post that we will also - incidentally, and almost inadvertently as it were - be contemplating Brian's better than "good average" looks.

    Though I must say that the photo chosen for the below article certainly might not lead you to believe that:


    LMDJ@MaisonDeJoubert · 29 aug
    #BrianJoubert and Katarina Gerboldt @1katarinochka will participate as a pair in Christmas show of @EvgeniPlushenko
    http://itar-tass.com/sport/1408309

    (Note: 'Tis the same as in the Plushy thread.)

    How they were able to dig up such an unflattering photo of Brian I don't know...

    Some extracts from the article (via Googletranslate):

    ""While Brian has signed contracts (for performances in a number of shows), the term of which will be completed by early 2015, and fully train Katarina he can not, - said Vasilyev. - But skaters have been invited to try their hand at the show, a fairy tale" Snow King ", which is preparing for the New Year two-time Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko. In my opinion, this is also a great opportunity to work together. And whether athletes qualify for the highest sports result in the pair will be known in the spring.""

    &:

    "Information that Joubert is going to train a group of famous Russian coach Oleg Vasiliev paired with Gerboldt, appeared in July of this year. However, as it turned out, the skater, who had previously played in figure skating, there are obligations to the TV France - September he should act in a series of television shows, as well as a similar event in Japan."

    That's a lovely photo!

    Extravagant? So Plushy is not in all black then, I gather?

    Twitter pic for the Instagram-less (not the best quality, but I'll post more if I find them)

    Plushy looks kind of like...a shiny silver Bowser from the Super Mario games? I dig it though...it's a children's fairy tale show, after all, so any normal rules about skating costumes (such as they are) don't really apply, in my opinion. Not sure what Brian's role is meant to be.

    *bursts in to thread* Did someone say Brian Joubert?! I'm so glad he's finally got his own thread! His 2007 World's performance is the reason I got in to figure skating. I randomly saw his James Bond SP in a pizza parlor of all places and found it so intriguing that I looked it up when I got home.

    That's me, I know. Thanks - you're a true friend!

    On first seeing the costumes: Wow!

    sort of speechless - and then:

    You know what? I think I like. "Extravagant" was definitely the right word - they sort of grow on me - every time I look at them, I like them better. Yeah, it's a fairy tale show - it should be a bit larger than life, imaginative, out of the ordinary, magical...

    Yay! Another Brian fan to join us! I'm so glad!

    Yes, maybe this was the perfect time for a Brian thread after all?
