Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir
I am surprised there is no dedicated thread for Tessa and Scott!
I'm starting one with this interview done in France during the TEB.
Jazz Dance, Rhumba, CD and OD. Talking with Virtue/Moir during the Trophée Bompard
This is great, SF, thanks. This will probably pick up a bit during Nats. There's not much going on right now. I just hope they're honing those programs to milk every PC and tek mark they can....... I'd also like it if they could put together a new program for the galas.
It is when "nothing is going on" for fans that lots are going on for the skaters, determining what they will put out when we see them again. Meanwhile maybe Scott can hone his bad boy image, Canadian style. Can't let Patrick take all the glory.
So next will be the Canadian Nationals, with the US Nationals and the Euro immediate after. For Tessa and Scott and other top Canadians there will be the 4CC after the Nationals, then Worlds. The event locations are easier for them than last year's.
Huge Scott Moir Fan
Scott is real man so he take all about sport too seriouse, but i am sure after the end of competition he relaxed and become our sweet nice-guy Scott
With that ISU mistake i am wonder - why no comments from V-M and SC?
Cant wait to see what they will change untill Nationals.
Here's a piece I posted on my blog last summer. Hope y'all like it! Been two years since Vancouver (already?!?!!) and we're halfway to Sochi. This makes me nostalgic.
On the Ice
^ This atricle states that an error was made at the Grand Prix final and Tessa and Scott should have placed first at the freedance but their overall result would not be affected.
I know, it sound whiny to call them victims, but putting aside judgments and colored use of the word, they are victims in the word's true meaning.

The Armenians were victims of genocide.

You are so right.
I can't wait for Nationals to see what else V/M changed in their program. When I have seen their Free for the first time I wasn't pleased, it seemed to me good but not very good. But their program grew up on me. Every time I watched it I noticed small changes and I liked it more and more.
I wish they win the Worlds and all the rest of this year' competitions.

a person who suffers from a destructive or injurious action or agency: a victim of an automobile accident.
a person who is deceived or cheated, as by his or her own emotions or ignorance, by the dishonesty of others, or by some impersonal agency: a victim of misplaced confidence; the victim of a swindler; a victim of an optical illusion.

Tessa and Scott are not goats sacrificed at the alter to propitiate the gods.
The official record book will show that they lost the free dance by a fraction of a point (with a footnote saying that they should have won by a point) on their way to winning the silver medal.
Their situation does not rise to the level of "victimhood."
