    "Three Cheers For Dick: Why Dick Button Should Be President Of The ISU"

    I wrote a new blog entry outlining why I think they should talk Dick Button into being the new ISU president: http://www.facebook.com/SkateGuard

    Warning: sense of humor required!

    Run, Dick, run!

    That was brilliant. If nothing else I am sure you put a big smile on Uncle Dick's face.

    Dick loves FS and talking about FS far too much to be the President of the ISU.

    Hilarious. You deserve some sort of award for this.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Yeah, pretty sure a whole blog entry about Adelina Sotnikova's "Burlesque" FS is going to have to happen eventually. I haven't been that profoundly upset by a skating program since Viktor Petrenko skated to "I'm Too Sexy".

    I think the worst thing about the program was the all of the vocals and the way the music was edited. I like the version of "At Last" she skated to and I thought that part of her program was nice. The uptempo part at the end is fun but the editing of the music is very bad. I think she and her team should have found an uptempo burlesque-like song to skate to rather than try to edit down a song with vocals to non-vocal parts.

    Very funny blog post.

    But why did you link to your facebook where we then had to find the post, rather than just link to the blog?

    I emailed it to Uncle Dickie himself. I bet he gets a kick out of it.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    kwanatic - Agreed! That program's music was disastrously cut. She still could have gone in a vampy/burlesque mood with any number of other pieces and avoided that mess of screeching.

    Skittl1321 - I apologize if linking through Facebook wasn't easier for you, you can view blog entries directly at http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca.

    manleywoman - Can't wait to hear what Doug thinks about it. )

    Message from Dick Button himself: "Thank you for the compliments and your doubts are 100% on the mark." Hahaha.. Made my day! Wishful thinking

    Dick will be 84 in July. He probably would have been a good one when younger, but I wonder if he has the energy for such a large undertaking now. Also, He is spokesperson for the Brain Injury Foundation.


    OT does anyone know what his children Edward and Emily do?
