    Jamie and David wore green when they won their world title... is it just an ice dance thing?

    Why expect superstition to be consistent. Beside, they had slips and troubles when they won their world title, but won anyway
    So Green always falls. Doesn't mean green always loses.

    Falling in ice dance almost always means LOSING.

    Good question. I looked around a bit for an answer, but could not find any definitive origin for the phrase.
    At least in modern times, green rooms are not really green [and who knows whether the reason is to prevent bad luck?].

    [In the USA, "green cards" documenting official status for resident aliens once were truly green, but I think that the actual cards now are blue -- sorry, I digress.]

    LOL, had not occurred to me that some bad luck did befall her, in the form of the power outage. Tessa managed to look "stunning" - to use Scott's adjective - all the same.
    She is wearing a sort of olive-y green blouse in the off-ice photo at the following link. I think it was taken back at the 2011 HP Camp, although SC recently tweeted it to promote 2012 Skate Canada International. http://twitter.com/SkateCanada/statu.../photo/1/large

    Hmmmmmm. It could be!!! If it is, I wonder if they're going with Disney or the Ballet La Esmeralda with music by Cesare Pugni. You can watch the Bolshoi's 2009 reconstruction of the ballet here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_uUf...eature=related

    Just hearing the overture of the ballet it's VERY Meryl and Charlie to me. Classic, sweeping and romantic. Where Die Fledermaus was the essence of those things in a very sophisticated, elegant and presentational yet somehow dreamy package, La Esmeralda would be the classic, sweeping, romantic, but earthier and more passionate.

    THEN AGAIN, could it be the French version of the ballet from the 60s with music by Maurice Jarre??? I doubt it, but you never know. That score is more at home with the more experimental work of Prokofiev and Stravinsky.

    We'll see. The aesthetics of Hunchback really suit Meryl and Charlie to me so if that's what's going down I'm excited!

    Actually they both have very nice posture. Their leglines used to sometimes be a problem, but not so much any more.

    I really hope they use music from the Notre Dame de Paris version. I think Johnny Weir used that music some years ago and I fell in love with it.

    they always pick perfect music for them unlike virtue and moir. I am not sure if v and m do themselves any favour by challenging themselves. Davis and White have done very well just skating to their strengths. One thing that bothers me a little about D and W is they are not as versatile as V and M and I am not sure if they can evoke the same kind of romance and passion of Bsquared or even Navka and kostomorov or Klimova and Pomarenko, Krylova andOksiankov et al. Lovely skaters but they do not have that pure fiery passion which is why maybe some passionate tangos and such are not their forte.

    But D/W HAVE pushed themselves out of their comfort zone on occasion (specifically the Tango FD they did a few years ago) which shifted their comfort zone out a bit from where it was

    In fact, every year they publish exactly what they are trying to improve before the season-it's one thing that makes following their development entertaining for me, as a fan.

    It may not be what you would chose for them to improve, but they are always doing it. Last year they were trying to show more connection. Whether you think that was successful or not, I can tell you that every place they performed Die Fledermaus, they got at least a partial standing ovation (Canada, GPF, and I think 4CCs) and a full standing O everywhere else (Nice, WTT, Skate America of course, and Cup of Russia).

    They sure succeeded for me! In my estimation, that piece is one of the great dance programs ever. I hope I can wean myself off of it in time to get excited over their new programs, but that one was stupendous.
