    Great article! I love the bit about him meeting Kwan and discussing Rihanna. LOL about "Lisa", that's hilarious. :lol:

    Notice that he had to tell us that he completed the rotation, even though he fell. He knows his COP! :rofl:

    I Love this! I feel like I could tell such a similar story about watching skating with my parents circa 1992-1994.

    Awesome. If Samuels doesn't already post here, he totally needs to. Staying up at all hours to catch European web broadcasts of competitions? One. Of. Us. One. Of Us!

    We are one in of the same. I'm a black heterosexual male that loves skating. Even though I was not as emotionally invested as he was...lol. Glad to see we're out there.

    That was fun to read :) I loved the randomness of 93 also, that he was so invested in Nancy Kerrigan of all people is so disturbing that it's cute. I had a similar family when it came to Michelle Kwan.. :mad:

    What a great article and I'll be for sure checking out his blog during the Olympics.

    And my family/friends just roll their eyes at me when I get started prattling on and on about the upcoming Olympics!

    If he's not an FSUer, we'll have to make him an honorary one. :)
