I have beer and I'm ready to go :biggrin: Tea will probably come for the men.

Interested to see how the Japanese teams look, especially Chris Reed and his new partner.

This one is working for me:

This one wants me to disable adblocker, and I really don't want the site to start spitting out porn ads or something like that... thanks for the link, though.

:disagree: A big thumbs down indeed. It doesn't even matter that I don't agree about their exhibition which I thought was really different and fun to watch among most other exhibition programs at the Skate Canada gala (I definitely am not one of those who think that a fun and colorful program or a clown program is something ridiculous and tasteless by definition). It is what you said about it having thrown you off for life as a fan and about Stepanova/Bukin "destroying" them that is quite horrible (or horrific, indeed). I think you have never been a real fan of theirs if just one program could make you think that. I can't imagine myself thinking something like that about skaters whose fan I am. If, say, Stephane Lambiel or Virtue/Moir did a program that I really disliked, I would be really disappointed for sure, but I would not stop being a fan. I would just try to forget about it and wait for the next program in belief that I will like it just as I have liked so many of their previous programs. But I also never decide after just one or two programs which I have liked; "okay, now I am a fan of this skater". I look/wait for more programs first. Because, if I don't like the next two programs (which is very possible) or don't like anything at all from that skater during the next few years, what then? Do I stop being a "fan"? Or probably that skater was never "my" skater in the first place - perhaps I just liked the choreographer's work in that particular program and/or the music that the skater(s) used? Perhaps it was the case with you and Bobrova/Soloviev? Okay, sorry for the long rant.

To each his/her own. Enjoy their program. I appreciate your spirited defense.

I never said I was a fan. I said I had enjoyed some of their earlier programs.

I still hope Stepanova and Bukin beat them badly. I concede that "destroy" has an idiomatic meaning that may not translate well.

That was pretty good for a first year partnership. :clapper: How did Chris and Kana find each other?
