Skating Memories – Written by Steve Milton
I have a confession to make about the start of the competitive figure skating season during the early years of my journalistic career.
I had no clue what I was looking at.
And this was even after a few years of being widely referred to as an “expert figure skating journalist.” I think that was a relative term because there were no speciality websites or blogs in the late ‘1970s and early ’80s, and most “mainstream” media members who covered other sports, as I and my colleagues did, didn’t know the difference between a Salchow and a Jersey cow.
