    Favorite programs of your not so favorite skaters

    Once in a while a skater/pair comes up with a program that you like, and it's a surprise, because you never cared for that skater, and probably won't in the future. Still, you really liked that particular program or performance. Who are such skaters?

    For me,

    Meno & Sand- I'm your man (pro)

    Abitbol & Bernadis- The mask of Zorro (Ex)

    Bourne & Kratz- Riverdance (1998 Oly FD)

    (Stephanie) Stiegler & Zimmerman- Sorcerer's apprentice (LP at one of the GPs. I think)

    Petr Barna- Chaplin exhibition at 1992 Olympics

    Jill Trenary- These boots are made for walking

    Surya Bonaly- Four seasons LP at 1993 worlds

    Gregorz Filipowski- Warsaw Concerto LP at 1989 worlds

    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    That's weird, coz yesterday I was watching a DVD from the Golden Skate awards (08' I think) & saw Buttle skate to Personal Jesus & thought the same thing !.
    I never really got anything he did but really enjoyed that one.
    Also, I was never a fan of Denkova/Staviski but I loved their OD at the 2003 Worlds.
