I can't help it, I love watching skating.

It's rare that I go this long without blogging but I've been feeling a little sad lately. I wrote a blog post about it but decided to delete it. I decided that I want to try to keep negativity off my blog.

So Happy (almost) Valentines Day! Derek and I are planning on going out to dinner but nothing too crazy. I think people put too much focus and pressure on Valentines Day. Derek has been trying to guess his gift but I refuse to tell him what it is.

I have been obsessed with figure skating at the Olympics. I think Jason Brown will go on to great things. Once he can land a quad he will be unstoppable. Personally I think it's crazy that a quad is pretty much necessary to win gold. I feel like skaters focus too much on that one jump and some of the other elements get brushed to the side. That's my professional skating opinion.

I have been rooting for Jeremy Abbott. He just tends to fall apart at the Olympics. He fell on his short program and fell hard. He got up though and nailed the rest of his routine. I'm really pulling for him in the long program. Or is it called the free skate now? See, not so much the figure skating expert.

I'm really curious to see what happens with the woman's competition. I'm looking forward to seeing Gracie Gold skate.


  1. I love Jason Brown! I was disappointed last night to learn Plushenko was hurt and wouldn't be skating; I love watching him. So sad about that Abbott fall too!!!

    1. How could I forgot to mention Plushenko! I felt so bad for him. You could tell how badly he wanted to skate. He is such a great skater. I'm glad we got to see him in the team competition at least.

  2. I Love Jason Brown. He is adorable and i just want to carry him around in my pocket. I can't believe how many men fell and multiple times. I have never seen so many falls in an ice skating competition.
