We were on the 51st page of the last thread with a looming shutdown
Well, I think it's great they are getting some positive attention. They deserve it. I really think their star is on the rise . Great new thread title too.
This wasn't posted yet, but here's their gala performance:
The thread title was suggested by Pratfall in the original P/I thread:
..Thankya..Thankya..Thankya veruh much... Gee..I named a thread ? Cool.
Thanks for posting that gala performance ! And it's even British Eurosport ! I've been checking Youtube for their coverage of the FD, but no luck, so far.. I'd really like to know what they said.
I liked these comments, though.
Oh, then here's British Eurosport's coverage of the free dance, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH8QNHrgrM8

Their technique is flawless, actual deep edges and real skating skills
Next year I hope choreographers add more complex transitions. Also, their style is nothing like V&M.
This was a good move going to K&C and not S&Z. This FD isn't the best work of K&C, but good to show great skills of an internationally-unknown team.
I don't like this so much. They didn't have the ice coverage of S&B and the overall look/feel a bit too...cutesy
"Cutesy" you say?
Well. . . I guess to each his/her own.
But I thought their performance was delightful and really captured the essence of their chosen music. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. (Can't really comment on ice coverage, not having seen it live.) Didn't find them trying to be deliberately "cute" at all. . . They appeared quite "genuine" (sincere) in their interpretation. Nothing "put on" or "fake" about this team IMO.
Their SD is totally in the spirit of the musical..comparing program to program, I thought S/B's was a hodge-podge.. musically and choreographically.. but yeah, to each their own..
Are they the favorites to make it to Sochi now? Poirier & Gilles are not even eligible due to citizenship so who else does that leave.
No, I don't think they can be considered favourites. They're my favourites, but when has that ever counted ? Piper's papers are an unknown quantity..and apart from that ,a lot will depend on how they do on the GP. They had been (undeservedly , IMO) well received nationally, but only 18th at world's which I thought was a very fair result.
So if fairly judged, P/I will be up against them (G/P), Ralph/ Hill and Orford /Williams
Hey guys, it's been a while. Just wanted to bump up the thread. Nationals is just around the corner!!
Apparently P/I skated in the Detroit FSC Champion's Revue last night. Here's a link to the video. Weaver/Poje are in there as well.
P/I are so charming. Love them- and they have improved this year.
Good luck at Nationals, P&I - great team!
First season I pay attention to them. And I'm really happy to have discovered them now.
Good luck at Nationals too.
Thanks for the link to the FD. I just love these guys.
Only a week to go , now. I'm crossing everything for these two. ( It's going to be hard for me to get around ..or even see where I'm going..)
This has been posted a few places, but not here yet -- some fun with DSC skaters after the Champions Revue, including quite a bit of screen time for Mitch and one appearance from P/I together:
What happens when you give a skater at the DSC your phone?
I really like their programs, especially the FD this year. I hope they can nab that third spot to Sochi--so far, I prefer them to Gilles/Poirier.
Danielle Earl has shared some pictures she took at practice on the VM thread 2 of V/M showing their new FD costumes (lovely) and 1 of P/I and their new FD costumes - Zowie ! There will be talk !... I hope she won't mind that I reposted here.. I always admire her photos.
Now, I'm disposed to like this costume for Alex.. the colour is rich.. It will certainly bring drama to the program, and while I'm generally not fond of a lot of illusion fabric, That often stems from it's use on very young girls , or that the overall effect is a bit tacky , and the only objective is to titillate.
The placement of the decoration in this case is beautiful.. more flowers could be added if necessary without spoiling the design..but it's really not terribly revealing. ... and if they get to Sochi , it might help to win notice for their exquisite skating.
BTW, from what you can see of Mitch , I heartily approve of his costume..again , rich looking fabric.
I can hardly wait to see this.
When I saw the thread title, I thought they might be skating to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9x1MZEDQbtA
3rd after the SD!! Go,Alex& Mitch!
That was a good program. very enjoyable and I am glad to see them 3rd.
Finally the judges got it right. Let's hope they have a terrific skate tomorrow.
Just got home from work and had to check in to see how they did.
In third place?! That's fantastic!
Now I can watch TSN coverage and relax!
So thrilled for them!! Can't wait until video surfaces, sounds like a fabulous skate.
