    I can't believe I have to sit through 9 couples just to see Meryl & Charlie crowned the champs (deservedly so btw).

    Still, I hope these couples keep me awake & make it an enjoyable two hrs. until the ladies take the ice.

    Tanith sums it up best via Twitter:

    Happy Birthday @CharlieAWhite !! I wish I could do a FD run-thru in Russia on my b-day, lucky...

    Trevor Young then tweeted "You beat me to it tanith."

    Heh. I have to say that I have high hopes for C/P's free dance (even if I don't love them like I want to). And Anna Cappellini is simply one of the most gorgeous human beings on the planet, and C/L's free is intriguing.

    After Evgeni Plushenko's fabulous skate (& the men), I got kinda bored with pairs, and now I'm hoping that at least a few of these couples will make it enjoyable like the ones at TEB did. JMHO.

    OT, but Trevor Young is the most entertaining guy on ice in the U.S.A. I wish there were more professional and show opportunities that he and Andrea could take advantage of.

    This is a really awesome time to be a fan of ice dancing. The Hermanns had a solid program - one fall during the step sequence (looked like just a lapse in concentration), but otherwise enjoyable.

    I liked the germans music selections, suites well a FD to alternate blues with quick step.

    This CZE couple is dancing to the same exact music Zhulin used with his wife/partner back in the 90's (can't recall her name but Dick Button used to wax poetic about her beauty, lol). I must dig into my tapes later on this afternoon & find that exquisite performance they did to the blues.
