Nice article on them by Maclean's: http://www2.macleans.ca/2010/03/01/canada%E2%80%99s-sweethearts/

I honestly wonder how they can top their programmes this season, assuming they stay on. I'm dying to see what the dancers will do for the OD next season! I am curious to know if they'll have a new Ex for Worlds! (Probably not, but I think they'll have a new one for SOI)

It's honestly quite hilarious that EVERYONE is convinced they're dating. I showed their FD to a couple of non-skating fans and they didn't believe me. The true/slant article was :lol:. V/M should consider a career in acting.

ALLEZ V/M! :D

:cheer: for this thread.

Loved the Macleans article! So many people contributing to their success as well as their own hard work and determination. The thought of them being too shy to talk to each when they first paired up is very sweet, although hard to imagine with Scott's outgoing personality. :lol:

And their last CSOI date's on my b-day. I'm so tempted...

As for staying on (I hope so) and I think the sky's the limit for them artistically. I've been watching last seasons FD and also from their EX the other night and I hope they'll explore some more modern dance/music like Pink Floyd.

Been checking up the Facebook fan pages for V/M (three of them. One for the two and one for each individually). Before V/M won membership in the Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue fan page was 20 (I was one of them). During the Olympics, it rose to about 100 to 200. The days after they won, there has now been 4000+ members.

I don't know whether it's just Canadian pride, the fact that there is a fan page for V/M and longtime fans just hasn't seen it yet, or the "OMG I love this team I wonder if there's a fan page for them on Facebook OMG there it is! *becomes a fan*" hype like what I saw with the numbers in Evan Lysacek's fan page but it's good to know they're becoming known. I'll take the latter.

(Have a feeling that most of the increase is due to every-four-year fans. Hopefully it won't decrease as the years go on or next season when they stop caring about skating. Hehehehehe. :P)

YAY V/M!!!!!!!!!!! You made that Goose fly!

Agreed. I think that's the main thing I'm looking forward to. To see what types of FD's V&M will skate to in the coming seasons. I wonder if they might even use an outside choreographer at some point, just for a little variety.

I'm sorry I never got the Pink Floyd FD on tape, I have to go to youtube when I want to see it. Perhaps they'll bring back a version of it as an exhibition. I can hope.

Greate article! What a hard way they had to get this moment of there lifes. Russian commentator said it was easiest victory at this OG, but i think it was really hard. To get up every day at 4-30, to live along, without pearents from 13-15 yesars old, live in another country from 14-16, this Tessas injury, when doctors didnt know, what happened with her.
It really inteersting - what a different wayes they have with Meryl and Charlie and what a close friends they are.
Maybe we must have 1 V-M tread now?

I don't usually read Maclean's, but I picked up a copy this week because V/M are on the cover and there are quite a few pages of Olympic coverage.

Oh, I know! All the comments at the end of that article are from people saying that they MUST be in love, "have you seen the way Tessa looks at him?" etc. Hilarious!

pani, Marina made a comment after they won OG about how they plan to skate for a long time yet. And Scott said something like, "We've only just begun." They haven't confirmed anything but it sounds likely they are coming back for at least another season.

Good to have our thread back. There was a great cheer thread in the Oly ice dance forum, but a lot of regulars weren't there!

Yes, Marina said, but at NBC interwie (they answer on people questions) Dave ask - will they end skating because of Tessas injurie. Tessa said, that she is OK now and skate without pain. And that they will go to WCh, then in CSOI tour and only then will decide will they skate more or no.

I'm confused about whether or not V&M have an agent. I'm assuming from their website, they have one (McAlpine Sports which seems to specialize in NHL hockey), but I thought Tessa said in some interview after the FD that they don't have one yet.

Anyway, here's an article that says Grey Goose vodka has named a drink after V&M :lol:

I hear the drinking age is 19 in Canada so Tessa could go ahead before she turns 21 in May.

Lucky bastards. :P Enjoy the Grey Goose, Tessa!

Look, like they will have greate time at home! :)
