    Do you think Megan cheering in the air makes it harder for Eric to lift her?

    Didn't look like it was giving him trouble But wow, that was an amazing event, the top two were spectacular. One of the most enjoyable pairs events I've ever watched, especially since it was the one discipline that featured a close competition for the top spot.

    She did it last year too and she was upside down during it (and fuzzled to the entry to the pair spin afterwards a little). It's even funnier when you remember that they missed the lift at the GPF. And that lift, with the reverse rotation beginning, is VERY hard.

    It really was incredible. I preferred MT/M's LP — so beautiful — it had that electric performance quality to it whereas D/R looked a bit tense and as if they were holding back just a bit. But I can't argue with D/R's technical content, and that's where they won it, with MT/M taking the PCS.

    What I'd really love to see is both teams put out those quality performances again at worlds. If they can skate like that they will stack up well internationally.

    It really did, didn't it? They had the audience enthralled right from the getgo. I don't recall seeing any pair get a reaction like that since Jamie and David.

    Sure was exciting to see both pair teams deliver such wonderful performances tonight. At first when I saw M-T/M's music was "Queen medely" I thought "oh no" not another Queen selection. Talk about overdone. However, they skated with such magic and electricity and let the music just take them, it was outstanding. I wondered how D&R were going to top them, but they skated perfectly and their lifts and jumps were spot on.

    Duhamel/Radford were a little lucky with this one.

    3twist wasn't fully rotated, the catch was a little crashy and I think she touched the ice with free foot coming down as well. I'd give it -2, probably.

    First lift had a double-footed landing (by him).

    Second lift was a little laboured in the air and they are not even pretending to have the landing on one foot (although given the difficult landing maybe they can get away with it?).

    Salchow take-off was a little bit off-synch.

    Both throws were telegraphed (surprising given in the SP the throw lutz was off transitions).

    Final lift again a little laboured (Eric's not a great lifter, it's their Achilles heel IMO).

    Choreography is good but they did seem tense and didn't sell it as well as they could have. Meagan's posture is still really jarring.

    So much for nitpicking. ;P Of course, they did skate really well but if the judges have picked on the above things, they'd probably have to settle for the silver.

    So yeah a number of little things were off. Still, you can't argue with the jumps and they've come really far on the second mark since they've started skating together.

    Moore-Towers/Moscovitch - pretty strong skate, but I have no problem with D/R winning gold.

    Back to D/R: I think the judges have completely forgot about the one-foot landing from the man on the lifts, to be honest.

    Great focus and attack from M-T/M but I think that their lack of polish is even more jarring. Posture and lines really aren't good. Technically it was really solid, though.

    I don't think they've ever really cared about it to begin with.

    Same with the twists.
