If it was one of the hanging balls from the clown costume, I think that counts as "you should have known better." I'd expect the same thing to happen if there were sparkles or decoration that wasn't attached properly. I don't think it would have been called if someone caught a skate in a skirt or shirt sleeve and a piece came off.Originally posted by Ptichka

Belbin and Agosto would have been murdered last year with their OD dress that shed feathers all over the ice.
