Sporting Armitage


There has been speculation as to what sorts of R&R Mr. A might get up to following the wrap of The Hobbit, Comic-Con and assorted and sundry career-related and family activities. Here are some possibilities.



Might he do some schussing on the ski slopes? Only, unlike in acting, we DON’T want you to break a leg.

Tennis, anyone?

Perhaps he’ll hit the ice? OOh, but watch out for those sticks, Rich. They can do some damage.

Perhaps he hopes to tell some whopper tales from a fishing trip.

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

    • Nadia, I used to be a big fan of Plushenko! Have to admit though I’d gone a little bit off him after the last Olympics. I didn’t like the fact that he blamed the scoring system/judges for his defeat instead of taking a good hard look at the construction of his programme. He sounded like a very sore loser to me. And I didn’t like his antics at the presentation ceremony either…stepping onto the gold medallist’s place first…What was that about? Anyway, I was really disappointed with (or by?) his behaviour. I still admire him as a skater, but not so much as a person.

  1. These manips look like so much fun. Richard does have the body to skate very well indeed, muscles deveoped in the right places. I just don’t know if it would be as much fun as skiing is for him. Flying downhill at 100+ kph is a thrill all its own. He says he loves feeling “out of control” and skating just won’t give you that, but as a dancer, he might find the challenge of doing it on ice appealing. Just the thought of ice dancing with Richard makes my pulse race.
