Plushenko Tangos His Way to European Gold

Evgeny Plushenko tangoed his way to European championships gold on Saturday, emphatically announcing his return to the international scene with a near perfect free skate that left the competition trailing in his masterful wake.

The 29-year-old Russian suppressed the pain of a knee and back injury to execute a glorious succession of jumps and spins that began with a textbook quadruple toe loop, earning first place from compatriot Artur Gachinsky in second and Florent Amodio of France in third.

It's common everywhere, you probably don't like to watch football if you don't know that. I don't like to watch it too. Very boring game.
I watch just about every big game from Premier League.
They do not kiss.
They might jump on each other with joy though.
If football is boring to you & manīs ice skating is exciting, then something is funny here.

It's not boring "to me", it's just boring. How many goals they usually do during the 90+ minutes game? In average? Probably one? This is maybe 20 seconds of the show. All other time you watch on two tens of guys simply running on the field hither and thither. If this is exciting for you, then "something is funny here".:)

An average of...I do not know those statistics.
I agree, if the scores ends up 1 nothing, it might be not too exciting, but I have seen games with 3-4 goals & thatīs exciting.

I believe, you are an ex-ice skater in retirement. Perhaps, double jumps were in your show. I am sad, you do not perform any longer.

Come on now. You have been jumping around all those ice skater for years. Someone who loves some poofter jumping is very peculiar to me.
I assume, you like planting flowers too.

No, I don't like football, I don't like some poofters running on the field and hugging/kissing each other after each goal, and I don't like planting flowers too, of course. It's all yours.

crazy,

now you become repetitious.
As I said, no footballers are kissing.
Are Russians kissing on the pitch ?
I bet, the crowds go wild after that.
May I suggest, sharpen your skates, itīs time to hit the ice.

I already posted the link in message #25 with many photos of football stars about how they "do not kissing" their teammates. If you don't see this message (Topix like to hide the message with an external link), you can google it yourself. So don't deny the facts, please. They always kissing.

You are nor seeing well.
Those are Russians from Moscow.
UK footballers are hugging only.
During commie reign you Russians were kissing daily.
Perhaps, it is still practiced in Russia.
Mind you, it was very repulsive, then.

Really? Rooney, Beckham, Zidane, Alonso, Neville, Scholes, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Villa, Buffon and many other who like to kiss their teammates are Russians from Moscow?

As I said, on one hand you prohibit poofters to show you their tricks in downtown Moscow, but on the other you cheer for some poofy on ice wildly.
I do not get it.
even crazy is strange, he hates football, but loves jumping poofters on ice.

The figure ice skaters must do a lot of related gymnastics and dancing work, the sport and its whatnot doesn't appeal to your butch manly side but it doesn't mean they have to be poofters at all. Anyway, there's a handball Euro finale starting in about an hour (Denmark vs Serbia) and that's where a wussie won't make it and where bodies fly! No kissing or hugging going on either!:)

kubko,

then my question is :
why do you watch handball, since no kissing or hugging goes on ?
Russians are into some Plushonka & Polaks are into hand ballers ?
