    Also in 1968 - this is my coach, also from Rockford. Sure took a long time for it to be accepted, didn't it?

    What a limited perspective. Torvill and Dean did more than anyone else IMHO to bring attention to ice dancing as an Olympic sport.

    Not in the U.S. It's always been a niche sport. As much as some people dislike D/W, their dancing is more exciting for the average spectator than the dancing of other couples. I do think that for their impact to be maximized, they should go to worlds and eek out everything they can from advertising opportunities that they must be drowning in at the moment.
