The problem with Russia's team is Bush and Kovtun. I/K are better dancers than they are singles skaters. B/S aren't that technically superior anyway! Maybe B/S would have done better but is it likely they would have been greater than 5th? Really doubtful so it's a wash. Bush and Kovtun was a big message of "Who Cares?" Don't want to come off as too negative against Bush and Kovtun but they are lesser than Italy's number 2 man! So they are just not at the level of really anyone else at the WTT. And Really no Russian dance team is comparable to 1 2 3 or 4.
Scott was clearly upset when he saw V/M's score. I just wish he weren't so open with his attitudes. He just comes off as a swell-headed jerk.
This was a TEAM event. It's a GOOD thing to finish first OR second.
Well, after the disastrous Worlds, I guess finishing 2nd would indeed be GOOD considering the entire Team USA except 3 little girls disappeared after Adam Rippon's skate, it says a lot about the actual team spirit I think.This was a TEAM event. It's a GOOD thing to finish first OR second.
V/M scored three tens. Not as many as D/W, of course. Glad that C/L scored so well.
I think next year we might see V/M skipping this competition.
True. I am too old to stay up all night 2 nights in a row and see straight at the same time. There were 3 tens for Tessa and Scott and 17 for Meryl & Charlie.

BTW how kool was it that Team France did a pyramid behind The Pharaoah and His Mummy.
France for Team Spirit Award.

If Scott said what i think he said that's a slap in the face to the Japanese who put on this event. I get that' he's outspoken and i'm fine with that but he insulted the Japanese with his bratty statement. Scott seems to be a sore loser.
Are you quite sure that's what he said. I'm not.
