    Thanks for this, shutterbug. It's always interesting to see how the hockey players are feeling about figure skating.

    Russ Courtnall - yes . Theo Fleury - no.

    Anabelle Langlois will be a professional skater. Shae-lynn and Tuffy will be returning.

    Can't wait.
    Ug. What a load of utter crap.

    Battle of the Blades, CBC’s smash reality TV hit that reached 1.7 million views last year, will return for a second season on Sept. 26. The show, which is moving from Maple Leaf Gardens to a studio by the Toronto waterfront, will be hosted by Ron MacLean and Kurt Browning, and starts off the season with a behind-the-scenes special that delves into the hockey players’ training and characters. Skaters Shae-Lynn Bourne and Jamie Salé will be returning, and former Montreal Canadien and Toronto Maple Leaf Russ Courtnall is the first ex-NHL-er to be trotted out as one of the willing subjects. Here, Browning talks about last season’s cast hook-ups (or not), Canadiana and changes to the upcoming season.

    I recognize some of those quotes from last year - particularly the part about "the wife". I wonder if the paper just took them from last year? I can't see Kurt saying that again now considering...

    No. But I mean the paper could have taken some of the quotations from past interviews = even though it was published this year. Or I guess he could have said it again - kind of how you retell stories - but I would think that would be one he wouldn't retell at this point.

    Unless it was a totally different wife who asked the skater if she was having an affair with her husband, a wife who really didn't have anything to worry about.

    But even if it was a different wife, I can't see Kurt saying that in May of this year considering, as you say, what has transpired and what is going to be quite the story when they start being public about it.

    I wonder who will be at Craig's charity golf tournament this year, next week in fact, considering that the huge donation from his participation is the big news for this year's event. Will Jamie? Will David? Will Craig's wife?
    Everybody thinks that the $100,000 for such a great cause such as spinal cord research is so fantastic, but my reaction is "at what cost?". I'm sure there are a few family members out there who wish they had never heard of Battle of the Blades.

    Kelly Chase posted a different date in his blog.


    The show begins on Sunday, Oct. 3. It features eight former hockey players, including myself, Theo Fleury and Russ Courtnall, brother of former Blue Geoff Courtnall. We’ll be paired with a figure skater as we attempt to perform live every Sunday.

    I believe the competition starts on the October date - there was mention in the article about a special show of "background" first.
    Can't skate but love to watch

    That's a little harsh - I don't see a link between an alleged infidelity and raising funds for a good cause at all. It's not as if only faithful people can do good things.

    There's no link between infidelity and raising funds for a good cause, just my observation that for a lot of people the cost to one family of that well intentioned decision to try to win a lot of money for a good cause, might not seem worth it in the long or even short-term run. I voted my brains out in BOTB last year for the 'cause'.

    The retrospective on the first night of this year's BOYB should be interesting.

    I must have missed where it was confirmed that there actually was an affair.

    It'll certainly be interesting dynamics when it airs................

    The last season, I observed they seemed to go to great pains to ensure 'no rumors or scandal.' Mention of various spouses was rampant IIRC? There was no indication of anything between the 2 and Jamie seems very well liked amongst all the praticipants?

    No you didn't miss where it was confirmed about an affair and of course you're right. It is all speculation. It never will be confirmed either, obviously, that it started during the fall of 2009.

    From one imperfect person (me) who in her younger days did have an affair, you go to great lengths to ignore the person if you can when you are in a group of people. This wasn't an option in the case of the skaters and their partners, but I always found it funny how the people who loved Shae Lynn and Claude's skating said there was zero connection between Simpson and Sale

    To be truthful, I'm one of the people who actually does not think they had an affair during botb. I don't think it started until afterwards, possibly shortly after the new year. And it doesn't matter what I think. Anyway I'm having dinner with my friend of the Simpson family next week.
