I always dreamed of being a figure skater. Jumps and spins, sequins and lace... twirling around. All very good stuff.
Our Canadian figureskaters are very good you know. Currently we have the World Champion, Patrick Chan. He is from Toronto, which makes him extra special, since
it's the center of the universe (well, at least of Canada).
Anyhoo... this guy Chan, he was in the news this week. Something about him
not being appreciated enough in Canada.
So I thought I'd show some respect, and watch him in the grand prix today.
Cheer on a good Canadian lad. Sing the anthem and sit fists clenched, seeing
if he could pull out another winner winner chicken dinner. To appreciate and
celebrate the best in the world, who comes from our special country.
It was really nice to watch his routine. He fell a number of times, I thought
it was fantastic. Each time he fell, I cheered louder.
Sorry lad, I can see why you aren't appreciated in Canada. In fact, I don't
think any figure skaters are appreciated. I tried to get the final results from
the event, but Yahoo Sports doesn't list "Figure Skating" even when you
click on the "More Sports" button and get things like Cricket.
