Mary Worth 341

Ol' Whatsizname has gotta be ready to hit the ceiling by now. Wait... Jeff? That's right, his name is Jeff.

I'm hoping this is not going to be a story about performance enhancing drugs (I just don't want to see skaters on steroids!). I think it will be about how ice skating has become way too big of an obsession in our country, judging by the 80,000 fans sitting in the stadium.

My parents were figure skaters; I never heard "game" used in reference to the sport. And "before the next event"? Usually would say before, regionals, nationals, worlds, interplanetaries, whatever. On the other hand, I also never saw anyone compelled to get up and touch the screen when referring to something on TV. Nice touch that the the TV is only in color in closeup, too.

Awesome, Baha. You'll be able to help us sort through Karen Moy's vague generalities over the course of this story!

Apparently it would be too much to ask of Moy to do a little research before delving into the game of skating. I guess it's kind of like the game of gymnastics.

I'm thinking eating disorder (very common in figure skating and gymnastics)rather than steroids. Or that Frank pushed Skating Phenom to be a figure skater, when she really wants to play hockey.

I just can't wait to see Dr. Jeff get in a tizzy of jealousy again.

"bring her competitive game up" Is there anyone with at least a sixth grade education who cannot come up with a less awkward phrase? I'm still hoping for the excuse of a drunken stupor. What do you think the chances are of Moy bringing "her writing up."

Dear God! I've been away for several weeks and I come back to only 2 days of non-identity theft content?!

I enjoy how Forgotten Friend the Sportscaster has done a poor, rushed job with his Just For Men haircolor, leaving the sides white and the rest blonde.

There's something odd, about this new guy. He looks like a cult leader, or something.

No, no. That's naturally yellow hair with graying temples. I know this because it is so similar to Toby's naturally yellow hair.

Actually, he kinda looks like Bobby Hill all grown up.

Maybe it's from Dr. Jeff's collection?

Are those quotes of sarcasm around Coach Forehead's dialog?
