Reep reconsiders...

After further consideration I wish shift my stance slightly about figure skating. I still do not think it belongs in the Olympics, but after seeing what I saw the other night, I no longer think it's ridiculous.

This is ridiculous-

Apparently they wear the costume on the left at the recent European championship. Notice it's slightly different a month later at the Olympics.

So, they wear this hideous get up one month and think to themselves, "we can make it better if we draw some different squigglies here and add a leaf there". Seriously? A month to think about it and they not only decide to stay with the Adam and Eve meets Pocahontas look, but they think it's improved with a few different strange designs?

They look like the a cheerleader crashed into the Statue of Liberty and one of Santa's elves and were then pre-marked for an autopsy.

Utterly ridiculous...

With the strategically-placed faux foliage, I thought those were some of your huntin' buddies ready to hit the tree stand! :)

Tony,

Still wondering why you are watching this garbage...

USA beat Canadia in other news!!!! YES!

I was watching this hoping they would switch over to the Hockey game and I must say, this costume didn't bother me much. But seeing the French dressed up as Texans was an offense against my culture.

I’m with Hough. Seeing the French gal, wearing cowboy boots with skates bolted to the soles, made me wonder about the whole costume idea, and who comes up with them. I liked the Russian skaters outfits. They have to find an advantage to get one up on the competition. Their outfits had ropes across them so they could hold on better. Tony, like to see you in one of these outfits.

So, let the record be clear-

Brian Hough and Woody Woodward like the Ice Dancing outfit shown on this blog.

um...ok....

Woody, you have disgraced yourself as an Okie, and that's pretty hard to do. Dude's wearing a loin cloth and skating. Huh?

Hockey (and curling) have been shown pretty much on CNBC, MSNBC, or USA.

I thought I was dead to Sin? So I must no longer present my body unto things of unrighteousness?
