    Happy Nancy-Got-Whacked Day!


    This day in 1994 was the day someone played baseball with Nancy Kerrigan's kneecap. Without this incident, figure skating would not have enjoyed a huge surge of visibility that helped Michelle Kwan achieve her celebrity. All it took was the injury of one horse-faced skater and the disgrace of Miss Trailer Park skater.

    Awww, I'm getting all sentimental. I'm going to celebrate by watching Tonya's '94 Nationals LP to "Jurrarsic Park." Skating to images of enormous dinosaurs that died out 50 million years ago--it was so moving, especially with Tonya's costume that had the cleavage cut out and filled in with nude Illusion fabric that went about down to her navel and almost out to her armpits. I get all wistful when I think of the Olympic team photo, with Nancy and Tonya sitting next to each other, smiling away, as if they were best buds.

    I'm also going down to the local video arcade to play a commemorative game of "Whack-a-Mole." It's not the same as whacking a knee, but I think it's the thought that counts. I wonder if it will be noted on the nightly news?

    Hmm, maybe i'll write to International Figure Skating mag and suggest that along with the date for SOI and nats include Nancy Knee Wacking Day.
    Now, as if it wasn't enough that I had to go back to school today, I have a major science project that includes titrating calcium and putting graphs on a board while typing up an 8 page report. And the simester ends in a week. Lovely.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\">

    <span style="colorurple;font-family:georgia;font-size:x-small;">Ah, I remember the day well. I was in graduate school (for the first time...) getting a degree in creative writing. I'd written a novella about two American female figure skaters who weren't very nice to one another, and everyone said it was "unrealistic."

    On this day, in 1994, my mom called and I was vindicated.

    My classmates apologized...

    Oh, it also featured a 14 year old who could jump but had no artistry...sometimes I scare myself...

    Cheers,

    In celebration of the day, I hung a piece of the broken lace that Tonya presented to the judges at Lillehammer on my xmas tree that I have yet to dismantle

    Next year we should have a 10th anniversary party in honor of Nancy's knee and Tonya's tacky purple outfit -- geez, has it been that long ..10 years come and gone so fast, I might as well be dreamin' (yes, that's the old oprah opening)

    speaking of oprah, Fetal, the "day in the life of an obese person" is to be re-aired tomorrow. Set your VCR!

    what a cruel thread


    i don't know what is meaner. calling nancy kerrigan a horse face or everybody ignoring that mean remark. i bet someone would of complained about this thread if it bashed the physical looks of a popular skater like mk or yags.

    Re: what a cruel thread


    <span style="colorurple;font-family:georgia;font-size:x-small;">considering that my beloved Evgeni's nose gets a whole bunch of grief on this board, you just have to take what's said in stride. If you don't think Nancy looks like a horse, say so. We all have different opinions, please feel free to express yours.

    personal insults


    let see if i get this straight. is this like the gossip board? no rules here? we can make fun of unbecoming physical traits and its up to others to defend them or not? nothing is off-ground? not sasha's ears? plushy's nose? or mk's nose? that is a strange mentality but just so we're clear.

    I went around for months with a signature that said Michelle Kwan was a man, and I only received three death threats and two lawsuits.

    But anyways, if celebrities don't want to be insulted, they shouldn't expect to be exalted either. Celebrities put themselves out there, and we can only praise them? Like I said on another thread, if any celebrity is offended by my comments about them, they only need send me a picture of them crying or popping a vein over a computer screen, and I promise I will cease and desist and not use that picture for evil :evil: purposes.

    Good Charlotte
    Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous:

    Always see it on T.V.
    Read it in the magazines
    celebrities who want sympathy
    all they do is piss and moan
    inside the rolling stone
    talking about how hard life can be

    I'd like to see them spend the week
    living life out on the street
    I don't think they would survive
    if they could spend a day or two
    walking in someone else's shoes
    I think they'd stumble and they'd fall
    (they would fall, fall)

    Lifestyles of the rich and the famous
    they're always complainin
    always complainin
    if money is such a problem
    well they got mansions
    think we should rob them

    Well did you know when you're famous you could kill your wife
    but there's no such thing as 25 to life
    as long as you've got the cash, to pay for Cochrane
    and did you know if you were caught and you were smoking crack
    McDonalds wouldn't even want to take you back
    you could always just run for mayor, of D.C.

    Lifestyles of the rich and the famous
    they're always complainin
    always complainin
    if money is such a problem
    you got so many problems
    think I could solve them
    lifestyles of the rich and famous
    we'll take your clothes, cash cards, and homes just stop complainin
    Lifestyles of the rich and famous
    Lifestyles of the rich and famous
    Lifestyles of the rich and famous
