Those Were the Days...

Those who watched Archie and Edith Bunker sing the "All In the Family" theme song will enjoy this courtesy of figure skating coach Russ Scott:

Courtesy Russ Scott: (to the tune "Those Were the Days" that Archie and Edith Bunker sang in the old 70s All In the Family television show.)

"Boy the things Dick Button said
About laybacks like Peggy Flemming did.
Fans like us we had it made.
Those were the days.

And you knew who to watch back then.
When girls did spirals and boys could spin.
Mister we could use a man.
Like Scott Hamilton again.

Didn’t need to calculate
Crazy scores to enjoy the skate.
We had Scott, Brian, Dorothy, and Michelle too
Those were the days."

My husband, Dan, and I came up with this version:

"Everyone knew who would WIN!...
.....Dick and Peggy knew who was IN.
...And yes...
we need a skater like Tonya Harding ag-in!"

"Didn't need no IJS.
The judges knew who was best.
Quadruple jumps made no sense.
Those were the DAYS!"
