    Once in a while a skater/pair comes up with a program that you like, and it's a surprise, because you never cared for that skater, and probably won't in the future. Still, you really liked that particular program or performance. Who are such skaters?

    For me,

    Meno & Sand- I'm your man (pro)

    Abitbol & Bernadis- The mask of Zorro (Ex)

    Bourne & Kratz- Riverdance (1998 Oly FD)

    (Stephanie) Stiegler & Zimmerman- Sorcerer's apprentice (LP at one of the GPs. I think)

    Petr Barna- Chaplin exhibition at 1992 Olympics

    Jill Trenary- These boots are made for walking

    Surya Bonaly- Four seasons LP at 1993 worlds

    Gregorz Filipowski- Warsaw Concerto LP at 1989 worlds

    That's weird, coz yesterday I was watching a DVD from the Golden Skate awards (08' I think) & saw Buttle skate to Personal Jesus & thought the same thing !.
    I never really got anything he did but really enjoyed that one.
    Also, I was never a fan of Denkova/Staviski but I loved their OD at the 2003 Worlds.
