    Hmm. First time seeing Chock/Bates. Their skating styles go together but looks wise, I'm not so sure. He's a boy-next-door type, she looks like too much woman for him. Then the height difference. I miss Emily (with him). But no doubt, this team is good too.

    Hurtado/Diaz... her costume is a big mistake. He seems to be a far more elegant skater than she is - or is that just me?

    Oh my gosh. Is it possible for the costumes to get even worse? What the h*** did they put on his arm? A green and yellow duster? And is she going to change her skirt for every season? Autumn leaves, spring flowers, summer breezes, winter snowflakes. I can hardly wait. NOT.

    They seemed to be enjoying themselves, though - and they deserved to! Four years ago there was no Spanish dance program, they had to convince their fed that it was worth doing. It's been quite a learning curve for them and it's wonderful seeing them get noticed. I hope being around better teams and seeing how they work will help their development.

    I think he's probably better than her, yes, but she's a star. In that they kind of remind me of P/B; not that they're similar in most ways, but that's kind of the dynamic with Nathalie and Fabian.

    I'll take some aspirin. Buttercup, thanks for the info on the Spanish team. I'll wish them better costumes in the future!

    They're good, actually, but they look totally European from a distance. I don't know if it's their makeup or his Liberace shirt and her cutouts.

    The audience is tepid. Come on, folks - you're here, you might as well give them some love!

    (Maybe it's a fashion revolt?)
