    I am already a Sarah fan, even if Michelle does not retire. I hope they will compete for a few more seasons.

    I have always liked the evolution and watching new folks take over the top spots. It's nice to see the newcomers come out from behind the shadows of the previous winners and legends. This is how they grow.

    In genral, I am not a fan kind of guy. If someone catches my eye in any sport who in my opinion is special that someone could be considered as my fan.

    In Baseball, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams

    In Track, Roger Bannister

    In Golf, Niklaus (and now Woods)

    In tennis: Laver, McEnroe, Navratilova

    In figure skating: Button, Flemming, Browning, Kwan

    Once they no longer compete I check out the field. As of now, no one can yet be considered as my fan (but that can change).

    Mathman - Did you like the Dodgers? I was broken up when they left Brooklyn.

    I think what we are saying is that one can only be a fan of another if the other is SPECIAL to that individual. One can not rush in and replace someone SPECIAL for the sake of becoming a fan of another.

    One can, however, see talent in others, and there is a lot in figure skating. Hopefully the judges will select on talent.

    Joe, I loved the Dodgers of the 50's. Even though I lived out West and I never saw them in person, this is the only team that I can still name: Campanella, Hodges, Robinson, Reece (my favorite as a boy, along with Willie Mays), Hoak, Furillo, Snyder and Amoros. (OK, for baseball purists out there, by 1954 Junior Gilliam had taken over regular duties at second, as Jackie Robinson was nearing the end of his career.)

    Good point about an athlete meaning something special to their fans, quite apart from having exceptional skills. Michelle Kwan just knocks my emotional socks off. I don't expect that any of the next generation will mean as much to me, be they ever so talented and full of grace.
