Live from Locohama S1/E10: Payback’s a bitch!!

Sitting in the office 2 hours ago watching Mao get her ass handed to her. After she stumbled…

Kim Yuna

Me: Ugh! That wasn’t good

Sensei-gata (all teachers)- Yabaaaaai! Hidoi!!! Kawaisou!!! (Fuuuuck!)

Me: Maybe she can still get the silver or the bronze.

Yoshida sensei: …

Me: That girl Kim. She’s Korean, right?

Yoshida: …

Me: Mae no kanojo wa kankokujin deshou? (That girl that skated earlier was Korean right?)

Yoshida: Hai hai hai

Me: She was cute!

Yoshida: …

Me: Mao’s cute too…looks kind of Chinese, though.

Yoshida: …

Me: Are Koreans better skaters than Japanese?

Yoshida: Eeee?

Me: Not today…I mean obviously today they are better. I mean in general…

Yoshida: …

Me: Is Mao haafu? Half Chinese, half Japanese? She looks Chinese to me…


Me: Wakatta?

Yoshida: Wakatta wakatta…

Mao’s score appears on the screen.

Me: HEY! Mao’s in second place! That’s great! She has a good chance of being number two in the world!

Ozawa sensei gets up and turns the TV off. Time to get back to work.

Me: Damn! I wanted to see that Russian girl. She was cute, too!

    It’s really cool to see the Japanese side of this. The Korean ferver is unbelievable.

    Yeah the korean girl is pretty fit, and the james bond routine was rather sexy. The Japanese girls…not so much. GO KOREA!

    Mao is equally talented as Kim Yuna but tonight wasn’t her night…I admire Mao’d dedication and skills.

    I was about to assume Yoshida gave up on life, for a moment there..

    Heh, I left the office during the competition b/c I was afraid what would happen if Japan didn’t get first.

    They are such children here that had Yuna loss to a Japanese woman there would have been riots in the street. no joke

    From the twitter stream of another ALT from when Mao’s score was announced:

    Daniel Feit That sound you just heard was Japan sighing and Korea orgasming. Me? I’m just happy I’m not in class right now #olympics

    I’m sure all the skaters are dedicated and talented…but there can only be one! Gold, that is.

      @Blue Shoe….sho you right!
      @blackchild….yeah it gets pretty emotiional here too. But if Itry that at a bar during a korea/japan world cup soccer match I might not get out alive! Thanks for the shout
      @Overoften: Bad as I wanna be (-; thanks overoften!
      @Kat….nah I don’t know that one..I’ll peep the libnk (-:
      @Joe: That Kim is hot! Mao, not so much…but overall I think Japanese have it over korea in the looks and style dept. Thanks for the shout
      @Ebun: I wold have left too but the desire to spit on Yoshida overtook me lol
      @12345: it certainly wasnt….she choked and Japan will never forgive her unitl she brings home some gold, preferably over Kim in 4 years
      @superfantabulou: Yeah the japanese side is quite intense….maybe it was the same in the US but I dont remember

      Thanks for the shouts ALL

    Both sides have been pretty childish about this, but I almost cheered against Mao (actually do respect her as an athlete – well kind of athlete, anyway…) because I was so sick of Japanese people saying she’s their favorite olympian because she’s ‘kawaii.’

      Hey Billy! I’m right there with you on that…
      thanks for the shout!

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
