    My new favorite ice dancers, Maia and Alex Shibutani in Jr. Nationals (Intermediate) in 2006 (11+14! Goodness. She is tiny. So is he!) Oh my gosh, they interview so well at their age! One thing though, since when does Nancy Kerrigan do Ice Dance commentary?

    EDITED: 2006 NOT 1994. Sorry probably was thinking about Nancy Kerrigan.

    OMG they were so cute! Davis/White in 1999- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPO7FjnohJk

    (slightly OT, but not, since it was still before they hit it big-- Charlie skating singles! At 2:49, he lands a cheated triple/triple- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6f3ow-4au8 )

    blue dog, That really does make you realize how very, very long they have been skating together! They were such little, little kids.
