(B) Glad to read your appreciative comments for Max. With so much at stake, we understandably saw more of "intense" Max and less of the usual "bubbly" off-ice Max.
So I was very happy to see his wink after his SP, when he was receiving a standing ovation. I don't know whether he had spotted his loved ones in the crowd or whether he was trying to thank all the spectators in general. Anyway, I hope/believe that at least for that one little moment, he simply was enjoying the thrill of performing and competing -- and not thinking about scores or placements.
(C) Have not watched the Davis/White fluff yet. But now I must do so, for I too find it endearing that they and their families all are dog-lovers in a big way. Davis has tweeted photos of her family's Portuguese Water Dog (can't remember if they have more than one dog?) as well as lots of other dogs that Davis has befriended. And White/Belbin can't get enough of their dogs.

(E) Very pleased for Doug Razzano. And for Mirai -- b/c of her great programs, of course. And ... I'm sure I'm forgetting others ...
