As for training human to watch skating (or did you mean the cats). Try suggesting a summer comp sometime. I was showing my human some of the videos of the Broadmoor open and he very quickly said he would be happy to take me on a date to something like that. I think he found the lack of costumes refreshing to be honest. He can appreciate the physical nature of the sport, but he can't always get the costumes. Also try pointing Kori out to your husband or "the hot coach" as my better half calls her every time the camera cuts to her. He found the red head coach sending her skater out to skate to Irish music a bit clever and endearing.
To take it back to Jason and his off ice training since the handstand walk is so popular (as it should be!) not sure if this has ever shown up on here and searching for it through this thread is a bit daunting, but he did a podcast http://competitorradio.competitor.co...3/jason-brown/ in March for a sports show that talked a bit about his training routine. Essentially training for Iron Man competitions is a large part of it (he claims he would love to do one. . . I would so love to see that. Frankly I think it would be really great for the sport, people don't get that this is a sport and these are athletes, seeing a figure skater kick some burly guys asses in an Iron Man comp would be awesome). Overall it was nice to get to hear him talk in a less rushed interview where he has time to say what he wants. Also the part where the hosts start talking about "quads" meaning quadricep is a bit amusing.
