The Winter Olympics – Part 2  0

Wow, what an amazing performance by the female figure skaters in the short program! I’m usually not one to get too absorbed in figure skating, but the program that Irina Slutskaya put on was enchanting. For starters, her music kicked ass – a modern version of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. It was so jazzy and full of rhythm, unlike the typical flowery stuff to which others skate. Then, she wore pants rather than a skirt and put her full energy into true performance. A real, solid athlete. Oh, and she’s another foreign athlete that can give interviews in English.

Sasha Cohen’s performance was, of course, dazzlingly perfect for an Olympic performance. Fun to watch, artistic, and as soon as I saw it I knew she was the gold medalist. Wow – just, perfect is all I can really say.

It seems the feud between speed skaters Chad Hedrick and Shani Davis continues. Davis publicly stated (with Hedrick sitting next to him at this particular press conference) that (paraphrasing here) it would have been nice if Hedrick had congratulated him on his gold medal victory earlier in the Games. Hedrick, taken aback and visibly at a loss for words, replied with (paraphrasing here too) that it would have been nice if Davis had participated with his teammates in the relay (the pursuit, I believe it is called). Yikes. To Hedrick and Davis (two loyal blog readers, I am sure), I say this: you are acting like stereotypical women. Get over yourselves. Better yet, admit that you’re in love and stop fighting it. You can’t fight this feeling anymore…you’ve forgotten what you started fighting for…so bring the ship into the shore, and throw away the oars forever…
