    I miss them too. They were my favorite ice dancers at the time. Cheesy Pink Panther, sexy crossovers and all. I liked their smooth skating and clean lines.

    Yep! This is FSU, and another hi-jacked thread that is allowed to go on adnauseum.
    There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!

    Jealous of all the hits it is getting?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    None of the current female ice dancers compare to Navka, IMO.

    Sara Hurtado is keeping the headbands alive! Hopefully headband power and lots of practice will help H/D reach the top (ten, at least?).

    Does Shpilband have any new teams? With or without headbands?

    Haterz are gonna hate!

    The truth is the future favors the Shibutanis. Plus this season's OD should be right up their alley and will put them back on track.

    No. In the US the future heavily favours H/D.

    Not surprised to see Tobias/Stagniunas going with Shpilband as well.

    Again, he'll be able to give them much more focus than Zoueva for whom D/W and V/M are the top priority.

    I don't want to argue about how they are in 'real life' because what I care about is how they appear on the ice and the overprotective parents story just seems consistent with that.

    And anybody can write anything on the internet because it doesn't require actually getting involved in any 'real' social interactions (I am a very good example of that ).

    But that is not what their problem is. Their problem is letting go, so exactly the opposite.

    I want to see them let go, have fun on the ice, show some personality, show some charisma, show some performance skills, etc.

    And stop skating safe, predictable, ballroom dances!

    (Of course with Zoueva choreographing their routines, that is not going to happen)

    Yes.

    I was being half-serious and I stand by what I said.

    Not allowing your teenage children to go on dates is just .

    If you want to be a bitch, at least have the guts to do it directly instead of making passive aggressive statements.

    And my number of sexual partners totally qualifies me to be an expert on slutty, sensual Latin dances.

    The Carnival is all about the sex.

    Hubbell/Donohue (there's probably more but can't recall them at the moment).

    She is, but she was not as good as her predecessors Krylova and Grishuk.

    It is officially the off-season.
