    Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya passed away

    I know :( It's eerie because I had just started watching Glee (and fell in love with it) when I heard about what happened to Naya Rivera and it broke my heart. When the song was playing, it reminded me so much of Katia and I thought it would make a nice tribute to her.

    USA Today: NBC commentators Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir participate in vulgar video spoof of U.S. Olympian

    I know this is a bit off topic, but as a young LGBTQ+ woman, I want to add my two cents to the conversation. The LGBTQ+ rights movement began mostly with Black trans women at the Stonewall riots. The Pride parades we enjoy today are a result of their bravery. They led the fight on the political...

    USA Today: NBC commentators Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir participate in vulgar video spoof of U.S. Olympian

    I agree - but then she wouldn’t be Christine Brennan, would she? 😜

    USA Today: NBC commentators Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir participate in vulgar video spoof of U.S. Olympian

    As I said before, I’m not a huge fan of Brennan. I appreciate her articles that expose real issues in sports, but I could gladly do without the petty things in between. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing that USA Today wants Brennan to consistently provide sports articles if she expects to get...

    I agree! For example, Papadakis/Cizeron’s Olympic short dance was a sexy Latin program to “Shape of You” and “Thinking Out Loud”. Even though they aren’t a couple, they sold the heck out of it. I just wish there wasn’t so much pressure on ice dancers to have at least one sexy program per season...

    Great question, @starrynight! I think Davis/White’s program was definitely a step away from the classic “male/female in love” program. To me, they always seemed like a team of best friends rather than lovers, and I really appreciated their style. To me, Papadakis/Cizeron’s free dance last season...

    USA Today: NBC commentators Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir participate in vulgar video spoof of U.S. Olympian

    As I stated earlier, I am very grateful to Christine Brennan for her articles on the abuse and subsequent coverups in the sport. She’s helped bring awareness to these problems where most people would try to sweep it under the rug, and I think she genuinely cares about protecting survivors and...

    USA Today: NBC commentators Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir participate in vulgar video spoof of U.S. Olympian

    I think there’s two main issues that need to be discussed here: 1. I personally think Tara and Johnny’s skit was stupid and unnecessary. They’re not just two casual fans cracking jokes; they’re professional commentators who have a responsibility to be respectful and reasonably unbiased in their...
