Ice Dance: SD Thread
So, these start in less than three hours. I don't think I can stay away to hit refresh until V/M come on.....

All Canadian teams in one group; ditto the American teams. It shall be interesting to see just how close the top six are in the end.
That's the worst part. I don't like caffinated beverages.
Well, the worst part is I have to wake up approximately five hours after they perform anyway.
As for how they'll do: I think they'll be a solid second. Their natural talent means that we can still expect to see beautiful handling of music, lovely lifts superb construction. Their developed talent means that they won't be as far behind as some expect (hope?). Particularly in the Golden Waltz sections. They are the best CDers of their generation.
As for the free... I expect nothing less than a full bodied delight. If they're as ready as they say they are (and I think they are)..... I think Davis/White won't be able to take anything for granted (which they clearly aren't, but their fans are a little).

Yes, very curious to see what Virtue and Moir bring to the table.
I'm just glad that they are continuing on despite the Oly gold and her injury problems.
Good luck to everyone else as well!
I am personally very calm and composed. They (Tessa and Scott) with very few exceptions have always exceeded my expectations. I know they will do very well. And yes, I am sooo ready to see that free dance. They are clutch competitors. Always been. If Tessa is pain free indeed and they trained well, I am sure they are ready to take on the world. It will just be a question of how the judges will evaluate them.
