I'm calling for an immediate cease fire! As head of the Axels, Loops, and Spins International Council on Skating Affairs...I have such authority to do so...
Those in Japan...Those in Korea...anyone else that is feeding into all the conspiracy theories about Japanese skaters attempting to block Kim Yu-Na on warm-ups, or Korean news agencies purposefully being asked to write negatively about Japanese Skaters, or Japanese news agencies being accused of writing negatively about Kim Yu-Na, or any of this hulabaloo...STOP!
The ugliness of this fight is getting in the way of the beauty of their skating. Yes, BOTH OF THEM skate beautifully. We are all devoted to our favorites and want them to win and succeed, but when we resort to this pettiness it doesn't help them or motivate them at all...it just makes the person making these accusations look like an idiot.
So just enjoy skating, stop making unfounded accusations, stop tagging Jeremy Abbott in bogus You Tube videos, just stop! The world will then be a much happier place.
I have a feeling I'm going to get pummeled in the comments of this post...I don't care. BRING IT!
