Figure skating puts up big ratings. There’s probably a case to be made for the theory that if you love gossip, you also love figure skating. Figure skating is straight up drama. No doubt many of you watched last night. Those little girls have so much fight.
While Yu-Na was delivering a flawless performance and Mao Asada was landing 2 clean triple axels (!) Michelle Kwan and Katarina Witt were watching from the stands emoting during each program. Not sure exactly why I’m so excited by these photos. I love the notion that they are friends.
It’s always hard at this time. To remember that Michelle never won Olympic gold. Let’s be absurdly melodramatic for a moment because this is skating after all: Michelle denied is one of the great tragedies of my life.
