WHY, KWAN? D'OH!
I haven't seen this kind of drama at the Olympics since Tonya Harding
. On Sunday, figure skater Michelle Kwan
bowed out of the Torino games after straining a groin muscle during her first practice a day earlier. "I respect the Olympics too much to compete [if] I don't feel I can be at my best," she told the Associated Press. Knowing it had just lost its most recognizable star, NBC tried to keep the ice princess front and center by offering her a commentator gig; however, she declined. Emily Hughes
has been tapped to replace Kwan on the U.S. team.
