    That was brilliant. Thanks for posting. They said he was second going in, did he medal?

    ETA: NM, finally found the answer. He got the silver. Good for him.

    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Similar thing happened to Cynthia Phaneuf (Vancouver, IIRC?). She just fell randomly on her butt in the middle of the program and was like "WTH?" I also loved Amodio's recovery at the 2013 Worlds SP. He fell and winded himself on a spin (not funny) and then just salsa'd the last remaining seconds of his music.

    I don't know why I found this one so funny, but Gary Beacom's Johnny Cash program cracks me up every time. He does maybe three elements in the program, but he holds them for so long, it's funny. The quality is a little grainy, but it's the best version I could find on Youtube.

    I love the Doug Mattis one! Now I would like to see someone do a Canadian version with the following:
    Don Jackson/Toller/Orser/Kurt/Elvis/Buttle/Sandhu/Chan/Beacom

    With such different styles, it would be fun! The question is, who would be able to do it? Ideas?

    I think Kurt definitely has the comedic talent to pull those off. I'd bet he could even do a good parody of himself. :-)

    Not sure if this goes into the funny category, it is more disturbing than anything!

    Oh, I forgot about when both Sale and Pelletier and Bourne and Kraatz fell on top of each other at the end of their 2002 Olympic LPs.

    Well, at least it was an exhibition, and not a competitive program. (Can somebody PLEASE ask Moskvina what the heck she was thinking when she gave that music to B&P?)

    I have actually seen that music performed live by singers. It was written by Rossini for two opera singers who hated each other and is called the Cats Duet.

    Here is a performance of it to put it in context. Probably doesn't make the best skating music but it is quite clever.

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

    I am familiar with the context of the piece. But this is terrible skating music, especially for a pair like B&P. Hence my comment about Moskvina's thought process.

    I remember at 2005 Worlds SP Roxana Luca's coach was so happy about her skate that he jumped all over the place - as high as the boards, literally! People started laughing and when after the replays cameraman finally showed him sitting in the K&C, audience started cheering loudly. And he gave a small smile and a little embarrased wave of his hand - and that got all the audience in stitches
