Music good, but I don't think name will stick, Olympia. I am sure they will be in great form by Olympics, and it may be that they become sentimental favorite. Technically, Charlie/Meryl are incredible, and they have two good programs. I think they should win. Also, I no longer think Moir/Virtue are a shoe in for silver. A lot of great dance teams around, but If they do well, I can't see less than silver, unless they make a big mistake. But One does recall the T&D comeback. They were shocked to get bronze. People who knew ID seemed to find that fair.
I hope that Charlie and Meryl have the skates of their lives. There is something so beautiful about Mahler. But I have to say, their on ice connection is said to be acting. But if it is, they are Oscar worthy. I was watching them on youtube. It just seems they should be together. It is like Gordeeva/Grinkov. I wonder is it okay to ask-is Scott gay? I just want to see this couple together. Will they admit in 30 years they were lovers? Finally T&D did.
When one watches Marlie, one sees so much less connection, but I recall Charlie is with Tanith? What a striking blond pair that is.
I think Voir play this coy "in love" look for all it is worth. Technically, they have fallen behind, and that is obvious to me, someone who really knows nothing about ice dance rules, or lift difficulty. I think if you are being un-nationalistic (Canadians love Candians!) you have to admit they have been surpassed by their American friends. I cannot imagine how tense it is around that rink in Canton, but good for them -I think they are honestly going to be happy with placements if all skate well. I hope Marlie do what they do beautifully. They deserve gold.
When was Tessa ultra thin?
