I know all my comics about the Olympics have been about sheer disinterest, but I caught some of the figure skating program yesterday. when I was a kid we would always watch the figure skating. I’m not really sure why, probably because my sisters watched it and also that most races aren’t very interesting to watch.

By the end of the night though I realized that watching figure skating is kind of not fun if you’re nervous they’re going to fall which is all the time. Though actually reacting in a huge and dramatic way to the skaters falling is kind of fun and hilarious.

Years upon years ago the Saturday Night Live skit with Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman and Jason Priestley said it best with most of the skit consisting of them watching and cringing as the Jason Priestley stuntman botched every single skating move you could possibly imagine.
