    Looks like the "Orange Team" are a lively group of Spanish fans -- each skater picks 6 questions from different color categories and are awarded points.

    Hahah, such great interviews. It's interesting to see how a lot of the skaters are so competitive, so they tended to only choose the red questions so they would get more points. C/L story about Italian Nationals was so funny.

    Hearing about Adam's thoughts about 4CC last year though made me feel a little :wuzrobbed... and also a little stupid, because I went to say hi to him at the competition, and suddenly couldn't think of anything to say, and so I said how I was so sorry that he didn't make it on the podium. He nodded politely, but...

    Oh well.

    What's the difference between the different colours?

    Love Patrick's interview. How can anyone say he is a cocky kid? Also V/M's question about if they ever think they were robbed... MAN the initial pondering moment was tense, I almost thought they will say "yeah..."

    The red cards (the hardest) had a "base value" :D of 5 points, 3 points for the yellow cards and 1 point for the green cards. We had 6 cards of each color and the skaters had to pick 6 questions, it was their choice if they wanted to get more points or just answer easier questions.

    We were quite surprised the most of them chose the red questions. They were so competitive :lol:

    We have the Spanish Team questions subtitled in English:
    Sara Hurtado: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpgfdaCiZEU
    Adria Diaz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcwRHPP8Tk0
    Sonia Lafuente's one is uploading.

    Also we have another one in the making. Jeremy Abbott knew about the game and wanted to answer the questions but we didn't see him on Sunday morning before the gala, when we made the game. He apologized on our Facebook group and told us he still wanted to do it if it was possible. We're gonna try a Skype interview whenever he has the free time. Here's his sweet message:

    Just saw V/M -- so cute! They are really funny. :) Love how Scott said "Malaguena" without even having to think about it.

    Amanda Evora is SO pretty and seems to have a great personality! :)

    Eric Radford is such a hottie! :smokin:

    And did Patrick infer that he had the most hope of all the Canadian skaters from the federation/country to medal in Vancouver? I definitely don't think he had more hope than Virtue/Moir did.

    Tessa seems really sweet and she's pretty too! :)

    Adam is funny and cute and seems to love talking! :p

    Could Anna & Luca be more adorable? I think not! I got a chuckle out of their stories and they seem like so much fun. LOVE them! :swoon:

    This is a really great idea and gives us a real glimpse into the skaters and their personalities. Thank you for the great, fun idea, Orange Team, and thank you for sharing with us fans! :D

    Don't think so. He said there were a lot of expectations for Canadians to win medals ( not just skaters ) and he is correct in that he was one of the bigger expectations. I think he's talking about the whole Own the Podium movement and he was definitely highly regarded as a safe bet during that campaign.

    Thank you, Orange Team!

    You guys had much more interesting questions than we usually hear with the professional interviewers. The skaters all sound so relaxed, you must have made them feel very comfortable.

    The competitiveness is so funny. Did all of them say something about winning? Lol

    That was awesome! Mae's had too much background noise, so I couldn't hear her, but the rest were just so fantastic!
