Hi everyone, I just joined the forum! I love message boards, and think this would be a wonderful place to get to know some new friends! I'm from Pennsylvania, USA. I'm 23, a writer, film score collector, and avid figure skating fan. Great to meet everyone!

A big welcome from California Angie! I think you'll fit in just fine here. I hope you enjoy your stay!

By the way, I'm an Alexei Yagudin fan myself!

ALEXEI IS MAGNIFICENT! I love his skating, I have tapes of him going back to 1998!

Aww I've never felt so much love in one place! Thanks for the kind welcome everyone!

Yes indeed, have you seen Plushenko's St. Petersburg 300 program? Sheer brilliance, I say! As are Yagudin's Gladiator and Winter. Don't care much for Man In The Iron Mask though, because he couldn't make up his mind which character he was portraying!

Strange how he always seemed to skate to works by Hans Zimmer or by Zimmerr's associates. Broken Arrow, Gladiator, Man In The Iron Mask... All in a row too.

Is he the guy who skated to 'Sex Bomb'?

Edited to say that I have answered my own question. If you want a really good giggle then follow the link to a video of him skating. Warning, it si slightly risque but presumably as it was in a skating competition we can allow it.

Link to video clip, you need your speakers on - just listen to the comments!

Hello Angie, we've met already here and here is my official welcome

The only person I was fascinated with for ages (if anyone remembers) was Jon Tickle from Big Brother UK. Plenty of websites about if you want to google him!

ROFLMAO. That was too funny. I'd love to see what kind of marks he got for that.

LOL He could never do that in competition! The music has vocals! Only in the pro competitions can you do that. Besides, spotlights in elegible competition? Have you seen The Cutting Edge one too many times? LOL.
