They Make It Look Effortless

They make it look like a movie.

I wasn't even really paying attention. It was just on because, well, that's what was on TV. I just happened to glance up as they began skating. I know next to nothing about figure skating, and I feel pretty proud of myself if I can make it around an ice rink once without falling. So I can't begin to comment on any technical merit, but I am so glad I looked up just in time to watch Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto perform tonight at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Amazing. I'd never heard of them before an hour ago, but I don't think I'll forget them soon. Wow. Wow, wow, wow.
