    Well that clears that up. This is the delayed apocalypse!! The end of chocolate = the end of the world. Delayed two years of course for us to discuss the 2018 OGM step sequence from the ladies.

    In all seriousness though, I like Aljona and she's a great competitor. I like her drive and ambition, and respect her for it. But I somehow don't think she'll be able to replicate the alchemy she had with Robin. But I do hope she does well with Bruno!
    I want OGM for Aliona! I'm on team V/T more than team S/S, but I really respect Aliona's determination and competitive drive, and I think if she wins gold at 35, it'll be a huge inspiration to the skating world. (I'd be happy if she and Massot win a medal of any colour though).

    Lol, better Bronze Queen than eternal fourth place (*cough*Brezina*cough*). And Aliona has five World titles; she doesn't lack for gold.

    Yup. All of this. And by "eternal fourth place" I would think the two more accurate examples are Selezneva / Makarov (worlds 84, 86, 87, 90) and Petrova / Tikhonov (worlds 99, 01, 02, 04), although S/M got OBM 84 and P/T were world title holders once.

    And who's to say that she can't get OGM at 34? S/Z got theirs at 31 and 36, respectively. Although the difference is that they skated together for decades before.

    you know what, this might totally boost the popularity of this sport. Considering the mess chocolate skating would make, I predict that if your prediction happens, some advertisers will sell FS as a more elegant and more tasty version of mud wrestling.

    And while we're still at it ... here are some more:

    - Yulia retires next year (she won't, and I want her to stick around until at least 2018)
    - Asada AND Kim both return for 2018 ... but NEITHER win OGM!
    - Presenting America's new ice dance champions ... Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, interpreting the entire Lady Gaga discography (with Beyonce for good measure)
    - Robin Szolkowy decides to return, Aljona won't break up with Bruno, so he takes up with ... Vera Bazarova
    - the two dominant Canadian pairs competing at the national level, trading 1-2 places will be MTM v. 2.0 and Dylan with Lyubov

    And now I've spun way out of control into the fantastical, methinks.

    I would actually love that.

    And when Lady Gaga finds out, she decides to produce 'Gaga On Ice.' Tara and Johnny are the headliners, Gaga's skating double is Gracie

    I'm @ the office & am trying to maintain some semblance of professional dignity. It's not working -- you guys are too funny! But the phone thing is soooo 20th century, no? I'm thinking Twitter or Instagram or something...

    This combined with an earlier prediction (from someone else, I can't take the credit for it): OGM goes to Adelina Sotnikova because everyone else falls over at least four times and they thus have no choice but to give it to her!

    And when you talked about P/T and eternal fourth place... my brain immediately went to Pang/Tong who were fourth in 2006 and 2014 (I know that's not who you meant but my brain went there... at least they got Olympic silver and a World title).

    And hey, before winning gold, Shen/Zhao won bronze twice. So if history holds true, Aliona's chances ain't bad.

    Adelina winning in 2018 ... but I figured she'd retire by then. Or if she comes back, she places 25th in the SP and misses the FS ... [cues ominous music] --> ~crazy prediction~

    Re: P/T = Petrova / Tikhonov and Pang / Tong = yup, I hear ya, we're used to talking "P/T" referring to the Chinese in the last 8 years! BTW they got two world titles, ahem.

    As for S/Z and Aljona ... holy I didn't see that pattern!!! Well done! :P

    I'm having way too much fun with this thread.

    This might actually happen. Will someone Tweet this idea at her Gagaship?

    I'm unsure who Mushy is ... are you saying Mishkutenok and Zhenya get together? Because I WANT TO SEE THAT. I really really want to see.

    I want to see plushy with Ashley Wagner. Sass and Sassy.

    No, no, see my crazy prediction on post #135. Mushy is Yuzuru. Came out of one of ~Pamina~'s daydreams after Yuzu recently re-adopted the mushroom haircut during the Together on Ice show. (Full craziness on Yuzu Fan Fest).

    ...I hadn't even thought of Mishkutenok coming out of retirement. Though why not? I suggested Dick Button returning to eligible competition, and he's older than everyone else mentioned put together!
