    Figure Skating is a sport? :confused:

    I was never a figure skater but I skated a lot, and taught skate lessons for beginners. Falling on ice is a lot harder than falling on grass. ;)

    There was some competition on TV tonight. Forget what it was. I saw the Olympic prelims in Atlanta years ago when Brian Boingtono was trying out. Very cool.

    Yeah- I took the kids skating in late December. I even got out there for a couple hours. Hadn't been on the ice in over 20 years. At least I managed to stay on my feet. Then, I get home and slip on some ice and cracked a couple of ribs. Go figger.

    The competion is here in Spokane. :D

    That sucks! I haven't ice skated in a few years, I wonder if I could still do it. I used to live at the ice rink on weekends, not a lot to do around here in the winter except skiing and ice skating.
