Before I really got into figure skating (I'm still not really into figure skating), I read a bunch of stuff online about stanning Shoma being really emotionally demanding, and when I read it I thought, 'that's crazy, i'd never be personally affected by an ice skater's performances.'
I was wrong, being a Shoma fan is a rollercoaster, and I'm not even that obsessed.
It's making me pretty anxious, which is something I never imagined I'd feel. In the end, no matter what he does I'll be proud of him (although, like any sane person, I'd hate to see him injured even if that means a high score, and even a medal), so I guess now it's just a waiting game. I'm so bad at waiting.
Four years ago I would never have imagined I'd be freaking out at skating, NEVER. All the eeks and "OH!!s" and "YES!" and "NOOOOO!" made me like a crazy person. I watched Shoma's SP at 4CC (Four Continents Championship) while I was having dessert with my friend and they saw my reaction and they looked at me as if I were a madman. When I watched Yuzu at Rostelecom Cup last year, I had a cramp because I kicked my leg so hard when he fell. After all, ice is slippery. That is what makes figure skating so unpredictable, and every fan has to go through this rollercoaster ride. (My mom has to squeeze my arm when she watches skating she squeezes, she screams, she shouts etc) After each event its like I have gone for a 1-hour run! That was intense!
