    http://olympics.thestar.com/2010/art...elegant-tandem Awesome article.

    With an awesome quote:
    While Moir is dating another member of the Canadian skating team, there are no jealousies afoot – though some in their family circles still hope that romance might bloom with the dance couple.

    Isn't Rosie DiManno known for making up facts to suit her articles? I have trouble believing anything I read when I know she is the author.

    She's awful. She'll attend the same press conference as a dozen other news outlets, whether figure skating or some other topic, and her version is always full of conclusions and opinion masquerading as information.

    Google her sometime -she's very popular.

    Ohhh - I had finally figured out what it probably meant but I had no idea where it came from.

    This kind of stuff makes me feel old, too.

    I don't know the Virtue or Moir families, of course, but it seems improbable that any of them would actually say something like that to a reporter. They all seem to have much more class than that.

    This is the first time I read anything from her so I don't know.

    Does anyone know how you can see their Olympic performances again? I can't find the videos anywhere.

    I don't put too much trust in Rosie DiManno's conclusions, and she can be downright nasty most of the time. I suppose she would call it "creative writing", I call it "sensationalism" when it truly isn't called for in most cases.

    Yes I think this is highly unlikely!

    And thanks bookworm for the "shipping" explanation!

    I thought that fan "shipping" was a shortened form of worshiping. Fans that "worship" the skaters/actors/singers whatever.

    I've seen it used a few times in that context but it is mainly used to indicate a wished for relationship.

    It definitely means wanting them to be in a relationship.

    A common term I've heard for obsessed uber-fans of a celebrity is "stan" as seen in Eminem's video "Stan." Hahaha.

    And then the announcer told the audience that the night's anthem speaker was ... all of them! It was funny watching Scott belt it out but it was almost subdued compared to when he was at the top of the podium and had just received his gold medal. Tessa seems to be enjoying her "new job" of dropping in on hockey games and dropping the puck.
    Crazy about sports!

    Wow they sure are going around to many hockey games! Scott must be really excited!

    Haha yes I meant shipping as in wishing they were in a relationship. Thanks for the clarification bookworm!
