The Miracle of Mao

"And there were in the same country skating fans abiding in the field, keeping watch over Keyhole TV by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Kwan came upon them, and the glory of the Kwan shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of Nagano a Skater, which is the new Mao Asada.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the triple jumps wrapped in flower boobies, as well as in lavender barnacles.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising Asada, and saying,
Glory to the triple axel in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

Clearly I am an apostate (Maopostate?), as I had doubts about Miss Asada making the world team. Thus I will go forth and do my penance by spreading the Miracle of Mao to the nations.


  1. Haha, good one:)
    As you may probably guess, I'm terribly disappointed about Akiko not making the team...
    Kanako is good but still so unrefined and childish, I'm not a fan of Mao, and Miki...well I don't like her at all..:-S
    You know, my opinion is that it's also a matter of tv ratings, sponsorship and all, I mean Mao's a star in Japan, if Mao doesn't make the team then people would lose interest in figure skating.
    Anyway we'll see how they'll all do at worlds...
    What did you think of the Men's competition?

  2. I feel sorry for Akiko but there's no doubt she was clearly outskated by the top three at Nationals. It's tough skating in a deep field such as Japan. Morozombie, please get working on her French passport. ^_^

  3. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinions, but like Anonymous said, Akiko was completely outskated by the top three. It's one thing to go wuzrobbed and go all conspiracy theorist if the top three had sloppy skates, but Akiko had a severely underrotated 3Lz in the SP; she also had a step out on her 2A+3T and doubled the flip - the crowd reaction spoke for itself (Miki, Mao, and Kanako all had standing ovations while Akiko did not). Also, the top 3 all satisfied JSF's guidelines in making the team for Worlds.

    Akiko still has Four Continents, and she announced that she will continue competing next season. All is not lost.

    Thanks for the post Morozombie! Your blog is one of my must-visit spots when it comes to skating.
