kristi yamaguchi wins dancing with the stars

Okay. I didn't watch a single episode of Dancing with the Stars this season. Despite its immense popularity, I've never really been into this show. But I've been hearing for months about how much Kristi Yamaguchi has been kicking some serious ass on the dance floor. Going into the competition, she was clearly the odds-on favorite, being a figure skater and all. My money was on her, and I didn't have to watch a single step to be sure of it.

Tonight, she won: Winner is crowned on 'Dancing With the Stars'. She walked into the finale with a perfect score (60) and left with that ugly-ass mirroball trophy. The former champion Olympic figure skater beat out pro football star Jason Taylor, and broke the string of four consecutive male winners on the show. She was the first woman to claim the Dancing crown since the show's opening season. Like I knew you would, Kristi.
