Yeah, but what else would be realistic at this point?

I'd love to see something new too (especially since I have tickets to the Toronto show!), but it's hard to imagine how that would happen.

I can't blame them for focusing on their competitive programs in the Olympic year. The Japanese tour is short, then it's a trip across Canada. And the Mahler and hockey/ballerina concept will work very well for the mixed (often non-skating aficionado) audience that will see them.

Frankly, I just bought CSOI tickets this year because I thought something special might happen at the Olympics/Worlds (and I regretted not buying post-Worlds tickets the year Kurt Browning first won Worlds), not because I was expecting to see new programs!

as what magglyn said, why not rework the OD and not play Everybody Dance Now to death? like how a/p did with their 2002 oly OD for exhibitions. they certainly did a more flirty version for the professional shows.

I will be happy to see them skate anything live in person. I was just voicing my opinion that a new program would be nice, but realistically I'm not holding my breath expecting a new program.

Well, I don't know for sure what they'll skate to...maybe they'll surprise me. Guess I'll find out on April 30th!

But, honestly, if you're not planning to be at the Canadian shows, why worry about it? They've only done Everybody Dance Now three times this year (Nats, Olys, Worlds), and it's good for a Canadian audience. As a fun counterpart to the Mahler piece, it probably works better for a home crowd than the OD.

Next year, it's a different story.

I think they could have new number, but was told save it for CSOI.
But guys - all must see Mahler "live", because this is reall masterpiece ;)

Stop trying to tempt me into splurging on a CSOI road trip...

I would love to see them redo Tennessee Waltz. I saw that dance in Halifax and I absolutely loved it. I wouldn't mind them do a modified Malher but I would also love to see Pink Floyd again. I saw them do it at Canadians last year and I loved it, even with the lack of practise. I only wish that they could have got that program to its full potential. I remember Tracy saying at Canadians that they had only do 1 or 2 full run throughs of the FD and that was done at the competition.

I just can't believe they would consider retiring. They have trained for over a decade to get to the top of the sport, they get there and want to leave right away? Their FD is brilliant, but a timeless masterpiece it is not. They have that kind of capacity though. :drama:

You know, i really wish they still compete and create something new.
But Mahler- masrepiece. I will remeber this FD during long time. And there victory at OG was most beautifull moment in FS at OG.
Like at WCh for the greatest moment was Takahashi LP - masterpiece perfomance from him!

I think they still have so much inside them as dancers.Mahler for me is a masterpiece but I'd like to see more masterpieces in other styles too.I'm sure they have it in them.To think that I was sceptical at first about this FD..I don't think I 'll be able to forget it for years to come now.
