And DelPen, of course.

Let's see your routine.


So unless you have competed at the same level as an athlete you can't say they choked? :roll:


You indicated that his just judges were "all the other people who didn't fall twice in their routines." Then you said, "He's a choker."

I presume that means that you didn't fall twice in your Olympic routine.

I'm simply asking to see your routine.

Bush 43 choked.

I stand on this opinion as an accomplished pretzel consumer.

I will bet a whole lot of money that DelPen didn't fall at all in his olympic routine.

I just want to put my middle finger in the air and say a big ‘F-you’ to everyone who has ever said that to me because they’ve never stood in my shoes and they’ve never had to do what I’ve had to do. Nobody has to stand center ice in front of a million people and put an entire career on the line for eight minutes of their life when they’ve been doing it for 20-some years. And if you think that that’s not hard, then you’re a damn idiot.


So had he skated well and not fallen down I'm sure he would turn down the praise people gave him since they wouldn't know what skating is like.

I think everyone is just sick of the tactics used by journalists. It doesn't matter if it was Bode, someone else that's famous, or an average person. Everyone gets subjected to the same unethical treatment. It shouldn't matter if it gets ratings or discussion. At some point a line needs to be drawn or you'll have the news creating stories from nothing, although I wouldn't be surprised if that already happens.

I can think of a few people who put their career on the line at center ice for a hell of a lot longer than 8 minutes at a time. Those people also knew when to get up when they hit the boards. ;)

Yup. Good sports.

A brother and sister ice dancing team is kind of weird. A big part of ice dancing is the illusion of sexual attraction.
