    Do you get emotional watching anyone's skates? Not necessarily to the point of feeling weepy - but emotional? This isn't meant as criticism - I'm merely curious. I get the impression that you watch skating from a more... for lack of a better word presenting itself... intellectual perspective. Figure skating can be enjoyed in a lot of ways - and I think that is one of the great things about it - and different things "speak" to different people. But sometimes I think that in a discussion this can lead to people talking at cross purposes, as they aren't coming from the same place, so to speak.
