    Tanith/Ben will have the toughest job, skating after the home team.

    Is there a detailed starting order with precise starting times? I couldn't find one, but it's really helpful for us Europeans to know when we have to get up!

    LOL at your nicknames for some of the dancers!!

    All things being equal, Heaven forbid DomShabs placing ahead of V/M.

    GO GO TEAM SHPILBAND! Also sending good vibes Baby Italians, DelSchoes, Kerrs and B/A!

    Go everyone! And may the placements fall where they deserve to be. (Which is hopefully with V/M and D/W on the podium).

    ITA. I think I can predict that their free skate will seem flat compared to Virtue/Moir. If B/A couldn't get a great response from the crowd at US National's, I just don't see how their program will get a huge response in Canada. No standing ovation for them.

    I am really saddened that it has come to this for such a talented pair. I was thinking over the past 4 years how Belbin/Agosto just haven't lived up to their potential. They should have changed their coach right after the Olympics. It just seems like they coasted for 2 years after Torino. Then, they changed coaches in 2008 and it was just too late. It makes me so angry that they basically became the Christopher Bowman of ice dancing. A few world medals here and there, stumbles that took them out of world podium contention, abrupt changes in coaching that took them nowhere. I just remember Klimonova/Pomerenko changed their coaches when they realized that their programs weren't working before it was too late. They made drastic changes and they had an unforgettable skate in 1992.

    I began thinking of Platov as a coach they could have gone to after the 2006 Olympics. I think he's still in New Jersey and from what I understand Pasha and him were considered pretty good technicians. He could have helped B/A on the technical side, while not creating crappy programs like Linichuk. He doesn't have any elite skaters, so B/A could have been his #1 focus. Thus he could have politicked the judges for them exclusively.

    It just makes me so sick to think of what could have been for Tanith and Ben...

    That way, the judges will know how many points DomShabs have to get to pass D/W for silver.

    I don't think Tanith and Ben changed TOO LATE, they just picked the wrong coach period.

    I'm not sure if they picked the wrong coach, but once Dom/Shab moved over, then they were screwed.

    Which coach do you think B/A should have chosen? That is still here in the US, I mean? I've been trying to think about it ever since the original dance.

    ETA: I think they should have gone to another coach earlier b/c their technique didn't improve the two years after Torino. It would have taken a LOT of work to get them to pass the Bulgarians and French in those years, but I think it was doable. Such wasted talent.

    I consider their free dance as a dirge of their careers. A funeral if you will. Not the way I would have wanted for them to exit from the amateur stage.
