Only gonna liveblog these ladies if I have more to say than "not bad," "good costume," "good music" etc. Because of that, I'm probably only going to talk about one skater in group 3 and dedicate most of this to group 4 (plus some side comments).
here we go )
Phew!

I think I'm not going to liveblog this last group, but I'm wishing Caroline the best!

so excited

4 Continents starts tomorrow night. I'm skipping the second half of a club meeting to I can watch live because I decided to pay for a pass to watch 4CCs and Worlds online.

As I may have said in an earlier post, I'm not well-versed in the different skaters yet (esp. not pairs and ice dancing or anything below seniors) and I have mostly seen US people since watching Nats is what got me so into skating, but here is who I am rooting for, in order of where their names appeared on the list online:

Men: Daisuke Takahashi, Denis Ten, Ross Miner, and Adam Rippon (natch).

Ladies: Mao Asada, Victoria Muniz (because she is reps Puerto Rico and is from Guam, and I have feelings about the US territories; idgaf if she has no chance at getting on the podium), Ashley Wagner, and Caroline Zhang.

Pairs: Not Caydee Denney and John Coughlin.

Ice Dance: Um...whomever I like when I watch?

Working on getting Becca into figure skating. She likes Yu-na Kim so far, because that's who she has watched, and now I have to decide to to get her into next. Teams USA and Japan are my favorites overall, but even narrowing down to that I don't know. I guess current elite senior skaters (as in, not currently retired ones). Mao Asada, Ashley Wagner, and Alissa Czisny are, of course, probably great choices for ladies skaters. For mens I'm thinking Daisuke Takahashi, Yuzuru Hanyu, Adam Rippon, or Jeremy Abbott.

I'm still working on watching more people and finding out who else I like. I mean, right now I know that I prefer skaters to be lyrical, artistic, and good at actually skating with the music, rather than just skating to music, if that makes sense. The ability to emotionally connect is, of course, really good, and I also like nice spins and choreo. Still, I haven't actually watched the majority of good skaters who are currently active (or who were active in the past).

My roommates all think I'm crazy, but for whatever reason skating fandom has gripped me. I figured it would be my other new fandom, Sherlock, that I'd be blathering on about. Nope! All skating all the time.
