Yuna Kim, Hugh Jackman and Lots of Sentimentality

In these days, we as skating fans live in our little world, with the general population much oblivious to us or the skaters. So, when I see even a glimpse of skating in the popular media outside the scope of Olympics frenzy, I always get goosebumps.

I remember reading about Russell Crowe congratulating Alexei Yagudin for his 2001 performance to Gladiator back in the day when skating was highly popular, and if I am not mistaken, Crowe also sent him a signed photo or some other memorabilia.

 Skating's very best Maximus

Nowadays, skating is much less visible in popular media than in Alexei's days so doesn't that fact alone make this  little gesture all the more worthwhile?

Thank you Mr Jackman and good luck on your Oscar campaign for Les Miserables..
