    I really doubt that it would be the right thing, when they have a chance to perform in the first event of the kind ever - figure skating combined with LIVE opera music (performed by famous opera singers) in the grand arena of Verona (it's not some ice rink, but an ancient amphitheatre almost as big as Colliseum in Rome - the ice will be made especially for the show there). And Carolina Kostner is the "face" of this event, but Lambiel will not only skate there, but also choreograph two programs for Carolina to arias from 'Carmen' and 'Tosca'. Not to mention that it will be broadcast on the big screen in 600 cinemas around the world. I don't think even 'Japan Open' and 'Carnival on Ice' can beat that. Sorry, MR-FAN.

    No, that was over several years ago, although they are still friends. Simply, Kostner is Italian, but Lambiel obviously just loves Italy and is loved back by the Italian public.

    Carolina has (had?) a marathon runner boyfriend, I think. He's very successful (olympic champion?)

    A :sekret: (an ISU judge that I know) has mentioned that it is apparently a known fact that within the FS community that Carolina isn't exactly to Stephane's tastes...

    screech, I am not so sure that even they know more than figure skating fans do, because Lambiel, while being a generally open person, is indeed very private about his private life, but his fans follow him quite closely (I don't quite mean stalking, although sometimes it reminds just that :lol:).

    Why do the judges talk about skaters sexuality behind their back?

    I usually watch it on KeyHoleTV. :)

    I am sorry but the arena is the only place you can watch the event live, unless some fan cam gives a live stream.

    There should be a delayed broadcast like in previous years, right?

    Any news about the new entries for Team Europe??? It's coming up so soon!

    Or rather, who do you think will be chosen, and let's forget about the skaters who are busy that day (Carolina Kostner and Stephane Lambiel)
