Dear Pavel Bure At last- a great fan site for the Russia Ice Hockey Jet Stick! You are my favourite player. There is no other scorer as good as you! You show everyone that Russia sportsmen can strong and tough and that they are the best ice-hockey players. Keep up the good work! Larisa PS: I think you are very handsome, too!
Dear Irina Slutskaya I watched you win the Gold medal in solo figure skating in the 2003 European Championship and I think you are the best! You are a great figure skater. I was very happy when I learned that you have a son. I wish you all the very best! Katya, your number one fan.
Dear Marat Saphin, I’m on of your great fans. You are perfect in your white form. Your hands are strong and you shot very exactly. You are rather cute too. Be the first! Ksenia.
Dear Roman Pavlyuchenko, I think you are the best on the football field. You are like a rocket, so quick you are. I’m driven mad looking at you. It’s a pity that you are married. You are the best. Yours truly, Olga.
