Happy Halloween from Any Sport Any Time everyone.
Sunday night I will be keeping a close eye to the television set, so I haven’t decided if I am going to be passing out candy so far.
The best costume in the sports world I have seen to date came from Tony Kornheiser on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption. On Friday’s show he dressed up as Spanish golf star Miguel Angel Jimenez–the mustache, cigar, wig and ponytail. As they say in the Mastercard commercial–priceless.
Here are the events I’m be watching this weekend.
Saturday–12pm–Skate Canada Pairs’ Long Program from Kingston–CBC–This will be my first glance of two up and coming Canadian figure skaters– 20 year old Paige Lawrence of Kipling, Saskatchewan and Rudi Swiegers of Brandon. The duo finished fourth at the 2009 World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria and are sitting in third place after the short program. The leaders are Russians Lubov Iliushechkina and Nodari Maisuradze of Russia.
