Ice Dancing. Because I Can’t Help Myself.

Samuelson and Bates’ free dance was absolutely beautiful tonight. No gimmicky costumes or vaudevillian overacting; it was a classic, lyric performance of exceptional grace.

I can’t imagine that they will medal, but it was one of the prettiest performances of the Olympics.

That said, you would be hard pressed to convince me that figure skating of any kind, outside of the argument of tradition, can be considered a sport. If ice dancing is a sport, then why isn’t there Olympic ballet?

And don’t even get me started on that whole trampoline fiasco from the Summer Olympics…

NBC put the USA / Canada hockey game on MSNBC so as to not interrupt ICE DANCING!

MSNBC - the home of Rachel Maddow, a woman who looks like a man, and Keith Olbermann ... that’s where they put hockey?

The bastards.

To be fair, it was the first time in years that I’ve found something worth watching on MSNBC.

I’m trying to think of the last time prior to the Olympics that I found anything worth watching on any NBC network…

Nope, can’t remember anything.

Most people look at me funny when I say that, if it can’t be measured with a stopwatch, a tape measure, or a set of scales, it shouldn’t be an Olympic sport. Definitely no horses or music, and I’m not too certain about events where equipment can make a difference, like bobsled and such.

You’d look at me funny for different reasons, wouldn’t you?

Yeah, you might go a little more extreme on this issue than me, but I think I understand where you’re coming from in a traditionalist sense.

Along the same lines, you might enjoy this article.
