It seemed like it would be a picture perfect program in the first few seconds and then she fell.
Like subtlety in ice dancing

Wicked Yankee Girl
Dube & Wolfe
Total 154.79 into second
Lawrence & Swiegers
Music: Man in the Iron Mask, Nouvelle France
good speed to start
into 3tw and moved out of it well
3t's too far apart to really check whether both hit them
lift with really neat pos with Paige facing the ceiling
2a 2a sequence bad unison
sbs spins start flying camel
nice spin speed and pretty good unison
Really cool death spiral entrance
rats he loses his pivot and his knee goes down
pair spirals nice edges
nice but not super throw 3 Lp
Now Mask swordfight music
lift- good ice coverage for this lift
throw 3f small but done
lift you can tell he's tiring and the dismount is rough
pair spin. Man is he spent. Get oxygen.
Done and both are still alive. Good job!
I think that was (for me) hands down the best so far. They were visibly tired/slowing down by the end though. I will never get over how awesome that first lift is. Audience seemed into it, though maybe that was helped by the disaster skates before them.
Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
Well, they stepped up, for the most part. Good for them.
Two nitpicks: that is not only an ugly entrance to the DS, I think it was the ugliest DS I have ever seen. And they need to hit their ending pose with a bit of eclat. (Actually, given the history of the fight music, they need to 'attack' that whole section with eclat. They're pretty one-dimensional.)
^I noticed that look on her face in the lift too! Pairs is so scary.
Haha I felt this way too...

He looks grey in the K&C, time for oxygen, no kidding.
I remember seeing them at NHK one year and he fell during a lift, but she managed to land on her feet. Absolutely terrifying.

But there are so many to choose from in the COP era. I agree, though, that was pretty eye-blistering. She looked like one of the clocks from The Persistence of Memory.

Haha that made me laugh to. Do you get less deductions if you mess up in sync?
