    Olympics Short Program Ice Dancing...

    GLOSSING OVER THE FACT I'M WATCHING ICE DANCING, just how feminine IS the "male" counterpart doing the play-by-play on NBCSP?

    And the only reason I'm watching ice dancing is because there isn't ribbon dancing at the winter olympics.

    Not hatin' and being in WA I was one of the few that voted FOR gay marriage in eastern WA... but my GOD the "guy" has a tiara and necklace on.

    Whether or not one likes ice dancing has nothing to do with homophobia...it just sucks. Let me know if the US gets a medal out of it. Otherwise don't care.

    I watched some if it, lasted about 10 seconds. However, I don't like figure skating in general. I equate figure skating in the Winter Olympics to Diving in the Summer Olympics. I don't get any joy or entertainment and they air too much of it.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    At least with diving you can look for the splash. Plus, general rule, if they're Chinese they are real good.

    I could honestly watch 2 different performances of Ice Dancing, and unless someone falls on their *** I have no idea who did better without the commentators telling me.

    Chuckle chuckle... If one of the announcers was announcing in a bozo the clown suit I would post as well. If there was a one-legged ski jumper I would past as well. If there was a 300 pound figure skater I would post as well. Unfortunately I have yet to see those things.

    For diving - potential for wardrobe malfunctions which is a plus.

    Isn't there some paint drying somewhere?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Olympics Short Program Ice Dancing...

    Isn't starting a sentence, "I'm not a homophobe, but..." One of those things that shouldn't need to be said if you are, in fact, not that thing?

    Its like saying, "no offense" and then thinking anything you say afterwards is acceptable.

    You don't have to be gay to watch ice skating. Have you seen the bodies on those girls?! Hot damn, ice skating/dancing does not have a shortage on attractive looking women.

    Uhhh....internet? You certainly don't have to be gay to be into ice dancing. You just have to be into ice dancing, which most people aren't. Hence the reason you only hear about it once every 4 years, even though the best ice dancers in the world are from the US (learned something new today). If you want hot girls on a screen, and you have the internet, the world is your oyster.
