    No, I said if would be fun if Davis & White were on DWTS. That won't happen in the US, but I still think it would be fun
    .

    It would be fun if Tessa & Scott were on the Canadian version of Dancing With the Stars, as part of competing couples, too. I think they would be fantastic.

    In either case, we might get an extra ice dance fluff as part of the show; I'd be all for it!

    I know it is time to move on from this but I just had to say I find it a bit amusing that it is a comment by PJ that got such a negative reaction. I have watched and listened to PJ hour upon hour when she was alone on Bold and she amazed me with her ability to find something positive to say about each and every skater. She no doubt has her own opinions and she does interview and know the Canadian skaters well but IMHO she bends over backwards to compliment everyone. The same cannot be said for all commentators. Anyway, I learn a lot from her comments and find her very informative. When she points out an area that a particular skater can improve on, I often see it more clearly myself. Most of the professionals stating opinions do have a horse or more in the race and we all know that.

    Thanks pani. I got goosebumps when Tessa & Scott did that last blurb of welcoming us to their HOME in London, Ontario, Canada.

    Thinking it's time to put someone on ignore cause their comments feel troll-like in a V/M topic.

    this is why i like to call her queen tessa
    krylova's carmen is very generic imo perhaps it seemed innovative back then because of the different judging system
    or maybe it seems generic now because everyone is copying them idek :lol:

    The opening shot of the Newfoundland lighthouse unless it's Cape Breton. I've been to both - but I don'trecognise the angle of that shot.
    I saw Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, then the Prairies obviously, and Vancouver, and the Rockies.
    My apartment building appears in the Toronto shot.

    Canada is the only nation I can think of that would put out a promotional video for an international competition it's hosting and show none of its own skaters actually skating ;). C/L, V/T, Wagner and Fernadez were all highlighted but not one Canadian skater was even shown (skating at least) :)

    Alwas thought in Canada people respect figure skating, but not only there own skaters, no? ;)
    Video is not pathetic and informal, but homey and warm :)

    Yes, that was my take on the vid as well. Scott, Tessa, and Patrick are the host speaking and welcoming the international skaters to their home. Seems appropriate to me. Ending was a little abrupt but the message is clear enough, Canadian figure skating stars welcoming the international figure skating stars. :)


    Thanks for the link pani.

    Yes. Canada respect everyone just like other countries. They must be so happy to be home and warm since they spend most life to train in USA facilities :D

    Me too! And it really hit me how much I'll miss them once they retire next year, love them! Was Vancouver the city they showed that was by the water? It was really pretty.

    And hello to the new posters (and any lurkers out there).

    I was able to positively identify the location of the following scenes below from the video. Not certain about the "exact" location of the others, although some are obviously from somewhere in Saskatchewan (prairies scene), The Rockies (mountain peaks), and the Pacific or Atlantic coast (lighthouse). I suspect this scene is somewhere in Montreal, but I can't confirm.

    Parliament buildings, Ottawa

    Toronto

    CN Tower closeup, Toronto

    Canadian Museum of civilization, Hull/Gatineau Quebec (view of Ottawa parliament hill across the Ottawa river)

    Vancouver
