    Piper is only a quasi Canadian or soon to be Canadian and she is too young to have hot flashes.....No idea - maybe her practice costume has gone to the wash!

    I too liked everything that I saw of Virtue/Moir -- including the instrumental music.
    My favorite moments:
    - Mind-boggling rotational lift.
    - Dramatic ending pose
    - Cool spin that they did during group time after all the individual program runthroughs.
    BTW, V/M were not in costume. Simple solid-black practice outfits.
    And in case anyone missed it yesterday, The Windsor Star had quotes from Moir that he is "100 per cent" and "not feeling any limitations."

    [Gilles is a lovely young woman who would look good in almost anything, but her practice outfit today was not to my taste either.]

    Looks like another great program for them. If there's a team that describes innovation in Ice Dance right now for me it's V/M. Some of those lifts are really unique. Was anyone else distracted by the percussion instruments in the score? I don't know if they need that through the adagio section for an ice dance rule or something, but it made the music really cheesy to me, and distracted from their skating. It is setting up to be another tight race between them and D/W!!

    Cute tweet from Kharis Ralph:

    First practice completed Tessa and Scott's new FD is brilliant (not like I was gawping at them instead of skating ;P).

    I love Makarova's SP from last year (she kept it)
    I liked her better as a blonde though...

    And nice ones! Better looking than Sotnikova's when she was a junior! I hope she lands that combo in the competition.
    I missed Liza, how did she skate? I saw a 3Lz-3T after the program but I don't know if it was rotated

    not sure if it was fully rotated couln'tsee clearly, I think she just arrived to the rink, her hair looked so messy, jumps were good except on that 2A she fell

    The lady who is skating to Rhapsody in Blue does not have any giraffe spots. I'm quite disappointed in her.
