It was the Figure Skater, in the corridor, with a lead pipe!: Ten years have passed since Tonya Harding's goons set out to "handicap" the competition, Nancy Kerrigan. Ten years, wow....that's a long time....[crickets chirping]....what? Skating's a sport! It is! Honest!

My favorite part of the story was when America's sweetheart Nancy Kerrigan blew her Disney endorsement by bitching about how corny it was during a DisneyWorld parade. That and, of course, the release of Tanya Harding's horrifying honeymoon video.

Tayna Harding is a beast in the boxing ring.

I had a crush on Nancy Kerrigan when I was a kid. I must have had a There's Something About Mary attraction to a big "mouthful of teeth."

Susan Orlean's profile of the Tonya Harding fan club in her book The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup is one of the best things I've ever read. I grew up near Tonya, and used to watch her rehearse at the local mall skating rink, and Orlean really nails the story of Harding and the area.

Tayna Harding is a beast in the boxing ring. Ditto that.

dusted: vagina dentata much? Here's some Tanya Harding videos (no, not that one) from her official site. Oh, the fanfic section has to be seen to be believed. If that didn't scare you, try the REJECTED fanfic... I dare you. ]]shudder[[.

I just had to google that, against my better judgment. The images are good for a laugh, although I'm glad my boss wasn't looking over my shoulder! You're an interesting person, forksy. The google results are for the most part NSFW.

Snow Crash on SpoFi? Who'd've thunk it?

Quelle surprise that figure skating is a never-ending soap opera. Real sports have uniforms and coaches, not costumes and choreographers.

Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? < /kerrigan>

Real sports have uniforms and coaches, not costumes and choreographers. With the way NFL end-zone celebrations are going...

I thought it was funny, kinda. This might be the worst (best?) left turn ever in a thread.

Dammit, I need to scroll down before commenting. I thought you were talking about the FIRST picture. My eyes!!!

Some notes: 1) I still have a crush on Tonya Harding. I've tried therapy, I've tried slamming my winkie in a car door. Still think she's hot. 2) Never link to a rotten.com page while eating. 3) Ice skating is to sports as fingerbanging is to sex. Kinda close, but no cigar. 4) I can't stop reading the official Tonya Harding Fantasy site.

wfrazer, we just watched the South Park fingerbanging episode the other day--what a classic! I love the way that Kenny explains all the raunchy references but we can never really hear him though the other boys can.

I still think Kerrigan is a babe, though I'm sure she's annoying as hell. You know, all the complaining. I can hear her now.

Tonya Harding does it for me. She's probably do it TO me given the chance. Anybody know where to find THAT video?

i totally don't know guys at all if you are all ga-ga over Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan.

posted by jerseygirl at 11:42 AM on January 07

some here want to ga-ga all over Tonya and Nancy.

i totally don't know guys at all if you are all ga-ga over Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan no kidding....I had no idea that either of these two were remotely appealing to anyone

some here want to ga-ga all over Tonya and Nancy. ech.

posted by jerseygirl at 02:11 PM on January 07

I believe you'll find that in the aforementioned Tonya Harding Fantasy web site. JG, I have this weird attraction to Tonya, I guess the same way I love fried bologna and pro wrasslin'. There's no accountin' for it, but I do loves them so. BTW ... I need a clearer definition of ga-gaing before I can admit to wanting to do it all over Tonya or not.

posted by wfrazerjr at 02:27 PM on January 07

Eeeww. I feel dirty. btw. for what its worth jgirl, I think both Tonya & Nancy are beastly. So thats at least 1 emphatic "Nay!" from the male SpoFier's.

posted by lilnemo at 03:22 PM on January 07

Holy crap! those 'letters' are nutty. Er, you know what I mean. I think what I meant before was 'some over there want to ga-ga all over Tonya and Nancy.' I'll Take Katarina Witt anyday of the week over either of these two.

posted by garfield at 03:25 PM on January 07

I'd take Marion Jones any day of the week over either of them. Just kidding, Starfucker, just kidding!!! Down, boy!

posted by dusted at 03:49 PM on January 07

I got no clue on either of these. One looks like a secretary and the other one is a fedex delivery lady. Both with great legs, but still. Now, you wanna talk about Serena or any of the -nova girls, then I'm down.
