For those of you who have been watching ice skating, you might be wondering who that mean commentator is, bagging on all the skaters. Well, it ain't Scott Hamilton, it's Dick Button. So who the hell is Dick Button and where does he get off?
It turns out old meany won figure skating golds at the 1948 St. Moritz games and 1952 Oslo games. He was the first man to land a double axel in competition (1948) and a triple jump of any kind (it was a triple loop) in competition (1952). So, I guess he's the man. After he stopped competing, he did the Ice Capades and got a law degree from Harvard. Go figure.
