    That's harder than it looks! Gee...John Curry at the 1976 Olympics, or Michelle's Nationals in 1998, or the Washington, D.C., Worlds in 2003 where we could see both Michelle and Shen/Zhao, or Vancouver to see both Mao and YuNa? How on Earth can one choose?

    Anything with Denise Beillman! I really enjoy the old commentary though so would you throw in a VHS cassette of the event with my ticket?

    Why? I spins the most!!

    1996 Worlds, ladies event.

    Seeing Lu Chen and Michelle Kwan both skate perfect, for-the-ages performances live would be incredible.

    1903 Worlds ... did Ulrich Salcow offer the gold to Madge Sayers because she deserved it (and was unfairly judged due to her gender)? or for some other reason?

    Wow. I can't answer this but I'm inclined to ask what you would plan to wear to a 1903 FS event? Wow again. Saint Petersburg in 1903.

    Vancouver olympics 2010.
    Laura Lepisto did her best performance and was 6th.
    Yuna Kim and Asada were so great.
    No bad feelings afterwards.

    1988 Olympics! It was wonderful on tv. Men's had Battle of the Brian's, Petrenko's great bronze performances, and good shows by Bowman, Browning, and Wylie. A stellar field.

    In ladies, I want to see Midori Ito's two glorious programs, and Caryn Kadavy's SP.

    Dance had the Duchesnay's great Argentine Tango OSP and Savage Rites FD, and Wilson& McCall's Elite Syncopations FD

    Pairs had G&G's wonderful LP and Selezneva & Makarov had great programs.

    All 4 disciplines had some wonderful performances.

    Other than that, I am sorry I missed the 1996 U.S. Nationals where Rudy Galindo won with his fabulous Baron Rothbart Lp!
