This and That
No matter what she does, I can't help loving and supporting Nicole Bobek. It is almost like a familial love where we have to forgive her. Our girl is far from perfect, but she can perform. We've sat through years of IJS programs designed to be back with supposed 'good skating,' yet Nicole prepares for an ice show and films herself in an empty rink and just blows everyone away. Dick Button once said that 'she knows what the audience wants and gives it to us.' Is Nicole doing the most complex edges? No. She is putting on a performance and it is fabulous. Unfortunately, Nicole's charisma cannot be taught.
Great article on Nicole preparing with some help from Todd, Callaghan and JoJo Starbuck.
