The Best of Dick and Sandra
» On falling in ice dance, as demonstrated by Usova/Zhulin in the Free Dance at 1992 Worlds.

Dick: Oh no!
Sandra: This never happens in ice dancing!
Dick: How costly? Is this a loss of a medal we’re talking about?
Sandra: Well, as long as the fall doesn’t affect the rest of the performance, we’re probably talking about a tenth of a point.
Dick: A tenth of a point for a fall in ice dancing, where no one ever falls?


Dick: And the marks for technical merit - you’re right, Sandra. The judges didn’t penalize them severely for that fall.
Sandra: The judges are influenced by the way they skate the entire year, not just this performance.
Dick: You mean they pre-judge the ice dancing before they actually perform, so even if you fall, it doesn’t matter?

I am attempting to do a series of my favorite (hilarious, awkwardly staged, actually interesting, etc.) commentary moments featuring Dick and/or Sandra. The views of Dick and Sandra do not necessarily reflect my own opinions. Even my fave skaters are not safe from them.



JGP Programs I’m obsessed with: Aldridge & Eaton-JGP Austria Free Dance

This program turned out so much better than I thought it would.

i was just overcome with a need to make a Mack and Mabel or Barnum post. i should really post all the other shit i’ve made since last week first, though. What to do, what to do.

(Answer is of course watch Mack and Mabel over and over and over and then cap it off with Barnum and then the Paso and then the Rumba because I’m time-appropriate like that, and then end the day realize I did nothing.)
