A New Skating Season, a New “Battle”

Battle of the Blades

If you’ve read this blog before you know I’m a fan of CBC’s “Battle of the Blades“. I like it in part because it heralds the start of a new skating season after a long summer break. I like it because tough hockey players say over and over again how hard figure skating is. And I like it because it’s a bit ludicrous, in a fun and playful way.

That said, I can understand why you might hate the show. Take Harrison Mooney, an author of Puck Daddy, Yahoo’s hockey blog. He’s committed to watching and reviewing every episode. Here’s last week’s review. Clearly, he’d rather be smell-testing used hockey gear.

I’ve been reading his reviews each week and can sympathize with his frustration. The judges fall all over themselves complimenting the skater when they’re actually pretty terrible. The programs are seriously cheesed up. Plus, the hockey players end up looking silly, which must be irritating for a hardcore hockey fan.

I have issues with the show too. When the judges tell the hockey players that they look like figure skaters that’s an insult to real male pairs skaters who are a lot more than jungle gyms for their female counterparts. The addition of social media Maura this season is also hard to take.

But, I’m still a fan. It’s nice to see professional figure skaters (who haven’t been paid big salaries throughout their careers) get some time in the public eye. It must bolster their show skating careers and bring in bigger audiences. Plus, if you don’t take it too seriously, it’s a good bit of fun.

    Hey, Brian Berard was actually doing some of the guys’ steps from the Ravensburger with Marie-France, shows you how insanely easy the guys’ steps are in that dance but they did look quite nice together.
