He Didn't Do a Backflip

James and I participated in a workshop at Lipscomb University today, and it was great. Very informative, thought-provoking, soul-stirring, and exhausting. I'll blog about that later.

When I was looking at the schedule for the day, I chuckled a little to myself. "Huh, the guy who's speaking at lunchtime is named Scott Hamilton. I bet he gets jokes about the figure skater all the time."

I really did think that.

Guess what?



It was THE Scott Hamilton. You know, the 4-time World Champion figure skater? You know, the Olympic gold medal figure skater? You know, the man I've watched skate all my life? The one who has always been my favorite?

THAT Scott Hamilton.

Also? He was an incredible speaker. The story of his life, his career, and his faith is truly inspirational. He had us laughing, crying, and laughing again, and he was very gracious when I spoke with him.

I spoke with Scott Hamilton.

Over and out.

I don't know, he's kinda blurry in your picture. I call "photoshopped."

Pfft. No. He's blurry because James was in charge of the camera/phone.

That's hilarious. I so feel your pain, though. I nearly yelled at Robert Duvall in a restaurant once. :-)
