Isn't it cute and obvious when a blogger racks up blogs by repeating and three-peating each and every blog. Sorry, an occasional mistake can repeat a blog but to do this over and over is rather obnoxious. Especially when the blogs are incoherent and say little.

Just worrry about your 4000 blogs of RUSSIAN GARBAGE, THEY are quite obnoxious, indeed! I believe over 2000 of them were about something counter to what I said about your overly obsessed RUSSIAN GARGAGE and your DELUSIONS of RUSSIAN GRANDUER! GET A Russian life!

Add to that, also when the blog are obnoxious and concentrate on venomous name-calling and vicious personal attacks.

Well, I sure think that Michelle deserved every medal she got. THAT'S WHY SHE WON THEM. I mean, it's sorta obvious.

Poor Michelle, I'm deeply regret that she is a two time olympics loser.

There is a very thin line between inspirational and delusional - but I'm afraid Michelle has crossed over.

It's a pity her chosen athletic endeavor, like gymnastics (and unlike Ms. Wie's sport - golf - for example) is one in which it is just not possible to remain competitive at the highest levels in one's 30s.

MIchelle needs to find other ways to remain inspirational, I think. I hope she does.

Michelle Kwan is a great skater and if she RETIRES I will miss her. But could we PLEASE look to her future and not to her past??

kwan has always choked when it came to trying to get olimpic gold. her best years have passed her and it is time to give younger more talented skaters a chance. I respect her though - she has always gave it her best, but it was never good enough for GOLD!

I tend to agree with you. She has had some great moments with individual routines though.

Michelle Kwan...ah yes, the legendary Michelle Kwan, the self proclaimed gift to figure skating. Oh wait, is this the same Michelle Kwan who LOST and is got CREAMED at two Olympics..penned her way into a third trashing another skater's dream..there are a lot of legends out there and being a legend is not necessarily a compliment. Tonya Harding...Michelle's idol and rold model is also a legend and her name is synomous with figure skating. Tonya did more for the sport than medicore Michelle...she brought it into the public eye. Kwan clubbed Emily...she just used a pen to do it. That's quintessential Kwan..and then she lapped up the praise for her graceful withdrawal from an event she had no right to be in...situational ethics at best...arrogant, narcissistic, and a real LOSER! That is the legend of Kwan.
