The thread is not about Michelle; it is not about Sasha; it is not about Irina.
It's about the SPORT
My fault. I'm assuming that there is a decline in interest in figure skating. Agree? If not, just say the Sport is just as fine as it was in 1998.
If yes, I am assuming that a Michelle win in 2006 will make the Sport as interesting as it was in 1998 or the possibility that some other skater can bring the Sport into the 'most watched event in TV land.
My mentioning MK was only because of her continual popularity.
(Smarty, btw, will more than likely be in the Breeders Cup as I assume Birdstone will be also.)
