    Good timing. Look what I just posted in the obsession thread.

    This actually isn't too crazy, but: By 2016, the now "veterans" in the men's field (Javi, Yuzu, Machida) will be overshadowed by a new rivalry: Adian Pitkeev vs. Nam Nguyen, who head into Pyeongchang as our era's Brian vs. Brian/Yagudin vs. Plushenko/insert famous rivalry. They will repeat the Browning vs. Petrenko history--one of them edges the other out of all World titles heading into the Olympics... but bombs at the Games, leaving the other one to win OGM. Now "old veterans" Yuzu/Javi/Machida sneak onto the podium because the co-favourite bombed and ended up in sixth place.

    I would not consider Yuzu as an "old veteran" in 2016 but anyways, I predict the following:

    1) Yuzu will win 2/4 World Championships in the next quad
    2) Han Yan will medal at next year's WC with a bronze medal
    3) Patrick Chan will make a comeback in 2018 and surprisingly, win Gold
    4) Denis Ten will win one WC
    5) Javier will win another WC

    It's the crazy predictions thread. Did you expect me to be logical?

    Here's a nutty one:

    So Youn Park wins OGM over a Russian fave in Pyeongchang.

    The veteran who's been the most consistent in the quad gets the bronze ... how about Kiira?

    So the podium will be:

    G - Park (KOR)
    S - [Yulia or Proklova or Medvedeva or Liza T] (RUS)
    B - Korpi (FIN)

    ... and the discussion of controversial judging, part 2, takes place.

    I'm going to run and hide now!

    ^that's not so crazy... except for the Kiira winning bronze part.

    New one: Brian Joubert finds a pairs partner and begins competing for France starting in the 2015-16 season. He announces that their free program will be set to the music of... The Matrix.

    *runs*

    1, 2, 5 dont fit well into this thread as they are not at all crazy, and could all easily happen. 3 and 4 fit well as those are indeed crazy, and you would have called a very unlikely one if either one somehow happens.

    When did Javier win his first WC?

    Unfortunately, that portion of your prediction... is not that crazy... Joubert doing the Matrix, would that shock anyone?

    ^Yeah, craziest part of the prediction is that it's... not crazy. I almost posted this in the "Predictions for the favourite skaters next season" thread, except I don't think Joubert would actually start competing in pairs by 2014-15. The uncertainty is whether Joubert can find a partner (I hope he does!) and if he can convince his partner to do the Matrix with him (Umm... I'm torn on this. A part of me is groaning, but another part finds it utterly hilarious and almost wants him to do it to piss people off ).

    If that happens I would be on the floor laughing to the point of tears.
