    wow, arrecha!! my grandparents used to listen to tango every day - this took me back. I think the Canadians have chosen great vehicles - I think they will medal despite the Russian push at Sochi.

    The one thing I don't like about W/P's FD is the vocals in the music.

    BUT - their lifts always seem mediocre compared to the other top dance partnerships - why?

    Well that flew by fast. I love that rotational lift towards the end where she is in a stag position wrapping her hands around his neck.

    Kaitlyn is very tall, I imagine it's probably difficult to do some of the more acrobatic lifts that D/W and V/M do.

    Weaver/Poje (CAN)

    FD: 51.76+53.21=104.88 (PB), 175.23 (PB), and in 1st (out of 7)

    They're of course happy with the scores. Olympic bronze candidates for sure

    I know what you mean. At first I was trying to make something of the vocals. But as the program developed, the skaters worked the attention back on themselves. Masterful performance.

    V/M's program has grown on me since I last saw it. I feel I'm getting what they are trying to convey better now. I still prefer D/W's FD at this time.

    V/M have some great lifts!! Their costumes should change again - do not like the generic burgundy with black on Moir and I think the pink color is beautiful on Tessa but it looks like a slip. I think that it feels so empty, there is something missing.. I don't know..

    Very nice skate by Virtue/Moir, lifts and twizzles much better than at Finlandia and the SD. Still needs more polishing to get the level of cleanliness of D/W.

    Don't like the salute at the end - what does that symbolize? Isn't the FD suppose to be presenting the seasons of relationship between a (seasoned) woman and man? More looked like a young couple dancing before doing the national song at high school...

    V/M's FD looks like a lesser version of Mahler, it's pretty to look at, but I can't help thinking that they did this much better in 2010. I preferred W/P.
