There was also an article which reported that Samuelson and Poirier considered skating together but there may have been issues with her release from the USFS.

    In the end we got the present two teams, and I think G&P and C&B made the right decision in who they partnered with. C&B have moved up the standings pretty fast and overtaken The Shibutanis and Hubbell & Donohue. And after a sub-standard result by Gilles & Poirier at last year's Worlds, they made a big leap in the standings this year. Key to G&P's success has been how well their personalities have clicked together. Piper's former coach Patti Gotwein has said that she thinks Piper & Paul are perfect for each other, and I think I agree with her so far.

    Who are you really??? Paul? Piper? Paul's father/brother/uncle/cousin? Mrs. Gilles? Carol???

    Your "shilling" for Paul is

    Nope. Not connected to them at all. Have talked to them a couple times and that's it. And I'm not shilling for any skater any more than anyone else does on this board.

    I was actually responding to 'pharmtech1' and 'WeakAnkles' who were predicting much higher results for G&P than I am.

    Btw, as you can see from my handle, I've been registered here since Mar 2004 - when Piper & Paul were 12 years old.

    You can hear it in this old rap hit from 1992. It was one of THE biggest hits of that year in the US and was the #1 hit for nearly two months!

    By the way I have said this more than once but I would love ONE top-level skater or pair or dance team do a hip-hop free skate and absolutely rock it.

    Yeah I just bought it on iTunes and added it next to The Barber of Seville. Waiting for C/L to mash it up. Am putting this into my running playlist. Heh.
