Canadian Figure Skating

Apostle censorship

I love the web. I always liked the open side, uncensored machine. It often gives the right to beautiful soaring, wonderful exchanges and a place in the debate. I've always been an advocate of freedom of expression on the Internet. Until this weekend. From the very beginning of this blog, I promised myself never to censor comments. But when the gratuitous insults override constructive criticism and debate of ideas, then I say Enough! My last post put in relief the lack of impartiality, the subjective side of a sport where the human being should be noted athletes in competition. I could talk about gymnastics, dance or any other sport where judges must give their appreciation through notes but for performance reasons we know, I pointed the figure skating finger. Mistake. I am insulted, deal with all the names, free and unrestrained. I understand that the story of Joannie Rochette touched the fiber of most Quebecers. I myself have been touched by the courage and determination of the young skater. I know what it's like to lose a close family member, I know the pain that follows.

But shame on me, I dared to say (perhaps a bad time, I must admit) that a sport where an athlete is observed by men and women who give their impressions of a performance made up an interpretation. I understand that some jumps are more complex than others, they are rated differently according to their difficulty, and blah blah blah. I also know that the results of both programs were compiled to obtain a total score. But since the weekend, I League Canadian figure skating in full on the back. I have no problem discussing my point of view when it's done in a civilized manner.

I like this blog for almost eight years. I've never had to censor about anyone. It does not always make me happy, I often had to swallow a pill that went awry. It's over, I quit. I started to moderate, for the first time, the comments of this book. It pisses me off a bit much, because I always wanted to give a voice to everyone, without exception. I've always wanted to play devil's advocate. But the devil does not need to talk like a sailor (is what I'm going to have the association of Quebec carters on the back?).

Freedom, I scream your name? (Hahaha) I say Shit! When some people have learned to express themselves without sending feed those who do not share the same point of view, I open them may be new. In the meantime, I hope that some will learn to run their fingers on the keyboard seven times before speaking.

My daughter's first figure skating coach was

In a freak accident when she was five years old. Her foot was caught in a lawn mower, she lost half of her foot. While she was in the hospital, she was watching a figure skating program on t.v. Her Dr. walked in and said "why are you watching that, that's something you'll never do!" At five, she thought, "Oh, yeah? Watch me!"
She went on to be a Canadian figure skating champion.

Canadian figure skater's mother dies suddenly

On the brink of having her Olympic dream come true, Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette received tragic news. Her mother, Therese, had suddenly passed away.
Therese Rochette was in Vancouver to watch her daughter in the women's figure skating competition, which begins Tuesday. News reports indicate that Joannie Rochette plans to skate.
Rochette took second at the 2009 World Championships, and is a threat to medal. She took fifth in Torino, and was looking forward to helping Canada return to the medal stand in figure skating.

Two minutes for blurbing

If you were to write a television pilot that combined equal parts Colombo, The Sopranos, Ed, the Ozzy Osbourne kids, The Iron Chef Canadian Thanksgiving Special, Arizona Figure Skating Weekly, Hockey Night in Stuckeyville, and the Franklin Expedition, you'd be wasting your time, because Ghostofmajestic has already done it. And made a fine job of it, too.
This is pretty great. And you gotta love a story set in an ice rink with rental skates.
P.S. re: your achilles, my coach always used to say, "Weak ankles are often not really weak ankles, but a subconscious neuromuscular response to over-pronation causing you to favour the outside of your feet
