* Dear Mary,
*         What would you have had Kerrigan do with her life to make it
* more noble?  Why shouldn't she make all the deals she can?  What do you
* want from her?  What is your problem?
I can't speak for Mary, but it would have been nice if she (N) had had any class
and Olympic spirit. She was pretty snide, rude, and generally petty about her
finish. By comparison, although Tonya had her own troubles (I thought she'd
lose it when she stopped her program the first time and asked for a
mulligan), she displayed a much happier attitude along the lines of "at least
I got to compete." Even if it was bs, it's called good sportsmanship to
pretend. Nancy's comments toawrd Oksana Bayul, and her blaming judges for the
decision instead of her own skating, is pretty charmless.
Even Muhammad Ali was able to admit defeat when he lost...
