In her college days, Spooner made rushes up the ice where it certainly looked like she was "unstoppable".
I miss those days when Spooner was taking over games and everyone was saying it seemed like she was at OSU forever. :)
This may not sit well with some but I'm going to be brutally honest and call it as I see it.
It was great when she was here as a Buckeye but that's in the past. When I see her on Team Canada playing against Team USA she's dirty & underhanded. She doesn't need to be with her skills but that's what Team Canada does to try and beat USA and my loyalty is to USA.
There's no such thing as coincidences.
Just turned on the tv to see if there was a baseball game on and what ends up staring back at me?...Battle of the Blades and Natalie Spooner.
Heard about it but don't recall ever seeing it before...she was impressive and for a big girl (I think she said 5'10" 180 lbs.) I thought she was extremely impressive with some of the techniques she has learned.
And kudos to her partner for lifting her numerous times and making it look easy. They looked like a natural fit personality wise.
Sarah Nurse was one of the judges.
This is not the performance that I saw but this is quite good as well:
As for the original topic, I think it's outstanding that Natalie can excel at both sports. I applaud her for work, and am proud that she's a Buckeye.
Thanks for posting, Blackbeard.
Amanda Kessel is also competing this season and after watching the videos of both of them I have to give Spooner the edge here.
EDIT: I just checked and it turns out Kessel has already been eliminated, so I guess I'm not wrong :D
Who would have the personality to be good at this? Thinking of former Gophers, I'd say that Rachael Bona would be the most natural performing, while the Brodt sisters were the most likely to be great at the mechanics of figure skating. What do others think?
