    V&M provided the serious Spanish flair, lovely outfits, gorgeous. Little stumble on one twizzle, but obviously the leaders.

    Wow Tess and Scott!! Amazing....loved it. The first lift was incredible! Fabulous use of the music, expression, and use of her skirt! Definetly blew everyone else away!

    Loved the Kerr energy and character. They might have been sloppy in points though. Lots of potential.

    Thoughts on V/M?

    I really like the Kerrssss....but when I saw the program I had the feeling that the judges would not like it

    Gorshkova Butikov 45.58
    Russian
    High, bright fuchsia boots with upturned pointy toes on both
    She has fuchsia round hat, black fur edging, and a long braid with a fuchsia bow.
    White coats with heavy, heavy trim.
    He has fuchsia baggy pants
    Sit spin twizzle one way, regular the other. Not sure they got enough forward motion in the sit spin
    Unison off, often
    Nice hydroblade lift to the side with her leg up way high
    Very spirited rendition and I hope to see this later in the year.
    They are behind NavBoms, overall

    Samuelson Bates 46.55
    Dixie Chicks Medley (Long Time Gone & White Trash Wedding)
    He is infull cowboy regalia with fringed chaps and vest and hat.
    She is in short red halter top, Daisy Dukes
    Very bad stumble by Evan in ae Twizzle.
    Funny some times they deliberately don't point their feet, but sometimes they forget and point them.
    Nifty lift.
    2nd to Nav Boms in OD but first overall.


    Pechalat Bourzat 56.34
    Thank God I'm a Country Boy Dolly Parton, Roy something or other plus a country waltz
    He in red shirt and desert camo chaps over jeans.
    She has gold hula skirt and camisole top in brown with gold edging. Really cool cowboy boots
    Nice edging during the slow part
    Good clogging during the fast part
    Assisted Back flip over Fabian's back to end
    Suspect this is not a winner

    Kerr/Kerr 54.73
    Johnny Cash I've been everywhere
    She's a truck driver in bare midriff top and Daisy Dukes
    He's in plaid shirt, jeans, wide brim straw hat, hitchhiking
    unison breaks in s/l he jumps over her
    flip and turnlift cool
    Huge side kick with heel click by John
    They get into a pretzel with him driving the truck to end.
    Great fun. French crowd loved it.
    Now behind P&B

    Virtue/Moir 61.91
    In black again. Rose in hair. Moir has white shirt.
    Farrulas (flamenco)
    Should go into first by a lot
    Lots of the required angst and skirt swishing.
    The clapping action and arm movements in he first set of twizzles was very cool, too.
    Really great S/L step with recrossing steps.
    Lift was not smooth yet, and not particularly in character
    Great first outing of this dance though.

    Close, almost a tie between the American couples in 4th & 5th, and then a point difference between 2nd&3rd, and of course V&M are untouchable. The FD should decide who places where.

    Thanks, guys/ice dancers, for an enjoyable day of ice dancing!

    OMG, Tessa and Scott were amazing. I had a question mark about her dress length, but the fabric they chose has fantastic movement to it and was a great choice. Should be even better by the end of the season!

    You are seriously biased, i can say. The Kerr's routine had quite a few glitches, P & B were a lot cleaner!

    For the first time out, it looked very good. It should serve them well in their quest for the Olympic podium, well received and it's actually better than their last 2 years OD. I like it a lot!

    FSU from those who attended the practice sessions. Apparently they were imprecise and stiff during the CD/OD practises.

    Maybe its the Original Dance in general, having an OD like the folk dance gives skaters a broad music spectrem to choose from, which leads to variety within the field, which is good considering both 2002 and 2006 olympics had latin themes after 5 teams they all sound and look the same (to me at least). But it just seems that the olympics are going to be one great big hoe down, in an effort to endear themselves to the Canadian crowd. Besides Folk was the original dance two years ago, I am all folked out....what is wrong with the Swing Combo, that is great number to do in an olympic year. Fast, Exciting, and gets the crowd involved.
