Just turned on the ice skating competition and saw Sasha...How innocent, How beautiful! She's happy
I wonder what Tonya Harding's doing tonight? Probably getting arrested for something. That a$$!...Here comes Sarah Huges..absolutely breathtaking...She's satisfied..I guess... The judges are too picky!!!...but I guess they have to be.
I ice skated eversince I was 4 years old on a pond in the park up the street from my house. I always dreamed of skating professionally, not so much in the olympics, I just wanted to be as good as the professionals. Then I broke my leg on the ice when I was six after my mom told me not to go skating alone. You see I got these new skates for Christmas and I just had to try them out no matter what she said...Maybe I should have listened to her. I sustained a spiral fx to my right leg ( tibia & fibula) and was in a cast for four loooong months. Came out of it in April just in time for my first holy communion. I had to learn how to walk and genuflect on that right knee...without falling over in alittle less than two weeks. I did it though. Almost lost it, but made a good recovery. Couldn't wait until next winter so I could ice skate again.
I finally mastered the art of skating backwards the following winter and I was so proud that I could do something other than skate straight ahead! The sent of wood burning from the bon fires they always had ablaze at night filled the air and the taste of hot chocolate was the best ever! To this day when I smell wood burning from the fireplace or someone elses, it reminds me of those wonderful days of ice skating at Liberty Park in Peapack, NJ... Life was grand... I never became as good as the professionals, but everytime I donned my skates and took to the ice, I always felt like a star especially when the lights were on and no one else was around. I had the pond all to myself and really felt like I put on a show for... myself. If I ever competed, I think my choice of music would be Clair D'Lune by Claude Debussy...Very sensual piece of music...and Oh, I would never hit anyone's knees with a bat.....WHYYYYYYYYYY, WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? oh how I loved to skate....
Here comes Vanessa...she was good, but I wasn't impressed. For a short program, I didn't like her choice of music. Not so sophisticated. I bet she hit the wall many times.
Here comes Maria fom Russia...Not bad, but not a gold medal winner. She hit the wall at least twice in her career!
Now for Irina from Russia...Now there's a skater...beautiful job...very elegant, excellent foot work...on one foot! I wonder if she ever hit the wall???
hmmmm, second place. She should be in first. Those judges don't know what they're doing!!!
Do you think Kwan will finally get a gold medal this year???
Let's see...First place of course........Gee, I wonder if she ever rammed the wall? Why do they build her up so much? I mean she's good, don't get me wrong, but I don't think she's the best. I think the best skater ever was that blonde from Russia. The one who was caught driving drunk...What the heck was her name??? She was so good that I don't even remember her darn name...............Oxanna Biyewl or however you spell it.<<sheesh>>
And what is Lupinski doing now???Where's Nancy Kerrigan? I wonder if she ever sued Tonya? I think Kerrigan got married and had a baby. Never ever hear from these people again...Probably doing Disney on Ice...You work your whole life to do Disney on Ice??...Seems to me there should be more. I saw an Ice Capades one year, had a bunch of the big stars in it. Yamaguchi, Katarina Witt, acouple of those guy skaters...Hamilton, and the other two whatever their names were Eric somebody or other, Victor somebody Pitroika I think, but it was a great show. If you ever get a chance to see the ice capades, go. You'll enjoy it... alot. The audience really gets into it.
Look at those speed skaters. Don't they look like they're all arms? Kinda like monkeys. They should hook up a 350 cam on their backs then they'd look like real fast
Here comes Jennifer from canada...nice skirt...polka dots...whatever. Don't like her choice of music either...has to be classical to get the full effect of the beauty of skating.
You know something this skating is beginning to all look the same to me. How do the judges judge stuff that looks the same? The only difference to me is when they fall! ELVIS STOIKO...yeah, that's his name! He's the one I saw at the ice capades! Thanks Mr. Commentator...
I wish this stuff would move alittle faster...too many commercials! and too much bull in between. Now for the men's aerial twirlling. Eric Berges who cares! He said, "it's not about winning, it's about striving for perfection." Yeah right, It's ALL ABOUT WINNING when you're in the olympics...you can't fool me! I wonder how many bones these guys broke trying to get here. Now I ask you, WHYYYYYYYYYY?
"I like jumping." they say. And I say, the people in the ER like seeing you coming in all shattered in a million pieces!!! Please...
Well, night owl's olympic review must come to a close. Thanks for being here tonight!
