Anchor Games: Ice Skating


STILL UNDERWAY … WHICH MEANS
SO
ARE THE ANCHOR GAMES. JUST LIKE YEARS PAST … JOHN
CARLIN AND I TRY OUR LUCK AT
SOME
OF THE MOST POPULAR WINTER
SPORTS. NATS
THERE ARE FLAMES HEATING
UP THE ICE FOR DAY TWO OF THE
ANCHOR GAMES … AND WE’RE NOT
TALKING ABOUT OUR ON-AIR
TALENT. TWO MEMBERS OF LIBERTY
UNIVERSITY’S SYNCHRONIZED
SKATING TEAM HAVE THE
IMPOSSIBLE TASK OF TEACHING
LINDSEY AND JOHN ANYTHING OTHER
THAN STANDING ON THE ICE. IF YOU’LL REMEMBER IN 20-
14 … JOHN PULLED OFF AN UPSET
WIN AS HE GLIDED ACROSS THE ICE … CHANNELING HIS INNER SCOTT
HAMILTON. WHILE LINDSEY … WELL .. I
COULD
MAKE A TONYA HARDING JOKE BUT I
WON’T. LET’S JUST SAY .. IT DIDN’T COME
AS
EASY AS SHE HAD HOPED. CAN HE GO
TWO AND OH ON THE
ICE .. LET’S GET YOU OUT TO THE
RINK. THE FIRST STEP ON THE ICE FEELS GOOD .. AFTER FOUR YEARS OF
LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF
JOHN’S UNEXPECTED VICTORY. TODAY … I AM A SERIOUS STUDENT
OF SKATING … I AM HERE TO
LISTEN
AND LEARN FROM OUR INSTRUCTORS
JORDAN AND KIMBERLY. BUT JOHN ISN’T SO ENTHUSIASTIC. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. LINDSEY I
HATE YOU. I JUST DON’T THINK I CAN MATCH LINDSEY’S ENTHUSIASM FOR FIGURE
SKATING … NOT TODAY. AND OUR TEACHERS .. RIGHT OFF
THE BAT .. SEEM A LITTLE
AMBITIOUS! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TEACH ME? WE WANNA TEACH YOU STUFF YOU MIGHT SEE IN THE OLYMPICS, SO
WE’RE GOING TO START WITH A
SPIN, DO A JUMP, MAYBE A SPIRAL
… DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS. NO! WAIT … WE AREN’T GOING TO
START WITH REGULAR OLE SKATING? WE’RE STARTING WITH SPINS, JUMPS
AND SPIRALS? SO SHOW ME WHAT IT
IS YOU THINK YOU WOULD LIKE TO
TRAIN ME TO DO. SO WE’RE GOING START WITH A SPIN
… SO WE’LL SHOW YOU THAT. YOU’RE GOING TO START WITH YOUR
FEET APART AND YOUR ARMS APART
AND THEN ON THE COUNT OF THREE
YOU’RE GOING TO BRING THEM ALL
TOGETHER. OH I GOT THAT … THAT’S A PIECE
OF CAKE! I MEAN SPINNING WE CAN
TOTALLY DO THIS! NOW YOU SAW ME JUST COME ONTO
THE ICE, RIGHT? I DID. I THINK
WE’RE GOING TO START WITH SOME
BACKWARDS SKATING. BACKWARDS
SKATING? HOW ABOUT FORWARDSKATIN
SETT ON SKATING TO THE WALLD BA AND GO IS NOT SO SIMPLE. I JUST LOOK LIKE I’M COLD. SINCE
THE FANCY FOOTWORK JUST ISN’T GOING TO HAPPEN FOR ME … I DECIDE TO PRACTINE INLINE
SKATING … WHILE LINDSEY
CONTINUES SPINS, SPIRALS AND
JUMPS OH MY! I HATE LINDSEY WARD. SWOOSH … EXCUSE ME LADIES. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN .. THE
VICTORY TODAY IS JOHN NOT ENDING UP AS ROAD KILL IN THE PATH OF
THE SYNCHRONIZED
SKATING TEAM. THERE’S NO BIG MOMENT OF
GLORY … A PROUD TEAR SHED … OR
EVEN THE HINT OF A DREAM COME
TRUE. THE WINNER HERE TODAY IS OUR EMPLOYER GRAHAM MEDIA … WHO DOESN’T HAVE TO PAY OUR
TWO CLUMSY ANCHORS SHORT-TERM
DISABILITY. I AM OFFICIALLY CONCEDING THIS
COMPETITION. WHAT, ARE YOU
QUITTING? TO LINDSEY WARD. I’M
NOT QUITTING .. IT’S JUST
HOPELESS. THERE’S NO WAY I CAN
BE AS GOOD AS YOU.
