    Over the top ice dancing is fine. Kookiness in the sport can be overlooked. But over the top kookiness? A line has been crossed!!!

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    It's the blandness that is the problem.

    I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this new team, they do have a lovely look together. Will be interesting to see all the "new" teams this coming season, actually. Can't recall such a shake-up in ice dance partnerships in all my years of following ice dance.

    Methinks that "over the top kookiness" and "blandness" are in the eye of the beholder.

    Yes, having seen G&P skate, bland they ain't.

    Umm after seeing that video of Piper fresh-faced isn't the word i would use. She looks about 36 with way to much makeup.

    She's gorgeous, but I don't think Jammers was wrong about his assessment. If I didn't know that was Piper, I wouldn't think it was her.

    Gilles/Poirier are entered in the free dance at Octoberfest (entries). This takes place October 13-16 in Barrie, Ontario.

    It seems a bit early in the partnership to compete, but they shouldn't face much pressure here, so it might be a good idea to try things out in competition. We'll see if they show up . . .

    I think they just want to get feedback from the judges and the technical panel to see how they are progressing.

    It's a small local club comp so I think it's a good idea.

    I totally agree!! I for one liked Vanessa, but I felt there was no spark between them. They looked more brother-and-sister than any of the actual brother and sister teams!

    Well they WERE like brother & sister. They had been skating together since they were kids and I think in the French interview I posted earlier this year that Paul even said Vanessa was like his sister.

    It used to work well for them.

    I've been told that Piper tested her FD this week (and passed), and that the music is a mixture of Imagination from Willy Wonka, and Sweet Dreams by the Eurhythmics.

    Their music choices sound awesome and original! I can't wait to see Paul and Piper's programs!
