OK, maybe this is particularly funny to a lifelong Michigander like me, but I at the pic of a Spartan fan's sign that Meryl tweeted today.
BWAHAHA! That is priceless!

That is too too funny!
Just here to say something thta I just notice, Charlie really look like thta actor from the Mentalist haha, both are cute.
omg, that tweetphoto was priceless! I absolutely love it! Wow, they are really getting famous! Course it would make me so happy for plenty of new fans to enjoy what we've been enjoying for a while now. GO Meryl and Charlie!
If they did Memoirs of a Geisha, they would get the same tripe about stealing a jr couple's dance (the Shibs) that they did about POTO (Chock/Zuerlein)
Although the intent was to mock, I'm glad they can laugh about it (as they should)! The Olympics definitely introduced ice dancers to the most unlikeliest of demographics.

I thought this was adorable beyond reason:
Jeremy Abbott's twitter:
Meryl's response:@Meryl_Davis You said you love me, but you won't follow me on Twitter?! That's not real love :'( you've broken my heart!
Hm, I want to see Meryl and Jeremy ice dance together now. Talk about tipping the cuteness factor. Watch out, Charlie...@jeremyabbottpcf I am following you, silly!
Oh and yeah, I think Meryl's voice is adorable. I can't imagine her sounding any different, it wouldn't be right!
Are Meryl and Jeremy really dating? haha, love both, would be the cutest ever!
I may have mentioned this before, but there's a part in the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" where (SPOILER ALERT, I don't know how to do the spoiler thing) Heath Ledger's character sings "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," and I remember thinking how good D/W might look dancing to that. It's very much in the vein of "Beyond the Sea."
I think the original version of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" sung by Frankie Valli is slower than Heath's version, thus harder to skate to, but it's a classic so it's been redone many times by many artists. I rather like Heath's version, with the high school marching band.
I think the trick will be to find what genres of music D/W can do that no/few others can, for the OD and FD. It explains many of their choices from this season. I was not a fan of the bombastic cuts from POTO in the beginning, but it showcased their power that few other currently competing teams have. I was not a fan of the crazy combo lift in the beginning, but who else can execute lifts like those? Only V/M and maybe one or two other top teams.
I like the idea of a more modern FD for D/W. I guess much will depend on the results of this Worlds, if they win silver again or upset V/M. Will they decide to keep doing what they know they're good at or try something a bit different? Just running down their past FDs:
Eleanor Rigby - Igor's brainchild
S&D - Marina and Meryl's
POTO - Marina and Charlie's
Does this mean Igor may be due for one? His ideas for D/W tend to be kinda voidy actually : dark, slightly tragic romance (Eleanor Rigby and Billie Jean).
