    Purple (how about someone else can take a crack at this one...?)

    meanwhile...

    Figure skater De-evolution - which Men's skater gets to be sent back to 1950s, viewed via black+white newsreel footage, in a "waiter's uniform" sans sequins ;), sporting perfect figures, footwork and spins, but limited jumps:

    Evan Lysacek
    Daisuke Takahashi
    Patrick Chan
    Stephane Lambiel
    Johnny Weir
    or
    Evgeni Pluschenko

    :cool:

    1) Pillars of the Earth, because my parents read it and liked it (I think).
    2) Lysacek or Lambiel. Ever literal-minded, I have a feeling that the less lucrative nature of skating back then would've kept Weir in the equestrian realm (that's no criticism of him, of course), that a devastated USSR would be unable to nurture Plushenko's awesome talent, that the Japanese federation lacked sufficient clout to promote Takakashi, and that racial prejudice would've been among the factors keeping Chan from getting his due.

    #382 deserves a repeat.
