Is anyone going to watch the Winter Olympics? I guess I will. I am a fan of figure skating. Although I couldn’t name any of the current skaters. I miss the days of Nancy Kerrigan, Viktor Petrenko, Elvis Sojko, Kristy Yamaguchi, Katarina Witt, and, the greatest skater of all time, Brian Boitano:

This Brian Boitano:
He was, is, and always will be, the best figure skater in the history of figure skaters. Why? He’s Brian Muthafuckin’ Boitano! His 1988 gold medal winning long program from the Calgary Winter Olympics still holds up.

This store is the only official Brian Boitano store featuring designs about Brian and skating. This store also has express permission from the creators of South Park to use the “What Would Brian Boitano Do?” tag line.

Shit. I love the internet.
