    All I can say is that I don't care about any of the above because I got to see Charlie in jeans :p :shuffle: :smokin: :lol:

    It looks like Charlie took Adele very seriously. :lol:

    Everyone seems to have had so much fun rehearsing and filming. I'm glad there was so much footage.

    As an aside, I am so ready to see Meryl and Charlie compete again! Although I'm getting my wisdom teeth out the morning of the SD. But still!

    Anyone wonder if they made more adjustments to the FD? Does it, in anyone's opinion, need any more choreographic adjustments? I've really loved watching the evolution. Each change has been breathtaking. (I may still be going crazy over the bells.)

    D/W's group is about to practice. They're in FD costumes. Charlie's shirt looks tighter.

    They changed the part with the little hops before the circ steps. Now they're in like spiral positions facing each other and gliding along one side of the rink. It's really pretty! I took a video and will upload as soon as I can between events!

    I thought the tighter shirt meant he has really muscled up.

    I think it means they're starting a campaign to rub our noses in their fitness level. Typical Meryl and Charlie. Always campaigning about something.

    I like what I hear so far! Those hop steps before the circ step always seemed like pure filler to me :shuffle: (I don't understand all the hopping in this FD, truth be told), so I'm excited for this change. Matching spiral positions sounds like it'll be a beautiful moment.

    :lol:

    I thought it meant they'd taken in the shirt. There was something off about the fitting before to me.

    Perhaps they'll put out an article about how people have been criticizing their fitness level and they don't really know Charlie? ;)

    Typical Meryl and Charlie, always stealing everyone else's style. Go back to being fat slobs with no connection :mitchell:

    I'm sure it does mean they've taken in the shirt. But what does reality have to do with made up internet rumors?

    And Charlie had his SD shirt altered to make it tighter last year. They even copy themselves!

    So glad I got to see them practice today. I especially noticed that he was very protective of Meryl on the ice. Made me love Charlie even more (if possible). Three times I saw him stand in front of her or block her when others practicing came near. Very nice touch.

    Aww, that's sweet (although the cynical part of me wonders if this is some psychological strategy created by Marina :p). Thanks for the report!

    Back from pairs SP and the practice video is STILL uploading to Picasa. If I'd been able to use YouTube it would be up by now, but I don't want it to get deleted again. :mad: Hope it will be done uploading by the time I get back from dinner!

    Love the reports! I can't wait to see the changes in the FD.

    What a great interview with Steve Mesler. He asked very interesting questions.

    IN is streaming the dance practice from earlier. I see Shibs so I don't think this is M/C's group, but maybe they'll show them in a bit.

    Shibs were in the group right before them, so maybe they will!

    :cheer2: great vid TaBfan. It is so worth the wait! I love the spirals going into the step sequence.

    and their practice group is now playing on the Backstage stream on IN.

    I think the spiral is a big improvement.

    The video captured Meryl's gorgeous layback spin better than any of the televised versions--thanks TaBF!

    "You actually don't have to kill yourself today"

    I legitimately heard Marina's voice when Charlie said that. :lol:

    Love this...one of my favorite things about Charlie is the way he treats Meryl on the ice.

    Thanks for the upload TanithandBenFan. I love the little change they made in the diagonal sequence. I like the spirals as well, though I think they held the position a couple beats too long.
