Barbara and I spent an enjoyable afternoon yesterday at the annual Ice Chips show in Boston (not Cambridge, even though the arena is on the extended Harvard campus). The “special guest star” was Sasha Cohen, but we went primarily to see my student Emily Naphtal, the 2007 Mexican National Senior Ladies Silver Medalist. (Mexican? Weston? Don’t ask. It’s a long story.) It was an afternoon of first-rate figure skating, with skaters ranging from tiny kids to senior citizens, but mostly teens and young adults. Go see it next year!
