Hi. I am aware that the posts here should be positive and so I did say “I’ll not go on about it…’” It may be that some who have been posting on this thread for a while have already spoken their minds and said their piece on a negative issue or two. For those of us who are newer, it’s hard, when you learn information that is upsetting or come upon an old video which seems to illustrate some injustice, not to refer to it or comment on it. But I will try to keep my reactions to myself!
And it is true, too, that we don’t know personally the people we comment on -- what has happened to them in their lives, what drives them, what disappointments they have endured, what obstacles they’ve overcome. We do often have their statements and interviews where we can draw some conclusions, but mostly we have just our subjective take on things and our powers of observation. Actually, if you think about it, we don’t really know Tatiana and Maxim personally either, yet we dare to offer our thoughts about their motivations, their plans, whatever.
And last but not least, in fact I DO think that Tatiana and Maxim love each other with equal fervor. But I have been deeply moved, and continue to be moved, by Max’s uninhibited show of affection for Tatiana. I think he’s an unusually honest example of the male species – so perhaps I am overly impressed by that bold honesty!

Eli, with the help of google translator (of course) I managed to read the whole interview and had a blast doing it. It was so interesting, everything they said, to see how their minds work and even if they're different they basically have the same opinions. I always knew Maxim has strong opinions but I see that Tanya has too.
This is a very small part of the interview, with the help of translator, which I found very cute:
Maxim: Yes, we have an addiction, a pathological thirst for communication with each other. We just can not live one without the other!
Tatiana: This we had right from day one.
Maxim: We don't have arguments. One says something, the other one listens.
Tatiana: We are so different, so we are very interested in each other.
Maxim: We immediately became friends somehow... I eat almost exclusively at Tanya. This delicious soup.
Nessie I couldn't agree more with you. I for one think we should be able to talk about everything we want in here as long as we're decent and don't insult people. I know there were times when I was not interested in something that was discussed and I simply ignored it, but whatever makes the posters happy.

Think I never agreed to anything more.

Yes, that! Just as we all here suspected!

I am sure she has. I think she is one iron lady. The emphasis being both on Iron and Lady. I have known several women like that and I admire them all greatly because without trying to usurp the male part in a partnership, they always manage to reach all their goals. The difference between them and others being that whatever they want is for the absolute mutual benefit of the couple and all their motivations are born out of love for the partner.

I also think that besides the natural desire to not broadcast their personal relationship and thus open the door to intimate and intrusive questions, she also doesn't want their exes to feel bad.

not sure if this has been posted here before: warm up before SP OG Sochi

Beautifully stated, Eli60056. I admire Max for his intelligence and remarkable honesty, and I admire Tanya for her strength, her modesty, and yes, her beauty. (and a ton of other flattering adjectives that can be assigned to both of them....)

Very briefly my opinion on beauty: I think classical beauty is for teenagers. I don't mean to be disparaging to the teens, but they tend to look on the surface of things. I once asked my husband about it and he said he would take charm over beauty any day, because charm comes from within and beauty is only skin deep. The more one matures (as our favorite couple has and will), the more deeply one looks below the surface. Then whatever is there comes out and shines (or not ) and that is what a person will have to live with for the long term. So Tania has so much light within that it can't help but shine through on the surface and the question of classical beauty becomes moot, because what she has is so much more. Conversely, Max's handsomeness, in his early days (from what I have seen) was quite dimmed by his being surly, resentful and generally unhappy. Just my opinion

Totally agree. Which reminds me:

The hot AUDI Red Book photos will be on display in the Red Square in Moscow from 1-30 of June together with some Audi cars. They will show 100 black and white photos of various Sochi Olympics champions. So if anyone lives in Moscow and wants to see skimpy dressed Tatiana and Maxim they know where to go
I also read that it's official that they'll go this year too for a training camp in Baselga de Pine, in Italy probably in July.
