    Re: The Most Painful Figure Skating Falls

    Last night they were showing all the falls in some sort of skating at the Torino Olympics and as they were showing the Canadians they went to spinning (it was mixed pairs) and I thought if he drops her now it will leave a mark and sure enough she went flying.

    They said it was really odd at Torino how many people fell during the dance or some crap (not a figure skating fan).

    Re: The Most Painful Figure Skating Falls

    So... They have to fall for figure skating to be painful?

    Oh... I thought you were talking about having to WATCH figure skating. It's either painful to watch, or maybe that's me trying to scratch out my own eyeballs so I don't have to....

    what he said!

    my wife and I got into a discussion about this the other night. My take: if it requires costumes and music...not a sport. She then says : you couldn't do that. My reply: fair enough, I also can't have babies should being pregnant be an Olympic sport? We didn't talk about skating much after this exchange.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Personally, I see the falls as my little revenge for them inflicting their "sport" on all the rest of us.
