    Last year, WTT was a wonderful way to end the season with a win. This year it would be higher risk/lower reward. All things considered, Virtue and Moir should have skipped last year.

    Since it's the Olympic season (what?!??!), I have a feeling a lot of the top teams who have pulled out/decided not to go switched their gears to the horizon as soon as Worlds ended. No one wants to waste precious practice and planning time, I suppose.

    Not to mention, everything is slightly earlier than a regular season. It is going to be a long few months waiting for music info. :lol:

    Well, I have nothing intelligent to add to this thread (nothing new about that), except to say that this is a great thread title!

    It will also be fun to watch the "2nd tier" teams, if you can call them that, compete without the top teams there. :watch:

    It will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

    I can't keep up with who is actually going.

    Chock/Bates
    Weaver/Poje
    Carron/Jones
    Reeds
    Monko/Khavalian
    Yu Xiaoyang / Wang Chen

    It is a shame that Elena and Nikita won't be there for comparison with the others. Was there a reason given for why they didn't accept the invitation after Bobrova/Soloviev decided to opt out?

    It definitely isn't DJ. I think it is the Davis family "Obama dog".

    Some photos from World's.

    DJ, you've CHANGED! :lol: I wonder what she thinks of Meryl's dog impersonating her in a video. The spotlight has been stolen!

    I didn't think that was DJ but I didn't think they'd try to fake out the kids LOL.

    I wonder if they filmed it on April Fool's Day?

    Maybe they wanted to see if the kids were paying attention. :lol:

    It was April Fool's because they referred to her eating too much Easter dinner the day before. That's pretty funny, actually.

    Do you think Meryl and Charlie will do a B competition like Tessa and Scott sometimes do, since it's the Olympic year?

    Well, they did Nebelhorn in 2009, so I would think they would be there again this year. I hope so!!

    Yeah, I'm almost assuming they'll go to Nebelhorn again too. :lol:


    What GP events will they choose? Here's Sylvia's list from the Grand Prix thread in GSD:

    18 - 20 Oct. Hilton HHonors Skate America, Detroit, Michigan, USA

    25 - 27 Oct. Skate Canada International, St. John, New Brunswick, Canada

    1 - 3 Nov. Cup of China, Beijing, China

    8 - 10 Nov. NHK Trophy, Tokyo , Japan

    15 - 17 Nov. Trophee Bompard, Paris , France

    22 - 24 Nov. Rostelecom Cup, Moscow, Russia

    5 - 8 Dec. Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final (Combined Juniors and Seniors), Fukuoka, Japan


    Definitely SA. Does the rule about how the top 3 at Worlds can't meet still stand? If so, SC and CoR are most likely out (I'll never call it Rostelecom Cup :lol:). I'd love to see them do TEB since it's been so long and it's Paris. :cool: Only downside is if they want more time between their last GP event and the GPF to incorporate judges' feedback. But if they do an early event in the summer, any SA feedback will already be the 2nd round, plenty of time before the GPF. But then D/W not being at NHK feels weird. :lol:

    I vote for that one as well! :D

    Oh I just realized the GPF is in Japan. :duh: I feel like a season isn't complete without one trip to Japan for D/W, so that satisfies it!

    I'll be interested to see what second event they choose. Bobrova & Soloviev will be at COR, Tessa & Scott at SC, so the choices are Paris, China & NHK.

    Two of those, they've never won: Paris & China. NHK is a favorite venue for them. So who knows.

    I'll bet a cookie that it won't be Utah though; they will want to get some real International feedback, and for that they'll have to be doing one of the bigger Senior B's in Europe; Nebelhorn, which is the Olympic qualification event, Finlandia, or maybe Nepela. I bet that they don't schedule V&M at the same event, either..

    Right now my guess would be SA and TEB for GP assignments and if they do a Senior B, Nebelhorn. Tessa and Scott would probably do Finlandia again. Or maybe they'll switch it up.

    I have often wondered how their parents coped with competition. I get so nervous that sometimes I can barely watch! That was a lovely article. Thanks for sharing.
