    Tessa is hip-hop expert, thats why i hope they will show modern choreo at least at show number.

    How do you think, when they talk about retreiment - will they skate at leat in shows?

    My youtube was acting up last night so I didn't have a chance to view. I will try again tonight.

    Just saw this: http://www2.macleans.ca/2010/03/11/t...0%94and-worst/

    9.3 Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue. Fine, I’ll be the one to ask even though we’re all thinking it: what would it take for our ice dancing gold medallists to make out in front of us just a little bit? I’m only talking about second base. The chemistry is such that seeing them on camera together is like watching the first two seasons of Moonlighting.
    Well, I guess V&M succeeded in creating that "feeling of love" Marina requested. Oh my.

    I particularly like that 'cos I was a big Moonlighting fan (even once interviewed someone from the show & named a pet after a character). And this reminds me - on the Television Without Pity sports forums, a few posters have been discussing whether it's weird to "'ship" real-life people like they do for TV characters.

    But that article ranking JoRo and V/M below the men's hockey team? Oh, Canada.

    Although it's always nice to imagine the possibilities of a good team branching out and doing different things, I decided I'm just fine if all V/M want to do is romantic, sappy stuff.

    I hate to think of such a young team retiring. I don't know about just doing shows. Is there even much of a market for that anymore?
    Also, I've gotten the impression that when Scott and Tessa talk about retirement it's about not skating together anymore at all because of wanting to do other things. If they'll still skate together, why retire?

    I so agree.

    But I figure it's like all that tabloid gossip at the supermarket checkout. They're free to publish that kind of junk and I don't have to read it. After accidentally coming upon some of that creepy stuff out there re. V/M (and some others), I've learned which sites to avoid.

    Not to get too OT, but I first saw Greg in a show when he was an 11 y.o. singles skater. He had a ton of personality then, and really impressed a pro skater who was the guest star of that show. But from what I've seen of him as a dancer, that personality has been much subdued. As others have said, he could still develop/ bring back that performance level. V/M are so good at so young an age, it's easy to forget that other dancers still grow and improve and peak even later.

    Oh, and re: Meryl - I have to put in a good word for her too. (This reminds me so much of how I like both pairs S/P and B/S. I like V/M and D/W too, although favor V/M.)

    Thats really interesting question. I cant understand, why they will not skate even in shows if they will retried? Tessa could go to the Universaty and in i think she could have time at leeast for shows.
    For me its hard to imaging what Scott will doing if they will not skate even in shows. I have feeling, that he need to skate, because its his job and if he didnt want to go to college, what he could doing now?
    I think he want to be a comedian

    I'm prepared to bet they'll go voidy again next season. I can see why they went back to romance but now that the pressure of winning Olympic Gold is off, they're "free" to explore artistically.

    LOL at the Maclean's quote. Is the whole of Canada shipping those two? But yes, their chemistry is so good that their romance is utterly belivable.

    My bad on mixing up the age requirements for Juniors (I'm always confused about this); thanks for clearing that up! On another note, I/K are leading J.Worlds by some 8 points and Paul/Islam have moved up to 2nd!! The Shibus dropped to 4th unfortunately, behind M/K. Sending good vibes to all the skaters! (For all we know, we might be looking at some of the Sochi medallists! )

    Is it possible to petition to have V/M guest star on SYTYCD Canada? (The choreo for the two routines is AMAZING btw). I'd really like to see them dancing on the floor, whatever the theme might be. I'd love to see B/A and D/W on the US SYTYCD too!

    Its look, like a lot off people think, that I-K is next V-M and will be champions in Sochi. I wonder - why russians didnt send them to JWCh year ago?
    But i more surprized with P-I results at this JWCh. How long they are skating together? They improved so quikly - i will not be surprized with there hig results in future. I think Skate Canada will send them to Shpilband-Zueva scholl if V-M will retierd.
    I think coaches didnt have time to work with Shibutanies fro this JWCh. I read Maia had problems on twizzles. But she is so young - they didnt need to go to seniors next season - they could win JWCh in 2011.
    And yes - o wish to see Tessa adn Scott in some dance shows or ice shows, like "Battle of the blades".
    And its interesting - maybe V-M will be motivated to stay, because someone could be younger OG champions?

    Paul & Islam have been together about one year. He sat out all of last season waiting to find a partner (he previous partner, Joanna Lenko, had to quit skating because of illness). Paul skated with Jason Cheperdak last season and they did not too badly on the JGP IIRC.

    As for P&I going to Zoueva, I'm not so sure about this. They are coached by Mitchell's dad, David Islam and I'm not sure he'll want to part with them. The big question mark for David Islam as a coach is political clout (internationally). If P&I do want to hit the big-time in seniors they'll probably have to switch at some point. But I don't know if they'd do it.

    Thank you! Did you saw OD video from oficcial JWCh site? If yes - who was with them. One of the coaches was Tyler Myles, but who was second? It was Michael dad?
    I think for good results at seniors they need to be more polished, look more senior and have politick support from coach and fedaration. Will see what they will doing after this good at JWCh

    Fan Q&A interview with V&M courtesy of NBC:

    Scott must have been doing a lot of talking because he's losing his voice.

    I am seriously starting to show my age. What does this mean, "shipping"? I am seeing it all over the place in the past couple of weeks and I have no idea what it is!!

    I just booked tickets to Torino! Our seats for the free dance are absolutely terrible but I am so excited to see the polished version of Mahler. It was definitely a work in progress when I saw it at TEB and the people behind me were yapping through the entire performance so I didn't really appreciate it. I missed the OD there so I'm more excited to see that.

    pani, no, I did not watch the video yet. I'll try to tonight. If the coach had darker coloured skin and spikey hair, that's him.

    I think for seniors P&I will need to be more expressive and project more. They have good technique - they'll just need excellent choreo and more expression.

    It's a shortened form of "relationship", i.e. wishing for them to be an item.
