    I think the world of each of America's top four ice dance teams right now and wish them all the success in the future.

    I like Kimberly's comment about planning to eat a lot of donuts. Too bad they didn't make the team.

    I feel for BelbinAgosto.. they have done soo much for Ice Dance in their country but it was obvious the youngsters aren't that young anymore and have already surpassed them.

    I love, love, love their "Phantom of the Opera" programme. The difficulty was mind-blowing for me. The only thing wrong with a programme this complex, is that it increases the likelihood of making a mistake in the heat of competition. I find it a very exciting viewing experience. My hat's off to Igor and Marina for this tour de force, and major congratulations to Meryl and Charlie for carrying it off superbly.

    I also love their OD.

    Did anybody ever verify what the -1 deduction was for? An extended lift?

    Yes, it was an extended lift. The protocol doesn't say which one, but I think it was the one where Meryl balances on Charlies leg. That seemed a little long to me.

    BTW, if you caught the exhibition on NBC, Uncle Dick is a huge D&W fan and "feels privileged" to hage been there to see their FD.

    I thought Meryl took a teeny bit longer than usual to find her proper balance point on that one . It's just a wonderful program for them. I so admire the choreography Zoueva has done for all her couples..each piece unique ,and so obviously perfectly suited to the skaters. ..loved Ch/Z..and the La Strada piece for H-M/C make beautiful use of that music . 4CC could be a lot of fun.
