    Would not surprise me if there was some "funny business", there usually is during the "big ones" that benefits V/M.

    I was not expecting Chock and Bates to bump off the Shibutanis for the silver medal. I thought they would get bronze. WOW!

    The Notre Dame de Paris program > Carmen in my opinion. V and M's Virtue and moir program seems labored although I will say the lifts are really innovative for Carmen.

    I don't care what anyone says that was a fabulous connection and maybe the best acting I've ever seen from a skater.
    I want to watch it again!

    Thanks, Chemistry. I will keep an eye out for the Gamelin twins(!) next year.
    ETA: Their connection on and off the ice must be quite special.

    Chock's dress is very evocative of the Dr. Zhivago storyline. The collar and long sleeves make perfect sense.

    Bates and Chock have no connection at all. Maybe having Igor as there coach paid off. Politiking at it's worst.

    It may make sense, but it doesn't look good. The collar looks like it was haphazardly cut out of felt and safety pinned on there. The bodice is not flattering to her body type.

    Darn, the Shibutanis received another deduction for an extended lift.

    And Virtue/Moir lost two points at Canadian Nats for the same reason.

    [Wonder if Shpilband would have helped prevent those mistakes???]

    Soo love D/W. They are the only ones who's placements I care for in the U.S. so I'm happy they brought it like that because I'm just so impressed with all the dance teams that the U.S. has. All those deep edges were just really great to see.

    Well the Shibutanis dont have much connection either. Both teams are similar, technically very strong and artistically blah. Hubbel & Donahue have a much better connection on the ice but arent yet as technically strong as those other two teams.

    One thing is for sure US Ice Dancing is in good hands when D/W retire. Some good Junior teams coming up to.

    Davis and White are looking so strong. Crossing my fingers that they can last another quad.
