    Mishin -- Russian Ladies "Too Big" to Skate

    Russian women are better suited for building railroads than for figure skating. Here is the link:

    Isn't it sad that Russia's never been able to put together a decent ballet or a winning gymnastics team?

    Well, as a certified member of the "been groped by Mishin club," the second option is certainly plausible. He did buy me a glass a wine first, though. So it's all cool.

    I find this interesting coming from a man who skated with Tamara Moskvina, who's, what, 4'9 and weighs about as much as a Dixie cup.

    I don't think this was meant to be taken seriously. He's got rather a wicked sense of humor from what I understand; maybe this was a ploy to get Slutskaya and Sokolova really fired up.

    Mishin sure has a wicked sence of humor

    after the men's short, he said that Evgeni left the whole field "castrated".

    Tarasova used to be a pairs skater back in the day. She was small and graceful.

    Now that's the best explanation of why Johnny didn't medal.

    Are you sure they didn't copy this from an April Fool website somewhere? I can't believe he actually said this.

    Or perhaps he just likes making statements to provoke comments, regardless of whether they are true (such as his monthly statement that Plushenko is sick, or injured, or . . .).

    Oh, I easily believe he said. He can be rather -- wickedly eccentric. Or sometimes just flat out rude. I remember him calling Yagudin something along the lines of "too stupid to come in from the rain" when Yags got sick in Nagano. He also once referred to a very young Andrei Griazev as "this little piece of ****" right in front of him. (This isn't as bad as it sounds, tho. First of all, he said it in English to a reporter and Griazev at the time didn't understand any, and secondly, it was rather meant in one of those affectionate, though crusty, ways, rather like when you get on your grandmother's nerves when you're little and she tells you flat out you're just being a pain in the butt today.
