    All well deserved nominees! When there are two people in a category will only one actually be elected?

    And I always knew Michelle was in a class of her own.

    It's time to buy my tix! It will be great just to watch Michelle Kwan inducted in the HOF at the nationals, regardless of what happens in the competition. It will be a moment to cherish.

    ^^THIS! Class ... all the way.

    Michelle

    Rudy


    ETA: Among countless other contributions, Michelle and Rudy both made 1996 a most memorable year in national and international figure skating history. I practically know their iconic performances that year by heart.

    Who is that first name ("Kwan")? Never heard of her. Is this the skater who shared the ice with the streaker?

    Yea, I think so. Never heard from her before or since. I think she finished last in her sectional the next year and gave up competing.

    No, she's the lady who refused to allow said streaker to strike down her confidence or rattle her cool ... she's the Kween and the legend who transcends figure skating.

    Love her, hate her, pretend to forget her, or "never heard of her, " Michelle Kwan is, she just is ... cool, classy, legend, unforgettable, memorable, champion, diplomat, skater extraordinaire ... Her Hall of Fame induction will be exciting ... but just one in a culmination of special moments and memories.

    Great group of nominees. I would love to be there and see the Kween inducted. Anyone know when exactly the ceremony is held?

    Yeah right, ... Kwan never had to compete in sectionals from about 1994 to the end of her competitive career in 2006. But go ahead, have fun making fun and being sarcastic. It makes this all the more fun and exciting. Michelle Kwan is the skater who inspired the fs forum trend, she's the skater of Shock and Awe, of record-breaking history, of tradition passed down, and of the millennium of new technologies that changed fs forever -- (not always in a good way) ... but MK was always beyond good, and even beyond great, she was magical, she was the calm in the storm, she was 6.0, she was and is the face of figure skating in our lifetimes. Not only that, she quite often.

    Peggy Fleming worked with Thomas McGinnins back when Ice Capades was a big show. Hopefully she'll be one of the people inducting him into the Hall of Fame.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Is it too much to hope that this will be televised?
