I wouldn’t say I follow it closely enough to have a favorite, but I love watching whenever I catch a competition on TV.  I can barely stay on my feet when I am on skates…it’s so impressive to watch what these atheletes can do!

I don’t follow figure skating by any means, but if I’m channel surfing and catch it I’ll usually end up watching for while.  I’m watching on NBC right now while I do some homework for my online class (and procrastinate on weddingbee of course)   😉

I used to love figure skating when I was a kid.

Shout out to Kristi Yamaguchi and Scott Hamilton!

I love watching it and I used to take classes, but I was never quite able to psych myself up for the big jumps.

When I was a kid, I would love watching figure skating. I always wanted to be one. I loved watching Kristi Yamaguchi and Michelle Kwan. 

Oh and gymnastics… I loved watching that too.  I remember doing cartwheels, round offs and flips during recess during elementary school. 

I don’t follow it. I don’t know when it on but when I’m flipping through channels, if I see gymnastics or figure skating, I will definitely be watching.

I love Scott Hamilton. And that guy from Canada, what’s his name?  A friend of Scott’s. Amazing footwork. I like Johnny Weir. OK, so I prefer watching the guys (have you seen their butts???!!!) I’ll be watching tonight though.

Haha, yep I’m definitely watching it right now. I don’t “follow” it, but whenever I see it’s on I usually tune in.

I used to watch it ALL THE TIME when I was a little girl. Then I tried skating, and realized I suckeddddd at it. 🙂

I haven’t watched figure skating in years (we don’t have a tv – well, we have the screen, just not the channels).  I figured skated as a kid (10-14) and loved watching it on tv because I knew what they were doing and could do most of what they were doing (singles only, not double, triple jumps!).  I started skating again in college and took lessons for a few years.  I stopped because I’m afraid of falling now…but I’m going to start skating again – it’s a good work out!
