Chickens and Michael Weiss. Gotta Love Public Television.

According to, three-time U.S. National Champion Michael Weiss is going to be on PBS Kids' Channel Sprout next week ("The Sunny-Side Up Show") teaching a puppet chicken to skate.

Proving that all things are possible and even the most far-reaching goals can be achieved, three-time U.S. Champion, two-time World bronze medalist and two-time Olympian figure skater Michael Weiss will take Chica the Chicken, the puppet sidekick from Sprout’s ‘The Sunny Side Up Show,’ out on the ice for her debut skating lesson at the rink where he received his very first medal.

Considering my lifelong obsession with puppets, I consider the fact that Weiss didn't mention this during our interview a missed opportunity on his part (forget the new code of points - I could have asked him if he is a Kermit or a Fozzie guy). Nonetheless, you should all set your DVRs for Good Sports Week next week to capture the sure-to-be-groundbreaking footage.
