Yes, thanks for reminding me this, I had forgotten it :)
Worlds have been an amazing experience for me, maybe also because I was in my own country and therefore I didn't have to worry about anything but enjoying every moment of the week...and I'm glad I could completely do it!! I got to meet so much people and talk with so much skaters (mostly north americans, don't know why...) and a few times with tessa and scott too :respec:

Hey Pingu!

Tohose vids remind me of our train journey to Milan :). Thanks for posting! Watching them I made my decision to buy the all event ticket for TEB this year (if T&S go there) to see practice sessions as well.

I don't know about all of them, but at Skate Canada and Skate America you could... even at the most ridiculous hours of the morning! At SC my friends and I went to the 6:30am dance practice... and we weren't even the first ones there!!

I went to the Montreal SOI show yesterday. It was really lot of fun, and great to see all the skaters again skating (saw them at the parade Friday!). Tessa and Scott did their ballet/hockey number as well as the modified FD. Both performances were amazing, the Goose got a huge cheer from the crowd both times, and they got a standing ovation after their FD.

Before their first number, Cynthia introduces them, and her and Scott are kind of goofing around and she goes "Your Olympic Champion Tessa Virtue!" And Scott gives her this look! It was really funny...

The group numbers were amazing, especially the one before the intermission. It was a medley of recent songs (BEP, Pink etc..) and it was kind of girls vs boys. The last number was great too, although since Tessa and Scott's FD was right before it, they had to run backstage to change, so they weren't in all of the finale! Right at the end when the skaters were waving and heading off, Kurt kind of grabbed Scott and waved his hands really fast in the air like "Hey, no this is how you wave!!" Really cute again!

I didn't take that many pictures because the lighting makes it hard, but I will see what I have and then post any good ones!

Oh my gosh, I knew I forgot something: yes!! She looked soooo happy, I don't think the smile ever left her face during any group number. She really got into all the numbers (as did Scott of course) and they both really looked like they were having the time of their lives out on the ice!

A Formal Announcement?

Ok, I guess this could mean anything.

Does it mean I'm a pessimist that I'm expecting the worst? (At least, from the fan's perspective.)
