    Absolute Skating has practice pics from FD practice: Meryl has a new red dress! Wonder if she'll use it or if it's just for practice. It might be nice just to see a new one in motion.

    Meryl looks so great in vibrant red.

    I am placing my bets on it not being used in competition ahaha.

    I'm not sure if I actually like the dress. Definitely means it will show up in competition .

    Meryl looks stunning in any shade if red. But I prefer the first dress.

    I like both dresses but I'm betting, too, that she shows up in the first dress! I love that red on her and it's such a fiery contrast to Charlie. Like the hint of red under his black shirt, too.

    As predicted, Meryl is back in burgundy! (I'm a bit relieved.)

    Beautiful skate!! My heart is absolutely pounding and my hands are shaking! 110! And they make history, winning the GPF for the fourth time!!!!

    Don't give a rat's ass with the comments in the pbp...I love that they won and it was pretty definitive!

    Charlie said to Marina at the boards..."we skated with everything". They so did!

    First team to get four! YOU GO.

    Now crossing fingers that the second half of the season doesn't run away again.

    They did it again!!! Cheers to our 4-time GPF champions!!!

    They haven't done many changes in the FD since NHK and I still miss the circular steps entrance from the first version, but they still nailed it. Their win is really impressive considering Tessa and Scott have probably the best FD they've had in years and their Carmen is really not so easy to beat.

    I just hope this isn't one of the "win GPF, lose Worlds" seasons for them again. I want nothing more than to see them go into the Olympic season as World Champions.

    But... so far so good. Congratulations!!!!

    I woke up in time to see M/C again! I was so nervous until the scores came up! They must be thrilled.

    Well, last year V/M fell which helped D/W win, plus D/W lost the free dance last year. This year, they won both phases fair and square. I hope that's a good sign because I really want D/W to win Worlds again.

    We'll see what happens but it's good that they have better scores than V/M in every skate throughout the GP this year. This wasn't like last year when Scott fell and they had that 5 point lead then ended up with virtually the same FD score with V/M edging slightly. This was pretty clear...in both the SD and the FD they had almost 2 points more and I LOVE that they are getting the PCS! The judges are definitely seeing what we see and I love that Meryl and Charlie always deliver. It's never going to change (the criticism they get around here) and also the criticism towards the judges (which is seriously for me) but it gets so much easier to ignore the haterz the more Meryl and Charlie prove that they are the best.

    Anyway, SO happy for them and I hope the next half of the season goes as well!

    You are speaking my mind!

    The one thing I hoped for was for Meryl and Charlie to win or tie the FD (especially the PCS), even if they lost the entire competition. It was Kurt Browning's blog that made me want to see FD vengeance here, more than anything said on the boards. Now I hope this pattern continues.

    I'm still looking forward to seeing more good things happen to the FD (with Alex W) and improvement in levels for the FD and especially the SD. All in all, it was a good competition

    Jeez, all this bitching around about how Meryl and Charlie are overscored and all those conspiracy theories about the American Federation politicking in favor of D&W are just I've just read an opinion that someone has never seen this kind of politicking in the skating history. Really?

    I just wonder where all those haters were when Meryl and Charlie riddiculously lost bronze at the 2009 Worlds. Or when they lost the 2010 and 2012 Worlds for that matter.

    I just don't get it. It's like, just realize Meryl and Charlie are top class skaters already and enjoy the show.
