    I wonder what the story behind the photo is.

    I agree. Maybe they were just having fun. Doesn't Rudy teach Kristi's daughter.

    I think they are really going to do it! Look at that unison!

    They probably heard about John Coughlin's and Alexis Scimeka's injuries and are ready to step in if needed.

    More Kristi. Family reading hour.

    Sure why not and let's dream big. Johnny Weir and Evan as a pairs team. They can skate to Ebony and Ivory for their short. And we can add Dick Button and Peggy Fleming too. And why not try Morosov and every skater he has had a relationship in pairs or ice dancing too. That way he will like have so many chances for gold. But seriously Kristi and Rudy had nice lines.

    That is pair skating! And the height difference is perfect.

    They still look great together after all these years. Everything matching perfectly! What a pair they were.

    Wow SkaterBoy, what did you eat for lunch? That's fantasy on steroids. They both have always had beautiful lines so it's no surprise they could strike a pose like that. I imagine they were just messing around at the rink. Is one of Kristi's daughters skating? And is Kristi living back in the SF Bay Area? I know Brett retired so there really was no reason to stay in North Carolina probably.

    Actually, noskates, Bret played his last NHL season for the Anaheim Ducks, I believe -- anyway, he did not retire from the Carolina Hurricanes; he had already moved to another team. It was actually Mathman who alerted me to this, when I posted something about Kristi being in NC.

    Kristi's younger daughter Emma began skating last year. Her coach is ... Rudy Galindo.

    Here they are (coach and pupil) at the opening ceremonies of U.S. Nationals last year.

    Mathman, that's a great picture, too. So far, it looks like Kristi and Rudy have a good relationship after all these years.

    Oh my - I had totally forgotten about Rudi and Emma and I was there for the opening ceremonies. Clearly Kristi and Rudi are still friends or she wouldn't have entrusted him teaching her daughter.

    I really don't follow hockey so didn't know that Brett hadn't retired from the Canes. I'm still laughing at Mathman's pairings though!!!!

    ^ I wish I could take credit for Skater Boy's pairings.
