Yuzuru Hanyu: Kenji’s Room cute moments

——“Yuzu: What is my favorite motto? “Try never to lose your initial enthusiasm.”

Kenji: Sounds good.

Yuzu: My ex-coach Nanami Abe told me this saying. When I landed a 3A for the first time, she bought me iPod. I found “AAA” engraved on it. It means “triple axel”. She gave me that words with iPod. “Try never to lose your initial enthusiasm.” I think the meaning is “You must keep on doing your best, even if you can land 3A or quads. Do not be satisfied with that. You must not be boastful.” I still treasure her words now. This words is always with me.”

——Yuzu was asked what the biggest blooper in his life was but he really didn’t answer the question. 

“Yuzu: What will I do 10 years from now? What will I do…

Kenji: You will be 30.

Yuzu: I will be enough old! I will be “OJISAN” (OJISAN means a middle-aged person)

Kenji: Hey! What did you say? The OJISAN is sitting next to you! It’s me!

Yuzu: Shoot! Haha. I made the biggest blooper in my life now.”

——“Yuzu: What is the feast for me? Ummmm if I answer to this question frankly, I would be a bit embarrassed and some people say it’s not a kind of feast but I dare to say it’s my mother’s home cooking.

Kenji: Wow, I’m embarrassed to hear that!

Yuzu: But I really think so. I think for me the feast is not always an elaborate dish. For me, the feast is the food which she makes for me thinking much of my health. She always cooks for me thinking about the nutrition to get rid of everyday fatigue and stress. I love to eat such food. I’m not interested in eating so much. She really know that. She knows my favorite taste and how I feel easy to eat. So my mother’s cooking is the feast for me!”

——“Kenji: And I have another surprise. I heard you are a fan of “Hiroshima Carp” (Japanese baseball team). Look at this.

Yuzu: Wow! This is great!

Kenji: This is Kenta Maeda’s uniform with his autograph.

Yuzu: I wonder if you have another surprise? For example, Maeken-san (Kenta Maeda’s nick name) will enter this room?

Kenji: No…. sorry, someone who looked like him came here before. Haha. Try it on?

Yuzu: I’m super happy!”

——“Kenji: Looking back all, what is the most impressive competition for you?

Yuzu: People might imagine that must be the Olympics… but I say “No.”. Let me see…. In the good meaning, I think the first National Novice Championship was most impressive.

Kenji: Why?

Yuzu: I was so excited because it was the first time for me to compete in the National Novice Championship. I was not nervous at all. Just excited. I enjoyed competing in the competition. Really enjoyed. At that time, I trained a lot. I felt I didn’t make a goof at all. I was a 4th grade elementary student, but I thought I could definitely win. At that time the scoring system was 6.0 system. I remember the grade more than 5.00 was that of the senior skaters who competed in the World Championship. But a judge gave me 5.2 at that time. I was really happy.

Kenji: Yes, you were great at that age to get 5.2 points.

Yuzu: I was surprised at myself and thought I could compete with senior skaters at the World Championship. I was an elementary school student at that time.,, haha.”

young!coaches

With all of JJ’s flashbacks, I have this terrible need to see fanart and fanfiction of young!coaches. Since most coaches are ex-figure skaters, they must have had their own skating careers and backstories. 

If Harry Potter has the Marauders, surely we can have young!coaches (we might have to think of a more snazzy name for it).

Thief AU stuff

Code Name: King

Osamu acquired his persona during The Phantom Thieves investigation into his ex-coach, where he was dragged into mementos by accident while following the protagonist.  His mask is a black domino style with an offshoot running down each cheek, and it contains the persona Arthur, the legendary knight who was raised in poverty.

Arthur’s appearance is that of a faceless hooded figure wielding a scratched up blade engraved with ancient tales of kings.  His inspiration is of the man who has drawn Caliburn from the stone, but is yet to take his place on the throne.  Arthur has access to Zio/Holy skills, with the occasional physical attack every few levels.  When using magic he will raise Caliburn to the sky, moving his mouth as if he were chanting a spell before its effects take place.  Whereas when he uses physical skills he will simply swipe at the enemy with his blade.

