Blades Of Glory

To tell the truth, the only time I've ever seen Sasha Cohen was on an episode of Project Runway, and I have to say that ice skating fashion leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Though maybe if you slathered some grape jelly on it, it could be a little more appealing. All jelly jokes aside, Smucker's Stars on Ice is coming to town once again. This time, it's with their On the Edge: The Heart of the Champion performance on Valentine's Day, so guys take note. Depending on your lady friend, you may hate the fact that she makes you sit through the Olympics ice skating competition every four years, but if you want to make her happy on the most commercially biased holiday of all, give her the gift of a performance by famed skaters (such as Sasha Cohen, Ilia Kulik, pairs Olympic medalists Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao, and other special guests like Evan Lysacek) as they skate their way into her heart--your sacrifice will be duly noted and properly rewarded. The stars take to the ice at 3 p.m. at the American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Plaza. Ticket prices start at $25. Call 214-373-8000 or visit
