    Just A Few Little Things

    One thing I loved about The Oregonian coverage was the special section on Tuesday, 4 January, which not only showed how ice was prepared, including the infrastructure of the rink, but also how the zamboni works in four steps: 1. shaving the ice, 2. collecting the sludge, 3. smoothing the ice with a "conditioner" and 4. spreading clean water on the surface with a towel.

    Also, on 10 January I received a text message from my friend Chris, a Portland native:
    Very scary...today's newspaper projects what Disney character each top skater would be...help me! They are trying to keep people interested.

    Did your freind send the list? I want to play. Kimmie Meissner = Ariel. Evan Lysacek = Goofy.

    Have you seen the ads for "Nemo on Ice?"

    He didn't, because he knew I wouldn't get any of the references past 1965

    Mathman,


    It was mostly comparing the ladies to the Disney Princess set, but they did compare Tonya Harding to The Beast (as in Beauty and The Beast). Not very nice at all.

    Kimmie Meissner = Ariel:

    "I just want to be...part of this world."

    Legs! I got legs! I wonder what I can do with them?

    Russian skaters and coaches = Johnny Appleseed:

    "Get on a wagon rollin' West,
    Out to the great unknown!
    Get on a wagon rollin' West or you'll be left alone!"

    The MK Forum:

    "Who's the leader of the club
    That's made for you and me?
    M-I-C! M-I-C! H-E-L-L-E!!!"

    Mao Asada:

    "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
    Super spins, she always wins, her jumps are quite ferocius!
    Super speed, a sweetie too, she really is precocious!
    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"

    Everybody = Jiminy Cricket
