She has to wear a dress/skirt, according to the rules. I was expecting/hoping it would be black.

The Farrucas moment must have been super funny.:lol:

So why pair skaters could skate without skirt/dress?

No idea. But I remember it from 2009, when Tessa had to have a skirt in the black Pink Floyd outfit. I don't think the rules changed in the meantime.

Yes, i know. But i find this rule stupid. We all remeber Caro LP outfit from lasy season ot Alyona Savchenko outfit in SP this season.

Pink Floyd-style outfit fits for the Carmen perfectly ;).

One thing to note. Tessa said they've had people come to Canton a couple of times and they got the OK on their levels so hopefully whatever this tech panel saw is easy enough to fix in the short time they have before their next GP

Someone mentioned that their TES was not enough to qualify for Worlds. Is this true? I'm not worried about this because I don't see them scoring such a low TES again *knock on wood*, but I'm curious.

It is true that with the problems last night, they did not meet the minimum, but they did so many, many times last year, so they're good to go for Worlds.

I've decided Skate Canada is just a cursed for them If they weren't Canadian they'd probably ditch it.:lol: 2009 OD was a disaster, last year they fell, this year the lift. But it bothers me when they don't seem to no what all the deductions are for. When you make a mistake like the lift it's easy to understand but they seem confused. Same thing last season, both them and D/W had troubles during the season with levels and neither seemed to fully grasp what the problem was. Luckily it all worked out in the end but it must be frustrating if others have told you its all good.

Anyway I am in love with this SD. Who knew the choice of polka would be so great? I think it's different from alot of the other SD we've seen because it's more mellow, elegant and alot of the others are more fun, entertaining in that knee slapping, yee haw sorta way, if you know what I mean, more of what you expect polka to be. I think V/M's is wonderfully unique, and unexpected and I hope it gets fully appreciated. It really is gorgeous IMO. Yes polkas can be gorgeous.:)

I wish there were video!


This footage (I think at the 52-55 sec mark) gives a slightly better angle, still not as good as a camera angle as the recap during the live telecast.

Are you able to see it now?

Thank you! Amazing how it looks pretty bad from that angle, but like nothing from the other.


wow! :swoon: the program is so interesting! very, very sophisticated and aesthethically appealing, with an unique vibe, and very mature expression-wise. such an original choice for a yankee polka program. it doesn't feel like a "polka program", overall, though! even because the polka segment is skated with such ease and elegance, it doesn't look like a "required technical element" at all, but a real dancy part of the storyline. despite their dislike, i knew they were the best at it :D i don't know how to say it, but i feel that they're going "beyond" an ice dance piece and bringing a real story from the past that is happening before our eyes! i hope i make sense. btw, i struggle a bit to place the program in a precise era. i dunno why but they made me think of "The prince and the pauper" era, which is set in 1547 :P Scott's costume is renaissance-inspired i think, similar to this one http://babilonia61.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/cosimo-i-de-medici-duca-di-firenze.png

I feel like it's something out of a fairytale... maybe they were inspired by shows like "Once Upon a Time".... they need to be asked more questions about the storyline! I think it would be interesting if Scott portrayed someone a little bit evil who seduces the troubled girl, somewhat like DomShabs Masquerade Waltz, but it seems they are playing it "straight"....

Good luck to V&M today.

I too am hearing the music all the while. It was on my mind last night too - I had to play computer games to get rid of it!
