Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Good news I found out that Sofia T hasn't skated yet at the Zhiguli competition, she'll be skating in the competition that starts at 3:15pm Moscow time and goes 'til after 5pm. I don't think I'll be able to watch dang, but if any of you guys are interested the stream is here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=wvwEKnOSd4g

In other news Plushy posted the little video of him and Mishin chatting at Rostelecom!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIINjImqpPf - And if Google Translate is accurate it looks like the Professor was giving advice! Awww, I feel much better now. Mishin is wise, I'm sure he had lots of helpful words.

Bonus Sasha P Sheningans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIIOq55IZ-v - No idea what's going on here, but Sasha is so cute!

Yana stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIDxPAOnGwO - Yana and Fifa. Hope Pancho isn't feeling too left out. :laugh2:

OK, the men are about to start at NHK so off I go!

See you next time guys!

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

I'm preparing myself to face the heat outside so I can get to the gym, but before I go...

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CII5Wy9pK99 - Sofia Titova's SP at Zhiguli yesterday! What an absolute firecracker! She's amazing! I love this program so hard.

Alas Plushy wasn't there, perhaps he'll show up today? The FS portion of the competition takes place in about 6 hours, I'll post a link when it pops up.

Also! I found out what the Family Plush was on the Evening Urgant show about:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIHE1DHJb9I - The cottages which are planned at the new Academy :) It looks like they'll be a little cafe as well! I wonder if they'll be tours, OMG I'd totally pay to see it.

Here's what Plushy said about why he's opening this facility: https://photos.app.goo.gl/6FUpfN4KjwJHJk6d8

Awww Plushy will always remember where he came from and the struggles he had ☺️

On that note I shall be off! Wish me luck it's only 10:45am and the temperature is already 35 degrees C out there!! 🤯

Until next time!

To be honest, Plushenko’s coaching efforts atm brought him to my attention and I had watched some of his old skates. Love them.

as for how certain fans treat Trusova, really shame on them.

I wish them both perseverance and success (and to Plushenko’s other students as well, of course). I think he is looking to work with skaters his own way, and it’s a good thing.
Same here :) I did watch them and liked them years ago but I was not that turned onto the FS then like I am now. But yes, in spite of all these years his old programs still seem marvellous. Which is a rare bird as many old FS goldies did not age that well taking into account the enormous progress in this sport since then.

I tried to watch a lot of old era figure skating because people rave about it, and Plushenko is about the only one that I can see warranting nostalgia. Between Bielman, 4-3-3 combo and dance step sequences, it was truly out of the box.

@Magill and @lariko - Not gonna lie this makes my Plushy fangirling heart happy 🥰

I do love Plushy's programs, they're the only ones where my attention never wanders - my attention span is a short one. They're kinda the standard to which I hold other programs, and to my biased self, there's not many that match up to the charisma and excitement of an old school Plushy program :laugh:

Anywho, I mentioned I'd provide a link for the competition Sofia's in when it popped up and here it is!


Not sure if Plushy's there because I've been distracted cleaning my house and I'm not even sure which skater is up (no info bar supplied and I can't decipher the announcer). Sofia will be skating last and currently sits first with 71.80 from the SP!

Does anyone know if Murav’eva is recovering after her WD?
I'm afraid I haven't heard anything about Sofia M, the entries for the Cups never seem to be confirmed until the last minute so alas we'll need to wait until the end of the week to know!

In other news Sofia T won her event by about 40 points with a lovely FS :cheer: Plushy wasn't there, but Sofia had support in the form of Sergei Alexseev and her adorable tissue box cover 🥰

Sasha P Sheningans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIKs3cRq2U3 -Proud Papa Plushy posted Sasha improvising to Andrea Bocelli. Someone in the comments asked Plushy if he skated so well at Sasha's age (7, almost 8), he said he was much worse :laugh:

Also it was Mother's Day in Russia yesterday so:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIKt4qJlDNY - Yana celebrating the day with Sasha and Senya - awwww 🤗

Right, once again I'm typing this when I should be working, so I'm off now! Until next time fellow Plushy fans!

Also it was Mother's Day in Russia yesterday so:
I was really confused when I saw it. I thought it was always 8th of March in Russia. And in the West, it’s in May... so as always, I put it to the great mysteries of the Russian soul.

