Ice Skating Drama (Of Course)

One sort of advantage to having got home so late last night from WonderCon was that I was still awake when the live press conference was convened for Michelle Kwan to talk about having to withdraw from the Olympic team because of the injury she sustained the previous day. Despite my concern about the ice skating judging system (which I'm cautiously optimistic about after having seen some of the pairs skating), I couldn't help being sympathetic for Kwan, who seems to have had a lot of hard luck when it comes to the Olympics, despite her sucess otherwise. I also have to give her a lot of credit for being respectful enough of the team and the avowed spirit of the Games to withdraw and allow someone with a better chance to compete. Class act, Michelle.
