I have a lot of respect for them. I really hope they win nationals this month.

(But why is the article dated June 6?)

Very sweet people. Love what Mark said about the "pair community".

There are a number of pair teams that I really like and seem like nice people, but I have a lot of appreciation for Mark and Amanda. They're always so friendly and just quietly go about working to improve their skills each year. Their lifts are really impressive and I admire the dedication they've shown to the sport and the fans over the years.

They're my favorite US pairs team. They seem so genuine. I sat by Mark's family at the Olympics and they were wonderful. I hope they win gold or silver.

Love them. They have been my favorite US pairs' team since we first saw them @ 2005 Skate America. I hope they become US Champions!

I am "friends" with Amanda on Facebook. She is so articulate, thoughtful, smart, well-rounded, I could go on forever. I love her posts!

Read the article. They seem to have put an emphasis on keeping things the way they are, technically speaking. It's great that they got feedback from Christy Krall on the SBS jumps too which IMO is their weak link [well, Amanda's anyway]. I think if they go clean on their programs, they can score nice and high

I agree; they seem to have made a breakthrough this season in terms of their PCS scoring. In the past, even with relatively clean performances, they could only finish so high with PCS barely in the 6's. Those really went up this season. (ie, relative to their peer teams, even keeping in mind the general elevation in PCS scoring across all skating this year).

They are truly two of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever meet! One of my favorite Mark moments was at Nationals a couple of years ago, he noticed I'd changed the color of my hair. :lol: I only see him once or twice a year, and it wasn't even a drastic change. :)

They are always so friendly and gracious, and it would be an absolute thrill to see them win their first national title. HeatherC and I would be a blubbering mess! :wuzrobbed

Met them in the autograph line at last year's Nationals. Amanda is a total sweetie! She asked me where I was from, how I got interested in skating, and if I'm enjoying myself. And Mark was no slouch in the niceness department either.

I'd love to see them finally get that National title! :)

They were guest skaters in our club show the year before the Olympics. Before the show they did an impromptu death spiral clinic with the 3 pairs from our area, just because they were there.

Amanda was quieter, but both she and Mark made sure to talk with all the skaters, and Mark really goofed around with everyone.

I'm fans of theirs for sure- just because they are such great people.

If my blubbering mess from Spokane when they made the Olympic team is any indication, I should probably be wearing either none or highly waterproof mascara because it will get a MASSIVE workout if they win in San Jose, LOL :rofl: :lol:

I don't have enough words for how wonderful these two people have been, not only to me but to so many other fans, for all these years. I consider them friends and I also consider it a privilege to watch them skate every year. They have worked SO hard for SO many years to get to this point and I very badly want them to win that national title this year. I know they can do it! :cheer:

Yeah, I know I sound way cheesy but hey, I'm an uber, let me have my random cheesy moment as we lead up to US Nats, LOL :lol:

You were not the only "blubbering mess" I cried too... and Amanda's "interivew" with NBC lives on as one of the "best" ever. (For those who didn't see it, she was crying too hard to really talk!)

I really hope this is the year for them.. They are a class act and that's not always true in the "pair" events :)
