    Actually, no. It's the original Quickstep, not the Finnstep.

    The Russians will find a way. Maybe they will interpret it as a sign that the US has taken over the world so they are in mourning while being forced to do this terrible dance?

    The original quickstep for Olympics would be a sad thing. It's a boring dance, relatively speaking.

    FINNSTEP for the Olympic year!!! We :wuzrobbed: of it in 2010; let's have it this time.

    Yeah, I got that. Care to reason why other than declaring it a conspiracy?

    I've heard it will be polka, with march & waltz, similar to the 2003 Grand Ball OD. However, the official details won't be out till summer, if things operate at their usual (lack of ) speed.

    It's been proposed that penalties for music issues will be higher in the SD next year. Again, we won't know until after the Congress in Kuala Lampur.

    Polka? Really? I may have to defenestrate myself. And after seeing an actual clip of the American Polka pattern, my god, it looks as silly as it sounds. Why are they doing this to me?

    I love the rumba and latin rhythms this season. But soon it will be all over. There isn't an emoticon on golden skate strong enough to express my dismay.

    Ah...just relax and find your inner polkabration spirit.

    A few pierogis, some sauerkraut, several beers, and you should be ready to go with the polka flow.

    It's fun.

    Not everything needs to be drama & angst!

    It's a fun dance. I just hope everybody doesn't think it has to be a hoe-down.My sister was hoping she'd win the lottery and be able to open a suspenders factory before YP was picked...I guess if the Universe sent her a lottery win at this late date , she'd still take it , though.

    Mmmm. Not that fond of beer , can I substitute schnapps ?

    I don't care for drama and angst in skating, either. Although there's plenty of that in my heart when I heard that the Yankee Polka would be the pattern next season. There are a only a few genres of music I can't stand, why did they have to pick one of them?

    However, if one team skates to this piece of music while costumed as the angry fembots from the video, I rescind all my previous sturm and drang.

    Perhaps dressed as the priest and The Toad.
