a bit OT, still v/m, but can anyone post a link of v/m's UoC fd with the eurosport/brit commentators? not sure which event it was, but it was UoC. and i loved the commentators' quips on that event. i havent found a vid to that yet on youtube

Link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onsN7NQx9IY)

The uploader is amazing, but she (he?) had a typo in Virtue's name, thus meaning it doesn't show up in general searches.

This clip was posted on fanforum you can see the new variation of their lift (FD) in it: http://watch.tsn.ca/featured/clip604104#clip604720

I was able to watch, but can't turn up the sound right now. I liked the new lift though.

I'll have to watch again later when I can listen, but until then, can anyone give me a rundown on what they said, please?

Scott mentions that they reworked both lifts, one of them is new, which is "fun, but a bit daunting in December". Tessa said that Scott was so fired up after the GPF, but that's what she loves about him, that he's emotional and wears his heart on his sleeve. And they also talked about how competitive they are and how, growing up, Scott would never let Tessa out-twizzle him or out-run him, which wasn't easy because she was so good, at which Tessa laughed. They said they're happy to be back and that skipping Nats last year was very tough.

I didn't get to see the new lift very well, I'm curious about it. Oh, they also mentioned that they changed a lot of connecting steps and steps into and out of lifts to make it all look more dynamic.

I've been a little nervous that reworking the programs, especially the FD, was/is going to turn into Face the Music and Dance: Part II. I suppose we'll find out in the next few days what the total effect is.

Tesse looks like she's lost weight. TSN is showing her warming up off-ice and she looks quite skinny.

Backstage glimpse before the final flight - Scott is wearing the Latin costume from the summer shows. Good choice.

:eek: Guess this pink dress really is unlucky...

terrible skate and low score Weaver and poje will beat this if they go clean.

They need to burn it ASAP.

I'll come out and say I think D&W are going to win worlds this year. Ice dance is all about momentum, especially when you have two teams so close to one another. Unless D&W make mistakes like V&M did at the GPF and end up second at 4CCs (I assume both teams are competing?), I can't see the situation changing. Tessa and Scott had no room for mistakes after the GPF so today was unfortunate.

ETA: However, I'd still bet on V&M winning in London 2013.

Nope I think she looks a little heavier.

Not a good skate, did not like Scott's shirt, he looked like a throwback to a character out of the porn movie Boogie Nights. :confused:

Ugh Tessa seemed uncomfortable & Scott was not happy looking after it, also the crowd sucks, the place is almost empty, shame on you NB.
Also was not that impressed with the ending lift & the dismount was not clean & seemed rushed, not a good ending with the music.

I think Tessa looks the same size she has been all season :rolleyes:

Hard to judge the changes because of the mistakes and the poor skate tonight but based on the skate I saw tonight I wonder if they shouldn't have just found a sexier lift and kept it within the temptation section of the music. Seems now that the Temptation section is too long.

I'm thinking right now it's also mental and unfortunately with two mistakes in a row on that SD I think the pressure will build. Not sure they are in the right place to get that sorted out.

Mentally or physically?
