I really wish they would have skating on TV more here. I know a lot of people (yes, mostly woman) who would watch skating if it was on TV. The Olympic coverage is ridiculous. Belinda Noonan and Sandy Roberts make me cringe, then last year we have Eddie McGuire and Mick Malloy calling Johnny a "poof". No wonder no one takes the sport seriously in Australia. And with so few people wanting to skate, the prices for training and session times are ridiculous (In Melbourne at least. In Perth it is much cheaper/more freestyle sessions).
Well it's the men in executive positions at tv networks, making the decisions on what gets shown and what doesn't.
And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.
