    Very impressive score in the SD. They train with McNamara/Carpenter at WISA, right? They seem to know what they are doing where the levels are concerned!

    Exactly! They train at the same rink and have the same coach. So there must be something right going on in that rink. They might not even have to move out of Rockville. Detroit isn't the only option.

    And plus it makes me excited that they (Plus McNamara/Carpenter) live in the DC metropolitan area. Cause I do as well. Sorry but when a skater(s) you like are from a metropolitan area you live in or same area, it makes you feel excited.

    They are my favorite team and I am thrilled to see them do so well this year. Their short dance in Zagreb is a new personal best by 7 points, and I think the highest SD score in all the JGPs so far this year! Can't wait until Free dance!

    Can't wait to see them skate this week in Barcelona! Team USA is well represented, but especially in ice dance this year.
