    Yes,, these are the Yoshida articles. I always enjoy his writings. I put highlights in the Jason Brown Fan Fest page too. There was a lot of other information (for both Jason and Shoma), but a lot of it was a summary of their previous year (competitions of Shoma and recovery from injury for Jason).

    This is the copy of International Figure Skating that has a really nice cover photo of Yuzu in his new FS costume.

Slightly OT, but my favorites at SC were MEN - Yuzu and Patrick, LADIES - Rika and Kaetlyn Osmond (CAN), PAIRS - Duhamel and Radford (CAN) & Denney & Frazier (USA), ICE DANCE - Gilles & Poirier (CAN) and Chock & Bates (USA). For the most part, it was not a good competition for Americans. I was hoping Mirai Nagasu was going to medal, but it wasn't meant to be...I will PM you more details about your favorite.

    In the new news clips where they are going to Rostelcom, it looks like Shoma got another haircut! Honestly, between that hair and his pink fingernail polish, he must spend a lot of time at the salon! In that photo I took of him at Glacier, his hair is really wild looking...Hope he has a positive experience at Rostelcom.
    He really isnt interested in his looks!
    I find his latest hair is really nice.

    Is this the capture from the newsclip of Rostelcom?

    Yes, the hair is looking good now! It's so funny that he isn't interested in his looks. He doesn't have to work too hard to look nice! Yes that looks like Rostelcom, and the practices should be starting in a few hours. Hopefully we'll hear a little bit of news about how things are going.

    That store that I was mentioning (Mitsuwa) is not near Glacier. Maybe I could volunteer to drive them there?!...We were discussing height, I am about 157 cm. You must feel like you are in the land of the giants! My cousin's son is 183 cm., and when he was in Korea, people kept asking if they could take their picture with him! He finally had to stop agreeing to it, because he was spending his vacation having his picture taken!

    Oh, U.S. Nationals - can't even think about it!

    News comes!
    he is in good condition. He says both quads have nice quality and has high success ratio. About Javi, he doesnt think he can beat him, but he tries to achive what he can do now. He is aiming for the title.

    I don't speak Japanese but I think they said he hit 100% of his quad flips in practice.

    Their vlogs always make me laugh. And at about 2:08 were the two ladies sitting next to us. So funny. We were there watching the Shibs sign autographs but didn't get in the line. They are SO awesome. Alex is a giant next to Shoma.

    The new practice green shirt -- that's the one he was wearing at Glacier. https://pic.twitter.com/hf6FiWbJZB He's looking strong.

    ^^Thank you so much to everyone who posted fun videos, etc...Getting ready to do my Rostelcom predictions. Hmmm. What to do? What to do? I'm seeing that most people have Javi and Shoma as the top two, and I'm guessing more have Javi as number one. With the riskiness of the men's programs, who knows who will skate clean?! Accchhh! Ice is slippery.

    I love it! I'm trying to decide whether to go with my head or my heart at this point, and what IS my head and/or heart?! Such decisions! Having seen Shoma at Japan Open, Lombardia, and SA, I feel like I have a better picture of where he is with his programs. Have only seen Javi's FS at Japan Open, and I'm sure he has worked on it a lot since then. Also have no idea what the revamped Malaguena SP looks like...Oh well, enough agonizing. It's only a game!

    May the best man win, I say. I don't have any preference as long as Shoma makes GPF and that shouldn't be a problem, am I right?

    Absolutely. Really love seeing good skating...Hate to admit it, but I am still trying to figure out how DO they make the final?!

    I think skaters are scored according to their ranks in the events they compete, and then the six highest scores go to the GPF. Please, correct me if I'm wrong

    Did you listen to the Ice Talk podcast? FWIW, they think Shoma will probably beat Javi because Shoma's already in strong competitive shape and has already won a Sr B and Skate America, while this is Javi's first competition of the season (except for Japan Open, where Shoma beat him).
