So, we bought tickets.
And we bought good ones, too. This could very well be, a once in a lifetime experience, and we wanted to have good seats. The only better ones were on the ice. We were in the 6th row from the bottom, in the middle of the rink.
I don't like to put too much emphasis on that it is such a great thing to go and see people that are famous. But, it did seem rather exciitng to see people that can skate so well, they won at the Olympics. They must be pretty good at what they do. In order to skate in a Stars on Ice program, skaters don't necessarily have to by Olympic winners but winners at US or World Championships. WE go to watch them, because we wanted to see good skating. And these people are among the best.
Lynette has taken some figure skating lessons, and being interested in it read a few books on the sport and various figure skaters last summer. She read about Ekaterina and Sergei Grinkov, which is one of the greatest pair skaters ever. So, it was fun to see her. (Sergei has died.)
I really got better pictures than I expected, with my little point and shoot camera. I used the zoom in and sports feature, which helped. But, most of the time I was just lucky. I tried to get some of the different forms or whatever they are called to prove we saw them, and so Lynette could remember what she saw. So, some of the photos are good and some are not.
