the occasional disconnect between Ashley Wagner's brazen talk and her actual skating (as in when she tweeted "war paint" right before her LP at nationals and then proceeded to bomb her LP)...don't get me wrong, I'm often glad that Ashley says things that others are thinking but are just too afraid to say...however, she seems clueless sometimes about how funny it is that she talks herself up to be this warrior princess and then goes on to two foot most of her landings or fall over under pressure...hilarious!!!!
Miki Ando's comeback- sure, it's fine for Miki to have tried to make a comeback...but really, it was a pretty awful comeback...hilarious in its stiffness, slowness, interpretive deadness
Nothing, really- the judging all season was amusing only in its flagrant disregard for fairness, accountability or sensibility; sadly, it was not shocking that the Sochi results were what they were...if you were tracking the inflation of the scores for certain skaters all season, it was obvious that certain (Russian) skaters were going to win at the Olympics regardless of how good they were...sadly, not shocking at all what happened
in 4S we trust
Amused: -Javi's aerobic program
- this http://tinypic.com/r/245d5zr/8 "SO CLOSE!!"
- some reactions (Maxim Trankov, Scott Moir at OG, C/L at worlds)
Shocked (negatively): -V/T at europeans
-Mao's SP in Sochi
(positively): -S/K (and not S/S) got the silver medal in Sochi
-C/L world champions
Shocking: in Britain, no BBC coverage of Europeans or Worlds, even though Coomes/Buckland ended up as bronze medallists in Euros.
Go sonograms & silver foxes
Amused - Misha Ge at the Olympics and on social media , the "bromance" between Yuzuru and Javier (and Pooh), Johnny & Tara's daily wardrobes
Surprised - how refreshing and relatively drama-free the Worlds competition was compared to Sochi
