Torvill and Dean - Bolero

I should not have gone out last night because my chest infection is not going away, and alcohol and cigarettes are not helping matters. But it was a good night, and now I'm on holiday for a week with no plans. I'd have planned a trip away but I just bought a ticket to New Zealand and am flat broke, so I'm going to mooch around London instead. I think I'll go to the cinema a lot and watch TV and read comics and hang out with friends. Nice.

But this is not my point. Last night I was talking to this guy at the pub about Torvill and Dean and their spectacular gold winning ice dance to Bolero in the 1984 Olympics, which is weird I know but whatever. I hadn't seen it in many years so I found it on YouTube just now and watched it, and it's so extraordinarily moving and wonderful it made me cry my eyes out. It is absolutely the best ice dance routine of all time; I defy anyone not to be blown away.

You've probably all seen it before but it's worth rewatching, and if you haven't seen it, omg you're in for a treat.
