Over on a forum I used to be part of for a different topic, there was a game called "baby names love like lose." The poster gave three names and the person had to put each name in one of these categories: Love, Like or Lose. The love and like names went back into the rotation for the next person, and the lose names were eliminated. I just remembered that game and thought, why not do one for skating? One poster will pick six skating-related things-skaters, elements, programs, etc.-that all adhere to a common theme, and then come up with a new theme that fit the Love and Like items and add a new one.

Example

Theme: ladies world medalists 2014-15

Elizaveta, Satoko, Elena

Love: Elena
Like: Satoko
Lose: Elizaveta

New category (real one now): signature spins
Elena's twirly Biellman, Satoko's change-of-direction combination spin, Yulia's split Biellman

Your turn now!

Oh I see, it's kind of like the family-friendly version of marry, shag, throw off a cliff. Except with things and not just people.

Love: Liza's finger-snapping after jumps
Like: Mariah Bell's smile
Lose: Ashley's intense gaze (sorry Ashley, I just start laughing).


Jumps: US Men

Max Aaron's 4S-3T, Joshua Farris' 3A, Jason Brown's 3F-3T.

Hmm....

Love: JF's 3A
Like: MA's 4S-3T
Lose: JB's 3F-3T

Ladies 3Lz-3Ts

Gracie's 3Lz-3T, Elena's 3Lz-3T, Yuna's 3Lz-3T (Okay, not current, but I had to put it because it's legendary)

On a similar note to karne's, at US nationals, there were interviews with skaters using viewer-submitted questions, and one of them was "kiss, cuddle, marry: Max, Jason, Jeremy?" and it was hilarious :laugh2: Would be an interesting thread to see crop up here...:slink: They asked that to a bunch of people last year, but this year, they just asked Ashley (I think she said kiss Jason, cuddle Max, marry Jeremy). A little watered down from your version, but...still. Part of me wants to see GSers answer that, and the other part...is very uncomfortable. :laugh2:
