Only in Canada? Battle of the Blades

If you can access Canadian TV, check out the Battle of the Blades finale on Monday evening.

No lie; it has been a delightful series featuring duos of Canadian hockey players and their ice dancing Olympic prize winning partners. After reading a NY Times article on the show, I was up at midnight watching youtube re-runs of the early shows. Woke the Aussie and together we grinned through five youtube renditions of the 'competition'.
