This and That
The producers of Alice In Wonderland On ice graciously allowed Johnny Weir to wear selections from his own wardrobe for his Mad Hatter number.
Not sure if this is recent, but a video of Lambiel in Kings On Ice in Moscow was just posted on youtube. It is another excuse to marvel over his fluidity.
Twenty Questions with Paul Ruggeri
Suzanne Yoculan became a grandmother on New Year's Day!
A Universal Sports blog entry on Evan Lysacek that ends with a tremendously back-handed compliment about respecting his work ethic, even though most fans prefer other skaters. Glorious.
This is a montage of the Gym Dogs made by a fan. We expected to have video of many of their intrasquads, since Jay announced there would be on twitter. By this time, they'll likely be competing before we see anything. Things have changed in Athens since the Media Whore Ms. Yoculan was around. We used to know what kind of cookies Hilary Mauro was baking and what everyone's BMI was (the Chelsa Byrd years.) It is sad but true that it take's Jay Clark's man servant, Kevin Copp, to get anything done. In this day and age, a lack of video tends to be perceived as a sign that the team isn't doing very well. With Ding only a maybe for bars, Nuccio's chronic calamities and Kaylan Earls out for the season, it could very well be true.
Team Japan loves to play a little table tennis. One doesn't need to know the language to be utterly captivated by whatever they do on Japanese Television. I believe this was their nightly newscast. This is even better than when Donny and Marie made the cast of Stars On Ice play Twister.
