    Towards the middle of the program, she slipped her arms through the front straps to reveal the sparkly top... like what little kids do with overalls. It was tres cool... of course, my husband isn't as cultured as Rgirl's honey and thought she'd just put the dress on backwards... Too bad about their fall. Hope to see them tonight.

    Thanks KW, I know I was watching but didn't see that. I love this team and am hoping she is OK.

    On CBC this morning, they said Patrice practised today but not M-F. She may take an Olympic-approved injection for the pain but nothing has been decided yet. I feel just sick for them. Marie-France is so tiny and, speaking as a thritysomething, your body just doesn't bounce back at our age like a younger athlete. I hope she's okay.

    Joesitz-I guess last night Patrice said he may have gotten excited and got going a little faster than usual in his turns so centrifugal force would be the cause.

    Watched the D&L OD mishap in slow motion on the CBC post-comments segment (Brian Williams and Lori Nicol) last night. According to Lori Nicol, and from what I could see (the camera angle wasn't great), Marie-France's fingers were gradually being pulled apart from the centrifical force of the spin. She let go first and Patrice of course, could not prevent the fall because all he had was a hold on her knee.

    CBC interviewed Patrice this afternoon. Showed him practicing alone. Later he said Marie-France went to the hospital, was x-rayed, and was diagnosed with a deep tissue and bone bruise. They are waiting until closer to the event today to see if freezing her hip would actually help her enough to get her through the FD.

    Just my opinion, but Patrice neither looked nor sounded hopeful during the interview. Here is hoping the hours inbetween his interview and the event tonight will do two things: give the team enough time to mentally get over the accident and give Marie-France enough energy to truly perform in the FD.

    The Globe and Mail had a brief article today about them. Patrice said he skated alone, because Marie-France still could not put any weight on the leg. It certainly doesn't sound good for tonight. He actually cried when he was interviewed this morning. I hope they make a speedy recovery.

    You know what I liked that i forgot to comment on: when Barbie went down there was the now infamous "how could you?" glare but with M-F and Patrice, he was so concerned for her and carried her. It was obvious that her health was more important to him than any medal and it was very touching to me.

    Not to condone the glare of FP, but neither of them was injured in that fall. In the case of D&L, MF was obviously in a lot of pain. Besides, IIRC, D&L are a couple off the ice, so he was concerned about her not just as a dance partner.

    I hope she's doing better. I really like this couple, and I love their free program. I can't believe how dangerous dance has become!

    If you check the live results right now, you can see that they withdrew. I'm sooo sad for them, this was a terrible way to end their Olympics. Wishing Marie-France a speedy recovery!

    It has to be a man thing. I am the huge figureskating fan and I was watching all of the dance and my husband noticed the same thing! I was like "what"? And he said, "watch", Sure enough when I re-watched it on another channel, darn it he was right. It must be then men's eyes are real in tune when women are about to take off their clothes. I must say it was an amazing effect, so subtle for women, I bet the male judges didn't miss it either.
