    Peggy

    Michelle Kwan is the epitome of class and decency. Disney came out with the anouncement in support of her at a difficult time in her life. I thank them for that. She didn't stay in Torino so as not to take away the limelight from the skaters who are competing-a very classy gesture on her part and she is to be commended. Don't try to make it less than it is. I wish to GOD some of the posters on this site had half of her decency.

    I do think MK shows class and dignity many times. However, to constantly "ooh" and "aah" about what a "class act" she is, her grace, dignity, etc. like so many reporters and fans do IMO is patronizing her. She is human- I'd bet my life she has her **** days as well where she does "ungraceful" things, etc. No one is perfect.

    JUST MY OPINION.

    which is exactly WHY I said it. I was just waiting for someone to comment on that. You just took the bait.

    It's served it's purpose, so I removed it from my post.

    I didn't say the responses weren't appropriate. I just said they were predictable. What else could I expect...a bunch of people from Golden Skate jumping in and saying she's not really that gracious? . ROFL!

    Oh you sly Dog. That's what I get for being so bored with the men's competition (on right now on NBC) that I'm fooling around reading GS right now.

As a fan of figure skating to Michelle for her contract and good luck to her but with your response.


    I should figure that Michelle's own fans would be happy for her and be the same kind of "class act" she is by not baiting other fans and other skaters. Truly sad. Maybe nothing else to do now that MK is out of the Olys? Let's go after Sasha, then! Or Emily!

    would Kwan do that? NO, if she is the class act everyone says she is! (At least she wouldn't do it in front of a camera.)

    I never watch men's skating, but I watched a few of the programs just because it's the Olympics. Lysacek was pretty good, I thought- he pulled it together after disappointment- but everyone else so far has been less than exciting for me. So even though it's the Olympics, I switched it off. *yawn*

    RD maybe I worded my question wrong. Let me try again. Why does it seem to annoy you when Kwan is praised? Of course she has her bad days and I can guarantee you that more than once she has let out a SMF when falling or during a bikini wax. But she does handle herself well while in the public eye and that's what corporations look for when choosing their representatives. Heck it's Disney, some people would say that being a spokesperson for the mouse isn't that great of a gig. Nancy Kerrigan wasn't too impressed with it, LOL. When I think of Disney I think of Annette Funicello prior to her illness which to me always =gag. I do appreciate her courage dealing with MS though.

    Now RD who actually started the baiting here? Not a Kwan fan. Do you expect Kwans fans to not respond? No one is going after SC or HII they are responding to Peggy. If Kwan fans wanted to do that someone could have started a thread in response to Sasha not doing the media day. Does that make her less classy than Kimmie? IIRC a lot of the uproar from her fans over the Couric interview was that she wanted to discuss herself. So when given the opportunity she walks. The non Sashas might say she was not willing to share the spotlight with Kimmie while her fans might argue back that she was being gracious and magnanamous and allowing Kimmie to have the spotlight to herself.

    Who is baiting who? Who start it? Who continue baiting? Giveme a break.

    No one brought up Sasha and Emily here, you are the first one. Who is baiting?

    because certain fans seem to like to think she has no flaws, can do no wrong, and- my pet peeve- anyone who doesn't agree with them is full of it, selfish, etc. Does that answer the question?

    Now RD who actually started the baiting here? Not a Kwan fan. Do you expect Kwans fans to not respond? No one is going after SC or HII they are responding to Peggy.

    Actually, many of the very same fans who were saying MK was a class act, etc. were the first ones to jump on Cohen after that Katie Couric "interview".

    Fine then. Fair enough. However, I didn't see anything in the original post that was TRULY hateful. It was a simple question. JMO

    RD, the "simple question" was, and I quote, "What happened to gracious Michelle?"

    Well, OK, I guess you're right. I can only give that about a 2.5 on the old snark-meter.

    But anyway, on topic, I do not understand what Peggy thinks is "ungracious" about accepting a contract to promote Disney enterprises.
