what a quote! I think I'm going to have to faint now.... And from Hemingway no less ! (though he married 3 times....)
When I streamed it my internet was like "HAHAHAHAH, No" I was able to every single skater except for V/T.
And how sweet is it that he caresses her again in the "Frozen" Opening number
It makes me wonder if it is in fact Max who is a little bit more in love with T than the other way around. I always think it is the woman in a relationship who is more in love, but we have a lot of evidence here and in many other places that it is Max who's just head over heels in love with our lovely TAti. I mean I'm sure she's crazy about him, but I sense an abundance of feelings from Max. As I think SkateFan 02 once said, Max has been through a lot and he knows what he's got now. He waited and now it is his. And he perhaps can't even believe he's found such happiness sometimes...
Just a thought on all the tours that Max and Tanya have been involved in, remember they are several years older than the other Russian skaters (even Ksenia and Fedor who are in their early twenties) and the I imagine that Adelina, Yulia and Maksim Kovtun are all supported by their families for the most part. This may be the only way for Max and Tanya to get an income for the next several months while they are traveling to New York for training/choreography and training in Russia. Plus with the Grand Prix tours starting in the last 10 weeks of the year they'll need a bit of money to support themselves before then.
Edit: also I think it's sweet that Max liked the Ernest Hemmingway quote. It's like a silent confirmation of his love... awwww
And I'm ready for vacation pictures!!!!
Max is just sneaky like that. I think when it comes to declaring his love he gets very shy, especially when asked about it publicly. So often I see him turn to Tanya for help during interviews, so maybe it's easier for him just to like pics on IG and hope we notice.
- If they don't upload cute-vacation-pics I'm gonna ban them from next season.
Yes they are paid by Russian federation, soo shows is just more income than just salaryDon't they get a permanent salary from the government?
As for money from shows it's very understandable, even if they get paid for trainings and coaches by the federation they must think about the future and get some money now when they're on top of the world. Hopefully they'll buy a nice house.
And regarding how much they love each other I say they both do it at the same level, sometimes she's the one who looks more into him and sometimes he's the one more into her. I still can't forget their very public Closing ceremony kiss.
I noticed that they changed their bows to the crowd (don't know how to call it. lol). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW7kTPW5PhY
It's kinda similar to how Max used to do it with Maria after their programs, when she skates forwards and bows down.
With Maria it looked as if she wanted to be the star of the show, always in the spotlights. You can clearly see Maxim's beaming face in this video- it's like he's presenting his lady with such pride and admiration.
I came across these over Easter, but keep forgetting to post them, so sorry changing the subject rather abruptly:
2012 AOI in Shanghai with Li Yuchun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFnrF_-GUgc (15:15 and 1:11:21)
2011 AOI Shanghai with Lang Lang http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/RCw3SaGKP5w/ (this takes FOREVER to load. I had to give it 10-15 minutes before it started reacting)
Anyway, I agree with annafer they're probably doing all these shows to get some spare cash and save up for the future (and so that Max can buy Tanya a nice ring if he hasn't done so already)
Wait a minute.... JCSkizzle. Did you say something about Max and Tanya coming to NEW YORK, SHE SCREAMED???!!!
GOOD HEAVENS! I certainly will. I even know how to get there.... (I made one trip to watch Elena Bereshnaya and Anton Sikharudlize practice.....) Do you know WHEN they might be coming? HOW are you able to learn these amazing bits of information? I'm flabbergasted.
