Something, something, ambiguous NFL catch rule deciding the biggest athletic event on the planet. Girls dancing on ice?  OK.

There isn't anyone at the highest levels of figure skating, men's or women's, that is truly exciting to watch.

No one like Boitano, Stojko, Hanyu, Kim Yuna, or even a Slutskaya or Petrenko.

I'm hoping against hope that these events have amazing performances and not just the bland shiat on display at last month's trials.

Nope. The biggest annual sporting event on the planet is the UEFA Champions League Final by a considerable distance.

When you add in those competitions that are every 4 years the Superbowl doesn't even make it into the top three.

Are you shiatting me?
They farked Ashley Wagner this year. No her routine wasn't 1st place quality a couple weeks ago, but the girl that got 3rd place was WAY worse than Wagner's routine.
But Ashley's an old maid now and they want the young blood.

Have you not seen Nathan Chen? Or the Shibutani siblings?

I would like to point out that this article was seriously lacking in over-sexed underage girls

Yes. Their routines are boring and technically unchallenging. And tbh, pairs skating isn't my thing.

I remember fondly the days of Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan.  Not only was there drama but they were both very good skaters.  The grace of Nancy, the athleticism of Tonya, and the thrill that someone could get stabbed on the ice.

Times like this, I wish we had a "No Sh*t, Sherlock" tag.

The discussion is athletic events, not grassdiving.
