The Wonderful World of Ice Dance



Ice Dance was a fabulous discipline before there were rules. Winning medals was determined based on whether or not you were from Moscow or bought Tarasova a brand new fur for Christmas. In 2003, Tatiana Navka was NOT pleased to have lost out on a bronze medal at Worlds. The Russians did not bribe enough judges to make up for the randomized scores that counted. It was complete bullshit in the eyes of our grand diva. Navka had never been so hurt. The freakin lights were turned off during her free dance in Nagano and now she had to come to the US of fucking A for a little more bullshit. To make matters worse, her former husband got the judges to finally reward his floozie of the week with a World Title. It may have been a "get the gold and leave!" medal, but that Canadian Bitch would be able to call herself a World Champion for all of eternity. As much as one would like to feel badly for Tatiana, one cannot help but be amused by her openly pissed off reaction in the Kiss and Cry. Mother Russia never bothered to teach their athletes about "sportsmanship." One can only imagine how a Russian Academy Awards would go down. There would be no fake congratulatory smiles to go around. How about a nice middle finger for the camera?! Ya, that's how I feel about fourth place too.

  1. Navka did look hurt at that one. I would feel sorry for her but for the fact I know she really was only concerned that the cheating should be for herself.

    Another wonderful thing about this beautiful diva is the way she sold her happy marriage and family to the US media. She was so charming in the fluff pieces. It made me want to be her best gay friend.

    I think Navka's line was pretty even if she didn't know how to point her toes.

  5. Rough translation of the magazine quote: "Personally, I like sex before and after. Just not in lieu of speech."

  7. Navka got the last laugh by winning Worlds the next year with that ridiculous Austin Powers program over the genius Handel program by the Bulgarians.

  9. After that display I don't know why the judges would want to give them anything but I guess enough corrupt judges only care about what they could get for themselves.

  10. It was beautiful. Not the pretty kind of beautiful, but the rugged, dirty kind of beautiful.
