    Liza Minnelli was a figure skater

    Seriously. On her interview last night on Larry King Live, Liza said she was a skater when she was young and thought that's what she wanted to do. Then, when she was about 12 years old, she saw "Bye Bye Birdie" on stage and decided she wanted to be in show business instead. The rest is history.

    Larry did ask Liza if she was good as a skater and she said "yes". It was just a brief comment and there was no mention of competing, etc.

    I wonder if Liza ever competed?

    Seeing Bye Bye Birdie (around 1960 when it played on Broadway when she was 13 or 14), and making the switch from skating to singing / acting / dancing may have been a live saver.

    Minnelli may have been a contender for the 1961 U.S., otherwise.
