Men Who Help to Open A Nancy Kerrigan & Tonya Harding Museum.

Using Kickstarter for anything is kind of embarrassing and, like, a strong indication that you’re either poor or sans dignity. So if you’re going to use it, make it fucking count. And if you’re going to use it as “a joke” like that guy who wanted to make a potato salad, and now, the guy who wants to co-found a Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding museum, make the joke turn into something worthwhile.

As any “man” (and god knows there are few) who appreciates kitsch will understand, the incident that occurred between Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding in January of 1994 (look it up if you’re too much of a zygote/mongo to not know) is the most mainstream version of camp in the ice skating world apart from Blades of Glory. If the “museum,” which will be erected in the hallway of an apartment building in Williamsburg, really wanted to dare to be different, the co-founders would have instead tried to raise money for a The Cutting Edge memorabilia archive. But no, everyone loves a dredged up scandal that seems just esoteric enough.
