It looks like Mother Russia will host the 2011 World Figure Skating Championships, as the government has offered to cover all of the costs. It is almost as though the Soviet Sports Machine mentality still exists. Six countries have bid, including the US (Colorado Springs and Lake Placid), Canada (Vancouver), Croatia, Finland and Austria. An announcement is expected by Friday. If I was a skater, there is no place I'd rather go than Austria in spring time. I'd be all over that Sound of Music tour like the most obnoxious tourist possible. Even though Graz is Austria's bid city, there is no way I'd leave that country without twirling through the Alps in drapes.