Cup’s site has two dates, content filing deadline on the 1st, and the negative COVID test 72 hrs or less prior to start, so my best guess is that the organizers will release the participants’ lists on the 2nd December, as it makes sense with that logistics

The 8th is International Women's Day, which is a holiday over there :) and is for all women not just mothers. Although I must say I've never noticed Mother's Day in November before!

Although we're still waiting on the Junior entries, which will tell us about Sofia M.

In other news...

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIQtxZdD_u_ - Plushy and Yana are bringing back Swan Lake for their annual Christmas show. Adelina will be there as will Elena I, how exciting! (It will be a Covid safe event apparently, with only 25% capacity in the arena and the audience has to wear masks and gloves. Fingers crossed this is so!)

Anais on Insta posted this lovely photo:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIOUpwJqTTO - Coachshenko and son :)

Coachshenko content:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIQhA6xq5-O - Working with Sofia T. This is so cute! 🥰

Sofia T fun

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIM6hXlJ4Tb - :laugh: Who hasn't done this ;)

Right better wrap this up, I have Christmas cards to write!

Until next time fellow Plushy fans!

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Well, things are looking quite worrying with the Fifth Stage of the Russian Cup and even the Nationals with so many skaters ill :( So far the Academy seems to have escaped the worst of it, but I wonder if their luck will last :(

I hope the Swan Lake show will only go ahead if it's safe to do so. I'd hate to see people get COVID-19 from attending!

In much more cheerful news there was fun at the Academy today!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIVOjGlJ5fk - Sasha T helping Sasha P and....I'm not sure, it could be Sofia Sarnovskaya the Younger.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIVXnQah0hN - There was also a birthday! Yaroslav Khrulev turned 9 today. And I see that Plushy is already got into competition mode - he's forgoing shaving :laugh:

Other Coachshenko content:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIVQ8Cqpfwh - Working with Sofia T - Sofia can do the cantilever! 🥰

Right it's almost midnight and I have to tomorrow,so I better be off!

Until next time, stay safe and healthy everyone!

I think Sofia Muraveva is healthy and happy, just like Sasha, Aliona and the other students

Sadly Aliona has tested positive for COVID-19, but fingers and toes crossed it's just a mild case.

Those photos on Insta are so cute though! Happy skaters make me happy 🤗

I'm worried though, perhaps the Russian figure skating community needs to clamp down? Like keep themselves isolated from other groups for at least a month to stop the spread. It seems pretty unlikely to happen, but it does raise an interesting question, what would the Russian Figure Skating Fed do if all the skaters and coaches took this step? They surely couldn't punish everyone could they?!

I'm also worried about the show, as spectacular as it is, Plushy and co are gonna get slammed if they go ahead! But alas I am but a fan and have no sway. I just really, really hope everyone can stay safe!

In more lighthearted news I found something funny at work today. I posted about it here: https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/threads/figure-skaters-lookalikes.68780/post-2674059

In other news I feel like I forgot to post this...

https://www.instagram.com/p/CITcwDzqqiB - Honestly I have no idea what Plushy is doing with that cane (and it looks like some of the Angels don't either :laugh:), but as always it's epic!

Sasha P Sheningans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIXhiyRI9LH - Sasha in the morning, I'm loving the sloth PJs! 🥰

Yana stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIXgY9SFD2X - Looking stylish as always on the "A Million for a Dream" set.

Right oh, better wrap this up as I'm baking cupcakes for my grandmother's birthday tomorrow and I have to keep an eye on them.

Until next time fellow Plushy fans, stay healthy and safe!

Hello, fellow Plushy fans! Hope you're all well and having a good weekend.

The Russian Cup Stage V is on at the moment, although no sign of Plushy and Team Angel as yet. I've got my fingers crossed that they'll all adhere to proper mask etiquette, but I'm not exactly hopeful because....

