Maybe this is a wrong subject as a thread, but I just watched the exhibition at Skate America and I had a big problem with the 'jokes'. Not in general, although American humour usually is not mine. No problem, I just don't think it's funny and that's it. But tonight was something else. Why start a silly card game with a guy who is going to skate a tribute to his late younger brother? I think many officials knew Keegan Messing was going to do that. I mean, he was carrying this big photograph around, no secret. And then you ask him to take part in a game about inflated balls or not? Very funny, but not when you're planning to do a skate in honour of your brother. I don't blame the illusionist (how could he know?) but why did they do this? Why not leave him alone and let him do his thing? I was crying when he skated, but also angry with the organisors. Is this just me? Am I too sensitive or something? But I really think this whole thing was abusing the way Keegan was feeling. Not necessary either. Why not do that kind of game with another skater who hasn't just recently lost his brother? Sorry for the emotional content but I can't help it. Is this where we're going...trying to make fun of someone (and not succeeding) who is genuinely grieving? Yuck.
