Get ‘Yer Tickets: Stars on Ice

I’m no stranger to Stars on Ice. I went years ago (probably 16 years ago) at the Cow Palace, and again in Wisconsin. The latter I managed to snag free tickets, thanks to my friend who worked for the corporate sponsor at the time. She even gave me a black commemorative fleece covered with the logo in the back. I can’t take the logo off, because that IS the back. So I only wear it camping. So no one throws tomatoes at me. It's warm, but a little embarassing, if you know what I mean. Not that I'm known for my fashion sense, but...

That said, if you love ice skating and you love campy shows, this one is for you. It’s a production, and you can’t expect Olympic level skating, even though there are Olympicans in the show. Hey – they don’t want to injure themselves.

So who is in it? Sasha Cohen, Michael Weiss, Todd Eldredge, Evan Lysacek, John Zimmerman and a bunch of skaters I haven’t heard of. I’m sure they’re terrific skaters, but I haven’t been following skating since the Olympics. And even then, I was in Mexico for most of it, and missed out on the fabulous competitions. Huge bummer for me, since I love watching skating.

So get your tickets! If Stars on Ice gives me free tickets, I'll happily review the show for the blog.
