History of MKF

Welcome to the Michelle Kwan Forum! This forum is here for one basic purpose, to discuss figure skater Michelle Kwan and her skating. MKF was originally created to link different Michelle websites to the same message board, since at that point, there were so many scattered Michelle boards on different fan pages. We wanted this forum to be a central place for Michelle fans to meet because it was hard to go to all those separate message boards regularly.

This thread concerns information on MK Forum history, common abbreviations you might see used, and stories you may see referenced.


The Michelle Kwan Forum was established in March 1999 by Administrators Heather and Jenny. Fast forward almost seven years and membership has grown to over 6700 individuals.

Unique Forum Stories

The Chicken Sacrifice Story -- One of the "inside jokes" of the forum, this began when a visitor once asked if MKF was a cult to Michelle. The visitor commented that posters at MKF were very obsessive and that pretty soon we would be having sacrifices to Michelle. Obviously MKF is not a cult, but someone decided to make a joke out of it by playing along with the idea, so they responded to the visitor by saying that daily sacrifices had been going on for some time. Another poster added that the reason Michelle didn't win the 1999 World Championships was because we didn't make enough sacrifices. After that, someone offered to bring the chicken next time, but when a live chicken couldn't be found, KFC was used as a substitute. Now it's ballooned to the point where many posters joke about eating chicken (or Tofu, for vegetarians!) to ensure Michelle skating well!

The stories about other food items -- Along the same lines as the chicken story, people joke about drinking orange juice so that Michelle won't get sick during a competition. Other things some fans do before Michelle competes is eat Junior Mints (Michelle's favorite candy) and potato chips (for her to draw a good skate order.)

Mooing -- Certain posted started to moo at each other because they love cows. Some posters started mooing each other, and it made them laugh because it was funny and silly. Then others on the forum joined in to moo each other. It's just a fun thing some posters like to say to each other brighten each other's day.
