Peggy Fleming worked with Thomas McGinnins back when Ice Capades was a big show. Hopefully she'll be one of the people inducting him into the Hall of Fame.

Is it too much to hope that this will be televised?

Nah, I just have low tolerance for syrupy gushing and flowery speeches... :cold:

Tom had a quadruple bypass a few years back and he's still out on the ice coaching at SCOB at least 3 days per week. Lovely man.

They do receive an introduction when they walk out on the floor/arena which gives their career highlights to tell why they are being inducted. it's done right before the ice cut in the middle of the event so it's quick.

It would be beyond awesome if the USFSA would ask Michelle to skate in the exhibition (hey, they had Evan there last year....yes, I know he was there b/c of the "Rise" filming). :)

The HOF inductions are as Debbie described. That "Rusty" guy who does little impromptu interviews with spectators did do an interview with Sarah Hughes the year she was inducted, but it was not during the ceremony but during a break in the sessions.

giselle, I doubt the ceremony will be televised. If you have Ice Network you will probably get to see it.

This January 2010 article mentions that Lori Nichol competed at the Novice level in the U.S. and was coached by Don Laws: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20100122&content_id=7956206&vkey=ice_news%20target=

As a U.S. novice competitor, Nichol trained under Chan's former coach, Don Laws. Prior to having children, she worked as a coach.

That must mean despite not being diabetic, you have to “bring something to combat sugar shock” quite often. You must also have to be careful about the events you attend, not to mention the speeches you listen to, the books you read, the company you keep, and the threads you enter. As long as the sugar is raw and the speeches balance out the sweet flowers with some hard truths and nuggets of wisdom, why not :D and bear it?

After all, tolerance is a virtue. According to none other than tolerable Scott Hamilton, “Always try to maintain complete tolerance and always make an effort to give people more than they expect.” Oh well, life is tough and nobody’s completely perfect (not even the Kween, who’s been plenty perfect quite often). :P
