starbucks skaters

I have seen a lot of great skating in my day, but this year’s Starbucks Skating Team is sensational – have you seen them perform yet? If not, click here:

Sensational Starbucks Skaters

I have never seen skaters hold spread eagles for so long. I have never seen skaters maintain so much flow with their feet facing in opposite directions. This is surely a record. (Be jealous, Brian Boitano.) Skating students: please take note of their excellent posture, and how they smile through the whole thing.

It must be all that coffee. Personally, I don’t believe in the stuff (bold-face lie), but I do appreciate how Starbucks repeatedly features skaters in their holiday iconography.

Happy New Year!
