    Ah I confused you with Nadine. Nan's lips did turn an alrming shade of blue... Well I'm glad to hear that he is feeling better. Thanks for the update, SF. Hope the rest of the skaters who were affected are fine now as well.

    I wouldn't go that far, but I do agree you couldn't really argue with Chan's skate the other night.

    I found this half hour film featuring Misha Ge's grandfather, an artist born in N E China of Russian mother. Watch Little Misha from 4:30 to 6:30! and at 27:41 till the end. Unlike his Grand Dad, Misha has great family support for his interests and talents. At 17, Grandfather literally ran away from home in the snow trying to get to Beijing to study arts. He made it there on foot. Misha's father appeared at 12:12 talking about being sent to study Arts in Russia, also at 17, by train, where he fell in love with Misha's Mom. He got his mother's blessing but without telling his father, married his Russian girlfriend at the Embassy. Misha's grandfather fell in love with the Gobi Desert and changed his ordinary Chinese name to Ge (Gobi) Sha (sand, shamo=desert). That's why Misha's family name is rather unusual, different from my guess. Quite an interesting life. Very touching about his reunion with his sister and mother after 33 years. At the end of the film, his biggest wish was to cheer on his grandson at 2008 Olympics when he would be 77 years old. (This film must have been made before the change of Winter Olympic years. Misha looked about 10.)

Don't ever do that to a Canadian again please.

    Paatrick's 4CC FS CBC version with Kurt and Tracy

    I like how the Canadian commentators point out what make for great skating. But as with most commentators, the highest respect is paid with silence. Waiting for longer version including replays and comments, as well as Takahashi's and others' with insights from Kurt and Tracy.

    Thanks SF. Just watched it. And thanks for the translation as I don't understand Mandarin Is Misha's grandad half Russian and half Chinese? He looks very Caucasoid though but his son (ie. Misha's dad) looks Eurasian. Misha probably looks very much like his mother not an inch of Mongoloid look in him. So where is his grandad and parents living now? Interestingly that Grandad Ge is featured on China's t.v.

    Durian, that video is titled Faces OF The Time, probably a series featuring persons of interests and character. Grandpa Ge Sha is an accomplished artist arising from poverty, running from home while being chased in the snow to pursue his real interest and passion in life, ending up a successful artist but not seeing his family for 33 years. His mother was Russian, doing laundry to support the family and his father wanted him to learn a practical trade. I assumed his wife is Chinese as his son and grandson are both raised Chinese though his son married a Russian like his gradpa. Thus Ge Misha's mother and great grandmother are both Russian. I was puzzled though when watching a video about him as, when asked how to pronounce his family name, he said "gee" instead of "ke".

    Thanks again SF. Interesting family history of Misha's grandad.
    I like Kurt as a commentator. Reason being, as a non-skater myself, I find that I learn so much from bi-partisan and experienced sports commentators. They are able to point out what went wrong and what is good, and this is applicable to all sports. Thanks for the video link.
