Ice skating on Christmas Day sounds very inviting on a cold Christmas day. You know, huddling around the TV, drinking hot chocolate, a roaring fire in the fireplace, chestnuts roasting, watching figure skating. OK, not in my house as the kids will have control of the remote as the parents prepare dinner. Plus it does not get that cold in the South.
But for those that do like this image, NBC Sports will be showcasing Sasha Cohen and Evan Lysacek at "Improv-Ice" at 3:00 PM ET. The event was taped on October 6, 2009 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
Here is the press release from NBC Sports.
