I didn't know figure-skaters made that much. Btw, did anyone catch the women's final today?

I'm currently in Torino volunteering at the Olympics and met Weir strolling around in the city, shopping like a real rockstar. He is really tiny! I was told by other athletes at the Olympic Village that he disliked the rooms there because they were too bare :biggrin:. What a diva... but I like him!! (even if I prefer Plush)

not only that, i don't think she ever won a single pro tourny, period.

someone should introduce this guy to bryanboy, lol.
Believe it or not ... she didn't win any singles titles, but she did in fact win a number of Doubles titles (even Wimbledon) with Martina Hingus (of Switzerland). The funny thing, is that Martina absolutely HATED Anna because she (Anna) was making a lot of money purely on her looks - not her "talent" (tennis talent that is!). However, Martina was a shrewd person and realized that they would probably get a good crowd to cheer them on if she engaged Anna as her partner. No surprise that Hingus was #1 for a number of years!

His commentary has been good! I've been following Dick Button on twitter - he is awesome and has been hilariously snarky as usual.
