Something to look forward to in the fall. So you don't have to bemoan the loss of summer quite as much.

Bella! <3

Is there any way for an American (a big Anabelle Langlois fan) to view it? I'm in the Southeastern United States, so I don't have any clue if I can see it, and I would love to.

Sometimes it is posted on youtube or you can usually find clips of it online at the skating videos website if you have access.

As another American and big Anabelle Langlois fan, I'm so excited for her :)

Not sure if I should start a new thread, but tonight on CBC's "The Mercer Report" Tie Domey (not sure of spelling) is supposed to be on there and they will talk figure skating.

Also, did anyone see Scott/Tessa recently on Entertainment Tonight Canada? I only saw the clip but missed the segment. It looked nice and the clip was Scott lifting or skating with the host.

I saw an ad for the Mercer Report and it was from a repeat of a show from last fall during the original Battle of the Blades time.

Here's the Rick Mercer clip from last season with Tuffy & Tie:

One of my fave RM segments ever ... until a few months later when he skated with Tessa & Scott and Nexus.

There was a Q&A about BotB with Kurt Browning in today's issue of 24 Hours. I can't link directly but go here: http://eedition.vancouver.24hrs.ca/epaper/viewer.aspx, make sure Sept 24 is showing (if not use the calendar to select), then go to page 9.

Thanks for posting this, I hadn't seen this article yet. There are also links to more articles & radio interviews posted in the Battle of the Blades thread in Great Skate Debate.

I'm hoping that some of the segments show up on youtube like they did last year - for those of us who are not in Canada to take advantage of CBC's site streaming...for anyone who can post on youtube, thank you in advance!!

Just so everyone knows, both episodes have been thrown up on youtube and can be watched there (for those who can't watch it on cbc).

This is one of the best skating shows around ! Two episodes in to this season, and it looks like it'll be a showdown between Gordeeva/Bure ; Sale/Fleury ; Bourne/Brisebois ; Anafanasieva/Stock.

The bar has definitely been raised this season and we're at about where the men were at the end of last season - showing unbelievable lifts and even some throws!!

It's a seriously good show and if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, please do - you'll love it.

The only drawback this season is having to log-in online via facebook, which I do not want to do - so I've been a speed-dialing maniac instead. Too bad.
