You know anyone in the Internet especially those who doesn't have a life could claim they are whoever they want to be! Yes you can tell how high a person jumps in T.V. especially if you've seen them live, two I I haven't read anything from your post that tells me you've even ever been out to a skating rink!

but you are mistaken...
as i said before, this forum is not about me
but about the sport...and sharing perspectives
a skater doesn't skate in a vacuumn and for
me it is interesting to learn what others think
of the sport, whether competitor, social skater
As far as perspectives and opinions, you may
or may not be interested to know that my
partner (if you want to believe i actually had one)
shares the exact same opinion on the competition
and its outcome. perhaps that is indicative of
our training, our definition of what figure skating
is or could be, and what we strove to achieve
on the ice. face it, there will always be tension
between artistry and sport. that's what makes
figure skating so compelling.
i'd rather talk about sasha, kimmie, etc...
than speak any more about whether or not
i actually set foot on the ice... so let's end
this and get on with skating talk, shall we?
