Just like your hatred of D/R doesn't change the fact that they have two World medals, and MT/M have none, nor does it change the fact that S/P have a slew of gold medals including a World and Olympic gold, no matter how you desperately and pathetically you attempt to paint them as the worst team ever.
Okay, okay. I knew before hand that drama and more drama would come when three of the biggest pillars of GS joined a thread at once.
But I didn't expect it to be Romance of the three kingdoms (Skyfly - CSG - Pangtongfan) this is not just an usual drama, but historic and heroic drama! For more information, please visits:
I am watching, please continue.
1 a questionable OGM
1 Overscored World Gold and deplorable GPF Gold
not much to brag about that
D/R are 7th place finisher in Sochi
lost the SC gold to Berton / Hotarek and was near off the podium
never medaled in GPF even S/H and B/L have done
Gracie had a 4th place finish at Olympics
has placed 6th and 4th at Worlds
Osmond is a 13th finisher at Olympics
and off the Top 10 at Worlds
I can't believe I'm admitting this as a Canadian, but I'm almost rooting for USA to win pairs before Canada wins men. The men's curse has gotten so bad I simply find it funny at this point. I mean, I feel bad for Elvis (he really could've won both times, that damn injury in Nagano), but by the time it got to Chan I just sighed and went, "Well, that's such a surprise..." We've got three people who have two Olympic medals each (if we count Chan's team medal), of only about eight men who have won more than one Olympic medal since Dick Button. All six of those medals are silver.
EDIT: Lol, Meoima, you're killing me with the Romance of the Three Kingdoms reference! Also, I should clarify, in light of Pangtongfan's post--I have nothing against the attitudes of Canadian skaters. Not really rooting for our men because I never rooted for people based on nationality. And because of the above (that I've pretty much given up and will be happy to have the joke over the OGM).
As for trying to diss D/R for losing the SC gold to B/H... Gracie lost the SC gold AND silver after bombing her FS, to end up 3rd... behind Lipnitskaia and Suzuki. She also was ACTUALLY off the podium at NHK, losing yet again to Suzuki (and Radionova). Forget about D/R "never medaling" at the GPF... Gracie Gold hasn't even qualified for the GPF.
B/L and S/H have never medaled at Worlds, so I don't see how that somehow puts them above D/R never having medaled at the GPF.
