I think someone sexy like Madison Hubbell is limited in what programs she can do because she's skating with a sibling. She could do much hotter dances if her partner wasn't a sibling. Same goes for most of these girls skating with their brother.

I'm not sure the Hubbells are limited so much by their sibling-hood, as by the way they skate. Saw them live last fall and I'm sorry, but they skate like they are wearing lead boots and pushing through quicksand. Both SD and FD so it didn't seem to be strictly a program-related thing. It was quite noticeable compared to other teams, even some much less experienced. Not sure how one fixes this.

Incidentally it's the Sibutani fan page - you can read excerpts of their review articles as well as pictures, if you like. Enjoy.

I hope the SDs will make it to YouTube soon. I've only been able to see the NBC coverage and was pretty disappointed to only see D/W's SD.

Not to worry, Colleen. If you can't be obsessed by something as glorious as skating, life has a lot less meaning.
And I can't wait for the YouTube editions of everything either.
