Caesars Tribute Videos
The Caesars Tribute to the Golden Age of American Skating may have been the only good Disson Skating event ever. We can thank Nancy's Jewish husband for shelling out the money to get almost every name skater there. Maybe if he opened his wallet a bit more, Kwan would've made an appearance? That said, they delivered everything my old queen heart could ever wish to see. Nancy and Paul performing that signature Mary Scotvold number! It was as though Mary's husky smoker voice was singing to all of us through our hearts. I'm still broken up about Jill Trenary not making an appearance, but I'll have to get over it.
It is absolutely wrong that we had to be subjected to Sarah Hughes in lieu of watching Caryn Kadavy, who performs in almost ever Disson show. They make her skate to Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Ashley Tisdale and whoever else they scrounge up, yet they couldn't show her performing a number she actually spent time preparing.
Debi Thomas looked rather fierce, though my mother insists that she should not have been wearing a two piece.
Rudy performed the signature token gay number Tom Collins paid him to do year after year after year (to detract attention from all of the other gays on the tour.)
The Truck Driver and the Waitress
The audio doesn't work, but you can see Tara Lipinski skating for the first time in years.
She isn't shown here, but Vera Wang was shown looking out of it and lusting after Evan Lysacek like an old hag. Those two have one hell of a bizarre relationship. Then again, look at the inspiration her provided her for that Firebird costume. Right up there with Michelle's 2002 Olympic Short Dress...
Nancy got to perform in a dress NOT designed by Vera Wang. The second Nancy left Vera, the dresses became long and matronly.
Straight from Yentl to an ice rink near you!
Sasha Cohen attempting to be sexy and failing miserably.
And those who weren't shown:
