    Please don't post photos unless you are over 21!

    1 My name is Doris (really)
    2 I'm 65
    3. Connecticut
    4. I have lots of favorite skaters, most of them ice dancers
    5. I started watching skating during the 1960 Olympics. Carol Heiss won the ladies. I thought she was wonderful. My fandom was really sealed though at the 1964 Olympics. The Protopopovs were beyond wonderful They were a total revelation
    6. This board & skating fandom in general is my main hobby but I love my garden, boating, cooking and reading and travel, when I can afford it.

    5. always watched Olympic figure skating since 1968. Had the Dorothy Hamill wedge cut for several years. Became a diehard fs fan during the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics (The Battle of the Brians, G&G, & Midori Ito did it for me). So sorry we didn't follow the comps between 1984-1988! Then there was no turning back. We try to attend regional comps, shows, when possible, and we skate recreationally.
    6. singing in a chorus, listening to music, attending concerts and theaters Broadway musicals in particular), working out on the treadmill, swimming, bike riding, traveling, getting together with friends, volunteer work in my school

    2. 63
    3. Spokane WA
    4. D/W, Mirai, MK...heck, I love 'em all.
    5. Went to live performance in Spokane in the last century. Learned three things. I was desparately in love with Angelika Krylova, figure skaters are really small people, (I am 6'2") but there was nothing small about their courage, artisty and athletism.
    6. Motorcycle touring, camping, airplanes, air races, airshows, and shooting single shot antique rifles at metal sihouettes of buffaloes at 800 yards. Partying at Nationals, SA, Worlds and Four Conts. Beautiful women. Skaters that dont tweet the "F" word.

    1.) Mai P.
    2.) Lucky 30!
    3.) Washington State (via Philadelphia, Louisville, Chicago and several other cities and towns -- I lived in a lot of places!)
    4.) Davis + White, Shibutanis, Ross Miner, Akiko Suzuki, Savchenko/Szolkowy, Shen/Zhao, Rachael Flatt, Daisuke Takahashi, Kristi Yamguchi, Michelle Kwan, Midori Ito, Tonya Harding (later in life). Really there are more than that...and in general I don't actively dislike any skater. I always make a point to admire skaters when they bring forth great programs...(Tatsuki Machida and Bobrova/Soloviev are key examples this season).
    5.) Been following it casually since I was about 9, when I watched the 1991 World Championships (I remember it....Will KRISTI WIN WITHOUT A TRIPLE AXEL? DUM DUM DUM!!). But I didn't really get into it until the 2009 World Championships when I saw Yuna win in high-definition TV.
    6.) Reading, running, cooking, watching Korean dramas, looking up random stuff on wikipedia, staying abreast on technology, meeting with friends, board games, listening to all sorts of music from classical to indie rock, traveling and wondering how I can keep up with all my hobbies....
