Take Me

A Tribute to "Walk on the Wild Side"

One of my favorite programs of Todd's is his "Walk on the Wild Side" short program. Some friends of mine began calling the closing pose of the program his "Take Me" pose, so here is my tribute.

1996 Skate America

This photo is from a Skate America practice on October 31, 1996. Todd was wearing his costume, although he didn't keep this costume for very long. This was one of the first times Todd did "WotWS". The picture isn't very good because it was taken with my old camera. However, I'm just amazed that I have a "Take Me" picture from that competition.
