Randomly I catch Battle of the Blades on TV. It’s CBC’s take on Dancing with the Stars with a distinctly Canadian touch – dancing on ice with hockey players! It’s strangely entertaining to see brute hockey players like Georges Laraque do ice acrobatics and lifts. It’s not all hilarity, some of the performances are really good!

Start watching at 1:50, and watch their expressions. He also does jumps!

I have some good ideas for the show though, they should have a special season where the don’t just match hockey players, but goalies! Or do a role reversal and have the male figure skaters skate with women hockey players.
