As a child I spent nearly every winter weekend at the outdoor rink in my hometown, but as I’ve gotten older, my love of the sport has turned to watching it on television.  Perhaps you are like me and enjoy watching figure skating, but you might be wondering, “so what does the sport have to do with IT?”  Bear with me and I’ll explain.
