    Exclamation Out Yourself!!!

    Well, this thread is another delicate one, and it will probably starving to death: I wonder if Golden Skate posters actually "dare" to put all skaters they can think of in categories, plain and simple, a "blah"-, "neutral"-, "prefered"- and "extraordinary" section! Courage enough?

    I'm big on beautiful skating and that is Michelle Kwan, win or lose. There are a number of male skater I find to be beaufitul skaters: Klimkin, Lambiel, maybe Johnny.

    As far as competitive skating is concerned, i enjoy watching the winner on that night the judges said Him/Her. Unless, of course there was hanky pankey.
