Congratulations to my childhood hero, Michelle Kwan! (Who am I kidding, she’s still my hero!)
After accolades piled on top of other accolades, she now has one more thing to celebrate — she’s engaged. And the skating world couldn’t be happier for her.
The lucky guy (read: luckiest guy on the planet!) is Clay Pell — the grandson of the former Rhode Island senator Claiborne Pell who created the Pell Grants for college students.
Smart, successful, good-looking, and knee-deep in the inner-workings of Washington? It’s a match made in heaven.
Best wishes to Michelle and Clay as they begin this new chapter of their lives together!
Don’t forget to grab the issue of People magazine with details on the ring, and comments from Michelle herself.
But for now, here’s this.
… Okay, yes. That was an easy way to jump back into the skating scene. But for real, I’m back. And, conveniently, so is skating! Starting this weekend with the inaugural U.S. Skating Classic, to be held in Salt Lake City. For a full Icenetwork streaming schedule, check here.
Good luck to the competitors. Let’s get this thing going!
