    What Amused or Shocked You This Season

    This is meant to be fun not serious like the ladies Sochi final but newsb that made you go r or or I guess I was shocked to hear aliona wants another four years to have a shot at Korea. Seems crazy delusional to me to ruin an incredible legacy with Robin. Also shocked and a bit funny that Johnny can still shock me with his Mike Tyson behavior getting him dumped. Thought he'd blow it but really even for Weird it is weird.

    Under the people don't change category I happened upon the 20 year espn interview of Tonya and after she lies, whines, takes no responsibility as always and even comments that Nancy was a whiner to complain about a silver medal. I was amazed at her comments on the woman who she tried to disable. Apparently she still does not remember facts like her handwriting was verified on the scrap of paper found. It was really revealing because she all but says Nancy deserved it. Tonya can still shock me.

    What made you laugh or gasp this year in the crazy sport of fs?

    Hanyu's reaction to winning Gold in Sochi...in his accented English.
    "I'm First? I'm the First???? Oh My GOOOOOOOOD! OMGGGGG!" Keels over, gets up, rubs chest a few times. "I was so surprised..." deep breaths "Ok..."

    - Sonitkova got the OMG -
    - Aliona changes partner, aim for another 4 years.
    - Hanyu won both OMG and WC. and he finally landed that 4S and perform a relatively clean long program.
    - Plushy withdrew and retired for good

    Yeah, I never expected Sotnikova to get the OGM, even though I thought she might have been on the podium after Euros. Aliona continuing is very shocking, too. Aside from Plushy's withdrawal, another big shock in the men's event was Jeremy Abbott's terrible fall, but luckily that didn't end too badly.

    ^ This for most amusing.

    Most shocking: Mao's Olympic SP which took her out of medal contention and Yuna getting the OSM. Was really expecting the OGM to go to either of these two ladies. Regardless, both of them are legends.

    Mao's Olympic SP was a huge shock to me, same with Sotnikova's OGM, knew someone from Russia would be propped up for a medal but to go as far as that lol

    1. So Youn Park earning 2 spot for Korea was definitely a shock! Never thought Korea would accomplish such thing without Yuna Kim.

    2. Mao having a breakdown at the Olympics. I honestly did not see that coming.

    3. Carolina medaling

    On the other hand..

    1. Sochi was a joke.
    2. PCS was a joke.
    3. Adelina's gala at Sochi

    Most shocking for me was Mao's breakdown in the olympic SP and her comeback in the FS. I didn't expect her to go down so hard after the season she was having nor did I expect her to comeback with the skate of her life in the FS.

    Mao's SP meltdown and LP redemption in Sochi. I really thought she'd be in it for gold.
    Adelina finishing ahead of Julia. I completely counted her out. Julia has this "star quality" at least for me that I don't see as much in Adelina.
    The ladies results. But I won't harp on about that.
    Plushenko pulling out after the warmup. I thought he would have done it with enough time to send in a replacement.
    Jeremy and Max getting 3 spots for 2015! Shocked in a good way.
    The fact that my coworkers all know who Meryl and Charlie are.

    File under "shocking":

    - Ladies podium in Sochi
    - Mao's performances in Sochi
    - Tuktamysheva not being a factor at all this season when in fall 2011 she was considered the anointed one for Russia for 2013/14
    - The dance podium at worlds
    - Stolbova / Klimov coming out of seemingly nowhere to take silver AND a team gold when they were an afterthought just six months ago
    - Smirnov's injury and that frightening video (I seriously thought it would literally paralyze him) just before the season started (I still feel bad for him but especially for Yuko)
    - Oda making a mighty comeback in the fall, even winning a GPF medal, only to not get placed on the Japanese national team
    - S Y Park's top 10 at worlds (great job!)
    - Ten seemingly down for the count but then peaking at the right time to win Olympic bronze
    - Javi's last jump in Sochi receiving 0 points, which knocked him off the podium completely
    - Aljona wanting to continue and Robin's abrupt exit right after worlds
    - I/K split rumors
    - Martinez getting to OG when the Philippines never even had a skater before

    It was certainly not the way people thought it would shake down, but it was never dull!
