That was cute! Too bad the ISU never did the disco OD/SD.

I know. I was deprived of a B/A Disco OD and it makes me very sad.


from the article:

Since when was Marina saying that?

I've seen that Marina quote in quite a few articles this week, and I'm scratching my head too, because I don't remember at all her saying V/M's scores were too low at the GPF.

yes she did in one of the pre-worlds articles...just before the SD.

Seriously, I've always wondered the same thing. It looks like it the size of a penny:lol:

ISU is stingy :D

I know she did. I may be misinterpreting, but I felt like in the articles it was trying to be insinuated that she said that at the time of the GPF, which I'm sure she didn't.

That article, first off I agree I hate hearing 'the twilight of our career' it's makes it sound like they're ancient.

ahahahah...this. makes me immediately think of Scott and Tessa sitting on rocky chairs before a fireplace, recalling the good old days with a crocky voice. it also reminds of vampires and stuff.

Maybe she is bandwagon-jumping after the win at 4CC... :shuffle:

or maybe Fedor and Meryl broke up :EVILLE:

The exhibition is okay - I love watching them any time - so thanks for sharing the link as I slept in today and don't get to see it until tonight on CBC.

I always enjoy their exhibitions - but generally I don't go back and watch too many of them. They are probably too busy trying to be the best they can be with their competition programs and being careful with Tessa's legs- but I think they could have much better EX programs than they tend to.

I know some people say it's cheesy - but I loved their ballet / hockey guy program.

Right around the time where people started to write in places like this that 1) They should jump ship and leave Canton b/c S/Z were pulling their weight behind D/W and 2) When others started to say that V/M won 4CC and Worlds because Scott complained.

Can someone remember specifically whether Marina said this immediately after 4CC vs just before Worlds? I seem to recall the latter but can't be certain.

she said that on March 26th.

"Even on Monday, following their first practice here, the couple’s coach Marina Zoueva — she also coaches Davis and White — was not letting go of that allegedly misjudged event: “The marks were a little bit low, definitely under-marked."

to me it sounds like she was criticizing the judges more than implying that TS were better than DW.

It's not clear whether she was referring to the FD or the SD or both.

LOL. That exhibition program looked rough at best, but I am glad they were having fun. Seems to me they were improvising a little, too. I suppose they'll need to practice more for SOI. When you guys mentioned the PF lift I thought it was the combo one, which I love, but this one I loved too. I am glad Tessa can still do it.

I really like the new EX, though it's still rough around the edges, and it shows off their dance ability. I honestly don't think there's a style these two haven't tried. Talk about versitility.

That's generous :lol: I actually thought they were going to stop at one point! And the dress is HIDEOUS. But it's got potential, for sure. Let's hope they put some effort into improving it before next season because they could do such amazing galas. IMO, they really haven't in recent seasons. Of course, I'll take a gold medal over a great gala any day...

I agree, a disco OD would be awesome and a lot of fun.

I'm not sure I liked Tessa's EX dress - it's a lot flashier than we're used to seeing with her but it suited the music so I guess there's that haha They seem to be having lots of fun skating it so that's all that matters :)
