Kim Yu-na pleases the unpleasable

South Korea's Kim Yu-na skated an flawless long program earning gold in Vancouver, last night. Perhaps equally as impressive was that she managed to impress NBC figure skating commentator, Sandra "All Y'all Suck" Bezic. While Scott Hamilton acknowledges the human element and pressures skaters are under, Bezic is continually hyper-critical and bitter-sounding. Watching Kim, however, Bezic gushed, "Oh my goodness. This is glorious. It's one of the greatest Olympic performances I have ever seen!" Kim deserves gold for that comment alone.
