The crotch shot is gone. : "Misguided skating officials are cracking down on pelvis-pumping and lap-dancing—as though people actually want to watch Olympians skate." Wow. Apparently skating is much sexier than I thought, but now I’ll be missing out.

Well, at least we still have speed skating.

About four years ago, Oksana Baiul came out skating in pig tails while wearing a tiny catholic schoolgirl uniform. It was only a matter of time before they cracked the whip. I'm surprised it took this long.

Maybe those misguided skating officials can be used for goalies for the NHL All Star slap shot competition (no pads or masks allowed).

Publicity stunt anyone? Who was not going to watch figure skating that is considering watching it now?

Nawwww... I WAS considering watching the figure skating when I was getting a free peek. Now? Feh.

The local news showed footage of some of the banned moves. They were not offensive. How will they classify the basic one-armed lift in pairs where the only point of contact is the guy's hand on the girl's crotch? That one is far more suggestive than the footage I saw.
