No, it isn't time for the Olympic Games yet, but that doesn't mean you should completely ignore figure skating. Remember when you tried to skate and were all wobbly ankles and inadvertent ice angels? Now watch the national, professional and world champions (Stars on Ice) as they make double and triple jumps seem as simple as rising from a chair. Pretty cool, right? Exactly.
Why go: The movements are pretty, the style is omnipresent, but these folks are athletes.
Reconsider: Piped-in music, and you will get bashed in the leg by a kid's skate case.
