    And then there was Scott Hamilton's autobiography, "Landing It".

    Speaking of Josee Chouinard, I've always been somewhat puzzled by THIS picture. It's just begging to be captioned, but I'm not sure what to write.

    I always thought Death Sprial would be a good name for a biography of a depressed pairs skater....
    Horrible, I know.

    There is a skating book called "Death Spiral" by Clyde Linsley. It's a skating mystery.

    It may be from that ProAm Canadian Open of 2001 where Josee defeated Michelle for the gold medal skating a program choreographed by Lori Nichol in which she portrayed a mime called Pierrot. IIRC, the judges were looking for something "different" for the artistic program, something leaning more towards what a pro program would look like, and Josee fulfilled that condition, whereas Michelle, who skated a lovely program, did not. She skated a standard amateur type program and was penalized accordingly.

    If this photo was indeed from this competition, then the caption would be, in referring to the gold medal:


    "It's MIME, and you can't have it!"

    The only "Death Spiral" that I know of is by Meredith Phillips and it came out in the '80's. I have that book.

    "It's MIME, and you can't have it!"
    These two were so brilliant they left me groaning and rolling on the floor in pain. PAIN, I say!

    God, what I have I started with this thread?

    Other possibilities for titles of skating books:

    Kiss 'n' Cry - the Oksana Baiul story

    Slipping and Sliding - [sadly, could fit a number of skaters]

    Skate Guard - the story of the Kerrigan-Harding Saga, from the eyes of Tonya's bodyguard, Shawn Ekhardt

    Mishin Possible - the Alexei Mishin story
