    Funny Dick Button article

    Love him, or hate him (and I love him!), he definitely a colorful character!

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...021101460.html

    He says one high-ranking woman used to skate with her arms so close to her sides it was like she was making "armpit farts."

    Well, Dick, thanks for letting us know your recreational preferences before competitions! He is a hoot! Thanks for the article; I am going to miss him when he is no longer there. Long may he analyze!

    DICK BUTTON: Will you be my VALENTINE?

    Three Cheers for THE greatest, most candid, most tell-it-like-it-is skating commentator of all time!!!!!

    I have to hand it to NBC, for having had enough sense to sign Dick on to do commentating in Torino. He's the perfect counterweight to arrongant suck-up Sandra Bezik. Dick, put a muzzle on that b*****!!!!

    I love the way he picks one thing that gets on his nerves each competition and harps on it, over and over. (Most recently, it was the lady's fanny sticking out on the death spirals.)
    It always gets on my nerves, and by the end of the competition, I'm usually hollering, "All right, Uncle Dick! Enough already!" However, if it hadn't been for a lifetime of listening to Dick Button's critiques, I wouldn't have the first clue what good skating is about.
    Uncle Dick taught me so much about watching figure skating that now:
    I get ticked off if I can't see the man's feet during a pairs lift.
    I notice flutzing. (It's illegal!)
    Flailing arms really offend me.
    The list goes on and on, but I only get half an hour for lunch! Feel free to add to the list, I know I'm not the only one who's been educated by Dick Button!
