    Any gala reports? I'm assuming they skated to SLY.

    SLY was great. They came out again for an encore, and Meryl slipped and fell in the prep for it. She gave a little wave to show she was fine and they skated the last minute of ND, just like in Japan. The crowd was great.

    Meryl had a little slip in the encore portion :eek: She got up, waved to the crowd and resumed skating :lol:

    I think she somehow hit Charlie's skate. Her little wave and big smile is cute as she gets back into the encore. :lol:

    I like how they gave Daisuke a high five when they were leaving the ice and Daisuke was coming on the ice. Cute moment!

    Beautiful! Thanks for the link! Meryl and Charlie always have such fantastic endings, ND and S&D have my two favorite endings.


    Also just have to say this... thinking about the next year leading to Olympics is almost painful to me...the V/M uber thread has reached new levels of superiority complex and I know it's only going to get worse. Like Terry Gannon and Tanith pointed out, guess I'll have to put on my Teflon armor. And also have a lot of posters on ignore...which means I won't have to worry about avoiding the V/M thread (cause I still have my weak moments) since I won't be able to read much of it!

    Oh yes, those endings are marvelous!

    As for the Olympic season, yes, it's gonna be hard to bare, considering last time I don't think anyone truly believed Meryl and Charlie had a shot at gold. Now they obviously do and are much more of a competition for Tessa and Scott than four years ago. It might really get nasty out there. Maybe I will just stick to this very thread and ignore everything else next season ;)

    Putting all this aside, guys, we need a new thread title!

    I love all of the suggestions.

    All of the silly comments about them recently have made me lean towards the sarcastic. :lol: "So Many Threads, So Little Connection" kills me.

    Just watched SLY. Meryl looks gorgeous in that pale yellow! I may not be the biggest fan of this exhibition piece, but it was a very nice performance of it here.

    :lol: that's funny!

    But I wonder if it's reactive instead of proactive- and by being reactive it's giving credence to the critics. Maybe using some of the intention behind your suggestion but in a more positive statement.

    Love the team Japan photo and I agree, it was a matter of time :p.

    Meryl looks stunning. Somehow I feel like their mothers will continue to take photos of them together long after they're done skating.

    They really are a beautiful couple...I've always loved how they are so ying and yang, yet when they are together, they just fit!

    LOVE all the thread title suggestions...I'm leaning toward "The Polka Connection" since it references the connection thing in a positive way and also references the best SD of the season! Maybe even take it further, like "The Polka Connection in Notre Dame"?

    :rofl: What parent wouldn't want a daughter/son-in-law they knew EVERYTHING about and whose mom they were BFFs with already. Sounds like a mother's dream to me.

    I agree with the ying and yang. Also "The Polka Connection" is very cute "positive" snark.

    I like the Polka Connection, as well. ahah it puts the Rainbow Connection into my head. Which is not entirely irrelevant!

    Meryl and Charlie's connection
    It's only an illusion
    And Tessa and Scott have nothing to hide
    So we've been told and some chose to
    Believe it
    But I know they're wrong wait and see

    ~Someday we'll find it
    The Polka Connection
    The lovers, the dreamers and me~~~~
