It seems commonplace that buried somewhere within each of the fan threads for the top Pairs & Ice Dance couples, inevitably a mini-discussion/debate ensues over speculation & rumors of brief romances and/or ongoing relationships. Despite attempts by some couples to hide their off-ice relationships, often the misinformation & deceptions leaked to the pubic/media by the skaters themselves become so elaborate and fantastical that they fool no one! Conversely, despite being untrue, some fans swear to have 'inside knowledge' that a certain Pair or Ice Dance couple are secretly dating, or had a short 'fling', or even managed to have a child together (...and conveniently timed the birth to coincide perfectly with the "off season" ).
Rather than scattered across multiple locations and buried deep within huge multi-year fan threads, I thought we could publish all the stimulating & salacious "are they; or aren't they" off-ice relationship discussions together in one place ... front & center!
But, a word of caution for would-be relationship gossipers ... it is often very hard to determine the truth behind the existence (or not) an off-ice relationship! As example, I give you this short clip from one of the Canadian Olympic Committee's "Heading to Sochi - Athlete Profiles" videos showing Canadian Ice Dancers Jenny Morgan & Victor Tobbs. Are they an "item" or not? Or, are they really just being "coy" about their real off-ice relationship??
Ok, ok ... just a bit of fictional humor to launch the thread!
So, on a more serious note (...or should I say 'salacious note') ...what have you heard??
