    It is being discussed in great detail in the Canadian Nationals forum in the Kiss and Cry.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    "It started when one skater called the other a triple sow-cow"
    This was a post under comments to the article. Hilarious!

    Mr. Slipchuk emphasized that the incident didn’t involve “any of our notable or high-profile team members. Our top skaters do not get involved in things like that.”

    Sure, only low level skaters behave badly! High level skaters of course are all saints!
    Funny take but also a bit

    Typical figure skaters .... all muscle and machismo. The sensitive ones all go into hockey.

    To paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield: "I went to a boxing match last night and a figure skating event broke out!"

    "Only the low ranked ones who we don't like, such as Mira Lueng and Emanuel Sandhu, were in the bar fight," said the president of Skate Canada. "They were just having good old medal-less skater fun, and we approve of that for skaters we don't care about."

    Tonya Harding and Tatiana Totmianina want to have words with Cynthia Phaneuf after the World Team Trophy outside O'Callaghan's Bar.

    Young men, copious amounts of beer, and pretty girls. Sounds like a recipe for a good ol' bar fight to me! I don't care what country they're from! (yes, I know it wasn't in a bar...)

    Check the Canadian Nationals forum -- there's a whole discussion about the incident in there.

    Except all the current skaters I know who were involved are already on the National Team.
