    I can't help it. . . "Tribute to American Brand Names," sponsored by Wal-Mart & Procter & Gamble and taking place at the Izod Center. Let's just hope that there's plenty of additional product placement throughout the show.

    (Oh, and really? Dick Button is going to perform? erm. . . yes, please, on the commentary but I do not advise that Mr Button skate!)
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    A bit premature to be calling Wagner and Aaron "legends," no?

    Maybe their performances are tributes to the legends? Not that they are legends?

    Their site made me laugh- the photo advertisement is Sasha, Evan, and Ashley. Sasha and Evan aren't even in the list of skaters on that site.

    December 11? That will be tough on any of the skaters who (hopefully) will be coming back from participating in the Grand Prix Final.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I think that's what the person who wrote the release meant but that's not what it says. The "they" gramatically refers to the "legends" = writing FAIL.

    No sponsors = no televised show & no money for the skaters.

    Oh. My. Gosh. I'm going to see Uncle Dick on the ice?!
    This is right next door to me. It will be my Christmas present. To myself if necessary.

    I found out about this show a few days ago when we received our latest issue of IFS Magazine (with Brian Orser on the cover). The Disson shows for this season are listed on the back cover. We were @ Mike Weiss' show this past Sunday, and I saw Steve Disson. I went over to him to ask him some questions about the show - criteria for the legends being in the show - the non-Olympic eligibles were Olympic medalists, the current US skaters in the show are Olympic eligible hopefuls.

    I doubt that Uncle Dickie will skate, but I'm sure he'll he'll be honored, and can't wait to see him again (while he is still alive)!

    I'm just going to put this out there: I hope Ashley has a decent exhibition number this year, and not one of those butt-shaking things in hot pants. It's time to grow up and perform like a national champion... ESPECIALLY in this company!

    If I weren't going to Nationals, I'd attend this!
    The generation who created skating as we know it, deserves to be honored while they are here to enjoy it!

    Seriously missing: Michelle Kwan, Dorothy Hamill, Peggy Fleming, Scott Hamilton
    Tai & Randy

    I hope they will be in attendance (not skating) and will be recognized at the show, since it's called 'Tribute to American legends'

    I would suspect that Uncle Dick will make an appearance but will not be skating. I haven't heard of him skating since the accident a number of years ago when he had a serious brain injury that left him hospitalized for a long period. But it sounds like a wonderful show in any event and I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    And while I agree all the promo spots in the shows can be a bit much, I'm glad there are still companies that support skating and I always try to give them positive feedback on social media for their efforts.

    I am envious of you east coast residents. You get so many skating performances- competitions and otherwise...........Sigh.

    My jaw dropped at the mention of Dick Button on ice. He was on ice at Battle of the Blades a few years ago and looked rather wobbley. Kurt very quietly moved to his side and steadied him.
