The Olympics

Huzzah! My favorite ice dancing team won the silver! Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto are the second pair of American skaters to ever win an ice dancing medal at the Olympics. Why do I like ice dancing, and that pair in particular? Because ice dancing is much more enmeshed in the music than normal skating. It is art. It is how I would like to skate, and I enjoy watching it. It is not a display of technical ability or knowledge as much as it is a showcase of human emotion. I love it!
