The ice dancing competition at the Winter Olympics is one that most guys can safely excuse themselves from watching. It's typically pretty painful to watch a pair of spandexed-up skaters prancing around on the ice.
This year, though, I'll be tuning in, at least for the tango portion. You see, all 23 couples will be required to perform a sensual 'tango romantica' routine. It's sexy. It's heated. And while that might sound terrible, it's actually awesome for one reason: four of the 23 duos are brother and sister, including the ones pictured above.
Yep. Sinead and John Kerr, pictured above, will have to do everything but seal the deal in front of a televised audience of millions of people.
"On the ice, we don't think of each other as brother and sister," John Kerr told The New York Times. Careful, John. If you go out there and get caught up in the moment, how are you going to explain popping a chubby on national TV?
One dancer, Christina Beier of Germany, told the Times that after an injury last year, she and her brother William attempted routines with other partners. That didn't last long: "With others, it was harder. It is from nature that we move together. When we got back together, it was like we never split up."
I'm sorry, Ms. Beier, but it sounds like your choreographer and/or sex ed teacher may be from West Virginia. Here's a bonus bold prediction: this is going to create some awkward family reunions.
