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.
