    So the Khokhlova thread got me thinking, which same-sex pairings would you like (or would have liked) to see? In competition (if it were legal) or just in an exhibition performance (more likely)?

    1) I think Khokhlova and Domnina could have made a great dance team. They both needed healthy partners, and Oksana always struck me as the Amazon type who could do some heavy lifting.

    2) I think Lambiel and Takahashi should perform an exhibition program together. The clips of their choreography session looked great. Imagine how awesome the sbs footwork could be.

    Emanuel Sandhu and Jeff Buttle (ButDhu... or SandButt) First off - the drama Emanuel would bring, then they would constantly try to one-up each other in an inter-pair rivalry, but then, imagine the artistic, inconsistent, outstanding hot mess it would be.

    Can we make this happen, please?

    I'd like to watch George Clooney and Brad Pitt going for it. Oh, is this not what you mean when you ask who we'd like to see?

    The thing I love about that clip is Stephane trying to land a triple toe in his other direction presumably so he and johnny could do it SBS in the same direction. By the end he lands one with a hand down!

    EDIT: was beaten to it!

    Or Weir & Galindo with an impressive throw 3A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzM4LM8NsbY

    Sadly but that might be the best option for both skaters since they both git terrible skating partners

    Navka and Grischuk!

    I read in an interview where Navka claimed SHE stole Usova's husband. In another interview I read where Grischuk said that Zhulin promised to marry HER.

    Maybe they could form a trio with Barbara Fusar-Poli.

    Zhulin and Morozov. They used to skate. They could date each other's students and marry each other's ex-wives.

    Paul Poirier + Andrew Poje - the porny factor would be astronomical.
    Massimo Scali + Luca Lanotte - see above
    Nikita Katsalapov + Ilia Tkachenko - see above

    :lol: The sleaze factor may threaten to destroy skating as we know it.

    I agree with those who said Chen and Kim. I thought Yu Na looked especially Chen-esque when she was skating her Larking Ascending LP.

    Aliona Savchenko & Tatiana Volosozhar - for the reason museksk8r stated
    Kira Korpi & Laura Lepisto - see above
    Miki Ando & Yukari Nakano - see above

    I liked the overhead lift that Dylan Moscovitch did with Rudi Swiegers. Searched briefly for that on youtube, but didn't find anything. Which made me wonder...the clips we see tend to be males doing various moves - any links to a female team doing something like a death spiral or side by side pairs spin? Imagine side by side spins by Alyssa Czisny and Lucinda Ruh. Just the thought of that makes me want to cry in sheer wonder/joy! :)

    I think a Tango program might be needed but in any case those two skating together would be too distracting for me. I don't think I can handle such awesome hair together on the ice. Takahashi's manga-inspired, sculpted and/ or gelled to the hilt hairdo PLUS Lambiel's naturally gorgeous, flowing manes......I just can't...

    Lambiel did say that he and Takahashi might perform Amelie together someday.

    Shabalin and Novitiski. Afterall they both have gammy knees (not sure which one has which gammy knee). And they have the hairy factor.

    For some strange reason I would pair Sinead Kerr with Faiella. I can't explain why - it just is.

    (I saw them in the group numbers in SOI, and 1) they have similar skating styles, 2) they were the only 2 out of the group that were always on the music and on the choreography. I had the thought they would look well as a duet- a male version of what Alissa and Sasha did- and it was sad that such a thing would be culturally unacceptable.)
