In fact, that's why I've been a little ??? about this.



And I was really ??? about 1996 to 1999 Judy/ESPN/Worlds because ABC did Worlds in that time frame, and it was Dick Button and whomever even for dance.

Did ESPN do a rebroadcast of Worlds with their own commentators?


Here's 99 Worlds on ESPN, Michelle Kwan's exhibition and Chris Bowman and Judy Blumberg are doing the commentary.

For whatever reason, in the mid to late 90s, ABC would broadcast with Dick/Peggy/Terry and then rebroadcast on ESPN with different graphics and commentators, like Blumberg, Bowman, Carruthers, and Bob Varsha.

:swoon: My favourite Kwan program, that music just went right through me (in a good way).

Judy is a whole lot better now than she was in the late-1990s when she & Chris Bowman did commentary on ESPN. Judy is now an expert on the 'new' COP system and, in fact, is a Tech Specialist/Caller at ISU dance events. I've learned more about the fine details of ice dancing from Judy than anyone else...all delivered in a non-arrogant tone (Did you hear that, Sandra Bezik?).

Peter - Judy - and, yes, Michael Weiss, all get my vote. I should have mentioned Michael earlier. He has really evolved into a fine commentator.

My God, I miss Michelle! She puts you into a trance. Such intensity and focus! Nobody skates like Michelle. :swoon::swoon::swoon:

I love that exhibition! It is captivating right up until the time the commentators started yammering away. After watching commentary free skating on the GP series, it's hard to go back...
