Hey sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am a self admitted “rink rat” so a lot of this blog will be about figure skating and hockey, however as an ex-figure skater, ex-varsity athlete and a sports fan in general, I usually have thoughts and opinions about alot of different sports I follow, so visit often!
My Worlds experience has begun early with a super cool encounter with Brian Orser.
During my flight from Frankfurt to Helsinki, I had the pleasure of sitting directly next to Brian. As I have been a fan of his for many, many years, this was such a treat!! He was very friendly as I introduced myself. We chatted briefly about non-Yuzu things and then I asked Brian how Yuzu was doing.
“Yuzu’s doing great, he’s doing really well. This is the best shape he has been in since I have been with him. It’s been five years and this is the best shape Yuzu’s ever been in, in my opinion” Brian said.
I told Brian that I wrote a sports blog and then I asked for and got permission from him to post his words. Thanks so much Brian!!
I also asked Brian if/when his two books would be published in English. Brian said that he wasn’t sure if they were going to be, and that his best suggestion would be to contact the publisher. Now it’s on my to do list after Worlds. Hopefully some of you will also help with this and with a large enough number of english speaking fans perhaps we can convince them to do it. He didn’t know the name of the publisher off the top of his head but he said it should be listed in the front jacket of his latest book. I will publish any further information about this as I find it.
I will blog about my experience after Worlds is over but so far, it’s off to a great start!!!
Go Yuzu Go!!! Doki Doki!!
