Congrats to S&S! Not sure how indicative this is for Turin, since S&S and P&T were quite close. A drop for O&S from last season, but I think it's because of the improvement of P&T and S&S rather than a drop in quality of O&S.
GO S&S!!!!! I am still coming down from my "US Nationals High" and was so excited to see S&S with the silver. I really like this pair - best wishes to them at the Oly's. I know Pet/Tik were 2nd in the short. Does anyone know if they made mistakes in the long? Or did S&S just outskate them? I like all these pairs, but a "dark horse" for possible bronze will sure make the Oly pairs event more interesting. GOOD for them!!
S&S actually won the bronze
these are the FS standings. P&T were ahead by about 2 points in the SP, so they won the silver by a hair.
I was very pleased for S&S, and I am very excited about the Olympics.
Let's hope they are shown on ABC.
No mistakes, Doggygirl. S&S outskated P&T in both the TES and PCS scores (by about one point in each of the two categories).

thanks for the correction.
now I am really shocked. Good for them!
Got to check the scores. These are European judges judging Europeans! S&S will be in the mix with at least one of the Chinese Pairs for the Olys.
The Czech couple had a horrific fall on a lift. Many people in the arena even thought she had killed herself. Scary scene ...
They withdrew but the speaker announced later that Olga was ok.
Spectacular silver medal for the Germans. I was thrilled.
On the Ice
A BIG High-Five to S&S! I love this team, and hope to see them on the podium in Torino (and Calgary!)!
Also, congrats to T&M on their 5 European Titles!
