    Ice Dancer for Sale

    I saw this posted on another site:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MESE:IT

    I think he's really cute. Though for that kind of money he had better do something more than ice dance.

    That's probably why there are a whopping ZERO bids so far!

    Looks to me like skating related SPAM.

    I would also like to see that bronze medal.

    "James stands at a towering 5'6" and weighs 120lb"
    Well, I suppose in Japan he might tower over a few people. I wonder if this is how Tiffany Stiegler located her latest partner.[/CENTER]

    The SKATING magazine article on the 2003 Nationals does list the Dance bronze medallists as being Shannon Wingle and James Warren, and does state that Warren is a former British novice champion. Now, as to whether the e-bay guy is actually the same guy -- well, the resemblance between the picture on e-bay and the picture in SKATING is to me inconclusive.

    When I first saw the title of this thread, I though it was someone's ironic comment on Peter Tchernyshev's decision to apply for Canadian citizenship to be able to compete in Torino in 2006.

    Skater boys are very expensive, but I guess the demand is greater than the supply...

    My friends run a dance studio. They say it's common for a girl's parents to pay for at least a part of the fee for her partner, since they always have a shortage of boys who aren't afraid to dance. I suppose it should be far worse for ice dancing.

    With the announcement of less prize money for ISU events, the pro tours being pared down, and pro competions being basically nil....I'd say for 120,000 smakers MINIMUM plus throw in expenses for a year
    You might just be able to get Vic Kratz to come out of retirement for a season

    Piel, maybe we should all pitch in and bid. I'm sure Paula would be pleased.

    Guess I can see it

    Guess I can see why one might have to pick up expenses and pay a salary for a partner... but, well, I think that the judges can tell when a skater is just doing their job and when they are doing it for the love of it. The marks may reflect it.
