I can't believe you actually like only one dance by D/S. I mean, I tended to fall even for their CDs! I remember their tango CD from few seasons ago... oh my, that was really something. Sparkles all around. They were the kind of team who could even make a CD look stunning, special and entertaining. And that's an ability only few have.

but anyway, aaah, the tastes... it's amazing how different people can see the same things in such different ways, isn't it?
I voted Delobel/ Schoenfelder because I think a career is ultimately determined by the quality, memorability and execution of the programs. I know I'll be re- watching many D/S programs as the years go by- starting with Frida all the way to Jacques Brel, with the Piano and Pink Floyd in- between, among others. Of course, it is a very subjective criteria.
Now , i believe their 2007 won is more valuable because they were great in CD,OD and FD ,not because they competed with Albena and Max and this coming from DenSta fan should mean something don't you agree ? As for both FD's - for me "Bonny and Clyde" was more refreshing and exciting than "The Piano" .But this is Just my"Arm chair fan" Humble Opinion which again gets us to the point that we all vote according to our tastes and i value each vote for D/S and B/A. BTW the fact that there is a thread for those teams means they both have a big impact on Ice Dance and figure skating.
Belgosto is my choice.
I never really got into Delschoes skating. I first saw them live at 2005 Skate America, and I didn't know who they were (I admit it, I wasn't much of a dance fan back then). I watched the OD and was really shocked they were placed so high. They seem like really charming people, and I really liked some of their moves, but the height difference always bothered me. Lots of people will disagree with me, but I think B/A had far better skating skills.
Boring discussions, never
How is a European title better than an Olympic medal and why is that mentioned? I'm surprised no one has mentioned B&A's many US Nationals titles.
Now let me ask you a question - how is a US National title better than a French title?
CNTR-F is your friend.who said it was?
You obviously haven't read a "Kwan vs. Not a US Lady" thread.Now let me ask you a question - how is a US National title better than a French title?
When it comes to the womens I saw U.S Nationals during the Kwan era as in general on par with Europeans. When it comes to dance U.S Nationals except for this year with B&A and D&W going head to head is just another Nationals.
Oh, ok, I think I get the point now. And yes, it's not the same with ladies and dance. Actually I think France has an awesome "school" of ice dancers so I really think the US title (from the era before the in-form D/W ) is quite comparable with the French title.
I'm sure Kurt Browning would trade all his World titles for an Olympic gold. Talk about a skater who was worthy of an Olympic medal!
Think of other winter sports--I recognize some of the Olympic winners of snowboarding, skiing events, luge, etc., but I honestly have no idea who won what in those respective sports' world championships, or how many times... Not to put down a worlds win--it's a great accomplishment--but I don't think it comes close to Olympic pressure. JMO.
