Slippery Ice-

A picture named tinyWorld02.gif

You can tell the Olympics is over, because life in the skating world is not running smoothly. The slate of entries for World's still isn't posted on the World Championship site as of tonight. It appears they're having the same type of problems with their ISP I've been having. (more later)

The "Welcome Home" parade in Great Neck, NY for Sarah Hughes had to be postponed, due to rain. It's rescheduled for next weekend. (Weather permitting-- of course.)

And it appears Amy Fisher has bowed out of the Celebrity Boxing on Fox match against Tonya Harding. Paula Jones is going to stand in for Fisher next Wednesday night. Pity they just didn't cancel it-- or let Tonya fight Danny B'.

[RIP!] And we have a tie!  After SLC, What else is new?  The Co-Awards for the Best Olympic Parody Song of the Year are  "Russian in Nature" by Capcomop  and  "Blame Canada" by Trudi Marrapodi

Congradulations to the winners!  And thanks to the Usenet group (or RSSIC) and Ron Narciso the webmaster who inshrined these tunes for all time.  We hope we can work with the group and Ron again to bring a little humor to everyone.
