    Interesting Layman's Concept of Figure Skating from Watching Pairs

    http://www.time.com/time/world/artic...964423,00.html

    It's a good read about a father's view about figure skating. His 3 year old kid seemed to like it, but will the father become an ardent fan? He does give us, the ardent fans allocades for learning that scoring system.

    Cute story. We've been preaching to the wrong potential converts. It turns out a little child shall lead them...

    Reminds me of the first time I ever saw Figure Skating. I fell in love right away. It's inconceivable to me how anyone could ever consider it a "sissy sport". I'm both heartened and dismayed that it took the author his 3-year-old son's interest in it to take a closer look and appreciate the skaters. Better now than never, though.

    It is a very funny article, it does relate to how most people watch it really and it's nice to see a new fan. I think men's tonight will cement that love lol
