But I must confess: If I look deeply into my soul, I'm probably not a skating fan because it's a sport I enjoy. I love skating because it's an art I enjoy. What do I know about sports? I'm happy to see all the jumps, and I appreciate that skaters are among the best-conditioned athletes in the world, but that's not what speeds up my heartbeat when I watch. Someone does a triple toe and someone else does a triple lutz? Cool. Someone sticks her leg out behind her in a vague way, and someone else does a 180-degree spiral? Now, that I'll remember.
Enjoy the World Cup!
