    Welcome nixdh!!

    Mine are: Michelle Kwan (the Kween!!, all time favourite of mine), and then in no particular order - Sasha Cohen (hot!! I agree), Debi Thomas (great programs to Dead or Alive and Frankie Goes to Hollywood ), Katarina Witt (hot), Lu Chen (so introspective), Kurt Browning (the best entertainer!!), Brian Boitano (I don't know why but I like him and his programs, especially the 88SP), Maria Butyrskaya (drama on ice), Silvia Fontana (hoootttt!!), Kristi Yamaguchi (always enjoyed her programs), Tonya Harding (great jumps!), Torvill and Dean (magic)

    but many other skaters gave me many positive emotions!! And I'm grateful to them to have given to me that!!

    Too many to mention, but I must admit I have a general tendency to love headcases and former headcases. There is something in them that intrigues me endlessly. Thus not being easy being a figure skating fan... sigh...
