    You fired off a letter to the talk show host who referred to Michelle Kwan as Nancy Kwan.

    When I was in grade school, there was a girl who actually took skating lessons and once told the teacher that she wants to be like Elizabeth Kwan. I shouted out that her name is Michelle after which I lost points for the day...

    Assuming that your classmate was confusing MK w/ someone else, now you've got me trying to remember skaters of MK's era named Elizabeth. Talk about obsession...

    FWIW re: your shout-out, I would have done the same thing!

    You find it perfectly reasonable (read: sane) to stay up all night to watch skating when it's in a completely different time zone from where you live

    There was a young skater named Elizabeth Kwon (note spelling) who won the U.S. Novice title in 1998. She was featured in Christine Brennan's book The Edge of Glory as being the next big thing after Michelle. Elizabeth moved up to juniors the next year but her career was cut short by injury. (You are obsessed with figure skating if you know that. )

    That was a very well laid out program!

    Here is the podium for 1999 U.S. Nationals juniors:

    Sara Wheat
    Sasha Cohen
    Jennifer Kirk
    Elizabeth Kwon.

    I was going to say that I don't meet the criteria for being obsessed but I guess I am obsessed b/c I totally knew that.

    Elizabeth Kwon was the Inter-collegiate Ladies National Senior Champ in 2007. She skated for Miami University (Ohio).

    True story from my evening commute:

    You see the "MK" logo on a Michael Kors bag and think "Huh? Is Michelle starting a fashion line?"

    (I've been seeing those bags for years w/ nary a thought of Michelle. Must be the GS influence... )
