    Did anyone post Brian Boitano's skate in Alaska? Don't have a link. Even more than his Olympic LP, I think of that special where he is skating outside in someplace Toni probably has been or may live there for all I know. I see him in his long underwear doing those spread eagles. Well, they looked like long johns, LOL.

    I'm not sure which Glacier he skated on, I believe the program was called "Fountain"??? It is definitely a signature performance, but as far as I know I've not been to that lake that he was on.

    I think it's called "Water Fountain," by David Foster (the music producer who has done a lot of neat instrumentals, too, including the "Winter Games" (Can't You Feel It?) theme song form the 1988 Calgary Olympics).

    Brian Boitano's Water Fountain on the glacier program
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nVccf6Mzs4

    And what I always think of his signature piece-the boy with bravado skating to Les Patineurs, skated at US Nationals in 1988, when the rest of us who didn't get any GP coverage were shocked at what Sandra Bezic had made of Brian:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah3Fm...eature=related

    I always get a kick out of the the 19th century "grapevine" footwork after the camel spin.

    Not to mention the nods to the posture and frilly shirt of the Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddin
    http://www.artofskating.com/khxc/med...-C10082695.jpg

    And of course his Olympic LP, a classic:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEYNskBniw0

    Although even more classic in the Canadian coverage, which I couldn't find on youtube. Brian skated first. And Johnny Esaw (the Canadian Terry Gannon of the era) went nuts-"where are the 6.0's????" The other commentators tried to calm him down, saying, "Johnny, the judges have to leave room for "SOMEONE ELSE".

    For me, of course its gotta be Michelle at 2004 Nationals. From the skating to the attitude - this is one person who knows just how sick they are... I love Michelle Kwan, the athlete, but her swag is what kills me...

    Is it possible that a signature program is one that was never performed?
    Maybe not - but I still remember the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics and the night Tai and Randy had to withdraw.

    Here is a look back at how it unfolded:

    Here are Randy and Tai winning the World Championship in 1979.

    I still have trouble at times appreciating teams where the guy is a foot or more taller and a 100 pounds heavier than the girl. I typically think there is something visually awkward by such a large size difference no matter how well they skate.

    Wow what a fabulous trip down memory lane! My favorite is Michelle Kwan EOE World Pro - link has already been posted. I've really enjoyed Paul Wylie, Brian Orser, Kristi and all the others. Haven't seen most of these programs in a very long time. I remember a program from Brian Orser called Ebbtide and it was wonderful. Can't find it on youtube. Does anyone have a link they can post?

    It sort of sums up his whole career, doesn't it?

    i was fortunate to see Ebbtide live at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, AK in 1999. That whole show renewed my love for the sport.

    A lot of good ones.

    Did anyone mention Joubert's Matrix program?


    I would also add Umbrellas of Cherbourg for Punsalen & Swallow
