At any rate, last night at the Stars on Ice show I overheard the camera crew betting on how many re-skates they were going to have to re-tape. It was $5 to play. Just like the football pool at work I gave my bet, but didn't put any money in. I said there would be eight re-skates.
I had volunteered as an usher so I could watch the show for free. Luckily I know the right people and for the last two years have been placed on ice level seating the VIP's. For the first time watching Stars on Ice, I was more interested in how many times the skaters fell or flubbed their program. From the first act there was going to be possibly four re-skates and so going into the second act, I thought my chances of reaching eight was pretty good.
Unfortunately the second act came and went with only one re-skate. The main camera guy was going to be the winner with a pick of five. He's been doing this for years though. I know what you must be thinking, "This person is seriously demented and needs to immediately check themselves into Gamblers Anonymous." But like I said people that know me also find my "gambling problem" funny because they all know I'd make a pathetic gambler, I'm way too frugal.
