    Love it!

    You know, I'm really curious to hear what Igor would have to say.

    Ha! Gotta love the way we couldn't decide for the title :D

    Here's hoping this isn't our last thread, so we can use a few more ideas ;)

    I also repeat my question from the previous thread, which might have gotten lost between the title suggestions:
    Does anyone know where I can watch the medal ceremony (ungeoblocked)? Or if any of you managed to download it, I would be more than grateful for a link.

    Well the title has Olympic Champions in it so I'm good with this title. For the next thread, I say we go with A Whole New World. :)

    Here in Michigan everyone is buzzing about Meryl and Charlie's win :) I'm so proud of them- and I just got my Stars on Ice ticket to see them again!

    Don't want to rain on anyone's parade but I remember, in 2002, A/P had said they would go to Worlds as well (coincidentially, they were in Japan, too) and ended up not going because the media frenzy was just too much and they didn't feel they had the energy to.

    On a side note, it seems like Meryl and Charlie are among the first group of athletes who don't have to pay any taxes for their Olympic medals! :)

    Does anyone know if there are any videos of the the post FD press conference? I've read a couple quotes, and have seen some of V&M's, but can't seem to find Meryl and Charlie's. I noticed watching V&M versus just reading their quotes I got quite a different feeling so I'd be interested to D&W's as well.

    Many congratulations to Meryl and Charlie.

    Selfishly, I hope they go to Worlds.
    I want to see them do "Scheherazade" once more

    same and Japan really adores them, too.

    I also hope they do The Ice this year as well :D

    ...along with DWTS of course :lol:

    From what my parents just told me, it sounded like it was. Especially since they explicitly mentioned that the athletes from these Games are included :)

    FYI, I'm still going with Derek's statement:

    "That's Why They're Champions"

    I want them to go to Worlds to be introduced as Olympic Gold Medalists and to have their last skate be to a thunderous audience and you know the skating fans of Japan will give them a proper reception!!! And of course I just want to see them skate these wonderful programs one last time.

    I wonder if Meryl will go puppy hunting in Sochi?

    WOW. I did not know that Charlie plays the violin. His little performance on the Today show this AM was impressive. :encore:

    His brother's a guitarist,AFAIR.

    Btw, if you have comcast, the sd, fd, and separate FD performances are free On Demand. Tracy Wilson commentary. And the audio and video are decently synched, which especially the live broadcast wasn't. They'll be up until March 26.

    Wonder if anyone will tell them that Meryl used to play the flute. :lol: That was very impressive, I can't believe it's been three years since he played!

    A&P were almost accused of being apart of something illegal. remember that tape with that creepy guy in contact with Anissina's mother? FBI was processing the case.

    That's much more serious than what is going on now with some bitter people who only take gold as an answer. And by those I dont think V&M.

    FINALLY got to see the medal ceremony! Wow, everyone looked so happy there!

    And gotta say it was one :smokin: Olympic podium. They're all so pretty. And Meryl, wow, gorgeous. I mean, she looked prettier than Elena, which says something.

    My mom actually texted me before they skated last night (I was good and didn't ruin the surprise!) and said she hoped Charlie would propose to Meryl after they won :lol: Oh dear, my mother is a hopeless romantic. I assured her they both have gorgeous significant others and are probably very happy with just being friends

    I had read that he played, and had seen a picture of him with a violin when he was younger. But I didn't know he was that good! :respec:

    Do any of you music mavens know which piece he was playing and/or the composer? :confused: I thought it might be a Bach partita. :violin:

    Do you think Meryl will cut her hair? It has gotten so long!! Makes me wonder if her long hair was her "lucky charm"!

    That's one gorgeous medal podium there, and the skaters are pretty good looking too... ;)
    Everyone looks :glamor: although I do wish Scott & Tessa didn't have to wear those hats...

    I wouldn't be surprised. My friend cut a sizable amount of hair off for the first time in years, and she was about to cry. People can get really attached to their hair and place a lot of significance/luck to it.

    :huh: That didn't happen until the end July and has nothing to do with why they didn't go to Worlds in Japan after the Olympics. They were as popular in Japan as D/W are now and they wanted to reclaim their world title and just like D/W had said right after the Olympics they would go. Then they didn't because, as I said, they realized after that whirlwind of media attention, they didn't have the energy to. (Gwendal said, if I remember correctly, something along the lines, that they wanted to enjoy their win, and they couldn't have, had they had to train.)

    I was simply pointing that out because whatever D/W say now could very well change depending on what is following media wise and how they feel in a couple of weeks.

    She could donate several inches to Locks of Love, and still have pretty long hair. :D

    http://www.locksoflove.org/donate.html

    They accept a minimum of 10 inches.

    In love with this thread title!

    I so hope they skate at Worlds. Japan just loves them, and they love Japan, and it would be such a lovely gift.

    I still can't believe how quickly the last four years flew by. I still feel like they just won their first world championship! Now they're Olympic champions!

    (And as far as cutting hair goes, I bet Charlie can't wait for his summer cut!)

    Speaking of hair, though, do you think they'll continue to dye/highlight after they retire (whenever that may be)?

    Apparently a lot of the hair does not go to cancer patient wigs. There is supposed to be a better charity to use if you're donating hair. It was part of Shawn White stories.
