    World's is in London. Tessa & Scott could skate to Three Blind Mice, in honor of the tech panel, and the crowd would explode with applause. How much better will the crowd react to Carmen than a simple standing O! I expect the crowd will be on their feet 30 seconds before the program ends.

    pani, I don't understand how you are wuzrobbing a competition (GPF) that hasn't even happened yet. :huh:

    Further, I don't understand why you persist in dragging D/W into this thread, insulting one or both and then getting mad at people defending them. You seem to think that it's okay for you to be nasty about D/W while everyone must be kind to V/M.

    Why do ANY of you take part in this conversation?

    V&M have great programs this season, just enjoy that. As for the "other side" just enjoy that you get to see them skate this weekend and be excited for that.

    Pani loves to tickle DW fans and DW fans love to be tickled by her. It's a win-win. :)

    I agree about Shibutanis. I liked their program even on TV not in it's best form.

    As for the other statement - I don't hide that I like both Tessa/Scott and Meryl/Charlie, but like Tessa and Scott a bit more, and always want them to win. But this is too much. Are you really saying that Charlie is just "skating around", and that he is not talented at all? Okay, we can say that he is not as talented as Scott, but - just skating around? Really? And do you really think that Charlie has not been/is not working hard to achieve that level in ice dance where he is (okay, not the level of Tessa and Scott in some things, but still a really high level), even though his parents have money? Are you that delusional that you think it can be achieved without hard work? Or do you just want to insult Meryl and Charlie that much? You keep attacking people who have said nothing insulting about Tessa and Scott (at least not here).

    About DORISPULASKI - I rarely go to Golden Skate forum, so I have no idea what you have read there.

    Finally - I have always wondered why it's so difficult for some people to understand that it's possible to like two very different rival skaters, artists, or whatever at the same time without necessarily hating one of them :rolleyes:.


    Edit: read the supposed terrible things that DORISPULASKI has said about Tessa and Scott at the Golden Skate forum. Not so terrible at all - of course :).

    lauravvv, please ignore pani. There's a vicious double standard in how he/she debates and it's not worth engaging in.

    I offer to start the standing O .. let's say we start about 5 seconds into the program and just escalate from there! :D

    (So excited to actually be able to walk to Worlds .. how awesome is that??? :biggrinbo )

    Oohhhh, I like your thinking about starting the standing O early. Of course, the likelihood I will be at World's is getting dimmer and dimmer but one can hope (OK health, let's get this show on the road already!) :D And you can walk to World's? You live that close to the arena? I'm jealous ;)

    Well if I can't join all of you in person there, I will start my standing O at home.

    if you want to read my blog in another language, find the section on the sidebar that says "translate" and pick your new language. the entire blog gets translated. it's a translation, so it's not perfect, but i hope it helps.

    i would agree with standing only at the end so that those who are uninitiated or arent fans of the program will get a full view of it, whether they like it or not

    You guys who are going to world's are SO lucky. I cannot wait to hear your reports, all the impressions that you'll get being in that live arena! I can't even imagine the energy and adrenaline. I'd be such a wreck. Clarie, I do EXACTLY what you do when it comes to watching Patrick's and VM's skates, I'm even super silly about checking the ISU scores...like I slowly scroll to reveal. It's ridiculous.

    *back pat ^ I know your pain so well. While I have you,...last weekend I visited the archives to dig up the first ever VM thread in FSU, and LOVED your post about how curious you were about the rivalry that might develop between VM and DW, and how difficult it was going to get down the road for their fans. Seriously, sequins, talk about hitting it. This was RIGHT after their first world's in '07. Trip down memory lane....

    Also that thread was a super interesting read. It's amazing how some of you were there from the very beginning...

    Wow okay I don't really remember but thanks. Nice to know I have had something useful to say at times:)It's nice to have watched and been a fan of V/M since the beginning. I'm often late to the party for many skaters and have to 'catch up' but luckily not in their case or Chan's. I have to thank CTV for that. For showing V/M win in the jrs. at Canadians it inspired me to go see them at jr. Worlds in Kitchener and I've been hooked:cheer2: ever since.

    i have also played catch up with most of my fav skaters, though i remember watching michelle kwan grow up on tv. i remember her as a jumping bean startup to chen lu's more mature presentation, only to see michelle develop that maturity as well down the road. with v/m, i remember being able to know them just as they were rising in the senior ranks, circa UoC era. and that's a pretty early start for me. i think i got to know them in the gordeeva-grinkov forums when fans mentioned them being the g/g of ice-dance, all the more being coached by marina herself.

    I will start the standing ovation as they come out on the ice. (Although I'll only be watching from my couch...)

    Personal opinion not make it truth ;) What all fan like you or Doris talk about here or other forum not make it truth. It is personal opinion. If you find lot off pleasure that is good. That is what forum for. It only for entertain and discussion. Not show truth or lies or give skater results :D
