John misha Petkevich... Olympian, Rhode scholar, entrepeneur, wealthy and smart

I would LOVE that choice.

(as an aside: I would love to interview him for my podcast too)

I loved his skating commentary in the 1980s with Judy Blumberg and Judy Schwomeyer. JMP would be a great podcast subject!

She would never accept, but my choice would be Janet Lynn.

Yes, yes, yes, please, please, please?

He was my very first skating crush.

An early fav of mine.

Ask him about doing commentary at 1984 Worlds in Ottawa when they lost power. Plus working there with the extraordinarily clueless John Tesh.

And about Dick Button & the Salchow trophy!!!

As far as promoting figure skating is concerned I think it should be someone who understands the importance of electronic media and how to use it. Live streaming and sites such as YouTube reach a worldwide audience. I think the Wave of the future is improving the quality of broadcasts and making more events available.

I agree with this. The NFL now broadcasts all their games in full HD over the internet from their website. They have several different packages tailored to what fans want. With a premium pass I can watch any game any time all season.

The ISU could certainly make money if they did the same. They've got to wake up and realize this is the 21st C, not 1950.

I don't think these two will retire until they become physically incapable of attending meetings and talking. Their jobs just come with two many perks and they don't have to do a whole lot I would think, relative to what an average person does in a 40 hours work week.

They will die first before retiring.

Just for the sake of it, "Kwan"?
