We need Jeremy Roenick to get on the ice and hit somebody.

All these guys started caring about their NHL season after the last game.
Patty Kane was invisible.

Hats off to Temu Selanne, hall of Famer.

It's just a end of competition gala where all the winners and fan favorites perform again. They do it at most big figure skating competitions. They might show highlights but I'm sure they won't show the whole thing.

If that's the case then they will.

Ratings.

Something SSO doesn't realize, he may not like figure skating but according to the ratings, everyone else does.

They're going to show most of it, Lipinski and the other host are going to commentate on it.

Very true. There was a chapter in my Intro to Sport Management book junior year about TV ratings and there was a whole section in that chapter about the height of figure skating ratings. I wish I still had the book and so I could reference it, but it's right up there with soccer, baseball and American football. For both male and females in all different age groups.

I watched some of the figure skating when it meant something but the gala there are no medals on the line making it as meaningful as a 4th NFL preseason game. But figure skating only matters every 4 years so I guess let them have their Pro Bowl.

They won 1 medal out of 24 possible medals in just short track let's not even discuss long track and act like they world beaters? I don't think so, show some humility that they laid one of the biggest eggs in US Olympic history.
