What's Russian for "I like what I see"?
I'll join in with my support for these two.I'm glad TT & MM won the Olympics,and I'm sorry that they made it clear they will not be attending the 2006 Worlds in my backyard,literally (the Pengrowth Saddledome Stadium is about 7 blocks away from where I live).Plus,Tatiana looks so WOW in that tight blue catsuit for their short program,I can almost hear her voice saying "Resistance is futile".

Absolutely great idea for a thread, THANKS! And yes, a heart felt congratulations to the Olympic gold medalists, and YES totally, they not only were a class a part in this field, but truly have come such a long way. All the deserved critiques notwithstanding, the control, beautiful lines, skill and competitive spirit truly moved me.
Congratulations to Totmianina/Marinin for skating two gold-standard performances in Torino.
I love their skating to death, and I hope they have a lot of happiness in their future.
This is supposed to be a T&M appreciation thread. What are you doing on this? Post your negative comments somewhere else.

I have really enjoyed watching them develop since 2001. That was when I first noticed that they could become champions. They delivered two fantastic performances under pressure. They really were the class of the field.
Congratulations Tatiana and Maxim!
Agreed Bravo T/M!!!! Well done and well deserved!
