    Charlie had one bad competition last season. Shabalin has had far more falls and stumbles over the past few years.

    First, I love D/W. I enjoy them more then D/S. And I agree that Maxim has a serious knee problem. That being said, there's a bad competition and there's a bad competition. IMO D/S have the judges' grace, and the home advantage, which means D/W will have to rise to the occasion and not give the judges an excuse by silly stumblings and mistakes.

    D and S also had that wonderful Waltz from the 40s which steered them into 1st place.

    I'm more interested in Crone/Poirier and Rubleva/Shefir to show something here.

    In light of Rubleva's history, that was an unfortunate way of expressing your appreciation of them . I hope all they'll show is great skating!

    Interesting to note...despite the terrible OD, D/W came back strong in the FD to actually beat D/S and got the bronze medal. I think the judges certainly didn't hold that OD against them. I do agree with you, though, about D/S's judges' graces and home advantage. D/W will need to be flawless, I'm thinking. Which so early in the season, they may or may not be. That goes for D/S, too, though.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. What is it that you know, that I don't know about Rubleva's history? I'm jealous the MM knows (see below).

    Now I remember, the wardrobe miscalculation. But that won't get her extra points. Or will it?

    AFAIK, all it got them was a lot of Youtube views. They were interviewed here a couple of months ago, and sounded like they'd taken the whole thing pretty well. It must have been terribly embarassing for her.

    "Miscalculation" means something was planned, but badly.
    "Misfunction" means something didn't work, or broke.

    The current buzz-phrase in the US, since Janet Jackson bust out of her top on national TV, is "wardrobe misfunction."

    I wasn't implying anything about you, seniorita.
