Surprise upset (looking at you, Shibs! :p)

Be on the panel that selects the 2018 Olympic team for your country (at the 2018 nationals, obviously)

Or

Be an agent/costumer/choreographer/dance instructor/personal trainer/nutritionist/some other kind of "skating helper" for your favorite skater/team?

I didn't start watching until after CoP, so I'd make a new one.

Trying to make this one hard:

Would you rather...

Have no skaters from "Big 4" (Russia, US, Canada, Japan) countries at worlds; or

Have only skaters from the Big 4 at worlds?

Oooohh, 6.0. I can't even wrap my head on how to start a new one!

This one is hard, but am more familiar with skaters from the Big 4, so I choose only skaters from Big 4.

Would you rather eat very spicy and hot food with any drink of your choice or very dry food without any drink (risk of choking)?

Very dry...can't take the heat, LOL.

Have all of your favorites fall on non-jump elements at worlds and barely miss the podium because of it
OR
Have them all skate perfectly but barely miss the podium because three other skaters made mistakes but got marked up in PCS?

(this in fact, did happen at Worlds 2016 to one of my new favorites, Adam. He skated his best, even with one UR, but really everything else was perfect, and by that I mean not just with brilliant technique, but with beautiful presentation and performance. I felt that Shoma was overscored in PCS in the SP; and if he hadn't been, then Adam would have placed in 5th.... and that would have been enough for our 3 US men's places. Ouch! But I still think the experience for Adam was the most valuable thing.

WOULD YOU RATHER ...

Change your spare room into a library with a special skating section and a couple of easy chairs, OR change it into a pool and billiard room?

change it into a library with a special skating section - hands down!

Would you rather attend all the practices @ Worlds or attend a post show SOI Meet & Greet?

If you could be a figure skater with talent only in EITHER jumps or spins, which would you choose?

Technical

Would you rather your favorite be consistently undermarked but everyone love him/her OR consistently properly marked but no one else can stand watching his/her skating... ?

Would you rather see Johnny Weir dressed "normally" while commentating, or let him continue wearing whatever he wants? :rofl:

Would you rather have Kurt Browning have one Olympic medal or 4 World titles?

Four World titles ... because that's made him the skater he became :)

Would you rather (if this had to be one or the other) have Evgenia M. have won 2018 Olympics, or see her compete for four more years ... with Brian Orser as coach?

Would you rather see a female ice dancer lift her partner, or have the male do all the lifting?

Let's see a female lift up her partner :biggrin:

Would you rather get World tickets to see only your favorite discipline compete up close and personal -OR- get tickets for nosebleed seats at every discipline?
