Without a doubt, the best figure skating blog I have ever seen…

Don’t even try to argue with me. Boot and Blade is definitely a figure skating blog. I can’t imagine a better place to go if I want to see the worst figure skating falls.

You may have guessed that I’m not the world’s biggest fan of figure skating. And I positively hate the Olympics. I’d be grateful if those of you agitating for a boycott of Beijing’s run of the superspectacle would turn your attention to boycotting Vancouver in 2010 as well.

But I know Julie from organising Northern Voice. She’s gifted and she’s always struck me as a very fine person. And if Julie getting accreditation to that obscenely wasteful monument to fat city jingoism makes her happy, I’ll write an insignificant post on my little blog.

That, and when Barefoot cracks the whip, I make the trip…

  1. I’d probably be more of a figure skating fan if there was more of that hot Harding/Kerrigan girl on girl action.

    I did just add some link love for the figure skating blog on the sidebar of my own blog though. Fight the power! Represent NV, yo!

    Extra gruel for you tonight, Lamb. Thanks for that.d

    Very kind of you to link to my blog, especially since figure skating doesn’t float your boat and you hate the Olympics! Thanks for the compliment… I think you’re a very fine person too.

    Hi Brian,
    You’re funny! I’m a *big* skating fan, so much so that I find reasons to blog about it:

    It’s OK. I like hockey too :)

    D’Arcy – careful, or I’ll have to hose you down.

    Julie – if you don’t get the accreditation, than my Olympic hatred will really take flight. Good luck.

    Dean – I love watching hockey, but certainly don’t pretend for a second it’s a superior pursuit to liking figure skating or anything else. We all have our own flavours of intellectual bubblegum.
