    A little off-subject: I also watched last night some of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Pairs Competition. Saw some skaters I’d never heard of or heard little of. Why? Because US television coverage of the Olympics is often so jingoistic. They waste time broadcasting all sorts of debatable and obscure sports like curling, or biathlon (shooting at targets while skiing!), but with figure skating, they only show you the favorites (if you’re lucky) and anyone American – even if they are not at the highest level. You could miss a great 4th or 5th place performance if the person (or couple) isn’t American. It bugs me. I want to see the best skating; it’s not important what country a skater is from. Of course, at Sochi in 2014, the Russian skaters were so accomplished that the program producers had no choice but to pay close attention.
    Don't worry, you are not alone Our TV showed the Olympics in a similar way, it was so annoying. One competition on different channels, more advertisements than skating and the worse of all - they showed 1st group, than a few minutes sledging (I think it is so called in English, isn't it?), a few minutes of speed skating (because we had a gold medal in this discpiline, they were repeating it constantly), a few minutes of another disciplines, a documentary about lack of speed skating track in Poland, some journalists' talks about lack of speed skating track in Poland, and coming back to show the last group. Exhibiton was the worst of all - journalists were sitting in the studio - behind them big screen which showed gala - and talking about LACK OF SPEED SKATING TRACK IN POLAND. Guys, I got it, we don't have any speed skating track, but let me watch gala! They showed it when Yuna Kim ws performing. An exhibition of my life, really

    Whoa – that sounds as bad as our coverage! I was away so I had set my television to record the Olympic gala. Obviously there was one particular pair whose performance I wanted to be sure to catch. Since V and T were the biggest stars of the Sochi Olympics, it was not surprising that they were scheduled to skate last which I kind of expected. The producers were so dumb, they allowed the gala to end a precise hour but the most important champions hadn’t even skated yet! I bet the knuckleheads in the studio didn’t even notice their stupidity. I was so furious I was ready to throw the television out the window! If it had been Shaun White skateboarding, they probably would have let the program go over a few minutes! But the produces were so uninformed that they didn’t realize WHO they cut out of the program. Incompetent dopes! Actually your story is at least funny. Mine is just idiotic.

    Nessie, I think, Tanya looks beautiful,I don't like Maxim's t-shirt. V/T went to the fashion house of classic suit on Wednesday, then they went to the party which was held by that fashion house. maxim went to place, where his dad use to live yesterday, but I am not sure, whether Tanya went with him or not.

    Hmm. Interesting, re where Max's father used to live.
    and Yes Max's shirt looks funny -- sort of too long, like a dress. I like to see his hair instead of baseball caps all the time. He sure likes those baseball caps! But Tati looks fantastic. This dress and red pants get my vote for the best clothes she's worn.

    I agree with you, Tanya looks fabulous. I think, she has got a nice style, I like it.I am not sure about Maxim style sometimes.
    I know, Maxim brought a house for his dad on Pskov region, that's where Maxim went there on Thursday, because, he did put a picture on his instagram saying it's Dad's house. I don't think, that trip was easy for him.

    Oh, my. It's so valuable that you're telling us some of these critical details. I had no idea these beautiful shots of countryside or small-town life in Russia that Max recently posted had to do with his father. It’s very moving. I have thought that’s why Max wept and was so overcome at the end of their JCSS program at the Olympics. Maxim achieved what his father wished for him. He fulfilled not only his own (and Tanya’s) dream, but his father’s dream and hopes as well.
    I’m afraid I often miss the point of many of Max’s Instagram postings since I don’t know Russian. There are obviously many more subtleties going on than I realize…

    I remember, Tanya saying that Maxim and his Dad were very close he always supported them. Maxim did achieve, what his Dad wanted. I have noticed, both Tanya and her sister, Olga, liked th picture of the house.
    Also, it looks like, that girl, who was swearing at Tanya on Maxim's instagram, has left comment on Tanya's instagram under picture Max with Dexter. I think, V/T need to ban her completely from their instagram.

    Man, that girl just won't quit. She's been reported for abusive content before; I'm not sure why Instagram won't ban her account.

    This girl just needs to get a life and her account should be banned!
    It looks like Maxim has taken ALSicebucketchallenge http://instagram.com/p/sEq2yGuVcG/?modal=true, but poor Dexter!
    Tanya has done ice bucket challenge as well http://instagram.com/p/sE1T_gj_pf/?modal=true, it's funny, because, she says, Maxim is going to do it for her as a real gentleman!

    Cute
    But yeah, poor Dexter!
    So many people are doing this now, but some seem to forget the serious background of this idea.
    Isn't the rule that once you're nominated you have 24 hours to do it and give a little amount, and if you DON'T do it, you have to donate? Not sure but many people here view it as: Ice bucket or donation.
    I know that this ice bucket stuff is raising awareness and gets peoples attention, but I think a donation would be way more helpful.
    Not saying this in regards of Tanya&Max, these videos are super cute
    But I just had to say this, not only about Tanya and Max, but about everybody- me and my friends did it as well, but we donated sth anyway, which I think should be the main point of this hype.

    here in spain it was announced that even though many stars did the challenge the association didn't get donations. tati and max also encouraged people to donate in their messages which is the point of this challenge. their videos are so adorable, poor dexter though, he tried to run from max's arms.

    SO adorable and yes, super cute! They are totally endearing. I don't know what it is about them, but I seem to adore everything they do. Utterly adorable and lovable.

    She's wearing Max's T shirt. I thought she was wearing pyjamas haha

    I refuse to forgive Max for that green crocs though...

    Tanya's challenge (with Max's dear help) was funny as hell, but I still think the BEST ONE goes to Scott Moir. Seriously, this guy is MENTAL.
