It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 25 years since the whole kerfuffle regarding Tanya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan/Jeff Gilooly/Shawn Eckhardt took place (if a plot to kill a cute figure skater days before she was to compete against you at the Olympics can be described as a *kerfuffle.) But The Mayor stands by his word and will not relent.
The Mayor actually remembers the whole event somewhat wrongly. The Mayor thought Jeff Gilooly whacked Kerrigan on the knee making her scream out *WhyEEEEEEEEEEEEE?*, when in fact it was actually Shane Stent that whacked Kerrigan on the knee making her scream out *WhyEEEEEEEEEEE?*
It was Gilooly and Eckhardt who hired Stent to whack Kerrigan (WhyEEEEE?), and Harding claims, to this day, that she didn’t know about the whole plot to destroy her nemesis, Nancy Kerrigan.
Kerrigan went on to win a silver medal and Harding came in 8th. The Mayor also remembers during one of her first skates, Harding’s skate got messed up and she had to stop and ask for help. She started to cry. She looked so sad. And The Mayor wasn’t there to give the chubby Harding a warm hug. That’s probably why she lost so badly, That, and the fact she was a horrible skater with incredibly bad decision-making abilities.
Anyway, there’s an updated picture of Harding, sitting outside her home, having a coffee and a smoke. And if any of you folk tell me that’s not EXACTLY how you pictured her 25 years in the here and now, The Mayor would have to size you up and call you a lying asshole.
