    Nice article. I'll look forward to reading his blogs during the Olympics.

    Does Surya look like a Lisa to you?

    Great article! I love the bit about him meeting Kwan and discussing Rihanna. LOL about "Lisa", that's hilarious.

    I look forward to his blog too. I like his sense of humour.

    None of this makes sense. In my 29 years, I’ve never skated competitively. I can count the number of times I’ve been on the ice on two hands. “Robbie,” my father would say, “you realize none of these skaters look like you?” We were black Jamaican Americans living in the Bronx, after all. We should be following bobsled teams.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    What a great piece. I love his throw jump in the kitchen. And I hope he gets to meet Kristi someday!

    Notice that he had to tell us that he completed the rotation, even though he fell. He knows his COP!

    I Love this! I feel like I could tell such a similar story about watching skating with my parents circa 1992-1994.
