For the duration of the women’s figure skating competition, I will be cheering for Joannie Rochette of Canada. Will she win? Highly doubtful. After the short program she’s currently in ninth place. All three Americans placed well above her. In fact, Sasha Cohen is a whole 10.88 points better.
So, why, you may ask, would I be cheering for a woman who will most likely lose and is not even from my home country?
Rochette's choreographer, David Wilson, got her to use an orchestral version of "Like a Prayer" for her short program. This makes me happy and wins my cheering support. To heck with talent. Music matters to me. It was pretty darn fantastic.
So, I’d like to thank David and Joannie for bringing Madonna to the Olympics. May they be able to have the longevity of Ms. Ciccone herself.
