It was very eerie to watch...although the commercials were priceless. There is one husband and wife team that is doing a cigarette commercial on the ice. He is obviously winded by the altitude and the smokes. There were also some beer commercial that were pretty entertaining.
Skateweb's summary report on watching a tape of this CBS broadcast at the World Figure Skating Museum in Colorado Springs mentions these commercials and is worth reading: http://www.frogsonice.com/skateweb/a...ationals.shtml
