And there are just no words to describe the beauty and perfection that is Scott and Tessa. That may seem like bad grammar, but really, they skate as one. Simply incredible. 70.15 for a total of 114.13
Tessa and Scott...WOWOHWOW!!! So much better than SC, but I still say the ice was waaay too hard that day and more to blame for that OD performance, and love the new dress on Tessa!! If they can skate like that in ...
There's 0,02 points between Weaver/Poje and Crone/Poirer. Sunday afternoon is going to be very interesting!!
Ralph/Hill were way too good. Shame they were below par in the CD because that was just spectacular and they have what it takes to be major contenders.
Virtue/Moir are so fast, sharp and synchronous. Even with quite a few of the other teams being competitive internationally, they're just on a completely different level.

And Tessa and Scott just showed why they are Olympic Gold medal favorites! Awesome skate!!!!
Tessa and Scott were phenomenal.
The inflated scoring really bothers me though. It almost seems disrespectful. I mean, a skater (or team) goes out an does an incredible performance, but they can't really celebrate their score because, although the placement is well deserved, the marks aren't.
I want Tessa to go back to the black dress. The red is too distracting - distracts attention from Scott, who I think should be highlighted equally in this particular dance.
(Joannie, you should go back to the black dress too! )
Fabulous twizzle sequence! and they nailed the ending. nice.
Does anyone know if this will be rebroadcast on the web? I'd love to see Ralph/Hill....
Love V/M's skating! The dress is so much better now. They were just perfect!
Love Katelyne and Andrew's OD too!
Not sure, but hopefully, at the very least, it will be up on you tube.

On cloud nine and refusing to come down!
That's why I can never trust Nationals scoring. You really can't tell whether it is an accurate reflection of the skaters or not. (Oddly, J.Nats somehow veers between inflation and super DGing). At any rate, inflation of Canadians isn't as bad as that of the Russian Nats. I can't complain.

Go V/M, R/H and W/P!

This lift from Weaver and Poje is called The Circumcision:
Virtue and Moir are skating as Spanish vampires, right?
Constable , Costume Police
Tessa and Scott were mesmerizing .The red skirt is gorgeous (seems to be slightly shot with black). I don't understand how anyone can be distracted from Scott. I find I have to rip my eyes from one to the other every time I watch them.
I can't get too upset by inflated scores , here. Didn't WP and CP (and others ) have personal bests as well ? Inflation aside, that is the best we've seen them skate this season..But really , Tessa and Scott are at another level.
I found the whole 'Spanish Section' pretty thrilling. WP have come up another notch ,and I think her costume may have been slightly toned down. ( Though with their figures, they can carry more costume than many others ,so it wasn't a major problem to begin with .)
Vanessa's costume was a major improvement. ( Oh please, let's see a similar transformation for the FS). Their expression has really been improved. Honestly, I think the judges must have had a heck of a job to try to decide between those two teams. I just hope none of them had to resort to flipping a coin. I think either team will do us proud. It's a shame there's only a spot for one.
