I didn't have my speakers turned on oops.
Thank you so much for that. I totally fell in love with them both. I've always been a fan but never had any connection with them as people. Caitlin is so pretty without all the makeup, and so cute and sweet as a person. Articulate too. Of course Andrew is but also comes across as a good person, and you can tell there's a lovely connection between the two of them.
Interesting article on the next phase of Barb Underhill’s career: Underhill giving hockey players the edge
"I'd think, 'Why do they turn like that?' or 'Why are they bringing their shoulders around?' I started studying the technique. I said to him, 'I can make these guys skate better,'" Underhill says.
The coach brought her on board to help develop the young players, who dreamed of making it in the NHL. Being on the ice gave Underhill a rush and she became intent on doing a great job.
Oh please. Silly pair guys.Dylan has been skating with the IceMen and Ice Nightmare before it since about 2000 and says with confidence "We are Victoria's Secret". Like some kind of a naughty 12 year old, Bryce challenged me to report that "we support boobies" - honestly ...boobies??

More article links about Royal Glenora's "Ice Memories" anniversary show are posted by WildRose in the US/Canada shows thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...t=78123&page=3Browning, who was in town to participate in Ice Memories, the figure skating show held during the weekend to help celebrate the Royal Glenora's 50th anniversary, said the club was the launching point for the quadruple toe-loop jump that made the world take notice of him.
"When I first started working on the jump, you could tell this could really be something," he said, describing a standout memory of his Edmonton days. "But I (practised) it late at night when no one was watching because I didn't want to be embarrassed."
Barrie Examiner article on their 4 National team skaters: http://www.thebarrieexaminer.com/Art...aspx?e=3139659
Joey Russell, Adriana DeSanctis, Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam are gearing up for training camps in June and September aimed to set them up for next winter's competitive season.
"It speaks to the diversity of the club that we have a dance team and a couple of single skaters" named to the national team, said Mariposa School of Skating coach David Islam.
