    So the figure skating championships are in San Jose right now and I went to the Men's short program performance. Some incredible skating out there. I was ridiculously impressed and adored the atmosphere of the whole evening. It is really nice to be around 'famous' people who don't act like they are better than everyone else. I think I got some fun photos and got to see some of the older skaters who were there as well.

    Anyone else interested in this?

    Sorry, I only pay attention to ice skating once every four years. :p

    I'm not really into figure skating but I do like watching the speed skating when the Winter Olympics roll around. I tend to lump figure skating/ice dancing in with the gymnastics events that involve twirling ribbons and playing around with rubber balls. Is it sport? That's debatable.

    I watched that Red Bull Crashed Ice thing last week. It was pretty cool.
