    I like how Bob calls Worlds the real championships. (I love bitchiness)
    He looks so pissed.
    He also says oat instead of out

    To play devil's advocate...Euros, 4CC, and Worlds are the only events officially classed as ISU Championships, so perhaps Scott was aiming purely for accuracy of terminology.

    Scott once said something like Tessa, while younger than him, is his more mature sister. Do you think he was right?

    Thanks for the link.

    After reading many comments about the FD red dress, I'm starting to agree that both Scott and Tessa need to have different costumes for the FD. I'm not sure what that would be, but they need to change the look they have right now.
    FD all the way. I actually love the pink dress concept for the sd, with maybe a slight tweak in the cut?

    Not really. I think Scott's more open and wears his heart on his sleeve, while Tessa is more reserved and controlled. So suppressing her feelings and keeping to "talking points" in a difficult situation is much easier for her to do.

    I like Scott's openness and warmth. The openness put him in hot water here, but I think you know where you stand with a person like that. JMO.

    ETA: Normally he handles himself well in interviews. Back when they were teenagers, Tessa was extremely articulate for her age and Scott was bit tongue-tied, and I could imagine him calling Tessa his younger but more mature sister back then. Often girls mature faster than boys anyway. But by the time they reached their twenties, Scott became very comfortable in interview situations. They did a great interview with Team Orange, in which they both gave interesting yet diplomatic answers to some potentially controversial questions. I think the current situation was a particularly emotional moment for him.

    Maybe. But I’m with flowerpower on this one. This is just another instance where the contrast in their personalities is on display – the extrovert and the introvert. Scott will fire away whatever on his mind and Tessa will keep things polite and proper and private. Sort of like a deep ocean with calm surface but underneath, there are probably sharks screaming “Scott is right, piss off on those PCS scores!” Sometimes I do wonder how these two who seems to have personalities at the opposite end of the spectrum manage to work so well together without driving each other mad all these years. The yin-yang is a good concept when it comes to art, but I think it’s useless when it comes to the practical day-to-day grind of real life. I guess this is where the respect comes in to big play for them, to be able to meet half-way and work towards a common goal, despite the differences.

    Thanks for the link. What I find rather fascinating in this case regarding VM and the subject of versatility is that a lot (well maybe some) of the typical figure skating fans (well at least from this forum) seems to have a tendency to first classify an ice dance program by its thematic content, (holding it to the standard of the other 3 disciplines maybe?) whereas a relative outsider like me would listen to the rhythm and look at the type of body movement being used in a program first before analyzing the theme, (which I think is what one usually do in the general world of dance, to classify types of dances into their genre that is). Even the above article arguing for VM’s range failed to mention the word rhythm, a glaring omission at least for me especially when one could argue that rhythm-wise, VM’s FDs have shown they can dance and move their bodies through a host of dance genre. From the arguments I have read before regarding this subject, I somehow get the feeling that in the world of figure skating, an ice dance team who skates to different themes (Love, death, time, space, addiction, or whatever other out there theme) but genre and rhythm wise would probably just be limited to contemporary/theatrical would be lauded as versatile, whereas a dance team who of their own free will have chosen to dance to waltz, Broadway/jazz, ballet, contemporary, and samba is one dimensional because the overriding theme of their FDs is perceived and clumped together as “lovey dovey.” I have to admit, that argument really is perplexing for me. Perhaps SYTYCD has influenced me too much to ever understand this point view.

    Yes, they are on the terrace of the Novotel (where the Orange Team did their interviews), the building in the background is the adjacent All Seasons Hotel.

    I was wondering about the black dress on Tessa and if anyone saw her practicing in it. If anyone did, then what did you think? I only saw some pics but no vids.

    I came across this short video from GPF practice. Doesn't show much, but it gives at least a bit of an idea of how the costume moves.

    Oh man I am out of the loop, but has a certain beloved, infuriating, inspirationally die hard vm fan left us? Because they feel unwelcome? That idea makes me feel so disappointed for this forum! It is supposed to give the fans a safe and supportive outlet and means to communicate, and if a truly devoted fan and participant of the forum has departed because that safe and supportive environment disappeared for them, then for the love, people, rise to the occasion and mend that bridge.

    I really disliked the dress from what we saw of it in pictures and after seeing it in motion from this short clip, unfortunately I dislike it even more.

    I know.

    I get the impression from watching them over the years that they "fill in the gaps" for each other, personality-wise.

    He is full of energy - sometimes too much energy, but her calmness keeps him on an even keel. She is perfectionistic and self-critical, but he is there to make her laugh and buoy her up. That's why they're so tight IMO - since childhood they've had a good personality "fit" and they have leaned on one another while they moved away from home, dealt with the pressure of competitions, etc.
