I'm always surprised at the way skaters behave at skating events. I would think that as fellow athletes, they'd be all hush hush and respectful, but ...well I won't go into Paul "chatty kathy" Wylie and his big mouth at events.
Today I went to Mid-Atlantics, and one big reason was to see my new favorite: Rohene Ward. Apparently, almost everyone was there to see Rohene . As he took the ice, Robin Wagner and some Russian guy who looked familiar, but I couldn't quite place, squeezed in next to me to press up agaisnt the glass and watch. I'm not sure how either lasted the entire SP, as neither paused for breath during their non stop running commentary during the entire program. Blab blab blab blab blab. Unlike Paul, they at least seemed to be talking about the skater on the ice, but come'on.
I don't know...do actors talk non stop thru plays and movies? Do musicians gab with friends all thru concerts? What's up with elite level skaters? Is this common?
