    I believe that D/W are absolutely, positively superior in every way to all the teams that have skated in the GP this season, it would be a travesty for them not to be crowned OGM.

    Just one thing about B/S costumes:
    Last year I thought "finally, they have some good costumes": it didn't take them a lot of time to prove me wrong

    No, it isn't: WTT 2012, they received a 10 for IN there...

    Still, you don't win the Olympic gold medal in the Grand Prix. They still have to show up at Sochi and do it all over again.

    What would be travesties are disregarding the SD and FD performances in Sochi of any ice dancers -- and basing the Olympic placements on skates other than on those two days in February.
    I believe that Davis/White would feel the same.

    Except D/W are only going to be better and the other teams will only have four months to catch them.

    Absolutely - however - their programs are amazing in every regard and their execution will get greater and greater and greater. They should win.

    Absolutely true

    Even more true. And I do bet D&W feel the same.

    Every skater should have such loyal fans.

    Me, I'm tired of the same old awesome perfection from the top two teams. I am going to root for Cappellini and Lanotte. .

    I am a McKayla Maroney fan. As the London Olympics approached, I hoped and believed that she would win the gold medal for vault.
    Lo and behold, Maroney's performance on the day of the event did not deserve the gold.
    Maroney was not -- and should not have been -- "crowned" (to use your word, sweetskates) with the Olympic gold.

    I am no gymnastics expert, but I would add that my understanding is that Maroney's pre-London dominance in vault was universally recognized -- unlike the relative position of Davis/White, which is the subject of vigorous debate (no matter how strong your individual opinion happens to be).

    I am not wishing for anyone to underperform in Sochi. Just sayin' that everyone will be skating under the pressure of the Olympics, on slippery ice, etc.

    I feel you MM. I appreciate both teams, but I find myself cheering for other teams. Even though most write them off, the Shibsibs can count on me to be in their fan stable. Also love Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt.

    Outside the U.S. I like Cappellini/Lanotte and Weaver/Poje. Mr. P loves W/P and always requests that I put the "I am sick" FD on YouTube. In fact, I have W/P to thank for my husband coming to appreciate Ice Dance. He's actually excited to see Ice Dance the most out of disciplines when we go to Nationals in a few months!

    Looking forward to watching the rest of the FD here. Had a 5k this morning so went to bed early.

    ***

    ETA: Just watched the top 3 FD.

    P/B: That was so lovely. I was captivated for four minutes. This program brings the best of their whimsical style. I really did not care for the Rolling Stones FD last season, so I was very pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this FD. I think it's their best FD since they did Chaplin in 2011. (The Mummy was OK, and I know they won bronze with it, but still liked Chaplin better). Among the bronze medal contenders, this FD, along with W/P's is tops.

    B/S: Oh my. Just when they gained all my respect last season, they had to turn in this FD. I saw it in Ice Star Minsk and it seemed OK, but after viewing it a second time, I can confirm I don't care for it. I'm sure it will improve as the season goes, but all I could think of was this was Faust 2.0: Dark minor key, black costumes. And Bobrova's posture is all slouchy again! Zhulin, WTH?!

    C/B: Much better than Finlandia. I really enjoyed it! Very sharp. Still don't like the music cuts, but it was not as distracting to me as Finlandia. And that opening lift Madison was so captivating that I didn't think too much about the fact that the pink dress still doesn't make much sense for a Les Miserables program. I do think it's still a bit frantic in places, but otherwise, they should be happy with their performance here.
