The Utter Brilliance of Uncle Dick


The greatest rant ever by Dick Button. This rant took place at the World Skating Federation press conference held during the 2003 World Championships.

More gems by Dick were granted during the Q+A. His reaction to the question about the elimination of ice dance is stellar.

    "Deceipt is rampant. I don't think I should get too far into that."

    Classic Dick Button. Please, go on...

  2. I love Uncle Dick. It is sad to see how much he has declined in just seven years. Didn't he have a fall at some point after this conference?

  3. He is marvelous! Even though his tongue frequently has to catch up to his brain...

  5. Can we get Uncle Dick to run the ISU? Imagine what skating could be under his guidance.

  7. Oh, WSF. How I wish you had had a chance. But if it wasn't meant to be, at least we get a magical segue from Tonya Harding to tapdancing judges as consolation.

  8. What ever happened to the WSF thing anyway?

  9. DW, I agree with how much older Uncle Dick looks in the last couple of years. I love someone who can say what he wants, in a pleasant yet, this is how it is kind of way.
