"This, after all, is opera, opera in New York, not some dainty pastime like professional hockey..." -- Chip Brown, NYT Magazine 24 Mar 13
Any sign of Gorshkova & Butikov ? or have they retired?
Yves Montand did introduce the song. Edith Piaf had a hit with it too. What a beautiful video. Thank you to whomever posted it. You made my day.
I don't really like his costume, but I think she looks great
Still have mixed feelings on the voidy ending - but I like the program on the whole
They got low tech marks (in the 30's) but good PCS's
I wonder how they will be judged internationally
Though I see some improvements with the speed and overall impression with Bobrova-Soloviev, the end of the program, the last minute or so is just anti-climatic, very borring and it completely lost my attention.
Does anyone know what Bobrova and Soloviev scored at last year's russian test skates?
I do agree the ending is anti climatic, the should edit the ending music cuts
shame we dont get to see Bobrova/Soloviev, Riazanova/Tkachenko and Ilinykh/Katsalapov doing the test skates at the same time to fully evaluate
And Bobrova looks lovely.
Also, they really scored 71 in an SD at a Russian test skate?!? I guess TAT must be politicking majorly against them.
I like it! But I hope he changes his costume. It looks so bulky and heavy especially as compared to her light and lovely look. The loose jacket just doesn't work, he would look much better with a more streamlined look. I think this will be a good SD for them.
