Nearly 20 Years Later I Still Get Teary

In between chores today I have had the CTV tv coverage of the Canadian Grand Prix figure skating playing as background. I haven't followed figure skating for years, but used to enjoy it very much.

A few minutes ago I decided to watch the YouTube video of our former World Champions Viktor Kraatz and Shae-Lynn Bourne dancing their fabulous Riverdance routine in Nagano in 1988. All these years later I still burst into tears watching it. Celtic music makes me cry anyway, but to have such an amazingly creative bit of skating choreography paired with it....wow, it is emotionally powerful.

If you have never seen it, give it a look. It is very cool!
