    ^ Not sure how to take your comment (I do like Mike), but I'll add that Todd E. & family are supposed to be on NBC 'S Today Show tomorrow morning to do a promotional thing for the Family Skating Tribute Show. I don't know if it will be a live performance from Rock Center, or if it was taped in Phoenix, AZ.

    Thanks, paskatefan. I received that notice regarding the Family Skating Tribute Show in a newsletter from Michael. I've been receiving his newsletters around 4 years now. I happen to like Mike, also, and he's always responded to any questions I have regarding his shows.

    I'm afraid I missed Todd and family on the Today Show this morning. I'm looking forward to seeing them during the Family Skating Tribute Show. Thanks for sharing that info. :)

    Thanks for the reminder, I haven't watched as much show skating as I did in the past, but I always enjoyed this show. :)

    Random thoughts on Todd & family's appearance:

    CUTE kids!

    Mention of Paul Wylie, hurray! :cheer2:

    :rofl: at "Musselman's Applesauce Tribute." It sounds like a show in honor of applesauce.

    Sabrina moves really nicely on the ice. *Googles hastily* Oh, she's a former skater! No wonder!

    Nice little clip, on the whole.

    Shae-Lynn Bourne and Todd Eldredge are the new skating parents are debuting in this show.

    Jewel is a new mom, too, Kristi Y. informs us.

    Yup! :) Josef Sabovchik and penguins... who would've thunk? ;)

    Michael Weiss daughter does not sing very well. How old was he when he had here? He looks so young, I looked it I guess he is 35, but the daughter looks like she is about 15.

    I'm always glad to see Paul Wylie skate! Weird seeing him perform a light-hearted Kurt Browning-style program, though. :lol:

    ETA: Wheeee, FAST scratch spin to end. Miss those!

    It is striking to me how large the sponsors ads are for this event, that is why I guess they have this on instead of showing us REAL skating like the pairs and dancing from the Grand Prix. money talks I guess.

    Plus it gives these skaters a chance to earn extra income. The skating on this show is pretty bad. Jewel is good singing but otherwise the rest of the singing is crap.

    Plus who wants to see nancy kerrigan? I could see wanting to see Michelle Kwan with her children (which she does not have yet, but maybe soon!) but Nancy? Also I am not sure why Michael Weiss is so involved in all these shows. Anyone know why? Only a major FS fan would know who he is, he does not have the wide appeal of say a Scott Hamilton or even Evan. I doubt anyone would know who he is and he always is showing up at these shows.

    I thought Kerrigan's daughter was adorable and if I have to sit through the show's schtick "only parents are decent human beings" to see Shae-Lynn skate, I will :).

    Liza Kulik really looks like her father and Katia is even more beautiful. The young Russian girls should study her gliding across the ice.

    It will be interesting to see what these shows do with Johny Weir, who I suppose might have kids some day with his partner. They probably will not want to include him. I would like to see him more than some of the people they have on! I think fans would prefer seeing more current skaters than ones from 20 years ago. And even top skaters, like ones who won Gold medals and medals at more recent world championships, like Kwan, Evan, Sasha Cohen, Sarah Hughes, Tara Lipinski. Younger skaters will probably skate better too. Who cares if they have kids, they should include others too.

    I could watch Kulik jump all day (beautiful 3Lz!) as well as Gordeeva stroke/glide effortlessly (impressed she's retained 2A at 40+!).

    I certainly hope that if Johnny and his husband choose to have children, their family would be invited to at least participate in these shows.

    I'd love to see more professional skating, especially from more "current pros" but I'm a sucker for the family show.

    That she is! So is Ilia, he still has amazing command over the ice and jumping ability. I'd love to see them revisit their Di Bolero duet, or create another duet together for SOI or any other skating show. :)

    Agree. Ilia is wonderful and has maintained technical ability while also exploring his artistic side.

    Shae-Lynn looked sensational! I missed Paul Wylie's skate, but I thought Josef S. looked quite good considering he won the Olympic bronze medal almost 30 years ago!

    I don't think they would include Johnny. Johnny was not invited on one of those champions tours, and I believe it was noted in the press that the sponsors said something about it being a "family friendly" show. He wasn't even out then!

    Unfortunately, until there is greater acceptance in middle america about same sex families, I don't think a show with"family friendly" sponsors like these skating shows have would take the risks to show a same sex male family, given that some of these sponsors did not want to even include JW on the tour. At least not now. Might take a few more years. Hopefully though Johnny and other same sex athletes would be able to participate in time.

    Johnny with kids - and I could only imagine what kind of costume he would put his kid in- would be priceless to see!

    Todd Eldredge's wife, Sabrina Corbaci (who skated just now), according to his wiki, was a "two-time (1991, 1992) U.S. novice pairs medalist with Eddy Zeidler."

    ETA: What would have happened if Shae-Lynn's baby had started bawling in his "spider" basket??

    I'm so glad Kristi Yamaguchi reminds us who the sponsor of the show is, otherwise I'd surely forget.

    "We at Musselman's Family Skating Tribute, brought to you by Musselman's, thank Musselman's for Musselman's sponsorship, and hope you eat Musselman's apple sauce and drink Musselman's apple juice, because Musselman's has good food, and also a really great Musselman's Facebook page which features news about Musselman's products."
