We were asked to use an image that would go with an Olympic event theme. Well, the first thing I thought of was ice skating. Why you may ask. Well, it's not because I do it! LOL It is because the most notorious ice skater in the Olympics is from around our area. Yeppers, Tonya Harding. The knee capper conspirator herself! Way to bring global shame to a city. From knee capping, sex tape selling, hub cap flying, female wrestling to commentary on the series World's Dumbest, she's our gem!
So, I have to share....I know it is not so nice, but there are quite a few things that I cannot get over in this interview. 1.) Did the President really say that?! 2.) The look on the interviewer's face 3.) When the interviewer tells her she is a piece of work 4.) What is up with her bangs?!
You might be thinking that I am being a bit harsh on our friend, Tonya. Well, during the whole scandal there were a lot of legal requests for her and her husband's telecommunications records. Thus, she would be in our office often. We had the same team dealing with her. Guess who got to be on the team? No bueno!
I can also say that she could really skate. Amazingly so. It is a shame that she was not confident enough in her abilities. She was the first US skater to complete a Triple Axel in competition. Shown here at 58 seconds. Did you know that it is named axel after the Norwegian skater who invented it in 1882 and that it has mainly been performed only by men and only a handful of women have been able to do it? Sorry....back to the card.....
Well, I do know that Sophie is set to do a quadruple axel (is there such a thing?!) here in this card. I color inspired her from the pro! Hope you like her!!!!
Please be sure and stop by the other Calendar Girls blogs to see what Olympic wonders are to still be seen. Their blog links are on the right sidebar. Have a great day!
