Lloyd, Lloyd, Lloyd.... Let me explain something to you. This e-mail scandal thing may work for your Charlie Sheens and your Ritchie Samborras... But you are not a rock star or a sitcom lead/son of a fictitious TV president.

You are a one-time World Pair (not even Singles!) Champion and Olympic Bronze Medalist from Canada (not even the U.S. for Pete's sake!) who, at the moment, doesn't even have a job.

This is not a case of All PR is Good PR. This is a case of Who is he? Who is She? Why should I care now?

Skating romantic scandals rarely end well. Sure, Oksana Grishuk, Maia Usova and Sasha Zhulin got some initial attention when news of their triangle hit the press. But, I ask you: where are Oksana and Maia now? (Luckily, this blog has the answer - click the links!)

Oh, Lloyd, Lloyd, Lloyd... no coaching job, your TV gig coming to an end, no performing prospects (partner Isabelle Brassuer is busy with her good marriage and non-abandoned child)... just how do you expect to keep Buffy in the style she's grown accustomed to, now that Skating With Celebrities is over, and you guys are out there in the real world?

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. If he was the Bronze Medalist from U.S. he would be...what? Better?

    If that's what you meant, shame on you.

    I meant that Pair medalists rarely get the professional opportunities that Singles do. And Pair medalists from countries other than the U.S. have even less. Unless you are G&G or Bereznaia & Sikharulidze, you are not going to get the prime spots on the big tours that play American cities (Stars on Ice Canada, for instance, is a much smaller tour than Stars on Ice U.S.).

    Lloys is already at a professional disadvantage being a Pairs skaters, and being a non-American one makes his earning potential even less.
