I was a competitive skater; ^^ is accurate

My skates were about $400 about 30 years to 25 years ago.
As others have said, just learning to skate is pretty inexpensive. God help you if your child gets into it. Its ultra competitive in this country, and very expensive.
But fun! I wasn't a great single skater, despite the money spent on my training, but I got into 'synchronized skating' - its like synchronized swimming but on ice. You don't have to have triple jumps to win international medals, and its a team sport (figure skating is individual - you don't learn much about working with others like in team sports)

The Patron Saint of Figure Skaters

Three things happened this morning, though not necessarily in the following order. One, my son was sent home from school for painting his face up like some fairy from Kiss. Two, my wife asked me for a divorce over cold scrambled eggs and a half-thawed waffle. Three, my daughter discovered a man, naked as Adam, dead and frozen to the floor of my ice rink.
My kid I can forgive for the reason that he's been excited for the longest time about going to this Kiss concert tonight. It's the first concert his mother and I have allowed him to go to. He's gotten into our good graces by mowing the lawn over the past month and keeping his room clean for two weeks

Ice Castles...

Loved that movie. Robbie had a tighty-whitey shot, when he's talking to Lexie on the phone. So sad when the fans threw the roses on the ice and since she can't see too well she skates into them and falls. Robbie goes onto the ice, picks her up, and carries her off. I wonder how many brides selected "Through the Eyes of Love" for their wedding ceremonies around that time? And the incomparable Colleen Dewhurst as the dykish, crusty skating coach who could have been an Olympic skating star and is trying to live her dream ala Mama Rose through Lexie. I can't see Colleen in a skimpy figure skating outfit, but maybe she was more petite in the day

How will Team USA will handle bigger ice surface for Olympics?  — CBSSports.com
ARLINGTON, VA -- One common theme this week when the American hopefuls for the Olympic team in Sochi this coming February was the ice. Specifically how it's bigger on the international level than where these guys play in the NHL almost exclusively.