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIajaUoKn1D - Plushy, Sergei A and Sergei R show off their mad spinning skills and then Plushy tells everyone to wear their masks, but pulls his mask down to do so! 🤯 :laugh2: Oh, Plushy I can't even :p

But I'm happy to see him back to his normal self.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIYNReaqa38- And hey maybe Sergei R gave everyone at the Academy lessons. ;)

I'm wondering about the status of my Christmas card though! I suppose I could always email the rink I sent it to and ask after it in a few weeks time. They'll probably think I'm a nut :laugh:

Sasha P Sheningans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIYaSD8K6KO - Sasha working on a double loop-doube loop combo, nice! 👍

Sofia Titova stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIcUBbgpX07 - I couldn't resist posting this, it's Sofia's SP costume, ah-ma-zing!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIVqgeeJ3ow - Sofia and Sergei Alexseev after the competition last week. 🥰

Yana stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIay3lKFv-v - Yana and Fifa paying a visit to the new Academy Rink. Werk that sweater, Fifa! :biggrin:

Right I have to go out in my laundry and clean my house a bit so I must be off. Until next time fellow Plushy fans!

A very good program by Veronica Zhilina. He succeeded 3A + 3T. Incredible! Her mother was with Plushy at the competition

Congratulations to Nika! NGL, the first thing I did when I got up this morning was go on YouTube to see how she did.

Wow! Amazing jumps and spins! I was a bit surprised by the stumbles, but she's superfast so maybe that causes it.

I also looked for the video so I could see if Plushy was there (he wasn't for Maxim Avtushenko - the other Angel there) and if so what the mask situation was.

And hooray!! Correctly-worn-mask-wearing Plushy FTW!

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CIgLLkAKEm1 - Here he is with Nika and her mother after the skate. Awww, Plushy hugs. 🥰

In other news, it was Yuzu's birthday yesterday :hb: :

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIgRQrrDndu - Plushy's birthday wishes!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIgNTYTAuMn - Sasha P's birthday wishes! D'awwww 🥰

Coachshenko content:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CIfXU3KKsw9 - Coachshenko and Sofia Titova hard at work. And look! Plushy's so much back to his old self he's chewing gum like it's going out of style again! :laugh:

Sasha P Sheningans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIdpMPsAqti - Sasha and his friends hung out over the weekend and enjoyed some soccer training with Dimitri (I have no idea if he's a soccer coach or an Academy coach TBH :laugh2: )

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIgIiZ0noLZ - Sasha and Yana with the Kirkov family on the weekend, I'm amused by Sasha's side-eye in the second photo, those masks with the teeth on it are scary! :p

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIa3a8cohYl and https://www.instagram.com/p/CIYcNgLoFCN - No idea what's happening here, but it's cute 🤗

Right oh, I'm at work so I better dash! Until next time fellow Plushy fans, stay healthy!

Hello fellow Plushy fans! Hope you're all well and have had a good week.

It's been rather quiet on the Plushy front lately, however he's actually posted stuff on good account!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIqc7v5Dw8Z - Plushy with a Christmas sweatered Fifa, OMG this is too hilarious and adorable I died. 🥰 :laugh2: watch the whole thing though ;)

Coachshenko content:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CIn4-XBIQVY - Sasha P does a run-through of his program under Coachshenko's watchful eye. I do wonder what's being said! How does coaching even work, I feel like if I tried it I'd just be standing there going "Yeah, jump! Don't fall down!" and other obvious sentiments ;)

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CIm6HOmKBv2 - Coachshenko at work! Lots going on here, including on ice push-ups! I love Plushy's hat, he totally looks like a gnome ;)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIrs3q-JKn- - From November, Coachshenko and Sofia Titova hard at work.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIj4dkUJajQ - Sofia T's free skate dress 😍

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIlLC8xJBR4 - With Fifa (in his Christmas sweater!) at the new rink.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIoIKPQq5y6 - Must have been bring your pets to work day, Plushy brought Gray, who's massive, but clearly intrigued by figure skating! Good boy. :p

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIpk5gZFI-1 - Sasha and Yana the other day heading off somewhere mysterious! I'm most curious!

Yana stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIit43NK7Ab and https://www.instagram.com/p/CIlPWFxqr4B - Behind the scenes of a photoshoot. That's a lot of camera flashes! I think I'd get a headache!

Yana's breakfast

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIh00JNFVZB- Yana asks if we've missed the breakfast posts, I know I have! :laugh:

Right better wrap this up, I haven't had dinner yet and there's lots to watch tonight - it's the Moscow Championship and Kirill S currently sits in 1st going into the Junior Men's FS and Nikita S in 3rd! Fingers crossed for them both :)

Until next time fellow Plushy fans, stay healthy!