In the palace King tends to be more patient and careful than his alter ego, often stopping the team to offer his opinion on the options they have before them.  He justifies this with the idea that if you’re going to commit a crime you might as well do it right.  

In combat King makes use of Rapiers and other light swords, his swipes and thrusts are clean and elegant and while they deal overall less damage than most weapons, King is able to more precisely attack vulnerable areas.  For ranged weapons King is accustomed to Rifles, especially lever actions which he reloads very stylishly.  

english is a good language but brazilian portuguese has some indispensable terms such as ‘lei do ex’ which roughly translates to 'your club’s ex players and coaches will fuck u up the next time they play u’ and i think that’s beautiful

The stage is set and the semifinals for the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League promises to be one for the ages. The luck of the draw—which took place at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday at 12:00 CET—paired FC Barcelona with FC Bayern Munich in the first semifinal. Luis Enrique’s squad will be going up against their ex-coach Pep Guardiola in a home-and-home knockout series that pits two teams with wide open attacking styles and should produce a pair of highly entertaining football matches, regardless of who comes out on top.

Carlo Ancelotti clarifies statements printed in the Daily Mail | November 12, 2015
- Tweets: {1} {2} {3} {4}

Carlo Ancelotti tweeted clarification to quotes attributed to him in a recent Daily Mail interview. In the interview, he spoke of a row between players and his ex-assistant coach Paul Clement. 

“I have had problems with players. I had players who told Paul Clement, my former assistant, to **** off but my response is to tell them they no longer play for me; that they need to ask the club to leave.” 

The quote has been misinterpreted by the press, and it was assumed that he was referring to Real Madrid players. However, that was not the case.

In a series of tweets, Ancelotti stated: “I want to clarify two things about my interview in the Daily Mail. 1 - Neither Paul Clement nor I had any problems with Real players.”

“What the interview refers to is an episode at another team, not at Real.”

“2 - I did not say that Barcelona are the best team in the world, but rather that they are Real’s most difficult rival.”

“I have always said Real Madrid are the best club in the world. Nothing more. Greetings to everyone.”

Edited to add: Matt Lawton, the interviewer, has also admitted to mishearing the quote about Barcelona.

Even though the loss sucks it shows that the US can no longer play by pure athleticism alone. And the timing couldn’t have been worse, but the silver lining is women’s game has progressed to where the team actually needs good coaching and strategy to win. Today they were totally out-coached. An ex-coach years removed from the program knew how they were going to play and how to defend it perfectly, and if that’s not a red flag for change I don’t know what is. 

Take a look at some of the point totals that Kobe put up in a single stretch, starting with the Dallas game and ending with ours a month later: 62, 37, 45, 48, 50, 45, 41, 38, 37, 51, 37 … 81.

Yo.

That’s one of the best months ever. Not just in basketball history — in sports history.

And listen: Guys were paying attention. Guys around the league were paying very close attention to Kobe that season. Any time you’d see someone, small-talk with someone, from inside the game — teammate, opponent, coach, ex-player, whatever — that was the conversation. How are you … How’s the family … Kobe, man. It was just on the list. And that’s what it was like that whole year — heavy chatter. Once a guy gets to a certain level, the whole league notices.

And so when people ask me if we knew how many points Kobe had during The Game — I just nod. Honestly, in ’06, it was almost as though they were two separate sports: 1. The NBA, and 2. How Many Points Kobe Got? And that’s what I tell people.

Yeah, we knew.

Everyone knew.” - Charlie Villanueva.

I think the ones who do not recognize Messi as the best player are fools. I would tell them that Leo is not the same Leo with Argentina as the one with Barcelona because, he, probably, does not enjoy himself here. It is necessary to make Leo feel loved and wanted, to accept that he can play well and also not so well.

We have to be proud to have the best player in the world. If we don’t enjoy him, nothing will comfort us. I can assure you that all those comments reach Leo and make him feel uncomfortable and this discomfort will transmit onto the pitch.
