    Actually, I worked on this last night, and came up with some brilliant (IMO) verses that did just that . . . incorporated some of his history, catch-phrases and the like. I'm going to try to finish it this weekend and put it out there.

    He'll either love it or get a restraining order.

    I posted on my Facebook page that if someone were to make a Facebook page targeted at Dick Button doing an interview with me, what should it be called? And one person responded: "Manleywoman is First Rate, and We Take Our Hats off to Her! You should too, Dick Button!"

    I hope you'll all help me spread the word once I do post it.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    Okay, I've finished my poem tonight. I'm going to sleep on it to make sure it's just as it should be. I've sent it to a few trusted skating friends for review, and then I'm hoping to make a podcast version tomorrow of me reading it, plus publish the transcript. I'm heading to NYC in a few weeks, so I hope we can finally meet and do an interview. Fingers crossed!

    The reviews will say ...perfect turnout of the glossary."

    Hopefully not, "That last participle is just dangling there."

    Love your ode, Manleywoman. (Maybe you should also temporarily change your name to Buttonwoman. That should impress Dick.)

    Please ask him to write that book. Warn him that if he doesn't write it, FSU will!

    I got enough of Dick when he was a commentator. He was so annoying. I hope he doesn't show up at the 2014 Olympics and I certainly don't care to read his memoirs.

    To each their own.

    Do you possess his knowledge of; or history in, figure skating?

    As Dick would say, "Not the first time I haven't been invited to a party."

    Whenever you have a strong personality like Dick who upholds his ideals with conviction, you're never going to please everyone. And that's okay.

    That being said, bring on the MEMOIRS!
