When she was up on the platform with Mickey Mouse she said, "This is dumb. I hate it. This is the corniest thing I have ever done." This was picked up on the microphone, and Nancy caught some flack for being ungracious to Mickey.
Disney takes a dim view of anyone dissing the Mouse.
^^Yeah Nancy had already put her foot in her mouth earlier at the Olympics when she was overheard dissing Oskana for taking too long to come out for the medal ceremony (apparently Oskana was fixing her make up because of all her tears) Maybe someone remembers. It was broadcasted live on t.v. and I was watching but I am having a brain freeze and cannot remember the exact words. It was all over the news the next day. Then she goes and disses Mickey. Disney and Mickey were a much better fit with Michelle than with Nancy.
I remember that Kerrigan quote, darkestmoon..it came after some pacing and looking annoyed. Skaters please take note..it's also a bad idea to wear a gold costume as if you've got it in the bag and then appear ungracious when you lose.To add to weirdness of it all ,they couldn't find the Ukrainian anthem..I'm sure that spawned a few conspiracy theories...Then, after Nancy's Mickey slip-up , Oksana was quoted in the press saying she loved Mickey (and Disneyland )..Oh, the good old days !
As much as I felt bad for Kerrigan getting whacked on the knee by Tonya's thugs, she didn't endear herself by bad mouthing Oksana at the medal ceremony and the unnecessary comment at the Disney parade. I'm sure they paid her very well for the appearance and isn't it an honor to be asked to do that? I also always felt Kristy Yamaguchi got jiff on endorsement especially compared to Kerrigan. Kristy won a OGM and two world championship plus a US championship. Kerrigan got a silver at the Olympics and no world championship and one US championship. And IMO Kristy has a nicer personality. Oh well, at least Kristy won Dancing with the stars. Wouldn't it be fun if they had a special Dancing with the stars only with past figure skating champions? That might get their competitive juices flowing again!!
Edit: Possible nominees for Figure Skating Dancing with the Stars
Hmmmm let's see... how about (remember this is for a US audience):
Torvil and Dean (okay they might be a bit too old)
Plushenko (wouldn't that be delicious? He could point #1 during his dance!)
Jamie Sele/David Pelletier
Arakawa (her English might limit her here)
Kurt Browning (he can bring his ballerina wife)
