    I get it Gev is dressed like the Fighting Irish mascot. I thought he was a Christmas elf!

    They must figure that people who would watch skating will donate.

    they figure people who follow skating are used to suffering and lost causes

    and they arent wrong

    Kadavy was good- really stood out. So did N/B. Boitano really owned it.

    Again, So You Think You Can Dance finalist. Why, who knows, as I said before, he's taking the place of Dan Hollander and/or Steven Cousins, who they actually let skate without schtick. I was just shocked when Gev actually got on skates & did his B-Boy moves on the ice in said skates.

    He was also in the land of the Fighten' Irish, obviously, hence the Leprechan.

    Yes, I googled him. It was more of a rhetorical question. I was amazed too by his skating skills, although the standing on his head thing was a tad repetitive by the fourth time I saw it. Not every skate fan watches SYTYCD. :slinkaway

    Ah! Gev is Akop's son. That's the FS connection. I remember Ari and Akop in shows back in the glory days of pro skating.

    He's Akop's son? I didn't know that! Ari & Akop were a lot of fun. That also must be why the guy can skate!
