    I'm a fan of all disciplines. Enjoy the singles (women & men ) then pairs and finally dancing. The criteria for each discipline to me is quite facinating. And to see a particular skater or pair or team excel and bring viewers to their feet or tears is what figure skating is all about. The country of origin does not matter. It's that special moment in time where everything came together to produce something so memorable that will live on long after the skater(s) have finished their careers. It's like seeing Tiger Woods sink that putt at the British Open in the dark. The work ethic that got him to that point at that time, well, it's almost beyond description.

    I enjoy all the disciplines. Sometimes I'm a little more interested in one group than another but I always watch all I can.

    What Kind of Fan am I?

    In all honesty, during skating season, I am a fanatic, and literally plan my day around when I can get web updates and the latest news. At the end of the season, I literally go through withdraw symptoms. Overall, love the ladies the best, but watch and enjoy everything faithfully.

    As for skating disciplines, I like singles and pairs. I don't really get that much into ice dancing. With singles and pairs, there are straight forward elements that can be compared. In dance, there doesn't seem to be a way that one routine can be compared to another.

    During the season, I can watch a lot of skating. I do have to be careful not to watch too much. I can burn out so easily. That's what happened during the 2002 Olympics. After Worlds, I couldn't bring myself to watch skating until the start of the season.

    Thumbs up

    Previously, I didn't much care for the dance but the last few years have liked it just as much as the rest. I LOVE them all. I also sort of plan my life around them. I wish I could see more live.
    I have taped just about anything and everything there is on tv and haven't kept up on getting them organized nor edited. So, if I ever get laid up and that's all I can do, then I will try to catch up. After both the surgeries I had in the last few years thought I would catch up then but I just got to feeling too well to sit around. How's that for a 74 year old gramma!

    I'm a fan of the sport - I'm just passionate about skating, and often when I'm not doing it, I'm thinking about it, conditioning for it, reading technical publications about it, and watching instructional videos for it.

    While I love to watch a good performance (solo, pairs, dance), I don't really follow individual skaters much except to get ideas for things I might try or strive for. I'm woefully ignorant of the various skaters, their strengths, etc. It's one of the reasons I enjoy lurking from time to time on "The Edge" side of Golden Skate, because I love all of your thoughtful posts and good-natured arguing about various skaters.

    But let me say that I absolutely understand why so many of you are fanatical about your favorites--skating is an awesome sport! For those who have never done it themselves, it may be hard to understand just how grueling and difficult it can be, because of course your fave skater makes it look absolutely effortless!

    Ladies is my favorite. Then men and pairs. Dance is my least favorite but I like some teams.

    I'm a dance fan, primarily. Dance is such a hard discipline. It's easy for those who just watch to comment on how easy it is, but if you did what the ice dancers do day in and day out, you'd know that it's just as strenuous, if not more, than singles/pairs skaters who do jump.
