    Oh, man, I always knew Allison Scott was funny but this is a gem--when asked what rule she might change in skating:
    First, I’d eliminate the 'pancake spin'. While I love pancakes that are Weight Watchers 'Friendly' (and I do have a recipe for anyone who might like it), I have a SERIOUS dislike for any spin that has skaters effectively smelling their skates and chewing on their boots. As a parent, I KNOW what those skates smell like and I can tell you that hockey players have nothing on figure skaters when it comes to stinky skates! I don’t care how you try to hide it - wet cow is wet cow. Every time I see that spin, I want to pass along a container of Gold Bond Foot Powder – or an industrial can of BBQ sauce.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Thanks so much, skatesindreams! Was definitely a fascinating one to do - I have literally about a dozen more interviews & articles going up in the coming weeks before the Games. To say it's been busy blogging is an understatement!
