I'm excited for this I was favorably impressed yesterday!
Saw both Vise/Baldwin and Davis/Ladwig in Salt Lake at the senior B. It will be interesting to see if they have made progress since then. Vise/Baldwin had a good free program there.
I hadn't seen Vise/Baldwin before. They seemed slow and deliberate.
He definitely looks like his brother.
I think they have a lot of room for improvement, but also a lot of potential. I enjoyed their side by side spins actually- they were slightly distracting to me because I'm not used to it but I admire them for trying different things.

Time to Say Goodbye
3S - he doubled
3FTh - hard fall
It was a loop - very nice. They do skate better in the free program. They don't go for all the difficulty but they skate better. This time even the opposite spins and jumps looked fine.
Score: 94.74, total 141.21 and into 1st
Lindsay DAVIS / Mark LADWIG (USA
Music: Angel and Demons (soundtrack) by Hans Zimmer
3S+2T - he stepouts, she doesn't do combo
3FTw - low catch
3LoTh - 2foot, stepout
2A - she has hand down
PCoSp - shaky, he puts foot down on change
FCCoSp - a bit far from each other, unison off
Li - take-off fails, no lift
Li - a bit shaky
Lots of mistakes, but they're a new pair
Poor Davis & Ladwig. That was rather awful.
Davis/Ladwig reminded me a lot of how they did in Salt Lake. A lot of things have not jelled yet. Not sure if they have a future or not. I think Vise/Baldwin will once again be ahead of them
