They're both looking for partners? I hope the split was amicable, otherwise I'd feel absolutely terrible for Emily in particular.
Probably meant except the Shibs....
I so hoped it would have been the shibs spliting. Sam/Bates, despite I don't like any of their programs, had much more interesting lines / edge work. SAD
Oh, I'm surprised and sad. I'm not fond of their programs, but they had nice qualities, and could have improved.
This is partly the result of "The Shib Factor." While Davis/White will be likely entrenched as the USA's #1 dance team through Sochi, it's the quick ascendancy on the Worlds scene of the Shibutanis (bronze medal at their first Worlds!) that has made the other top-5 or top-6 senior US dance teams re-evaluate whether or not they have the $$$ and the willpower to stay in the game through Sochi. Once the hope of being even the #2 dance team in your country is dashed, then it just becomes a very, very expensive hobby. I cannot blame Emily/Evan, Chock/Z, the Hubbells, etc. for pulling out of the game. Save your money and see the world in other ways.
Question...if no new partnerships materialize, what might the US podium look like?
"awwww....shades of Janet Lynn" - Dick Button on anyone who makes more than one mistake in their program.
So you all have one opinion?
I wonder if the Shibs shouldn't contract for personal security. At least if they skate in Europe.

To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
