29 Takes on Skating

From the Nancy Kerrigan Brother Attack to Engagements on Ice

— January 26, 2010 — Lifestyle
The brutality of the Nancy Kerrigan brother attack has people in shock. The brother of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan has been charged with attacking their father and "leaving him to die on a bloody kitchen floor," reports the NY Daily News.

There's nothing upbeat about the situation. But, the depressing mess has inspired this collection of interesting innovations in skating. From the Nancy Kerrigan brother incident to fashionable outdoor roller rinks, here are some of the most unique takes on skating out there (and I apologize for presenting this cluster with such a morbid introduction).
