I did my best to watch the men's "short program" in figure skating last night. A few observations:
1. If I never see sequins, sparklies, fuzzies, and spandex on men again, that would be more than fine.
2. There's no way figure skating should be an olympic sport. It's a theatrical competition at best.
3. Most of the routines look just about the same, only slight variations, despite Scott Hamilton and his female sidekick's laudible attempts to pump up our perception of this or that performance.
Finally, there is a good article worth reading here.
OK, no more comments from me on figure skating, particularly men's figure skating.
