For the Sanctity of Figure Skating Pt. 2

September 27, 2012 § 1 Comment

We can’t let you tell everyone and the figure skating judges you’re Batman.

“I don’t know why this would be such a big deal.”

Well Luke, there’s just some things you can’t take back when you say it.


Like actually telling a friend who is a girl “Yes” when she asks if she looks fat in this dress, telling your prospective boss you have a really high collegiate GPA when you don’t, or telling everyone you’re figure skating to a very recognizable Hans Zimmer composition about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight. Or about a spoof of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight.

Because the Dark Knight was such a blockbuster hit, you take on the tough task of skating up against not only your opponents and the rules governing your event, but everyone else’s expectations regarding Bruce, Alfred, Lucius, Harvey, the Y So Serious dude and Jim Gordon. If your skating routine doesn’t ooze crime-fighting, Tumblers pancaking Gotham City cop cars, the Joker doing magic tricks, Harvey Dent being a felon-convicting DA, well, everyone in the rink, including the judges will be disappointed by the caped crusader’s failure on ice. In the end, your score will reflect that.

Don’t tell people you’re Batman, but in the case you do, succeed long enough on the ice to leave it a hero, and not a villain.
