PostSubject: Good Figure Skating Blogs   Wed Feb 20, 2013 4:40 am

Hey, guys - how many of you have your own blogs or have read some really good, informative figure skating blogs? I only really know of two good ones - Tony Wheeler at flutzingaround.com and Aunt Joyce's Ice Cream Stand - and half of the latter is gymnastics as it is. Does anybody have another good ones that they can point me to? Oh, and I know of ontd-skating as well.

Adding to Aunt Joyce - he and Jenny Kirk are now doing an AMAZING podcast on YouTube called TheSkatingLesson. Check it out. They've interviewed Caitlin Yankowskas and one of the former heads of USFS most recently - and he was a judge for a long time as well, so it was interesting to listen to that. I think their aim is to get really high-up people in the figure skating world to talk to them, like former judges, perhaps someone like Sasha Cohen or Michelle Kwan in the future - I'm hoping that podcast gets huge. They do a lot of good research into their questions. They even managed to skillfully get some answers out of Caitlin Yankowskas about the split with Coughlin, which I thought would be impossible based on how secretive they had been.

I like Morozombie -- especially old posts which are both informative and entertaining!

Yeah. I like Morozombie's skating blog also. Same with Tony Wheeler.
Aunt Joyce... not so much anymore since the time Mao was reforming and I can barely read anything good written about her in that blog. Plus the comments are irritating. Dunno now, though.

TheNakedIce is also a good one.

i don't like aunt joyce but the podcast is ok. the podcast gets a bit unnecessary at times but it's still quite entertaining. i Laughing at jenny kirk when she said she respects ashley and that she loves her right after she tore her down and talked about how ugly she thinks ashley looks on the ice (she could've left out either of the two statements for the sake of making sense). and when aunt joyce said something about figure skating not being popular with african-americans... i don't think he thought about the possibility of offending people with that statement. however i do find the podcast insightful from time to time. for me, most blogs aren't worth reading but tony wheeler and morozombie have very good blogs.

Does Jenny Kirk still have her (typed, not video) blog? It was pretty popular for a while and had a lot of buzz. Haven't heard anything about it in a long time though.
