Canadians now whining about losing to Russia
US calls the judging issue laughable.
NBC is so desperate to create another Superstar skater they are lying through their teeth about the ladies skaters and people are buying it hook, line and sinker. All I can do sitting here watching this competition is scream at the TV in disgust.
Yulia Lipnitskaya is a pretty little girl but she is not an artist. She’s a jumper and she is no threat to Yuna Kim if the judges do their job so why is NBC acting like the second coming of Michelle Kwan in 1996 is upon us?
There was nothing captivating about her LP performance. She did a great job jumping through an emotionless journey of nothing but that was it.
The comments about Gracie Gold are not any better. Julia makes Gracie look like a Ballerina that is how overrated Gold is as a skater. Gracie has no grace. In fact both these girls look like they are trying too hard.
I suppose what annoyed me most was an article from Yahoo about how Gracie vs Julia was the newest Skating rivalry. Julia won by 11 points so this is not much of a rivalry and it is dis-respectful to Yuna Kim who has been the only watchable skater of the last 4 years.
I guess I am mean blogger today and I blame this on NBC. Every 4 years they promote this sport in the most unrealistic way that it annoys the hell out of people that follow the sport more than every 4 years.
Speaking of creating another rivalry NBC has decided that Ashley Wagner is the Tonya Harding of skating and the rest of the media is helping the trend.
I am not making excuses for Ashley’s bad attitude but guess what, she is what she is. She is feisty, cocky and she speaks without thinking and she makes no excuses for it.
NBC is loving this new version of an old Rivalry. Ashley is the mean bitch who didn’t deserve her spot and Gracie Gold is fucking Cinderella.
I need to stop watching the Olympics.lol
Katelyn Ohashi has spoken.
Rebecca Bross has too.
The Woga Classic has gone on without a hitch but sorry you can’t watch any of it. Nice of Gymnastike to link to the videos only people with 120 bucks can watch. I understand making money but why advertise videos you are not allowing people to watch?
Someone else put of videos on youtube.
