    Didn't Tanith work closely with the Shibs last season?

    I'm really curious about Meryl's plans and whether she'll work with a team.

    H/B are still at DSC though, right? Or is it only a matter of time before Marina swoops in?

    Yeah, they are still at DSC. Aldridge and Eaton recently left DSC for Marina, though, and they were obviously inspired by Charlie and Meryl what with their Bollywood FD. Maybe Charlie or Meryl could mentor them as well.

    It will definitely be interesting to see how involved Meryl and Charlie stay within the fs community. Maybe Charlie is only mentoring the Shibutanis because he knows them so well or maybe he will get into coaching like Tanith after all. Meryl has always seemed pretty firm about not planning to make her career in figure skating, though, when she talks about how important her college education is to her.

    ETA: Oh, and yeah I remember Tanith mentioning that she'd had the chance to mentor the Shibutanis last season during an interview she was doing with them, either at nationals or at the Olympics.

    I think Charlie's expressed interests outside skating as well, but it will be interesting to see where they both will be in five, ten years. They've really helped put ice dancing out there in the States, so they may continue to be a part of the community while still pursuing other interests as well.

    ETA: The kids in Charlie and Meryl's Classroom Champions see them as friends. How cute. Article here

    Charlie is one of the few people who actually looks better when he is not smiling.

    Cool can't wait to see videos and photos from that.

    Speaking of videos, saw this on twitter. I'm excited to see what the Shibs come up with!

    After that video from DWTS of Charlie giving himself a pep talk in the mirror, I fully believe he actually did it!

    They both look so refreshed and happy. I'm getting a lot of secondhand enjoyment watching these two embrace everything that's come along since the Olympics.

    The NASCAR marketing people knew what they were doing when they chose driver Austin Dillon to do the promo with Meryl & Charlie. They obviously checked the demographics for figure skating fans. Austin is a mother's/grandmothers dream.He is young, cute, and polite. He seemed completely at ease with Meryl and Charlie. Austin remarked that it was nice to meet athletes that are the same size as him rather than the big football players he usually gets to meet at events.
